Cam Wurf’s USA Pro Challenge Diary: Stage 5

It was a pretty quiet day here for me at the Tour of Colorado. After all the excitement of yesterday’s stage I was greeted with the harsh reality of the efforts made to chase down Jensie and my pins where far from happy from the moment the flag dropped. Today’s stage was tailor-made for a […]

Cam Wurf’s USA Pro Challenge Diary: stage 4

Little beauty!!! Finally some delight for the green machine here in the rarefied air of the Rockies with Elia “The Green Missile” Viviani demolishing the field in today’s very selective bunch sprint in Colorado Springs. Yesterday was perhaps the lowest of low days for the team in all my years with the team with none […]

Cam Wurf’s USA Pro Challenge Diary: stage 3

It was the queen stage of the USA Pro Challenge today and with a man called King (Ted) in the Cannondale clan we figured it was a good omen for the green machine! We had a very simple objective today — be in the day’s breakaway as it stood a good chance of arriving at […]

Cam Wurf’s USA Pro Challenge Diary: stage 2

It was a good old fashion four seasons in a day here in Colorado. As my good mate Timmy Duggan said at the start: in the rockies always pack a warm pair of gloves just in case! He wasn’t wrong and by the time we had covered the 170km between Aspen and Crested Butte we […]

Cam and Richie’s excellent adventure

On Thursday I gave Richie Porte and Cam Wurf the keys to hijack the CyclingTips Instagram account so they could document their 400km ride around NE Tasmania. Amidst the regular season media circus, Grand Tour bubbles, and “business” of cycling, this story simply shows two cyclists who aren’t that much different from you and me […]

Cam Wurf’s Vuelta Diary – Next stop, Madrid!

Stage 20 of the Vuelta was considered to be the final real stage before tomorrow’s parade into Madrid. Everyone who arrives at the finish today, barring mishap, tomorrow should finish this year’s Vuelta a Espana. They certainly designed a hum-dinger of a stage and everyone in the bunch knew there would be no free kilometers […]

Cam Wurf’s Vuelta Diary – Now that’s racing!

Today’s stage was an absolute cracka! Katusha took the race by the scruff of the neck and by days end the stage winner came from their ranks. The first few kilometers went to the usual script. Ratto was first to open the throttle and in a blink of an eye 17 men had joined him. […]

Cam Wurf’s Vuelta Diary – New buddy in the bunch

Today our team manager had one simple demand of us: don’t miss the breakaway! Miss it and your chasing it!! So with that, we all knew it was easier for us to be in everything that went up the road than have to chase it all back. The team shared the load of following all […]
