Vuelta a España preview

The 2014 Vuelta a España begins this Saturday and, judging by the startlist, the Spanish Grand Tour is arguably shaping up to be the best of the lot. Mikkel Conde put together this preview.


Liege-Bastogne-Liege preview

It has been a great European spring of racing. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and it’s time for the last of the Spring Classics for 2014: the 100th edition of Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Mikkel Conde wrote the following preview of the race.


Paris-Roubaix preview

With Ronde van Vlaanderen now behind us it’s time for the third big Spring Classic of the season: Paris-Roubaix. Sunday’s race will be the 112th edition of the “Hell of the North” and with all the big favourites on the starting line, we should be in for another great show. Here’s Mikkel Conde’s preview of […]


Tour of Flanders Preview

It’s time for the second big Spring Classic of the season: Ronde van Vlaanderen, or the Tour of Flanders. This year we have all the big favourites on the starting line and we should be in for quite a show come Sunday. Here’s Mikkel Conde’s preview of the big race.

Race preview: Amstel Gold Race 2013

After watching some hard racing on Flemish and French cobbles in recent weeks, we now turn our attention to the lumpy Ardennes Classics. Wednesday’s Brabantse Pijl provided a good indication of the riders to look out for in Sunday’s Amstel Gold Race.


Race preview: Paris-Roubaix 2013

After Fabian Cancellara’s momentous ride at Tour of Flanders last weekend, he appears to be the biggest favourite to win the 2013 Paris-Roubaix this Sunday. But the beauty of this epic race is it’s unpredictability and, realistically, the winner could come from almost anywhere within the peloton.

Race preview: Tour of Flanders 2013

It’s been a tantalising start to the Flemish cobbles season, with E3 Harelbeke won by Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack-Leopard) and Gent-Wevelgem won by Peter Sagan (Cannondale). Many people are suggesting this year’s Tour of Flanders will be a battle between those two given Tom Boonen (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) is nowhere near the form he had last season […]
