Final KM: Suisse Stage 5, Aviva Womens Tour Stage 1

Heartbreak on the line in a breathless sprint finish, and a mountain top ride to glory. Get the tissues ready – it’s a rollercoaster of emotions on today’s FINAL KILOMETRE.

Tour de Suisse, Stage Five, Brig-Glis to Cari 126.4km

Cruelly denied a stage win at the Giro, BMC’s Darwin Atapuma made no mistake today. El Puma attacked on the last climb and had just enough in the legs to hold off Warren Barguil (Giant-Alepcin). Ag2r-La Mondiale’s young gun Pierre Latour put in a fantastic ride to place third and take the overall lead. He’s on the same time as Wilco Kelderman (LottoNL-Jumbo) and holding 5secs on Sky’s Geraint Thomas.

I defy you not to get teary along with Darwin in these Velon CC highlights.  Full highlights here

Over the Gotthard Pass….

From roadside cheering at the Criterium du Dauphine to leading the Tour de Suisse. What a difference a week makes

Atapuma attacks!

Aviva Womens Tour, Stage One, Southwold to Norwich, 138.5km

Boels-Dolmans continue their winning ways at the Women’s World Tour as Christine Majerus makes it nine victories for the team. The Luxembourg national champion launched her sprint early to catch lone leader Alison Tetrick (Cyclance Pro Cycling) in the closing metres. Marianne Vos (Rabobank-Liv) took second with Wiggle High5’s Giorgia Bronzini in third.
