I’ve been trying to get this posted for days but everything keeps shifting. So I’m just going to post now … We have Wanty Corner, a lot about Mathieu van der Poel – both good (love his attackity racing!) and horrifying, we applaud Bahrain and Bora’s takin’ it to Ineos and much more. Go, quick, before everything changes again!
Tour de Suisse served up a wet Queen stage, fine attacking racing, a diminutive winner and the best darn trophy we’ve seen so far.
On a day the Vuelta a España rode up to the pristine medieval walls of Ávila, it was the team of race leader Tom Dumoulin bracing themselves for a barrage. However, the attacks from his nearest rival Fabio Aru never materialised and the Dutchman even managed to snatch a few seconds on his rival as Ag2r La Mondiale youngster Alexis Gougeard escaped to take the biggest win of his career.
