The event follows its own traditions and includes 5 stages alternating between flat and hilly terrain. After a couple of years with high mountain passes included, which were typically climbed in 0 degrees wet and windy conditions I think those are more or less off the table for the indefinite future: it is just too early in the year...

After a busy Spring racing calendar, the month of May has come around fast and with it the Giro d'Italia: the only three weeks of the year when stage racing can actually be unpredictable and pink looks cool on blokes. :P

Now usually the facile business of trying to sum up an event in a single word happens long after the winners' podium has been dismantled but, before a crank has even turned in 2018, we ca...

Was just purging my old laptop of its stuff when I found this.... First part of a few which will be completed in time, weekly, monthly, quarterly. I can't say for sure. The posts will go in a chronological manner as far as possible.



The Austral Wheel Race is Australia’s longest surviving professional bicycle race, and the oldest continuing handicap race in the world. The start date of the Aus...

Tao Geoghegan Hart Q & A

One week and about half an hour from now, the Giro d'Italia starts in the quiet, typically Italian, town of Jerusalem.

Teams are beginning to be released, adverts are appearing on EuroSport: it must be time to get the game ready. 
Discussion in the Vuelta thread last season was in favour of following the UCI in reducing the size of teams, but keeping the budget the same.  Who can dethrone Fauniera, last year's winner?
