Womens 2018 General News and Discussion

It always slightly disappointing when a rider opts out of the bigs, but I'll be sad to see Katrin Garfoot slip somewhat away once the circus leaves Oztown. I almost wish she had discovered road cycling a bit sooner, because she's an athlete who seems still to be growing and surely had more wins in her.

Elsewhere it was good to see Annette Edmondson get an early win. It's a lot more cosmo at Wiggle-Honda these days: think I'd be right in saying that no rider on the roster has been there since the beginning. Can't wait to see what they can get out of Barbieri and Stewart (once she's mended).

    So Spratt is going to win the TDU again, then ...  :-x

    She's very handy at the lumpier, short stage races, the sort of event that the women's calendar still rather lacks, in my opinion. You have the Women's Tour (of Britain), TDU, Emamukeen Bira, Thüringen and a couple of French races but perhaps a few more would enable the peloton to diversify a bit.

    There really isn't much solid racing out there for the featherweights, for example, or the TTers.
