According to this article BMC will be riding a special version of Dauphiné which takes place in Switzerland... :p

There was a recent error in the article about Nizzolo: this year was not his first Giro, he already did it last year

In the latest article about Bakelants, it says "sports director Tony Gallopin"

Regarding the stage 9 report by Barry Ryan:

"Froome himself tracked a cheeky attack from Alejandro Valverde on the way down the Menté, showing none of the jitters that did for Luis Ocaña in 1973, ..."

Perhaps he means 1971, as Ocana won the race in 1973 (not sure if the Mente was even on the parcours in '73). As for jitters, every report I've read of Ocana's final day on the 1971 race suggests that he was matching every attack Merckx could make, whilst descending in a thunderstorm. Merckx crashed at the same time as Ocana; it has been suggested that Merckx's crash caused Ocana's. It was only Zootemelk and/or Agostinho crashing into Ocana that did for him, not the jitters. Don't rewrite history!

Read this and tell me if "no" should be "now", or "not":

The French Senate report was due to be published on July 18 but the politicians have no backed down on such a controversial date – the Tour de France was due to finish atop L'Alpe d'Huez. Instead the report will be published after the Tour de France.

in the mont ventoux picture gallery the picture caption of virenque winning on the summit from 2002 reads in part, "...in the 2002 Tour de France, the last time the climb was included in the Tour." even though it was included in the 2009 tour.

It seems that the feed that Froome and Porte got from the Sky car was such a shock to the CN reporters that it has caused the CN Blimp to go into an endless Orbit above the Alpe.....for it has been circling for almost 12 hours as this is written (ie - Live Coverage is still on)....the crew presumably having bailed out around Dutch corner to drink with the crowd.

This is neither a Spanish rider, nor is it Rojas. :D
(That photo keeps getting used with this incorrect caption periodically. Might be time to change it.)

Okay, I don't know where the mistake is, but take a look at Garmin's start lists at the Vuelta and the World Ports:

Vuelta:

111 Daniel Martin (Irl)
112 Caleb Fairly (USA)
113 Tyler Farrar (USA)
114 Koldo Fernandez De Larrea (Spa)
115 Alex Howes (USA)
116 Michel Kreder (Ned)
117 Nick Nuyens (Bel)
118 Alex Rasmussen (Den)
119 Johan Vansummeren (Bel)


World Ports:

80 Nathan Haas (Aus)
81 Michel Kreder (Ned)
82 Raymond Kreder (Ned)
83 Martijn Maaskant (Ned)
84 Glenn O'Shea (Aus)
85 Sébastien Rosseler (Bel)
86 Peter Stetina (USA)
87 Steele Von Hoff (Aus)

No offence against Michel, but I don't think he's able to participate in two races at the same time! :p

No, Stephen Roche did not finish 3rd today and move into the overall lead at the Vuelta.

And stop letting Phil Liggett write the photo captions :p

Most major nations have nine riders, although Belgium are down to just eight due to slipping down the rankings.


Belgium only has 7 spots for the RR.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/report-acevedo-to-garmin

At current, information is few and far between, but Lefevere made public the peculiar statement that Acevedo had made some "unfortunate statements about the team lately," he told Wieler Flits. “Though I still think that he could win six UCI races a year with us.”


Lefevere didn't say this about Acevedo, but about De Gendt, for whom a spot on the team has opened up after Acevedo's no-show.

Every statement is 'peculiar' if you don't speak the language...

And furthermore, there's no such thing as "few information". If anything, it's "little information".
