Mcewen gets a win and is back, but I wonder where CN pulled its translation from, they never referenced it. I believe "Renners" in Flemish when put thru an online translation program, becomes "runners" when everyone understands it as "riders" in Anglo idiom

It was an especially pleasing result for McEwen, who has faced a long road back from a serious knee injury suffered in last year's Tour of Belgium. "I'm really happy for this victory. It's my second career after the injury I had last season and that kept me from racing for 7 months and is a very important victory for me," he said afterwards.

"For me, the most important thing is that I have no discomfort in my leg, I feel fine and I can compete again with the best "

"The sprint was difficult, because I had to control runners and had many strong teams with runners at the finish. Skil-Shimano has prepared the sprint for the final kilometre and I jumped at 300 meters when I saw Freire go."

Is it "riders" or "sprinters"?

I can see sprinter translated as runner... but not rider.

Quotes were actually provided by the race organiser, in Spanish.

Spanish for "racers"

I don't know about in Spain, but Mexicans say "corredores" or "runners" for racers in cycling. They just use the word "sprintear" for sprinting.

I don't know about Spain, but in Mexico, they ask "Vas a correr?" Are you going to run? when they're talking about a bike race. Sometimes, one has to clarify that one likes to "correr a pie" (run on foot) to avoid confusion with racing a bike.

For sprinters, they probably just use some slight modification of the word "sprint" itself. The verb is "sprintear"

Flemish is actually very close to Dutch, but Belgians from the Flanders region most definitely speak Flemish and not Dutch.

Yes it's right. It is better to learn a language as good as possible. I can't speak Flemish but I can read and understand it. As my native language is German it was rather easy for me to learn by reading sites like Sporza or Sportwereld. -- I don't like automatically translated articles because there are too much mistakes.

Flemish is a variety of Dutch. Every Flandrian speaks Flemish, or one of its many dialects. It's nothing like Welsh, because Welsh is a separate language from English, and Flemish = Dutch.
