Very bad news, particularly on a personal level as for the first time since moving here, a major bike race was coming to Derby. A few of us from work were looking forward to pretending to be Belgian for the day. Knocking off at 1300 then getting mildly+ drunk whilst watching some of the best bike riders in the world race round your hometown.With teams being aware that the Women's Tour was likely not going to be held, which has now been confirmed, they might ot have wanted to travel over just for one race, even if it is in and around London.
I was surprised that Uno X did not send one or two riders up the road in the last 20kms, instead of bringing back attacks - They did not use their resources wisely. Previously posted that I could not understand why Jayco let A.Fidanza go, but chose to retain riders who are not even continental standard.
I saw some nice hug shots after Roubaix, but this one takes the cake chocolate chicken!
Looks like Cavalli is still not fully recovered mentally and/or physically. Pretty wild that Frain did not even get a dsq in tdff for that stunt.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that she finished in the second group, cause it looked like she was about to get dropped earlier in the race, but I definitely don't think we'll see her dominate the Ardennes finishes year. Hopefully she can both mentally and physically recover in time for the Giro.
they pulled her from Strade Bianche didnt they because they said she was still suffering from concussion from the tdff crash ? which could be persistent headaches,nausea and dizziness/loss of balance, not ideal for going racing a bike on.
she got hit pretty hard she probably doesnt remember anything about the crash or that whole day fwiw,I know when I hit my head quite hard, nothing as bad as the hit she got, but I had concussion for best part of a month and its something that came in waves with peaks and troughs, it took time (as theyll keep telling you) to feel ok again, its not a linear recovery.
Queen of the top 10s without a win. She's actually getting better at sprinting, but that's a relative measure, and with the current strength of SD Worx and Trek she needs a race where she's getting to the line alone or they make a complete mess of things tactically to allow a group where Kasia's going to be the strongest rider left in a sprint at the end.Niewiadoma hasn't won a race this decade. The longest win drought for a top tier rider in the peloton?
