Tour de Pologne 

03-09 August | Poland



At just 22 years old, Russian Pavel Sivakov signed his first UCI WorldTour stage race victory at the Tour de Pologne. After finishing second in the penultimate stage six, the young Team Ineos rider took the lead on the seventh and final stage from Team Jumbo-Visma’s Jonas Vingegaard (Denmark) who lost over 10 minutes to the favourites on the final day. Race victory could have gone any way, with only a minute separating the first 16 riders at the start of the final stage. Sivakov dedicated his victory to Belgian Bjorg Lambrecht (Lotto Soudal) who died after a crash on stage three. The same age, the two riders had raced against each other since the age of 17.

2019 UCI Artistic Cycling World Cup 

10 August | Bokod (HUN)



The World Cup rankings remain unchanged after the third round of the 2019 UCI Artistic Cycling World Cup. Ten nations were represented in Bokod but it was again Germany that dominated with wins in the Single Women, Single Men,  ACT 4 and Pair Women. Switzerland’s Lukas Burri and Fabienne Hammerschmidt were the only ones to interrupt the German stranglehold, claiming victory in the Pair Open competition. Third in the first round in Prague (Czech Republic) in March then second in Merelbeke (Belgium) two months later, the Swiss pair finally tasted victory with their win in Bokod over the German duo of Patrick Tisch and Nina Stapf. The final round of the 2019 UCI Artistic Cycling World Cup will take place in Erlenbach (Germany) on November 20.



2019 UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup 

08-11 August | Baie-Comeau (CAN)



American Oksana Masters made waves in the last round of the UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup with her wins in the Women’s H5 time trial and road race. Making her return to para-cycling after the Rio 2016 Paralympics (where she finished 5th and 4th respectively in the two cycling disciplines), the 30-year-old athlete demonstrated that she will be hard to beat in Tokyo 2020. Masters already has Paralympic medals in rowing (London 2012), cross-country skiing (Sotchi 2014) and biathlon (Pyeongchang 2018). China headed the medals tables in Baie-Comeau with seven gold, two silver and four bronze, followed by the Netherlands and Italy.







2019 UCI Trials World Youth Games

09-11 August | Wadowice (Poland)



Sixteen countries were represented in the 2019 UCI Trials World Youth Games for riders aged 9-16, which is traditionally a springboard onto the international Elite trials scene. The opening Youth National Teams competition (between teams comprising riders from both genders and all categories) once again saw Spain take the honours with 650 points in front of Japan with 520 points. That result set the tone for the weekend with these two nations sharing out the gold medals between them: four for Spain (Poussins, Youth Girls, Girls and Benjamins) and two for Japan (Minimes and Cadets).

Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup

09 - 11 August | Lenzerheide (SUI)



The first two steps of the Women Elite downhill podium were occupied by the same athletes as one week ago in Val di Sole (Italy): Marine Caribou (FRA) got the better of Australian Tracey Hannah to take her second consecutive victory. France had two men on the Men Elite downhill podium with Amaury Pierron (1st) and Loïc Bruni (3rd). Sandwiched between them was triple UCI World Champion (2002, 2012, 2013) Greg Minnaar. The 37-year-old South African was also second in Leogang (Austria) in June.

The Netherlands’ Mathieu van der Poel continues his winning streak, taking both the cross-country short track (XCC) and cross-country Olympic (XCO) wins in Lenzerheide, as he did in Val di Sole the previous weekend. Switzerland’s Nino Schurter and Mathias Flückiger finished 2nd and 3rd in the XCO, reversing their places from Val di Sole. In the Elite Women’s racing, Pauline Ferrand-Prévot won the XCC, but was unable to repeat her XCO win from Val di Sole, finishing 3rd behind Sweden’s Jenny Rissveds and Dutch rider Anne Terpstra.
