⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

While the world was predicting great things of Slovenian Primož Roglič at the start of the Giro d’Italia, another Slovenian was setting off for a journey towards his first UCI WorldTour victory… at the Tour of California. At just 20 years old, Tadej Pojacar (UAE Team Emirates) rode superbly throughout the 7-day American race to take the overall classification, including victory at the Queen stage 6 up Mt Baldy. Not to be overlooked is another Slovenian, Simon Špilak, in 6th place overall in California. Youth dominated the overall podium with second and third placed going to Colombian Sergio Andrés Higuita Garcia (21) and Denmark’s Kasper Asgreen (24).

⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

After pulling on the leader’s jersey after the first stage of the Amgen Tour of California Women’s Race empowered with SRAM, Olympic and UCI World Champion Anna van der Breggen ensured nobody would take it off her. Second on the second stage and in the bunch on the final day, the Boels Dolmans Cyclingteam rider claimed her second UCI Women’s WorldTour victory of the year after the Flèche Wallonne Féminine. South African Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (CCC-Liv) made a remarkable comeback one month after injuring her back in a crash at Amstel Gold Race Ladies to finish third in California behind second-placed Katharine Hall.

Although all eyes were on UCI World Champion Nino Schurter at the start of the opening XCO round of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, it was another Swiss who claimed victory: Mathias Flückiger. After taking the lead on the third lap of the Albtstadt course, Flückiger won by a convincing 32 seconds over the Netherlands’ Mathieu Van der Poel. Schurter only managed sixth place, but Switzerland proves its depth of talent with five riders in the top ten. The Women Elite race was won by reigning UCI World Champion, American Kate Courtney in front of Switzerland’s Jolanda Neff.

A record 369 athletes from 43 countries vied for glory at the second round of the 2019 UCI Para-cycling Road World Cup in Ostende.

Austrian Walter Albinger won the H3 time trial, while Frenchman Riadh Tarsim raced to road race victory in a nail-biting three-way sprint against Belgium’s Jean-François Deberg and Canadian Joey Desjardins. At the end of four days of competition, the Netherlands topped the medals table with 11 gold medals, followed by the USA and Australia with six golds each.

Giro d'Italia

11 May - 2 June

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING ? ⚊

The first rest day of the 2019 Giro d’Italia sees Italian Valerio Conti (UAE Team Emirates) in the overall lead after nine stages. But after his second time trial victory on May 19, Slovenian Primož Roglič (Team Jumbo-Visma) is moving up the classification and currently lies in second place. The next two flat stages could well see Conti hold on to the pink leader’s jersey until Thursday’s hilly 151km stage between Cuneo and Pinerolo followed by two stages in the mountains.
