Between them, Dutch riders Marianne Vos (CCC Liv) and Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans Cyclingteam) have won 10 of the last 13 editions of the Flèche Wallonne Féminine. With her fifth consecutive victory at the Belgian Classic last Wednesday, UCI World Champion van der Breggen matches the five wins of Marianne Vos (2007-09, 2011 and 2013). Mitchelton Scott’s Annemiek van Vleuten took her second consecutive second place of the season in Belgium (after Amstel Gold Race Ladies).

The now familiar Alaphilippe – Fuglsang breakaway duo (after Strade Bianche and Amstel Gold Race) again went head to head at La Flèche Wallonne. The Frenchman got the better of Astana Pro Team’s Jakob Fuglsang (DEN) to take his second consecutive victory at the mid-week Classic and his third of the season after Strade Bianche and Milan-Sanremo.

⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

The mountain bike downhill season promises to be exceptionally hard-fought, with only 1 second separating the first four men in the first round of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in Maribor, Slovenia. Finally, it was UCI World Champion Loic Bruni (FRA) who took the men’s win for Specialized Gravity in front of Great Britain’s Danny Hart (Madison Saracen Factory Team), Australian Troy Brosnan (Canyon Factory Downhill Team) and American Charlie Harrison (Trek Factory Racing DH). Equally exciting was the battle between British riders Rachel Atherton and Tahnee Seagrave in the women’s competition, with Seagrave (Transition Bike / Muc Off Factory Racing) riding 0.855 seconds faster than multiple UCI World Champion Atherton (Atherton Bikes) in the final to take the win. Fastest qualifier, Australia’s Tracey Hannah (Polygon UR) finished third.

2019 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup - Round 1

27 April| Manchester (GBR)

SEE MORE PHOTOS

⚊ WHAT HAPPENED ? ⚊

The first two rounds of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup demonstrated that competition is wide open, with no athlete making podiums on both days.

After a clean sweep of the podium in round 1 of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup with multiple UCI World Champion Joris Daudet, Jeremy Rencurel and reigning UCI World Champion Sylvain Andre the French failed to confirm in round 2 the following day.  Round two winner Kye Whyte celebrated a home victory in Manchester (GBR), beating 2015 UCI World Champion Niek Kimmann (NED).

In the women’s competition, Round 1 victory went to UCI WCC trainee Simone Christensen, who outrode Dutch riders Judy Baauw and Merle van Benthem. However, only Baauw made the following day’s final, which was won by Manon Valentino (FRA). Of note in the women’s competition was the return to high-level competition for Mariana Pajón - fourth in round one - and a crash in Saturday’s semi-finals for UCI World Champion Laura Smulders, who came back to make the final (finishing 8th) in round two.
