Men's Sprint 1/16 Final Repechages - London 2012 Olympics

Highlights of the Men's Track Sprint 1/16 Final Repechages during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Cycling is among the rare sports that have always featured on the Olympic programme. Road cycling, however, was not on the programme of the Paris 1900, St Louis 1904 or London 1908 Games, while track cycling wasn't in the programme of the Stockholm 1912 Games.
The first road event in Olympic history took place in 1896 on the marathon route at the first Games of the modern era in Athens. The race started in Athens, headed towards Marathon, then returned to Athens, at the Phaliron velodrome.
Olympic cycling was added to the women's programme in Los Angeles in 1984, with an individual road event.

GMBN Vs GCN | From Here To There: MTB Vs Road Bike Challenge

A question older than time itself, which is faster? A road bike on the road, or a mountain bike off road? To find out we went to Snowdonia National Park with the new Garmin Edge 530 and Edge 830. Will the more direct off road route be faster than the longer but smoother road route? Watch now to find out!

In association with Garmin.

The objective; find some welshcakes before racing to a picturesque picnic spot underneath a waterfall. The riders; our very own Neil Donoghue, and the contender, Hank from GCN. The routes (planned with Komoot); Neil will be taking on a 16 mile off road point to point, stopping off to get welsh cakes on his way to the waterfall; Hank will have 34 miles to cover, picking up the welsh cakes before doubling back on himself to get to the finish. The new Garmins feature MTB Dynamics, technology that measures your airtime, the difficulty of your ride, and rider skill (known as Grit and Flow). Rider to rider messaging will help Hank and Neil let each other know when they’ve secured their Welsh cakes. The live track feature will let them know if they need to get a move on!

MMR Factory Racing stands out during the last stage at Jaén zone
Valero and Ferreira battled for the stage until the last kilometer. The two pros raced together throughout the day they until they faced off on the final climb where the racer from Granada launched an attack that allowed him to solo the descent to Andújar and defend his lead. In the women's category, Fischer went for the stage win at kilometer 20; Hovdenak couldn’t sustain the chase. In this manner, the racer from Málaga became the winner of the day and the leader in the general classification.

The day began with a tight group in the men’s race who would go on to fight for the stage. Both Tiago Ferreira (DMT Racing Team by Marconi) and David Valero (MMR Factory Racing) controlled the group to make sure there would be no upsets. After a brief urban tour through the town of Andújar, the climbs soon began. It was a classic but hard stage that served as a transition day between the provinces of Jaén and Córdoba, with a new starting stretch along the fertile plain of the Guadalquivir River that crosses Marmolejo to connect with the La Centenera climb at which point they will have raced 70.1 km with 1,791 meters of elevation gain.

The men’s peloton was tightly grouped and commanded by the race leaders during the first several kilometers. Well aware of the technical roads and trails leading up to the Santuario de la Virgen de la Cabeza, nobody made any bold moves. In the women’s category, the fight for the top spot was exciting. The Norwegian Hildegunn Hovdenak (Nessetck) rode alone at the beginning. Chasing her at a razor-thin distance of 200 meters was the Málagan, Natalia Fischer (MMR Factory Racing), who didn’t want to yield any advantages. After a brilliant attack by Fischer at kilometer 20 she escaped alone, finishing the La Centenera climb solo and defending first place on the descent. Yesterday’s third place, Lisette Rosenbeck (Holte MTB), rode comfortably in third in today’s stage and repeated her third place finish.

At mid-stage and same as yesterday, Ferreira and Valero were riding alone and in the lead. The pursuit group of Miguel Muñoz (BUFF®-Scott MTB), Luis Leao Pinto (BUFF®- Scott MTB), Víctor M. Fernández (Wolfbike), and Hans Becking (DMT Racing Team by Marconi) rode in chase with a gap of a little more than a minute.

The stage’s second half, which is one of the most memorable sections of the Andalucía Bike Race presented by Caja Rural Jaén showcased the Caracolillos descent, the El Madroño climb, and the final descent via Camino Viejo. The pursuit group tried to catch Valero and Ferreira on the sinuous, technical Los Caracolillos descent to do battle at the stage’s end. But both the Granadan and Portuguese racers went tirelessly for the stage win, followed only by José María Sánchez (BUFF®-Scott MTB). With only a few kilometers to go to the finish by way of technical terrain and favorable conditions, Valero punched the gas and managed to break free of Ferreira to arrive solo in Andújar and claim the lead in the general once more.

In the women's category Fischer was forced to maintain an intense pace. The Norwegian was right behind her and taking aim at the general classification. Same as in the previous edition, Fischer claimed the stage and took over the lead in the women's general.

3 World Record Breaking Bikes - So Fast They Were Banned!

Jon visited the Boardman Performance Centre in Evesham in the UK. Now this place offers wind tunnel testing, fitness testing and even bike fits, we sent Jon to check out three totally custom bikes, that only fit one rider in the world Chris Boardman, a rider who took technical advances to the next level and combined with his fitness and obsession of numbers broke world records.

A few more geeky stats about this bike.
Believe it or not, it wasn’t all plain sailing to build this bike up
Originally only eighteen frames were made in total, one in 1991, four in 1992 and some more thereafter... I've managed to find out the serial numbers of some and a few facts about them.
1a was an unrideable prototype used in a wind tunnel,
2a was used at the Barcelona Olympics, presumably used by Boardman on the 27 July -when he broke the previous 4km individual pursuit world record by 4 seconds during qualification. And I cannot confirm, but I think he used it again during the quarter final ride the next day when he broke the world record, again. this time taking almost another 3 seconds off of his current world record.The 2a bike was also used in Leicester in August 1992 and set a 5000m world record! And was sold at Bonhams auction house!
2c was used by Boardman during the gold medal ride in Barcelona. Interestingly, no world record was set during this ride as Boardman caught his opponent Jens Lehman in the final and the race was over.
2b was used by fellow british pursuiter Shaun Wallace - In September 1992 he took a Silver at the world individual pursuit champs and there was a lot of pressure on him as the bike was deemed the original superbike, all the other nations seemed to want to beat Shaun because he was on one of these bikes and it appeared other nations had a point to prove.

Road cycling began as an organised Sport in 1868. The first World Championships were held in 1893 and it has been a part of the Olympics in the whole of the modern era. Road Cycling has 2 main types of competition – the Road Race and the Time Trial.

In a Road Race, the riders start together in a bunch. The courses are of varying distances (approx. 260 km for Elite Men and 140km for Elite Women in the UCI World Championships).

Road Races have several different formats. They can be held on a circuit in which riders race over numerous laps like in the UCI Road World Championships; over one-day from one point to another like the Paris to Roubaix Race; or in Stage races in which riders race on consecutive days like the Tour de France.

In the Individual Time Trial the riders set off 1-2 minutes apart, with the reigning Champion leaving last. Without the motivation of other riders around them and the slipstream advantage of bunch riding, the time trial competitor must rely on huge mental strength to keep up the pace and cover the course in the fastest time possible. At the UCI World Championships and Olympic Games, the individual time trial is raced over 40-50 km for Elite Men and 20-30 km for Elite Women.

In a Team Time Trial the principle is the same as for the individual, but teams of between 2 and 10 riders who remain together along the course race this event. The team time trial is on the programme at the UCI Road World Championships as of 2012 (6 riders per team) and is open to UCI ProTeams, UCI Professional Continental Teams, UCI Continental Teams and UCI Women’s Teams.

RACE REPLAY: Tour de la Provence 2020 Stage 3 | Mont Ventoux: Chalet Reynard Summit Finish

The third stage of the 2020 Tour de la Provence takes on the fabled mountain in Provence: Mont Ventoux. Starting near the mediteranian coast in Istres, the race winds north through the lavender fields of Provence and two categorised climbs before hitting the lower slopes of Mont Ventoux. Whilst the race doesn’t take in the full climb and finishes at Chalet Reynard, it is still the queen stage of the race. Arguably the hardest roads on the mountain are part of the 14km, and average 7.6%. Expect the GC to be decided in an explosive fight on the giant of Provence.

2019 Road Bicycle Racing - 2 Hours of Racing

Strava:
Location: Page Valley, Virginia
Click Show More ↓
Race: Tour of Page Valley Stage 1 Road Race Category 3/4

This is stage 1 of the Tour of Page Valley. 6 laps of a 10ish mile loop including 2 painful climbs. The peloton stuck together until about an hour and half in when I open a large gap between me and a group including a teammate of mine. Unfortunately my teammate had just pulled hard and someone in the break attacked and he fell off the back.

Then it was chaos as the peloton and I swarmed to catch the break. It came back together but the effort caused quite a few riders to drop from the peloton. It then stayed together until the finish where I got 20th out of 70 and a teammate got 3rd. Unfortunately the battery on the camera dies before the finish.

The 7 mile hilly, wet time trial resulted in one rider taking the GC by a wide margin, my teammate who got 3rd crashed and lost considerable time. I got 11th and 14th in the GC.

The final stage, a 45 minute crit on an oval motor speedway started off with lots of attacks. At 20 minutes to go, I attacked with another rider who dropped after 5 minutes. I rode alone for 10 minutes about 10 seconds off the front then was joined by 2 others and we finished just barely ahead of the pack. I took 3rd place for the crit and 10th for GC.


FAQ
Q: What kind of bike do you have?
A: 2014 Diamondback Podium with a Shimano 6800 Groupset.

Q: What camera/software do you use to make these videos?
A: Gopro 4 Black camera, Garmin 500 to collect data, and software called Dashware to put it together.

Q: Any advice for new cyclists to get into racing?
A: To start racing, begin by just riding on your own. Start with the basics. Get used to controlling your bike. You may need practice using drop handlebars on a road bike, switching gears, braking, proper fit on the bike, descending, cornering, climbing (learn not to fear hills and mountains), sprinting, practicing intervals, base training, putting on more miles or kilometers than you’re used to each week, motivating yourself, eating healthy, staying hydrated every day, losing weight, and basic bike maintenance. Before you win your local criterium or win the State Championship, you’ll have to study up on and practice these things. Ignoring these things may result in you being in a top 10 worst crashes video on Youtube.

Even if you’re a fast rider already, bicycle racing is not always won by the strongest. Once you have the basics down, you need to join up with some local group rides. Learn the etiquette of riding in a group. Learn how to ride in an echelon. Learn how to avoid overlapping your front wheel. Learn how to draft. Get comfortable riding in close proximity to other riders, maybe even the accidental bump every once and awhile. Learn how to hold your line going through a corner in a pack. Look into joining a team that supports new riders. Ask for advice. Take constructive criticism from riders you trust.

When you sign up for your first race, don’t panic. It’s no big deal. No one cares if you get dropped or lap the field. Cat 5 is for learning. Practice riding smooth and drafting other riders. Look out for riders who are unpredictable or unsteady and either get in front of them or far away.
