MICHELIN POWER TUBELESS Just about the only thing the new Michelin Power range of road tyres share with their predecessor is the name. Michelin recently released the 2020 Power range at Mont Ventoux in France and Bicycling Australia’s Dr Michael Hanslip was there to test the new tyres (there’ll be a full report in the next edition!). There are five distinct tyre lines in the range and eight different products including tubeless road, tubular, time trial, gravel and cyclocross. The new tubeless version tyres will be available in 25, 28 and 32mm widths. Tyre weights, pricing and a release date are not yet available but expected early in 2020.

the noosa classic: an insiders view

CYCLISTS, WE ARE AN ODD BUNCH, A PECULIAR social subset. We are those oddities that enjoy the feeling of general fatigue that long hours in the saddle create. We rise before the sun to train and, at times, spend hard-earned cash on equipment to make very marginal gains. This peculiar peloton is growing in size across our country, despite the odd bit of media-induced persecution. The enjoyment and benefits of our sport are such that events like Gran Fondos continue to rise in popularity. In Australia there is a growing number of Fondo events and an increasing range in the style of mass-participation rides on offer. 2019 delivered the second running of the Noosa Classic, the fourth Bowral Classic and the announcement of two others. There has also been exciting news…

vision 2020

NOSTRADAMUS WAS NOT A CYCLIST. But imagine if he was. What might the famed French astrologer make of the next twelve months in cycling? Can Chris Froome make a successful return from devastating injuries? Is women’s cycling set to take a major leap forward? Who will seize Olympic gold in Tokyo? Will Julian Alaphilippe deliver a Tour de France encore? Or will Team Ineos reassert its stranglehold on the Grande Boucle? Looking at cycling tech, how many rear sprockets is enough? Will 2020 be the year rim braking descends into its final commercial death spiral? And how much further will e-cycling grow? Of course, the answers depend largely on who you ask. Alas, Nostradamus was unavailable. But plenty of eminent cycling folks were. From commentators, manufacturers and race organisers, to…

bjorg lambrecht tribute

DURING STAGE 3 OF THAT SCENIC AND POPULAR WorldTour event the shock news of a serious crash was delivered. Bjorg Lambrecht, just 22yo, had crashed after hitting a safety reflector and was in a critical condition at the scene. He passed away a short time later while undergoing an emergency operation in hospital. It was later reported he had suffered serious chest injuries including internal bleeding. Extremely talented, Lambrecht had recently won the U23 Liège–Bastogne–Liège and finished second to subsequent Tour de France winner Egan Bernal at the Tour de l’Avenir. Many Aussie cycling fans would remember Bjorg for his stubborn perseverance at the 2018 Santos Tour Down Under. The young rider, then 20yo, made news for being omitted from the Tour by the UCI due a technical race license issue. Refusing to…
