At the Cycling Weekly awards last December we crowned Peter Harrison as our 2018 Local Hero. Peter has spent his life in cycling, carrying out more roles, both volunteer and paid, than I could list here. He was a deserved winner and having Sir Bradley Wiggins present the award — Wiggins had won Harrison’s Belmont Trophy race in the past — seemed the perfect way to recognise his work. Now, in association with Freewheel.co.uk, we’re looking for the 2019 Local Hero to crown at this year’s awards night in November. While Peter Harrison set a high bar, there are lots of other deserving people out there, and they don’t have to have organised international races to be recognised. So what are we looking for? Put simply: the people who make a real difference…

thomas’s tour prep stutters as bernal wins

Geraint Thomas found himself in a race against time to get ready for the Tour de France after crashing out of the Tour de Suisse last week. One week after Chris Froome’s horror crash at the Dauphiné, Thomas, the Tour’s defending champion, came down on stage four in Switzerland. He was prevented from continuing by the race doctor, who feared he had suffered a concussion. Team Ineos’s worst fears were allayed after X-rays showed nothing broken and Thomas got straight back to training. He did, however, admit he would have to include some big rides in the coming week after missing out on critical race miles. Thomas will not be in Norfolk for the National Championships this week in order to complete his Tour preparation and will start in Brussels on July…

carthy still going strong

Hugh Carthy produced the ride of his career on the final day of the Tour de Suisse to take his first WorldTour-level victory. Fresh from his 11th place at the Giro, Carthy attacked five kilometres in to the shortened 101km final queen stage. He caught and passed the break before the summit of the first of the three hors catégorie climbs and almost three hours later soloed to an impressive victory in Ulrichen, near the Italian border. Having performed at the Giro, Carthy was under no pressure in Switzerland and part way through the race was already thinking of his mid-season break. “It genuinely wasn’t planned,” he said after the stage. “Two days ago, the stage to St Gotthard, I was terrible. Everything was tired, I wanted to be on holiday and…

young brits reign at baby giro as hayter takes multiple honours

Ethan Hayter added another batch of achievements to his ever-growing and impressive palmarès by winning the prologue, stage one and the points jersey at the Under-23 Giro d’Italia last week. Matt Brammeier, lead academy coach at British Cycling, said of the young star: “We took a team there not with any favoured climbers, and with Ethan we didn’t have any bold goals of GC, we just went in to win stages with the riders and the team we had.” It wasn’t just Hayter grabbing the headlines, as Great Britain placed five riders inside the top 15 during the prologue. Matt Walls then won stage two in a bunch sprint to make it three wins in a row before a stellar week was rounded off by Fred Wright, who broke clear from a…

madison-genesis races its final season

Madison-Genesis has announced it will fold at the end of the year after seven seasons as a UCI-registered outfit. Currently leading the National Road Series with Matt Holmes, and hot on the heels of Canyon-dhb in the Tour of Britain qualifying race, the team had looked in rude health. But in an open letter, published on its website last Friday, founder Dominic Langan said that it was time for Madison to invest elsewhere. “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved and the team is very personal to me,” he said. “However, the market is constantly evolving… I feel that now is the right time to bring the team to an end so we can invest in other market segments which are now showing much more significant growth potential.” Holmes, 25, who…

madison-genesis greatest hits

8th RideLondon Classic 2016 (Tobyn Horton) When the podium is occupied by Tom Boonen, Mark Renshaw and Michael Matthews, you know it’s been a meaningful day out — especially if you finish just a few places back in eighth. That was the experience of Madison-Genesis stalwart Tobyn Horton. The Guernsey boy joined the team in 2014 and is still there. 1st Lincoln Grand Prix 2016 (Tom Stewart) The 2016 edition of this famous race witnessed a changing of the guard, with Tom Stewart edging out 37-year-old four-time winner Russell Downing for the victory. It was made all the sweeter for Madison by the fact that Stewart’s French team-mate Alex Blain finished just a few places back in sixth. 1st National Championships 2018 (Connor Swift) Winning the coveted national champion’s jersey on the tough Beaumont Trophy…
