Sometimes it feels like barely a year goes by without the British racing scene facing, if not a crisis, then at least some serious, fundamental problems. Sponsorship, races, teams and riders come and go — that is the natural order of things. The issue right now is that many of these factors are coming together at the same time. Combine that with rising costs and ever increasing levels of bureaucracy and paperwork and you have a very serious issue. There are lots of concerned parties we spoke to for our feature (turn to page 28). The British scene has never had it as good as over the previous five or six years, with high-quality national and international races aplenty, and TV coverage and sponsors coming into the sport. Organisation has become ever…

evenepoel ‘not in his best shape’ as he cruises to algarve victory

Belgian wunderkind Remco Evenepoel fired a warning shot to his rivals after he won his biggest race to date at the Volta ao Algarve, where he said he wasn’t yet in his best form. The Deceuninck-Quick Step rider’s victory comes hot on the heels of his overall win at the Vuelta a San Juan earlier in the month. However, Evenepoel played down what that means for his chances at the Giro d’Italia in May. “No, no, that’s not my goal. I’m only working hard for my own goals. I’m working hard for two months’ time, I’m not in the best shape yet but I still have time, still a long way to go but I’m already happy with where I’m at now,” Evenepoel said. On Sunday Evenepoel beat time trial world champion Rohan…

my view

CW news editor Ever since his debut junior season when he demolished all in front of him and ripped the World Championship road race field to pieces, Remco Evenepoel has been tagged as the next big thing. Some will even tell you that he may be a once-in-a-generation rider that’ll win almost at will. And when you win 32 races (including classification jerseys) in a season with only 27 race days that’s probably a logical conclusion. At that time there was good reason to be sceptical. Cycling history is littered with ‘next big things’ that never blossomed into what we all expected them to be. Even the great Peter Sagan hasn’t proven to be the steamroller of the Classics that many thought he’d be. Evenepoel’s debut pro season did, however, do something to thaw…

stedman eyes yorkshire top 10 after biggest career victory

Canyon-dhb p/b Soreen rider Max Stedman has set his sights on a top-10 finish at the Tour de Yorkshire in May after racking up the biggest win of his career at the Tour of Atalya in Turkey at the weekend. The Berkshire-born rider raced to third place on the race’s summit finish on stage three. He then used his team-mates to defend his slender two-second lead in the intermediate sprints for bonus seconds on stage four to take the jersey. Stedman said: “The climb wasn’t an overly hard one. It was one of those five-six per cent fast climbs, it wasn’t goat territory. It all kicked off with a few attacks and little Ben Tullett got in a three and then I bridged to that three. Then with 2km to go Riccardo…

van der haar returns to winning

Lucy van der Haar (née Garner) made her return to the top step for the first time in nearly five years at the Dubai Women’s Tour. The 25-year-old had been expected to be a big force in the sport after she won the World Championship junior road race in Copenhagen in 2011. But she last won a race at La Route de France in 2015 when she rode for Liv-Plantur. She then spent three win-less years at Wiggle-High5 before joining her current squad Hitec Products last season. Following her victory she tweeted: “Can’t believe we just won the first ever. Can’t thank the girls and team enough for helping me win the GC in today’s stage.” Van der Haar’s victory was built on winning the sprint on the race’s first day. She then collected…

mapei return to cycling team sponsorship with uk club

The iconic multi-coloured Mapei cubetti jersey has adorned many of the sport’s greatest riders as they won Monuments, Classics and Grand Tours but it’s not been seen in action since the professional team folded at the end of 2002. Now the design will be seen in the peloton once more as it has been revived for small UK club Halesowen A & CC Academy, a junior and under-23 team of 10 riders based out of the Halesowen velodrome near Birmingham, after it struck a sponsorship deal with the Italian grout and adhesive manufacturer. Academy manager William Fotheringham said: “We actually got contacted by Mapei because their UK head office is close to the track and they have a policy of supporting local sports clubs.” As a cycling journalist, author Fotheringham was well aware…
