It’s been a year like no other, of that there is no doubt. And while we’d never wish for a repeat of 2020’s decimation of the racing calendar, both professional and amateur, the racing we did get was as exhilarating as anything we’ve seen in years – all three Grand Tours going down to the wire and some great one-day racing in between. We’ve also seen some inspirational efforts from people taking to two wheels to raise money, volunteers who make local races happen continuing to work behind the scenes, and clubs ingeniously adapting what they do for their members. So now it’s over to you to vote. From page 24 you can read about the people shortlisted for a 2020 CW award. The categories that need your input are highlighted on…

2021 tour de france includes double ventoux stage

Next year’s edition of the Tour de France will be the first to feature a double ascent of Mont Ventoux. The race will use two different ascents of the Giant of Provence on stage 11. The first will start in Sault and is slightly more gentle averaging five per cent but very long at 24km, while the second is the better known ascent from Bedoin which averages just under nine per cent and is 15.7km long. Then the riders will also have to show their descending skills as they drop to the finish in Malaucene. There will also be a double ascent of the Mûr de Bretagne early in the race to help establish a pecking order. The race, which will start in Brittany on 26 June before heading down towards the Alps and…

carthy rides into vuelta contention with angliru win

Lancastrian Hugh Carthy has the talent and temperament to challenge for the overall win at the Vuelta a Espana after he stormed to victory on the Alto de l’Angliru on Sunday, his former team boss said. The 26-year-old EF rider entered the race’s second rest day in third place and just 32 seconds off the red jersey of Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) after he attacked twice to put time into all his rivals on the 25 per cent slopes of Spain’s hardest mountain. It was Carthy’s maiden stage victory in a Grand Tour, but John Herety, who signed Carthy to his JLT-Condor squad in 2013, said he has it in him to take the fight to his more decorated rivals. He said: “I think that’s what he was doing on Sunday, I…

giro win shows ineos has transformed, says ex-ceo

Tao Geoghegan Hart’s success at the Giro d’Italia and a possible win at the Vuelta a España are both vindications of Sir Dave Brailsford’s methods, with Ineos Grenadiers having already transformed themselves after their recent Tour de France disappointment. That is the view of the team’s former CEO Fran Millar, who told Cycling Weekly that while criticism of the British super-team at September’s Tour was fair, predictions of its demise were premature. Indeed, just five weeks after the Tour in which one stage win was all they mustered, Tao Geoghegan Hart won the Giro d’Italia and claimed two of the team’s seven stage wins. In Spain, Richard Carapaz is in with a chance of winning his second Grand Tour. “Dave took a lot of grief after the Tour, people saying he should go…

tao’s week in pink

Any young rider who wins their first Grand Tour will find that the week following it is something of a whirlwind. For Hackney’s latest star, Tao Geoghegan Hart, it’s been no different. The Londoner did a round of TV interviews on the Monday morning speaking to both the BBC and Good Morning Britain about his win in Milan. He told the ITV show he had been in “perpetual motion” since the end of the Giro. “I’ll do my very best to do what I’ve always done… I’ll definitely try and kick on, of course I want this to be only the start,” he said. Then, exempt from quarantine restrictions as a professional athlete, the Londoner returned to his home town where he’s spent time seeing his family, who he hasn’t seen for nearly…

cw5000 november challenges

There are just two months to go in the CW5000 and for all of you chasing the total, they are two dark, wet months. But don’t let that get in your way. Good kit, good lights and sensible routing means you can still get some good miles in before the end of the year. As ever, we have two challenges for you to aim for as we try and keep you motivated. Remember, life’s tough enough at the moment, so if you’re not going to hit the total, don’t beat yourself up. Congratulations to our first team finishers – Lee, Gary and Jon (Cazn’t Beat a Good Ride) finished a while back, but we insisted they came up with a team name before we listed them. Well done guys. 1. Complete…
