It’s been a difficult year for charities, and the Dave Rayner Fund is no different. Set up in the 1990s following the tragic death of the young pro, it has over the years sent hundreds of young riders abroad to race, finding them teams and backing them financially. Some have turned pro, while others have gone on to careers in the cycling industry. Sadly, the pandemic hit the fund’s two main fundraisers: their dinner and the Etape du Dales sportive. We were reminded, however, of just how pivotal the fund is to the careers of some of our top riders. Both Adam Yates, yellow jersey wearer through the early stages of this year’s Tour de France, and Tao Geoghegan Hart, winner of the Giro d’Italia, are Rayner fund alumni. The good news…

carthy poised for future gc success after vuelta podium

Peston-born climber Hugh Carthy has cemented his place among the pantheon of Grand Tour contenders with a magnificent podium place at the Vuelta a Espana, further proving there is a strong upcoming generation of three-week racers from the UK. Just weeks after British cycling fans celebrated the Giro d’Italia victory of Tao Geoghegan Hart, 26-year-old Carthy has emerged as the next stage race sensation from the British scene with a relentlessly attacking performance. He eventually finished 1.15 off the winner Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma), in third place. After he put himself in a podium spot with his win atop the Alto de l’Angliru at the end of the race’s second week, Carthy made certain of his place with an impressive time trial performance, finishing fourth on the stage and putting 24 seconds into…

britain’s upcoming grand tour talents

Tao Geoghegan Hart (Ineos Grenadiers) 25 While his victory at the Giro d’Italia puts him in the category of Grand Tour winners rather than up-and-comers, there are few that expect his success to peak with last month’s result. Much like Carthy he’s a talent that’s been steadily building to the point he’s reached now and there’s good reason to believe his potent mix of climbing ability and time trialling will be even better in the years ahead. Tom Pidcock (Trinity Racing) 21 A multiple world champion in junior and U23 ranks across a raft of disciplines it’s easy to think his attacking style and CX background would make him well suited to the Classics. But he has a slim build and underrated climbing ability. He won the Baby Giro this year, taking three…

‘i was falling apart’ - stannard forced into retirement

He is one of the hardest, grittiest riders there is,” said Ineos Grenadiers team principal Dave Brailsford last week as he paid tribute to former British champion Ian Stannard, as he was forced to retire. Just how gritty wasn’t apparent to the public but Stannard has been training and racing with the great pain of rheumatoid arthritis for more than a year. “I did Paris-Roubaix last year and after that my wrists were super-sore, which is kind of normal but it just never really got better,” the Ineos Grenadier told CW last week. “I changed bikes thinking maybe my position wasn’t right, I just need to get to the end of the season. My wrists just got sorer and sorer and were swollen. I kind of ignored it to the point where…

stannard’s greatest hits

National Championship road race, 2012 Takes a solo win in a race that Sky dominated with four riders in the top five. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, 2014 The Sky rider confirms his billing as a Classics force in the making, taking his biggest win to that point by outsprinting Greg Van Avermaet. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, 2015 Stannard outfoxes three Ettixx-Quick Step riders, including Classics legend Tom Boonen, to win in convincing fashion. Paris-Roubaix, 2016 Equalling the best finish by a Brit in this race, he comes third in the famous Roubaix velodrome as Mat Hayman sprints to victory.…

brit smashes three-hour barrier for 100-mile tt

Former British 24-hour time trial champion Jonathan Shubert smashed the 100-mile record last week, taking it under three hours for the first time. Shubert set a time of 2:57.59, riding from Milton Keynes to Norwich. The record was still being verified by the Road Records Association (RRA) at the time of going to press. It was more than 10 minutes off the previous record of 3:08.15 he’d set less than two weeks earlier in wet conditions. That attempt hadn’t exactly gone according to plan. The hoped-for tailwind had “fizzled out” but riding his Giant Trinity with his own design of aero bars he was still confident he could best the ‘100’ record of 3:11.11 set by Ian Cammish in 1993, given the advancements in aerodynamics since then. “My route disappeared from my…
