Now the season is up and running, I’m settling into the new rosters and getting used to a few new team names and the transfers that passed me by during the off season. Some of these take longer than others to sink in - I keep saying Bahrain-Merida, instead of Bahrain-McLaren, and I still have to remind myself that Tiesj Benoot is with Sunweb, not Lotto any more. Looking at the rosters makes me think the age of geographically-specific cycling teams is almost over. Yes, Ag2r and Groupama are still stubbornly French, each with 17 out of 28 riders from their home country. And Lotto is very Belgian - 16 out of 27. But other WorldTour teams are getting increasingly international. EF Pro Cycling and Israel Cycling Academy Start-Up Nation have…

Santos Tour Down Under, stage 2 Stirling, Australia 22 JANUARY 2020 The WorldTour peloton is reminded that races cannot take place in a bubble separated from the real world as it passes through landscapes scorched by the terrible bushfires that have been raging in Australia, at the Tour Down Under. Adelaide, the home of the race, was comparatively not hit by fires as bad as those elsewhere in the country, but the eerie, blackened surroundings still stood as stark evidence of the severity of the inferno. With many scientists believing on the basis of evidence and study that the fires, while part of a natural cycle, are largely exacerbated by man-made climate change, cycling is starting to look at its own very large carbon footprint. Deceuninck-Quick Step have announced that they will attempt…

Even by the modern standards of the international peloton, the 2020 iteration of the NTT team is an incongruous mix of nationalities and cultures. It has come a long way from its African roots - it didn’t start out this way, but Africa’s team now has a Japanese sponsor and a Danish manager. And, it has to be said, not many African riders. The 2020 roster counts seven, out of 29 - six South Africans and an Eritrean. It’s the lowest total in the history of the team, which started out as an 11-man squad in 2008 with exclusively South African riders, sponsored by MTN. Since 2008, the team has grown - the Qhubeka charity became a co-sponsor in 2011, and they started taking part in bigger events. In 2013 they went…

3.7 km The length of the sector of pavé in Paris-Roubaix that has been named after John Degenkolb, as a thank you for the role he played in saving the junior race from cancellation last year. Degenkolb, who won the monument in 2015, crowdfunded €17,661 after hearing the junior race - which he also won - was at risk due to a lack of funding. The sector in his name runs from Hornaing à Wandignies to Hamage. He’s got a lifetime ban from direct involvement in all sport, but Lance Armstrong’s former DS Johan Bruyneel has set up a sports management company. Called 7evenPlusTwo, after the Tour de France titles that were stripped from Armstrong, Bruyneel’s company branding and website even features images of him and the Texan. LONDON CALLING RideLondon is seeking a…

Where’s home? Home in my head is the Côte d’Azur so at the moment Cap d’Ail, but I’m about to move back into Monaco. Otherwise, home for me is the Adelaide Hills as well. It’s where my family still is and although my life is more in Europe, that’s still home-home for me. Always a place if I desperately need to go somewhere, that will always be home. What’s your favourite race? The World Championships, simply because I think they are the spectacle. It’s the race we all want to get selected for, we all want to get those rainbow bands and I think there’s something special about it always being in a different place, with different characteristics. What’s your favourite climb? The Col du Braus is always a nice one. It’s out the back…
