start line 31.10

When Rod Ellingworth was announced as the new man in charge of the Bahrain-Merida Pro team, along with the move to bring McLaren and its operations deeper into the running of the team, Mark Cavendish must have thought all his prayers had been answered. Approaching the end of his career, with his position at Dimension Data tenuous following his non-selection at the Tour de France, his options for 2020 were limited. Take a look at the WorldTour teams then start crossing out those with a sprinter, those without the budget and those who just wouldn’t fit. There weren’t many options left. Then Ellingworth joined Bahrain and the stars aligned. Ellingworth is the coach who turned Cavendish into the rider he is, and one of a few people that the Manxman will listen…

records tumble at national hill-climb championships

Pro riders Ed Laverack and Hayley Simmonds both stormed to first-time victories at the National Hill-Climb Championships in Devon on Sunday, smashing records in the process. Laverack sliced 47 seconds from his own course record and took victory by nine seconds. “The course suited me — I’ve been targeting this event all year” The Llanelli-based 25-year-old, who rides for SwiftCarbon, continued the form that has seen him win several events this season including the Welsh Champs, clocking 11-37.0 while runner-up Paul Double (VC Venta) was around 29 seconds quicker than 2015 hill-climb champion Richard Bussell (AeroCoach). Strong wind and rain greeted many riders to the 3.125-mile Haytor climb out of Bovey Tracey as they did a recce of the course on Saturday, but conditions had improved significantly by the following day with a tailwind…

cavendish confirms signing for bahrain merida

Mark Cavendish has finally announced his transfer to Bahrain-Merida for 2020, which Cycling Weekly reported last month. The British sprinter, who looked strong at the London Six Day last week, will make the switch from Dimension Data and will be joining his old coach and mentor Rod Ellingworth, who has taken over as team principal at Bahrain. Cavendish, the winner of 30 Tour stages, will also be re-partnering with British motorsport company McLaren, which is now 50 percent backer of the Middle-East-based WorldTour team. Cavendish and McLaren worked together to design the Specialized bikes he rode at HTC-Highroad. Bahrain-Merida have not revealed the length of the contract. Announcing the move, the 34-year-old Cavendish said: “Joining this team is the fulfilment of a long-held ambition for me and is super-exciting and motivating. You could even…

my view

ROB HAYLES Former pro If you take a look at the newly-formed composition of the Bahrain-Merida management structure, then Cav’s move there should come as no great surprise. Rod Ellingworth, who now heads up the squad, has been instrumental to most of what Cavendish and a great number of the British riders have accomplished. If you know, then you know. But to casual followers of cycling, Ellingworth will probably not come high on their list of conduits to success for riders from these shores over the last 14 years or so. Rod set up the Academy where the likes of Swift, Stannard, Thomas and Cavendish himself learnt their trade. He nurtured them, coached them, on and off the bike. Gave them the tools to become as good as they could be. Cavendish…

rocking the six-day lifestyle

Apparently the riders in the men’s field at London Six Day go out after the racing most nights, get back to the hotel in the (no longer very) small hours of the morning, then sleep till the afternoon in order to do it all again. They’re basically rock stars. If the women’s field has the same routine, I’ve never been invited. My Friday evening went like this… Our last race finished at 10pm. I did a bit of a warm-down then sat in our cabin. Each pair of racers gets a cabin for six-day races — it’s a wooden box with a curtain, a cushion and a lamp where you can shut yourself away from the mayhem of the party outside for a bit. This was the first time I’ve had one…

racing ahead

Track Cycling World Cup round one (November 1-3) The opening meet of the six-round Track Cycling World Cup takes place in Minsk, Belarus. British Cycling is sending its national team and Team Inspired, while trade outfits Huub-Wattbike and BEAT CC will once again be looking to make their mark on the international stage. There are six World Cup rounds in total this winter, with Glasgow staging round two the following week. Koppenbergcross (November 1) Riders tackle the legendary and iconic climb of the Koppenberg in Flanders, with thousands of yelling spectators guaranteeing a memorable event. Last year Toon Aerts (Telenet-Fidea Lions) triumphed in the men’s race, and Kim van de Steene (Tartoletto-Isorex) won the women’s race. It’s the first race in this season’s DVV Verzekeringen Trofee that was won overall by Mathieu van…
