Neben doubles wins at Route de France

by CyclingTips

Amber Neben extended her lead at the Route de France, winning the fourth stage by 18 seconds ahead of Janneke Ensing (Parkhotel Valkenburg) and Carlee Taylor (Team Liv-Plantur). Tayler Wiles (ORICA-AIS) moved up to second overall but is nearly a minute down on Neben.

The stage was the first mountain test of the race with a 6km long climb to the finish.

“Neben was super strong on the climb and it was a pretty solid finishing climb, around six kilometres and probably nine or ten percent,” said ORICA-AIS sport director Gene Bates.

“Tayler did really well and is in good spirits and good shape. The girls will support her as best they can for the final two days and we will see how best we can come out of it. She’ll certainly give it a red hot crack.

“Tomorrow is going to be important and another tough day with two category one climbs and a category two climb to finish with.”

    A couple of things struck me when I was watching the track races this morning.

    1. How good would it be if the pursuit was ridden without the assistance of coaches calling the pace!

    2. Time for standardised bikes in all track competitions, the amount of money being spent in each Olympic cycle is starting to get ridiculous. Perhaps the Japanese Keirin Association should take over this part of the sport’s governance from the UCI.

    As with plates, mugs and cutlery, I always put my waterbottles into the dishwasher (after every use), so I don’t think we’ve got a problem here. Whey should anyone have?

    Reminds me of the bacteria-in-clothes discussion: If you wash it after every use like every sensible person would, you won’t have a problem.

    And you don’t need to be a pro(s budget) to know and do that.
