Thank you for riding with us at the inaugural Giro della Donna

Tired legs, sun-kissed faces and day dreams of endless, tree-lined roads. We have a bit of an event hangover today. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and better company for our inaugural Giro della Donna gran fondo. For the entire CyclingTips team, it was such a thrill to get off the internet for a […]


Tour de France stage 21 in photos

Some people have labelled the 101st edition of the Tour de France as the battle that never was. Nibali may have never had the chance to prove himself against Contador and Froome after abandoning early in the race, but the point is that he made it to the end of the race and showed his […]


Tour de France stage 20 in photos

The fans would have loved to see today’s individual time trial come down to a fight for precious seconds for the General Classification, but since Vincenzo Nibali’s Tour de France victory was assured, stage 20 was all about the battle for podium honours with only 15 seconds between second and fourth place. For the first […]

I’ll be the first to admit, when I saw Ramunas Navardauskas bridging up to his teammate Tom Slagter in the last 14 kilometers while dragging the rest of the peloton up to him, I thought it was a questionable move. It was inevitable Slagter was about to be caught and there was no way that […]

On stage 18 of the Tour de France Vincenzo Nibali once again showed that he is the strongest rider in the race when he rode away from past and present rivals on the Hautacam climb to claim the last stage in the Pyrenees. The race for yellow has been decided for over a week now […]

And so the Tinkoff-Saxo show continues. Following one of Michael Rogers’ best days of his career, Rafal Majka claimed his second Tour de France win today on stage 17. The Polish rider also increased his lead in the Mountains Classification over Joaquim Rodriguez by a considerable margin. In the race for the podium, it was a fantastic […]

Stage 16 was the longest day of the Tour de France, running 238km from Carcassonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon [profile] with five climbs, including the hors categorie Port de Bales before the run-in to the finish. It was predictable that today’s winner would result from a breakaway, and it was none other than Mick Rogers who who rose to […]

Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) claimed his second stage win in Nîmes after the peloton caught the two gallant breakaway riders in a thrilling finale. The day’s breakaway of Jack Bauer (Garmin-Sharp) and Martin Elmiger (IAM) had their dreams of a Tour stage win crushed when they were caught heartbreakingly close of the finish line, with an […]

Second on stage 13 in Chamrousse, Tour de France debutant Rafal Majka went on the attack again and stayed away from a long lasting escape to claim his first stage victory in Risoul while Vincenzo Nibali again showed his dominance and as he crossed the finish line in second place putting more time into all […]


Tour de France stage 13 in photos

It was the big day we were all waiting for and stage 13 certainly didn’t disappoint. The racing at the front of the field as outstanding, however Richie Porte’s hopes and dreams for a podium spot on the Champs-Élysées came to an abrupt end. C’est la vie, as they say. There will be many more […]
