The Santini Spring Classics Tipping Competition

If you were one of the thousands of people that took part in our Tour de France or Vuelta a Espana tipping competitions last year, you’ll know how much fun these competitions can be. And if you haven’t done a tipping competition before, here’s your opportunity. In conjunction with Santini and velotipper, CyclingTips is running …


Vuelta Tipping Competition Recap

Well we tried to spice up the Vuelta and make it a little more interesting with a good ol’ fashioned tipping competition. There’s no doubt that these TKM guys have nailed down this competition with a winning format and it made the race much more exciting to follow. But damn it, I couldn’t tip a …


Vuelta Tipping Competition | The Business End!

You might have noticed that we’ve backed off on our Vuelta tipping reports over the past week. Not to worry – the competition is still alive and well and the trash talk continues behind the scenes. However, as wide-open and tightly contested as the Vuelta is, my gut feel is that most people are only …


Vuelta Tipping Competition | Stage 10

HOLA! The final stage before the first rest day and its been a long slog for the riders in the Vuelta so far. From all reports its been a bumpy Vuelta with more climbing here than either the Giro or Tour, and we are really just starting the climbing! This week we head off to …


Vuelta Tipping Competition | Stage 9

I give up. My Vuelta tipping is hopeless. I’m now switching to a KOM strategy since it’s what I’m doing the least horrible at.


Vuelta Tipping Competition | Stage 8

After another godawful tip last night trying to get some sprint points. I’m now sitting in the ‘Farolillo Rojo’ (or Lanterne Rouge). I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a Vuelta rest day. Grand Tour tipping is hard work…


Vuelta Tipping Competition | Stage 7

I’m nearly 44 minutes down on GC already and my man Tyler Farrar crashed out last night. My luck isn’t quite as bad as Farrar’s, but my wounds run much deeper. I’m glad to hear that Farrar is okay but I have to appologise to him. This would have never happened if I didn’t jinx …


Vuelta Tipping Competition | Stage 4

My stage 4 tip was Joaquin Oliver Rodriguez which proved to be a darn good pick if I don’t say so myself. Unfortunately I didn’t gain much time on GC, but gobbled up some good sprint points and I’m back in the game. And if the truth be told, I completely forgot to put my …



Our overseas PRO tipster, Chris  D’Amelio, racing for Cinelli gives us the inside scoop for Sunday’s classic – Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Well the early season classics are truly into full swing! The cobblestone battles produced some exciting racing and amazingly we saw the same names itched onto the trophies as in the previous editions of both Paris-Roubaix …


Ronde van Vlaanderen TIP?

Ah yes, the  Ronde van Vlaanderen.  This Sunday is when the Northern Classics begin and is when the pro cycling season starts for me.   I can’t pronounce it, but apparently it’s Klingon for Tour of Flanders.  The 22% deciding Koppenberg is back and I’m pumped to be watching it on Sunday. I’m TIPPING that the …
