Transfer shorts: CCC stocking up, Greipel and Lampaert staying put

The rest days at the Tour de France offer riders a chance to recover from the intense racing but, in contrast, the days without racing are the busiest moments of the race for team managers and rider agents, as they work on deals for the next season. Riders transfers cannot be announced until August 1 under UCI rules but the rest day in Annecy saw a number of deals finalised, especially after Jim Ochowicz confirmed CCC as a replacement for BMC and Greg van Avermaet agreed to stay on-board for an...

Dan Martin: Riders are scared of attacking Team Sky

Dan Martin (UAE Team Emirates) was the only rider willing to attack the GC contenders on the opening mountain stage of this year’s Tour de France. The Irishman pushed clear of his rivals near the summit of the final climb of the Col de la Colombière, and although a headwind and Team Sky’s pursuit ended his time off the front, the stage 6 winner had no regrets. Martin’s acceleration provided a sharp contrast to what we saw for much of stage 10. Team Sky allowed a break that included race leader ...

Thomas misses chance for yellow jersey but eyes opportunities ahead

The pre-race prediction ahead of stage 10 of the Tour de France on Tuesday was that Team Skys Geraint Thomas would inherit the yellow jersey from Greg Van Avermaet (BMC). It was a sound hypothesis given that Thomas came into the Tour as the Critérium du Dauphiné winner and had not put a foot wrong during the opening nine days of racing. The Welshman – a superior climber to Van Avermaet on paper – started the first Alpine test 43 seconds in arrears, but ahead of the other GC contenders. However...

Tour de France: Mark Cavendish survives time cut with less than a minute to spare

Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) got through the first mountain test at this years Tour de France on Tuesday. But the 30-time stage winner almost missed the time cut, coming over the finish line of stage 10 at Le Grand-Bornand with just 33 seconds to spare. Cavendish, like a number of other sprinters, struggled on the first Alpine test at this years Tour, and was dropped from the main field. He made it into the gruppetto alongside fellow fast-men Marcel Kittel (Katusha-Alpecin) and Dylan Groene...

Adam Yates: On these shorter Tour stages, we race right from the start

The Tour de France did not get off to the best of starts for Britains Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) after he was caught up in crashes on both of the opening two stages, but things now appear to be moving in the right direction for the 25-year-old from Bury. After those difficult first two days, Yates and his Mitchelton-Scott teammates managed to steady the ship with their fourth-placed ride in the team time trial on stage 3, and Yates has steadily climbed the overall standings as the terrain ha...
