  1. Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) won the penultimate stage of the Tour of Guangxi on Saturday as fellow Italian Gianni Moscon (Team Sky) kept the overall race lead in China. In fog and rain, the 29-year-old Trentin streaked home for victory from a reduced sprint in the 212.2-kilometer stage five from Liuzhou to Guilin in 4:54:34. “It was really good today, we knew that if we did the climb hard then the top sprinters would be tired to do the sprint,” said Trentin. An initial breakaway of talent made up of Silvan Dillier (AG2r La Mondiale), Tony Martin (Katusha-Alpecin), Pascal Eenkhorn (LottoNL-Jumbo), and Ryan Mullen (Trek-Segafredo) was caught by the peloton as the race entered the hilly finale. The pace-setting in the bunch was largely made by Team Sky, protecting race leader Moscon, and Bora-Hansgrohe, looking to set up their fast man Pascal Ackermann. The peloton split on the third and final climb of the day, with the first category ascent sufficient to take the kick out of the pure sprinters. Trentin took victory from a reduced sprint impacted by a crash in the final 300 meters, with Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) placing second and third respectively. “I am really happy because it is my first win with the team and my first win in the European kit before the end of the season,’ said Trentin. Team Sky’s Moscon was seventh, enough to maintain his lead over his rivals in the general classification. The 24-year-old has a nine-second advantage over Austria’s Felix Grossschartner of Bora-Hansgrohe, with Russia’s Sergei Chernetski, riding for the Astana team, 14 seconds off. Sunday is the sixth and final stage over 169km in the city of Guilin.

  2. Lotto-Soudal’s Thomas De Gendt and Tim Wellens wanted to take the slow road home after racing the Il Lombardia on Saturday. The two WorldTour pros crossed the Alps and the Ardennes. Now they’ve just arrived back to Belgium. An early start Friday before dawn put them on the final 200km push to arrive to De Gendt’s hometown in time for the weekend. “We don’t regret this adventure, but won’t make any promises to repeat the effort,” De Gendt said Friday. “We could enjoy nature along our route, something that’s not possible in a race. Physically we still feel fine, but we are also happy to have a holiday now. We were surprised by the support we got and the number of people that followed our adventure.” The five-day, 1,000km excursion is the latest in what appears to be a budding trend across the elite ranks. Riders inside the highly tuned and under-stress peloton are searching for something more authentic than the pressure cooker of professional racing. Just call it the soul tour. Other recent iterations of the trend include Larry Warbasse and Conor Dunne who went on a self-described “No Go Tour” this summer in the wake of Aqua Blue’s collapse. The pair rode across the French Alps for a week on a trip that captured the imagination of fans across social media. Some might wonder why professional bike racers would head out onto real roads with real traffic without support of mechanics, soigneurs and road closures, but it’s one more example of how social media and cycling’s changing ethos is sweeping across the pro ranks. Trends across the cycling industry as a whole seem to be nudging away from elite pro racing and more into experiential events of gran fondos, bike-packing, and gravel riding. With professional racing becoming much more data-driven, the pushback sees many embracing more soulful cycling adventures. Then, the pro riders use their platforms on social media to share stories, photos, and more. Italian pro Daniel Oss (Bora-Hansgrohe) has also been exploring the genre with his “Just Ride” series, hitting Italian back-roads in a mix of adventure and training. “I was sick of racing. It was too much Strava records, too much training, and too much focus on racing,” Oss said. “We are always in the hotels, racing, in the airplanes, or training. We get to these amazing places during the season, but we never can enjoy them. I rediscovered the love of the bike. When I was young, I was just riding my bike for fun. That’s how we all started, right?” The ultimate bike-wandering experience was the “Thereabouts” project involving Dimension Data pro Lachlan Morton and his brother. In a series of three films starting in 2013, the brothers rode across Australia, the U.S. western deserts and the jungles of Colombia. That ethos seems to be fully embraced by EF Education First-Drapac and the arrival of Rapha, which returns to the WorldTour for 2019. Based in part on an in-depth study of how to best invest in bike racing, Rapha will be encouraging its ace WorldTour racers to compete in what’s called an “alternative” racing calendar that will include such non-traditional events as the Leadville Trail 100 MTB, Dirty Kanza 200, and the Transcontinental endurance race. “By bringing some of our athletes to grassroots and mainstream races across the world, we’re hoping to deepen the relationship between our team and other riders, and have some fun while we’re at it,” said EF manager Jonathan Vaughters. “We’re also going to give people more insight into the sport than before, showing a rare, unvarnished perspective of these athletes’ lives. The human element of cycling is very, very powerful.” For De Gendt, who is renowned for his long-distance breakaway acumen, he’s been thinking about doing something like this all spring. The Final Breakaway closed out a long season of racing. Wellens, a Belgian who lives in Monaco, decided to go along for the ride. The route back from Lombardia to Belgium took them over the Swiss Alps and the Vosges in eastern France, then across Luxembourg and Belgium, with a detour into Germany in what the pair said was to pay homage to German pro teammates Marcel Sieberg and André Greipel. They linked up with teammates Lars Bak and Maxime Monfort for dinners along the way. The roughly 1,000km trip was divided into six days of riding, but they made it back home a day earlier than expected. “We didn’t want to make it too hard,” Wellens said. “Riding 200km alone is very different than racing 200km in a pack.” The pair decked out their Ridley pro bikes with Apidura travel bags, one on the handlebars, another on the top tube and with a rear saddle bag. Each evening they’ve been posting photos on social media of themselves gorging on pizzas, Haribo candies, cakes, soft drinks and beer, the stuff of mere mortals. “It’s a cycling adventure,” De Gendt said. “Too often we’re on our bikes to train and to race. The essence of the bike is to ride when you want to and where you want to go. That’s why we’re doing this. We wanted to do something fun on the bike.” It’s all for fun now. The intensity of racing and the obsession with numbers and results will return soon enough.
  3. GUILIN, China (VN) — Eddie Dunbar had plans to race in the second division in 2019, but now takes advantage of Aqua Blue Sport’s sudden team shutdown and new Team Sky contract. The talented 22-year-old Irish cyclist found refuge in cycling’s biggest team when Team Aqua Blue announced its closure. In the next season, he has the chance to race alongside Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas and debut in a grand tour. “I appreciate what Sky has done to give me this opportunity,” Dunbar told VeloNews. “Obviously, Aqua Blue folding is disappointing. For this to all happen so quick is crazy but Sky were kind enough to get me involved, get me racing as quick as possible, to get to know the riders and staff. “It’s credit to them really, it shows why they are one of the best teams in the world, it shows the care they put in for every rider and it makes the transition easier for next year.” Aqua Blue’s closure put many out of work. Dunbar and others like American Larry Warbasse, who is joining AG2R, were some of the fortunate few to find teams. Dunbar, from Cork, won the Under 23 Tour of Flanders in 2017 and this 2018 season, placed eighth in the Tour de L’Avenir. Soon after Avenir, Dunbar heard Aqua Blue folded. But an opportunity presented itself. “It’s going to be a year of learning, going from Pro Continental to the WorldTour, and one of the best teams in the world. It’s a massive learning process. “I’m going to learn a lot racing with and for some of the best riders in the world. I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Dunbar has been unable to participate in many stage races. He wants to do so to “develop more” in the coming year. “I’ve been injured a lot in the Under 23s. I missed out on quite a bit of racing, so it’s nice to finish off the season with a bit more racing in China, and hopefully next year there be a bit more on my calendar as well.” Dunbar began racing in Sky’s blue and white colors mid-November in Italy’s one-day races. He closes 2018 in China’s Tour of Guangxi. Given how Egan Bernal performed in his first grand tour at the age of 21, Dunbar sees all sorts of opportunities. “You look at it, every year there are younger guys doing grand tours. Bernal is a year younger than me and he was in there smashing it in the Tour,” Dunbar added. “Age is a number. When is too young? When is too old? No one knows. We’ll see next year.” Read the full article at Dunbar takes advantage of Team Sky opportunity on VeloNews.com. View the full article
  4. Updated UCI equipment regulations for 2019 now render the Castelli Body Paint 4.0 speed suit non-compliant. The speed suit featured 'vortex dimples' on the sleeves and was controversially used by Team Sky during the 2017 Tour de France opening stage. The updated rules also affect Endura's Drag2Zero speed suit as used by Movistar Team, that also features a textured material on the sleeves to improve aerodynamics in time trials. Bioracer's speed suits, which recently dominated at the world championship time trials, feature ribbed sleeves aiming for the same aerodynamic effects as Castelli and Endura's offerings. It is thought the ribbed sleeve design will also become non-compliant. ADVERTISEMENT The full update to the UCI rule, in the chapter for Equipment - Section 3: riders' clothing states: "Items of clothing may not modify the morphology of the rider and any non-essential element or device, of which the purpose is not exclusively that of clothing or protection, is forbidden. "Modifications to the surface roughness of clothing are authorised but may only be the result of threading, weaving or assembling of the fabric. Surface roughness modifications shall be limited to a profile difference of 1mm at most. "The measure of surface roughness modification shall be made without pressure or traction on the clothing.

  5. Controversial Italian rider Gianni Moscon (Team Sky) took out the Queen stage at the Tour of Guangxi on Friday, soloing to victory at the Mashan Nongla summit and claiming the race lead for his troubles. Moscon jumped away from a select group on the 3km final climb, finishing the 152.2km stage from Nanning to the Mashan Nongla Scenic Spot five seconds ahead of Felix Grossschartner (Bora-Hansgrohe) and eight seconds ahed of Sergei Chernetski (Astana). Carlos Verona (Mitchelton-Scott) was 11 seconds back in fourth, with Rigoberto Uran (EF Education First-Drapac) in fifth with the same time as Verona. Stefan Küng (BMC Racing), Pascal Eenkhoorn (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Roger Kluge (Mitchelton-Scott) eventually broke away from the bunch after a contentious first hour of racing, and the lead trio built maximum advantage of 3:20 as the peloton and overall contenders waited for the 3km climb to the finish. ADVERTISEMENT EF-Drapac led the chase for Uran, while Trek-Segafredo also helped to set-up Gianluca Brambilla. Quick-Step Floors also chipped in, with Davide Martinelli doing some huge turns on the front. Küng was the final survivor from the breakaway as the chase picked up in the final 15km, but he too was back in the fold at the base of the final climb. Peter Kennaugh (Bora-Hansgrohe) tried an early attack, but Moson's move with 1km to go proved decisive, giving the 24-year-old his fourth win of the season.

  6. EF Education First-Drapac announced today the signing of 22-year-old American Sean Bennett from the Hagens Berman Axeon development team. Bennett won a stage of the Baby Giro in June and finished second on stage 3 of the Tour of California to Trek-Segafredo's Toms Skujins. “He won a stage of the Baby Giro,” said team CEO Jonathan Vaughters. "He almost won a stage in the Tour of California this year, finishing second to Toms Skujins, who I would say is the guy Sean reminds me of most. “When I called Sean up, my question was, ‘Are you a little pissed off that you’ve been looked over while other guys, like Neilson Powless and Brandon McNulty and some other high-profile U23s have been in the spotlight? Does that irk you?’ ADVERTISEMENT “And he said, ‘Yeah, it does.’ “I thought, ‘perfect.’” Bennett got his start in cycling as a high school freshman, following in his older brothers’ footsteps by joining NICA – the National Interscholastic Cycling Association that was founded in 2009 to develop an interscholastic mountain biking program for high school students across the US.

  7. Sean Bennett will make the jump to the WorldTour in 2019 with EF Education First-Drapac. The 22-year-old American rode with Pro Continental outfit Hagens Berman Axeon this season and enjoyed what he called his “biggest growth year.” He delivered solid results all season, winning stage 6 at the Baby Giro in June. EF’s team CEO Jonathan Vaughters saw the potential. In a team press release, Vaughters described the conversations that led to the deal. “When I called Sean up,” Vaughters said, “my question was, ‘Are you a little pissed off that you’ve been looked over while other guys, like Neilson Powless and Brandon McNulty and some other high-profile U23s, have been in the spotlight? Does that irk you?’ “And he said, ‘Yeah, it does.’” “I thought, ‘perfect.’” Bennett rose through the developmental ranks as a mountain biker, finding success in high school and then transitioning to the road. He is an all-rounder who still has time to settle on a particular area of expertise on the road. Now, he’ll have a chance to work that out at cycling’s highest level. “There are a lot of unknowns,” Bennett said. “And signing with EF offered me the most knowns in a world of unknowns. Having familiar faces around me — people I know, I like, I get along with — having that will ease this transition.”
  8. USA Cycling announced today that Derek Bouchard-Hall will step down as president and CEO of the federation at the end of this year after just over three years on the job. Bouchard-Hall, a former professional racer, took over from longtime USA Cycling CEO Steve Johnson in June of 2015. USA Cycling Board of Directors Chairman Bob Stapleton will serve as interim CEO until the federation finds a replacement for Bouchard-Hall, who "will lead a USA Cycling partner company that will issue a separate announcement next week," according to today's announcement from USA Cycling. “Deciding to leave USA Cycling to take on a new role was the hardest professional decision of my life," Bouchard-Hall said in a statement released with today's announcement. "I have loved serving the American bike racing community, and my heart will always remain firmly with USA Cycling. My professional career has focused on improving organizations and setting them on a new path. I am confident that I have done that at USA Cycling, and I am proud of the team we have in place which will continue improving our ability to support our membership. ADVERTISEMENT “I would like to thank the Board of USA Cycling for their partnership and support of our work the last few years," Bouchard-Hall said. "In particular, I thank Chairman Bob Stapleton and Vice Chairman Alex Nieroth for their mentorship, guidance and friendship.” Bouchard-Hall was brought in as a reformer of sorts after Johnson was accused by at least one cyclist of having knowledge of doping in the US professional peloton in the Lance Armstrong and US Postal era but not acting on that knowledge. Johnson denied the accusations. Bouchard-Hall is a former member of the US national cycling team and is ardently anti-doping. He was a member of successful American-based teams Shaklee from 1994-98 and Mercury Cycling Team from 1998 until he retired in 2002. His career highlights on the road include winning the US pro criterium championships in Downers Grove and competing in international events Paris-Roubaix, Gent-Wevelgem and Criterium International. He was also a member of the team pursuit squad at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com View the full article
  9. USA Cycling is on the hunt for a new leader. On Friday cycling’s American governing body revealed that current President and CEO Derek Bouchard-Hall plans to step down from his post at the end of 2018 to oversee a separate company. Bouchard-Hall, 48, took over at USA Cycling in June 2015, following the departure of Steve Johnson, who oversaw the organization for nine years. “It’s bittersweet. We like Derek and he’s put his heart and soul into this place, and we’ve benefitted from that,” said Bob Stapleton, USA Cycling’s chairman. “We want him to do what is good for him and his family. There’s no drama and we’re going to miss him.” Bouchard-Hall will remain as interim President and CEO through December 31. Stapleton said that USA Cycling has begun the process of hiring Bouchard-Hall’s replacement. The organization has retained a recruiting firm, which will work with a small selection committee within the organization to find a successor. The organization hopes to have a replacement hired by the second quarter of 2018, Stapleton said. “This is not our first rodeo. We did this four years ago,” Stapleton said. “We don’t want to lose any momentum, and [Bouchard-Hall] is helping us through the transition. We’ll make sure we keep moving forward.” A former national criterium champion and member of the 2000 U.S. Olympic pursuit team, Bouchard-Hall took over USA Cycling after working for online cycling retailer Wiggle. His racing background and impressive resume—Bouchard-Hall has an MBA from Harvard Business School and began a career in consulting with Ernst & Young—made him an ideal candidate for the position. But Bouchard-Hall took over amid a period of upheaval in American cycling. For many cycling fans, the specter of doping during the early 2000’s had tarnished USA Cycling’s reputation, as the governing body oversaw the development of the country’s top young riders. Shifts in participatory cycling trends, among other dynamics, led to an erosion of USA Cycling’s membership. And the organization’s lineup of corporate partnerships sagged. Stapleton praised Bouchard-Hall’s leadership during this tough period for the organization, and said Bouchard-Hall’s efforts led to success across the board. “I can’t say he fell short anywhere,” Stapleton said. “We’ve made dramatic changes in our informational systems and web and mobile tools. He rebuilt a bunch of relationship inside the sport with our core constituency. Athletically, we moved to a high-performance model. And overall, I think our management team is the best I’ve ever seen.” Stapleton said Bouchard-Hall’s successor does face challenges, namely in rebuilding a connection with casual and enthusiast riders. The successor must also grow USA Cycling’s lineup of corporate sponsors. “People are still riding but they’re doing things differently, and USA Cycling has got to adapt to that,” Stapleton said. “I don’t think the fundamental demand has changed.” In a release, Bouchard-Hall said the decision to leave was “the hardest professional decision of my life.” “My professional career has focused on improving organizations and setting them on a new path,” he said. “I am confident that I have done that at USA Cycling, and am proud of the team we have in place which will continue improving our ability to support our membership.”
  10. It isn’t easy for college kids to travel across the country for a national championship bike race. Most are on limited budgets, fitting in training rides around classes, and they have to negotiate all of the travel coordination from flights to rental cars to lodging. This weekend’s collegiate mountain bike nationals took another unexpectedly difficult twist for the University of Vermont team when they arrived in Missoula, Montana, only to find their bikes were destroyed in a fire. Something seemed wrong Thursday morning. The bikes were expected to arrive via FedEx Wednesday night, around the time their flight landed. The team had shipped most of their bikes across the country to avoid exorbitant airline fees. They did some errands Thursday, hoping to pick up their bikes in time to go pre-ride the race courses. As they were unloading groceries at their VRBO, a fateful call came in from FedEx. The truck had caught on fire, and the bikes were likely destroyed. “We were not sure if they existed anymore,” said UVM’s Nick Lando. “Then we start scrambling.” Lando and his teammate Mazie Hayden had flown with their bikes, so while the other UVM riders scoured Missoula for rental bikes and called every company they could think of, Lando drove Hayden up to the venue so she could practice on the downhill track. After all, UVM was the best team in the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference this season, and Hayden was the top downhiller. While they were up at Marshall Mountain, another teammate retrieved the bikes from the burned-out FedEx truck on the side of a road near town. The bikes were in pretty bad shape. “The conditions of bikes varied from totally turned to ash and not salvageable to the carbon in the frames had unraveled themselves,” said Lando. “We put our heads together, building bikes as quick as we could, taking parts and making Frankenstein bikes so we could get XC riders on bikes.” Fortunately, as they pulled apart their burnt bikes, a better option came up when Sarah Spencer made a phone call to Trek Bicycles. She spoke to Jed Gunn in e-commerce, who passed her along to Gary Whitebird in customer care. Whitebird had raced collegiate as both an undergrad and a graduate student and jumped at the chance to help save the weekend for the “Catamounts.” “They called in, kind of in a tough spot,” said Whitebird. “A lot of us here have ridden, raced, we all know that situation, especially in collegiate.” Late on Thursday, Whitebird and his team scrambled to find an option. They realized their California warehouse was the only option to get bikes shipped this late in the day. “They only had a matter of minutes to pick the bikes off the shelf to get them on a UPS trailer to hit that deadline,” Whitebird added. Trek reached out to one of their dealers in Missoula, Open Road Bicycle and Nordic, to see if they could build the bikes on short notice. “They didn’t even question it. They just said hey there’s a team that needs help, absolutely,” Whitebird said. Although the eight bikes were shipped overnight, the cross-country races started at 8:30 a.m. Friday, so the UVM team had to source a few spare bikes from other teams — Fort Lewis College and University of Montana at Bozeman. Riding his own bike that he brought on the plane, Lando ended up second in the club division. The rest of the UVM riders were just happy to be toeing the line after a crazy 24 hours. “Everyone had fun; everyone party-biked it,” said Lando. “There’s some character-building when people showing up on the start with scorched jerseys that smell like smoke.” Racing continues Saturday with the short track and dual slalom races and Sunday with the downhill and team relay. UVM’s riders will be aboard new bikes, and back in Wisconsin at Trek HQ, the Catamounts will probably have a few new fans following the action from afar. “We’re really excited that we could help these group of kids,” said Whitebird. “With a team effort, everything was able to come together.”
  11. David Millar’s attempt to take on Gianni Bugno for the presidency of the CPA rider’s association may have ended in defeat, but Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) believes the furor over the voting process may have the collateral effect of leading to greater engagement between professional riders and their representative union. Bugno was elected president for a third consecutive term during the UCI Road World Championships in Innsbruck amid vocal calls from the likes of Team Sky's Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome for a reform of the current voting system in which some rider unions – those of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and North America – vote en bloc, while individual riders from other nations can only vote in person on the day of the election. The Belgian and Dutch riders’ associations withdrew from the CPA earlier this year. In the aftermath of the vote, Gilbert’s name was quietly mentioned as a possible future president of the CPA, whose next elections are scheduled for 2021 or if Bugno offers to step down. Speaking to Cyclingnews at the Tour of Guangxi in China, Gilbert neither confirmed nor denied his interest in running for the role of CPA president, but he stressed the importance of professional riders forming a strong and united representative body. Gilbert has often defended rider interests, this week taking to social media. “I heard that also, that some people would like me to do this,” Gilbert told Cyclingnews. ADVERTISEMENT “It’s almost 10 years that I’ve been helping out, being the link between the riders and the CPA. And I was also back then on the [UCI] Athletes Commission. I did a lot. And the only thing you can say is that only now some riders are waking up and realising that we have a voice. “It’s just too bad that they realised it so late, because if we get united we can be a powerful part of cycling. If the riders are united, we can make things change. It’s the only way.” Although Millar lost to Bugno by 379 votes to 96, Gilbert believes that the Briton’s candidacy has done the state of the CPA some service. “I think we can be thankful to Millar because he made a move and woke up the CPA and now it is more active since then,” Gilbert said. “It’s a good thing.” Back racing at the Tour of Guangxi Gilbert is currently in China at the Tour of Guangxi, his final race of a 2018 season that risked ending prematurely when he sustained a fractured kneecap after crashing on the descent of Col de Portet d’Aspet at the Tour de France. Remarkably, the 36-year-old returned to action in late September and claimed his first win of the season that same day, soloing to victory at the GP d’Isbergues.

  12. Team Sky keeps loading up on talented youth while more riders are on the move in the WorldTour. Just days after announcing Jhonatan Narvaez, Sky confirmed the arrival of Filippo Ganna from UAE-Emirates. Edward Theuns heads back to Trek-Segafredo and Eduardo Prades punches his ticket to the WorldTour with Movistar. The highly versatile Ganna, 22, is comfortable on the track, on the time trial bike, and in the classics. “Filippo is a rider who has won under-23 Paris-Roubaix plus world and European titles on the track, so you can see he is a great all-round talent,” said Sky coach Dario Cioni. “He’s still developing on the road and this team is a great place for him to do that alongside the young talent we have at Team Sky.” Ganna’s arrival punctuates Sky’s strong Italian links — with backers Sky Italia, Castelli, Pinarello, Kask, Elite, and Fizik — as well as several Italian riders and staffers. With the arrival of Ganna, Sky also continues on its youth trend. Last year, it signed three promising riders with Egan Bernal, Tao Geoghegan Hart, and Pavel Sikilov. Narvaez, Ganna, Eddie Dunbar, and Ivan Sosa bolster Sky’s young talent that could emerge in the coming years. Sky still has a few names unconfirmed for 2019, but it appears the team is largely holding steady going into next season. It’s made a strong push to sign a mix of youth and experience the past two seasons, with eight new signings coming into 2018. Departures for 2019 include Sergio Henao (UAE-Emirates), Beñat Intxausti (Euskadi-Murias), and Lukasz Wisniowski (CCC Team). Caja Rural’s Prades’s big win at the recent Tour of Turkey helped him pen a deal with Movistar. Other new arrivals with Spain’s lone WorldTour team include Jurgen Roelandts, Carlos Verona, and Lluis Mas. And just days after announcing his departure from Sunweb with a year remaining on his contract, Theuns returns to Trek-Segafredo. “He will be one of the pillars of the classics group,” said general manager Luca Guercilena. “He’s given us wins in the past and we are certain he will do it again.” Read the full article at Sky continues youth push; Prades, Theuns on the move on VeloNews.com.

  14. Gianni Moscon's run of form since returning from suspension made him a resounding favourite for the Tour of Guangxi and the Team Sky rider lived up to his billing, soloing to victory on the uphill finish at Nongla on stage 4. Moscon was ejected from the Tour de France after television footage showed him aiming a punch at Elie Gesbert (Fortuneo-Oscaro) in the opening kilometres of stage 15. The Italian rider was later suspended for five weeks by the UCI but he returned in empathic fashion when he won the Coppa Agostoni and Giro della Toscana last month, before going on to place fifth at the World Championships in Innsbruck. "Winning is always beautiful. It’s a nice way to finish the season, I didn’t come to China for nothing," Moscon said after also pulling on the red jersey of race leader and setting up overall victory in the final WorldTour races of the season. ADVERTISEMENT Team Sky were among the most active teams in controlling the peloton on the fast approach to the short final climb, as low cloud swept in over the karst outcrops that dot the hinterland of Mashan County. The rapid pace continued on the lower slopes of the ascent but Moscon had the strength to punch his way clear and distance his rivals on the final steep ramps of the ascent. He finished five seconds clear of Felix Großschartner (Bora-Hansgrohe) and eight ahead of Sergei Chernetckii (Astana). "We were full gas when I saw that the other riders were very tired, I said, ‘Now is the moment,’" Moscon explained. "I didn’t think a lot about this, it was just a feeling. And I attacked. Straightaway I took some gap and I pushed until the end." A year ago, Tim Wellens’ victory at Nongla was a down payment on final overall victory, and with two relatively straightforward stages to come, Moscon looks set to finish his season with the first WorldTour stage race win of his career. He carries a lead of nine seconds over Großschartner into the final two days. Suspension and reaction You can read more at Cyclingnews.com View the full article
  15. NONGLA, China (AFP) — Italy’s Gianni Moscon won the grueling fourth stage of China’s Tour of Guangxi on Friday, taking the overall lead with two days of racing left. Moscon finished ahead of Felix Grossschartner (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Sergei Chernetski (Astana) at the end of the 152-kilometer route from Nanning to Nongla, which calumniated with a category 1 climb. In the overall standings, Moscon holds a 9-second lead over Grossschartner and a 14-second edge over Chernetski. “The most important thing was winning today,” Moscon said. “The stage tomorrow is long and pretty hard with some climbs. I expect a good battle tomorrow, but I have a strong team with me. Also, my condition is good.” Stage 5 of the race, which serves as the final event on the 2018 UCI WorldTour, is a lumpy, 212km route with four categorized climbs.
