2023 Vuelta España Stage 16 Preview

Liencres Playa > Bejes 120km The final week begins with a hilltop finish, but with the current GC position, will we see another day for the breakaway? The final climb isn’t the hardest in the world, there won’t be big gaps on GC, but will a team like UAE control the break and go for...


2023 GP Montréal Preview

Montréal > Montréal 225km One of the hardest races on the calendar. We have 4843m of climbing over 225km, I can’t wait for the worlds here in 3 years. Last year, it was Pogačar beating Van Aert and co in a small sprint, and UAE arrive with a team to try and retain the title....


2023 Vuelta España Stage 15 Preview

Pamplona > Lekunberri 158km It’s the day before the second rest day and the race heads to the Basque Country, but this stage isn’t what most would have had in mind considering what we usually get in this part of the world. No wall climbs, but it does look too hard for the sprinters, which...


2023 Vuelta España Stage 14 Preview

Sauveterre-de-Béarn > Larra-Belagua 156km Well, well, well, that was incredible. What Jumbo-Visma have done in the last few years is nothing short of remarkable, they deserve all the plaudits coming their way. They now sit 1-2-3 on GC, and it looks impossible to do anything about this, they are set to win all three grand...


2023 GP Québec Preview

Québec > Québec 204km One of my favourite races of the year, I promise it’s got nothing to do with it being a Friday night and I’ll be watching with a bottle of wine. 16 laps of the circuit in Québec, one that has enough about it for the attackers to put pressure on the...


2023 Vuelta España Stage 13 Preview

Formigal. Huesca la Magia > Col du Tourmalet 135km Without a shadow of doubt, this is the day where the red jersey will be won or lost. 135km and 4164m of climbing, it’s one of the hardest stages in the whole of 2023. With the GC finely balanced, and with three riders each from Jumbo-Visma...
