    Viviani continues his streak winning the Cadel Evans race, while Richeze 'wins' the San Juan criterium.
    Cav's seasonal comeback but he'll surely struggle against Gaviria, Al Hodge and Sagan.

    I would agree re cav, im not saying he wont win any sprints anymore but it wont be easy for him ,as said last year there was something of a changing of the guard last season.

    QS looking good again,perfect timing and teamwork for Viviani thought he was going to get pipped at the line by Ewan.

    Gaviria is still the man to beat in a straight shoot out sprint. Cav in 8th so not too far off the pace.

    It's a scharfes S, not a b, dummkopfs.

    CX worlds this weekend.

    Ben Tulett defended his junior title. Good effort after a difficult year.

    Tom Pidcock just won the U23 race. Made it look pretty easy. Turner in 6th - may be a bit disappointed with that given his recent form.

    Damn. Sanne Cant beat the Dutch Armada to retain her CX World title. Super smart clean riding, although Lucinda Brand must be wondering how she lost that one.

    I think Brand knows that she lost because she kept falling off.

    MvdP duly won the men’s CX worlds. Wout van Aert have it a go but the rest of the field had clearly decided that it was a race for second place.
