GENT-WEVELGEM’21: Wonderful Wout!

After a tough, wind-swept 250 kilometres, Wout van Aert won the 2021 Gent-Wevelgem. The leader of the Jumbo-Visma team started the day as top favourite and did not disappoint. He won the sprint from a leading group of seven riders who had been off the front for most of the day. Italians took the next three places: Giacomo Nizzolo, Matteo Trentin and Sonny Colbrelli. Michael Matthews was fifth.

Milano-Sanremo Breakdown: Position on the Poggio Once Again Decided the Race

Milano-Sanremo, a visual tour of the stunning Liguria coast and hands-down the most beautiful Monument, ran on Saturday with Jasper Stuyven of Trek-Segafredo thwarting the pre-race favorites and taking a thrilling upset victory. As expected, the nearly seven-hour race came down to the final thirty minutes, with positioning leading into and on the Poggio playing a major part in the final selection.

MILANO-SANREMO’21: Stunning Stuyven!

Race Report: Milano-Sanremo is dynamite with a very long fuse, but when it explodes, stand back for action. As is usual, the Poggio is where the race blew up to give us a group of worthy front runners for the swoop into Sanremo. But it was Trek-Segafredo's Jasper Stuyven who took everyone by surprise for the big win.
