Clásica San Sebastián: The PEZ Preview

Tour de France, Olympic Games... Next up - The Clásica San Sebastián this Saturday. The Spanish, okay the Basque Donostiako Klasikoa, race leads us nicely into next month's final Grand Tour, la Vualta a España. But it is no prologue and is a hard fought WorldTour Classic with a strong history. Ed Hood gives us his PEZ preview.

Catching Up with CCC’s Greg Van Avermaet

Rider Interview: Last, but certainly not least, in our series of interviews with riders from the CCC team is the top man himself; Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet. Greg looks back at 2019 and looks forward to 2020, the Classics and the Olympics... We also talk babies!

Clásica San Sebastián’19: Classic Remco Evenepoel!

Race Report: The 19-year-old Remco Evenepoel was the convincing winner of the Clásica San Sebastián. The young Belgian from Deceuninck - Quick-Step dropped his break companion, Toms Skujins (Trek-Segafredo), and soloed into San Sebastián 38 seconds ahead of the chasers. CCC's Greg Van Avermaet was second, Marc Hirschi (Sunweb) third.

Clasica San Sebastian ’14: The PEZ Preview

Race Preview: Fresh back from the Tour de France; Ed Hood gives us his thoughts on this Saturday’s San Sebastian Classic. The winner could be a rider with fitness from the Tour or one building up for the Vuelta. Whichever, there is always a tough fight in the Basque Country.

EuroTrash Monday!

July 29, 2013 - The ’98 Tour keeps coming back to haunt us and it’s bitten a few riders on the ass this week. We also have two races from the Basque Country and two stages of the Tour de Pologne from Italy. A Woman’s Tour de France, no but maybe a Tour of Britain, sponsorship trouble and a bit of Vuelta promotion fills our EuroTrash Monday. Coffee time!

San Sebastián ’13: Galloping Gallopin!

Race Report: The Northern Spanish Classic always has an exciting finale with its crucifying climbs of the Jaizkibel and Arkale and today was no exception. Young Tony Gallopin chose the correct moment to take an opportunist lead from a very strong beak and took it to the line. The “new Guard” comes to the fore!
