Over 6,000 people attended the Tuesday service to lay to rest Michele Scarponi in his home town of Filottrano in the Marche region of Italy, including many top cyclists from the past and present who were there to pay their last respects. We say goodbye with a photographic tribute to a very special man.
Liège-Bastogne-Liège Photo Special: The Spring Classics season has rolled up in Liège with an exciting finalé, but with a fairly predictable out come - Alejandro Valverde. Cor Vos has all the best pics from Sunday, and so here is the PEZ Liège Photo Special to close the door on the 2017 Classics.
Amstel Gold Race Photo Special: Philippe Gilbert has repaid his Quick-Step Floors team with a great spring campaign, topped off with Sunday's Amstel Gold Race victory. As always Cor Vos had his top team of photographers at the Amstel roadside for the best pics of the day.
Paris-Roubaix Photo Special: The one race that throws up more iconic images than all the others has to be Paris-Roubaix. Wet or dry the 'Hell of the North' always makes a good picture and Cor Vos had his full crew on the cobbles last Sunday for the best views of the Queen of the Classics.
Tour of Flanders Photo Special: Sunday's Ronde van Vlaanderen was the best race of the season - Classic of Classics. As always, Cor Vos was there with his band of photographers and now that the dust has settled we have picked our 'Top Pics' from De Vlaanderens Mooiste.
Gent-Wevelgem Photo Special: The 2017 Gent-Wevelgem WorldTour Classic came down to an exciting finalé with a cat and mouse chase between the usual protagonists - Greg Van Avermaet and Peter Sagan. Cor Vos had his band of photographers on the Flemish roadside for the best shots.
Strade Bianche Photo Special: The Strade Bianche is not the Italian Paris-Roubaix, the race is not a copy of the Northern Classic, it has its own class and charm that that Roubaix can only dream of. Cor Vos had his photographers at the Tuscan roadside for the best shots of the day.
TDU Photo Special: The Santos Tour Down Under, 2017's first WorldTour event of the year was won by BMC-TAG Heuer's Richie Porte, it wasn't a big surprise as the man from Launceston was race favorite before the start. Six stages, but only two winners; Porte took two stage wins and the little Orica-Scott rocket, Caleb Ewan won four. Yes, it was repetitive, but boring it was not.
