    African cycling under threat

    MTN-Qhubeka's recent success at the Tour de France has catapulted Africa cycling into the limelight. The 'David and Goliath' exploits of African riders have showcased the continent's potential as a source of top-level athletes. In addition, their attacking style has thrilled fans and won them respect within and outside the European peloton. This is perhaps best exemplified by Eritrean rider Daniel Teklehaimanot, the outright winner of the 'Mountains Classification' at the Critérium du Dauphiné and holder of the 'mountains jersey' for the first week of the Tour de France. African cycling's success is unquestionably underpinned by the w ...

    The first ever climb of La Pierre-Saint-Martin in the Tour de France 2015 in video!

    The first ever climb of La Pierre-Saint-Martin in the Tour de France 2015 in video!After today's rest day in Pau, the Tour de France 2015 will go on tomorrow, with the first mountain stage. It will take place in the Pyrenees, between Tarbes and La Pierre-Saint-Martin. For La Pierre-Saint-Martin, it'll be the very first time it receives the Tour de France and it's thus not surprising that this finish was being asked for for years now.

    The stage will have three 4th category climbs which precede the final climb (see the race route in detail) but it's the mountain top finish which will have a very big influence on the general classification and it might even decide the Tour tomorrow. ...
