Richie Porte with DOGMA F8, wrapped up his second Paris-Nice title in the space of three years by winning the final time trial up the Col d’Eze.
Wout Poels stormed to a classy solo victory on stage four at Tirreno-Adriatico and moved himself into the race lead.
Richie Porte and Geraint Thomas endured a roller coaster ride on the sixth stage of Paris-Nice but remain well positioned heading into the final day of action.
Ian Stannard pulled off a stunning victory to defend his Omloop Het Nieuwsblad title after seeing off three Etixx – Quick-Step riders. The Brit found himself in a select four-man lead group but headed into the final 40 kilometres as the odd man out, surrounded by rival team-mates. Undeterred, Stannard shut down a pair of late attacks on the run into Gent before out-sprinting Niki Terpstra to seal an epic victory. Able to conserve energy as Stijn Vandenbergh, Tom Boonen and Terpstra led the quartet, the 27 year old was finally forced into action as the attacks began. Boonen kicked first with 4.6km to go, only for Stannard to emphatically ride across the gap. Terpstra and Vandenbergh immediately responded but Stannard proved the stronger, heading under the flamme rouge with now just Terpstra for company, and winning a two-up sprint for a second year in succession. Team Sky worked hard all race to set up Stannard, with the squad grouped at the front to avoid the danger on a difficult parcours. Sir Bradley Wiggins and Bernhard Eisel pulled for long turns at the front, and when the attacks began both Stannard and Luke Rowe were there to mix it up in the front group. Rowe capped off a great day with ninth place, having pushed the pace on the Wolvenberg shortly before the decisive move went.
Geraint Thomas leapt to the top of the standings at the Volta ao Algarve by escaping to a stunning solo victory on stage two. Thomas latched onto Rein Taaramae’s wheel when the Astana rider attacked the final climb of the day, and then blew his rival away as he crested the summit and powered on for his first win of the season. The Welshman crossed the line with a 19-second cushion over Taaramae, with the Estonian’s team-mates Valerio Agnoli and Luis Leon Sanchez leading a reduced peloton home four seconds later.
To celebrate the extraordinary career of Team Sky’s Sir Bradley Wiggins Pinarello has created a special Dogma F8 frame, which will make its debut in the Time Trial at the Tour of Qatar. On the top tube is a gold image of Sir Bradley Wiggins alongside the Union Jack and the World Championship rainbow colours. The frame also lists Wiggo’s most remarkable victories in his career including the Tour de France and his World and Olympic titles on both the road and the track. As a tribute to the British cycling champion this unique collectors piece will be produced in limited edition by Pinarello to celebrate Sir Bradley Wiggins as the British, World and Olympic Time Trial champion. more info: firstname.lastname@example.org Cicli Pinarello Spa - Viale della Repubblica 12 31020 Villorba TV - Italia +39 0422420877
Elia Viviani claimed his first victory for Team Sky with an impressive sprint finish on stage two at the Dubai Tour. The Italian came off the wheels of rivals Mark Cavendish and Andrea Guardini before accelerating to secure a comfortable victory in the spectacular surroundings of the Palm Jumeirah.
Richie Porte with DOGMA F8, pulled out one of the best rides of his career to take victory on stage five of the Tour Down Under. Porte’s initial acceleration put all his rivals into difficulty, but with the ochre jersey of Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) clinging to his wheel, the Team Sky rider had to dig even deeper to offload the race leader.
