SHAW James And, on top of that, just yesterday we witnessed Anna van der Breggen triumph at the women’s elite race with an attack on the same climb and on the same lap. With the likes of Geraint Thomas and the Yates brothers choosing not to ride, Great Britain brought an inexperienced team to Imola. Their last victory came in 1997 courtesy of Laurent Brochard and since then cycling’s other traditional European powerhouses Italy, Spain and Belgium have won it four, five and two times respectively. British Cycling performance director Stephen Park said on the team selection: “We have consistently seen some fantastic results from British riders at the major road races over recent months, and I’m confident that success will translate across to the UCI Road World Championships. Geraint Thomas at the 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico (Photo : Yuzuru SUNADA). But his lack of a sprint finish cost him a medal, and he instead had to settle for sixth-place. Profiting from great work by the vastly experienced Luke Rowe, Pidcock impressed today, managing to just about survive the increase in pace on the penultimate climbs to remain in the peloton at the bell. They did a lot of the pace-setting in the peloton over the last two laps, and Tiesj Benoot, Tim Wellens and Greg van Avermaet all helped control the many attacks that were attempted. That meant two things. Firstly, that everyone would make sure to try to cover any attack he made, and secondly that nobody would want to work with him in the knowledge that he’d outsprint them at the finish. The 2020 Worlds, initially planned for Switzerland, have been moved to the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, taking place around the famous Imola … Marc Hirschi (Switzerland), Michał Kiwatkowski (Poland), Jakob Fuglsang (Denmark) and Primož Roglič (Slovenia) all formed a chasing group behind Alaphilippe, after the decisive selections were made on the ninth and final ascent of the steep Cima Gallisterna. His eventual finish of 42nd made for a successful debut and Team Ineos, who only last week announced that they had signed Pidcock, will be delighted with how their new recruit looks.

And indeed, Roglič was able to get into the chase group behind Alaphilippe. There was some suggestion that one, if not both, Yates brothers would be riding. >> Subscribe to Cycling Weekly this Autumn and save 35%.

Park continued: “The way the race calendar is this year means we are missing some of our Grand Tour specialists in the road race as they prepare for the forthcoming Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España, but regardless of that I believe we have a strong men’s team for both the road race and the time trial events and I know we will make the fans proud.”, PIDCOCK Tom

The UCI were then forced to find a new venue in a very small amount of time and Imola was the new venue chosen. He might have hoped for more, but that’s still a fine achievement.

Revised 2020 calendar so far July 3-5: Austrian GP Road World Championships Imola 2020 - Men Elite Road Race - Imola - Julian Alaphilippe (FRA - Deceuninck - Quick Step) Share. At the Tour de France earlier this month the 26-year-old had displayed the kind of all-round talent that men’s cycling has not seen for decades, combining one of the peloton’s quickest bunch sprints with an ability to climb alongside yellow jersey candidates. Road World Championships Imola 2020 – Men Elite Road Race – Imola – Julian Alaphilippe (FRA – Deceuninck – Quick Step) Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar vainly launched an attack on the penultimate climb at Cima Gallisterna, 42km from the finish line. “As we always do, we’ve seen Luke Rowe play a solid role as team captain during the Tour de France this year, and it’s been brilliant to see Hugh Carthy up there for his team on the mountain stages. There can hardly have been a more popular and charismatic winner of the Worlds than Alaphilippe. It was another triumph for the 22-year-old, who enjoyed a stunning breakthrough Tour de France this month, where he won a stage and entertained us all with his attacking racing.

His face was a picture of pain all the way to the finish, his mouth wide-open as he gasped for air, and his head compulsively swivelling as he checked and double-checked to make sure the chasers weren’t nearing. France’s Julian Alaphilippe won the men’s world road race title at Imola on Sunday. His Belgian team did the best they could to work around these two problems and were impressively united behind their leader. But both Adam and Simon are not riding with Adam resting after the Tour de France and Simon preparing for another go at the Giro d’Italia off the back of his Tirreno-Adriatico win. Matt Holmes was replaced by Ethan Haytor after Holmes came down with a “non-Covid related illness.”. The 21-year-old has been hyped for a number of years now, due to his success in cyclo-cross, as well as on the road by winning races like Paris-Roubaix at both junior and under-23 level, and this year he enjoyed one of his biggest breakthroughs yet with a stunningly dominant performance to win the u23 baby Giro. This year was no exception for the most part, until Tour de France winner Tadej Pogačar launched an attack on the penultimate lap, with over 40km still to ride until the finish. They weren’t, and an emotional Alaphilippe had time to celebrate and let the feeling of victory sink in as he crossed the line. The time trial course is relatively flat and is the same 31.7km route for both men and women. In the individual time trial it will be Geraint Thomas and Alex Dowsett who will ride, with both showing good form on and off the TT bike at Tirreno-Adriatico and the Euros. The Imola 2020 Road World Championships are here despite the uncertainty – here’s how you can live stream all the racing. Paradoxically, being too good can sometimes be more of a hindrance than an advantage in cycling. Road World Championships Imola 2020 - Women Elite Road Race - Imola - Elisa Longo Borghini (ITA) - Annemiek Van Vleuten (NED) Prev 1 of 2 Next – ‘Strange season’ – The peloton left the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola but was quickly cut to 100 riders … Van Avermaet set a searing tempo for its first half, but when Switzerland’s Marc Hirschi attacked, Van Aert was left to his own devices. The Worlds is usually a slow-burner, with most laps functioning as a gradual whittling-down, attritional process rather than a springboard for exciting, attacking racing. Our most experienced ‘Worlds Watcher’, Ed Hood, gives us his thoughts on the Imola World Championships. Jul 24, 2020, 2:00 PM Imola’s return to the Formula 1 calendar in October will be as a two-day race weekend, although the exact timetable has yet to be finalised. The 2020 UCI Road World Championships will take place in Imola and the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy) on a very challenging course Sep 2, 2020, 12:59 PM The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is pleased to announce that it has awarded the organisation of the 2020 UCI Road World Championships to Imola. With most riders, we’d have written off such an early solo attack as hopeless, but Pogacar had only last week achieved something deemed similarly unlikely in the final time trial of the Tour de France. He tailed away in the final lap, but that’s only to be expected of a rider not used to the extra distance of elite road races like the Worlds. Switzerland was originally down to host the Worlds but had to cancel due to Swiss regulations regarding coronavirus.

Van Aert did indeed win the sprint for second, and therefore adds another silver medal to add to the one won in the time trial. He won the race in his typical swashbuckling style, launching one of his trademark punchy attacks on the final climb, with a turn of speed that no-one could match, and soloing the rest of the 12km to the finish. Kwiatkowski and Hirschi were the best sprinters on paper, though you can never tell how someone’s sprint will hold up after over 250km of racing. >>> Here is the Great Britain women’s team for World Championships 2020 in Imola. It ought to be a fun 12 months watching him in the rainbow jersey. FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN PORTUGUESE GRAND PRIX 2020. Instead, the race was tackled as a chance for the nation’s hottest young prospect, Tom Pidcock, to gain some valuable experience and show what he could do at senior level. Like neighbouring Mugello – another F1 calendar addition for 2020 – Imola is nestled in a fantastic part of the world, with the Tuscan hills to the south, the Adriatic beaches to the east and the gastronomic delights of cities like Bologna, Parma and Modena to the west – as well as the F1 mecca that is Ferrari’s HQ in nearby Maranello. Pidcock and Rowe will be joined by James Shaw, James Knox, Hugh Carthy, and Ethan Haytor.
