  1. Thanks @Inrng. This is fantastic to have them all on one easy to find spot. BMC OPQS have done well, so well done them, but so have RSLT – maybe a team of champions but not a champion team?

  2. Tamouridis won both championships (ITT & Road) in Greece. I guess Porto San Elpidio and all the Giro climbs paid good dividends!

  3. Good to see Hoogerland finally in the news in a positive way. Hopefully he can keep his form for the Tour, where he will be an asset with his attacking style. Also good that Vacansoleil wins two titles with Hoogerland and Rujano, it might improve their chances of finding a new sponsor. They will be less happy that their former leader Stijn Devolder started getting results again as soon as they fired hi.

    It’s a shame that Saxo will not bring the combative Michael Mørkøv to the Tour, especially since I am not to sure about Contador. I don’t think it’s a smart move for them to put all their eggs in one basket.

      • Last year the race schedule was changed due to London Olympic Games, despite no UCI points are awarded. Usually it’s held same time frame like most of other countries.
        Hope Yukiya will in by this dominating victory, but I am worried as I remember TDF 2011 which started from Vandee…

  4. So not a single roadrace champ for Sky this year? (Tho they have at least one TT winner in EBH.)

    Bit of a surprise for such a powerful (and expensive) squad, no?

    • It’s always a difficult race. Look at other countries where Rabo/Blanco have often been done over in recent years, the team needs to ride as a team but often riders have private ambitions.

    • The Colombian national championship road race was held on the same day as Liege-Bastogne-Liege. This explains why Henao, Urán, Betancur, Quintana and the other Euro-based Colombians did not take part in it. In fact, it is very rare to see the Colombian national champion racing outside of Colombia, as the race usually features only domestic-based racers. They also can’t hold the race in mid-June because it conflicts with the Vuelta a Colombia

      The easy solution for this problem would be to hold the race in January or February. The weather is going to be pretty much the same anyway

  5. Interesting to see that Cavendish, Greipel and Sagan are all going to be wearing their national colours when fighting for green over the next month.

  6. I was wondering, since Cavendish is currently wearing the British colours for Tour de France, if he wins Road Race championship this year, which jersey would he wear? The rainbows jersey? I mean, in general, if a national road race champion wins the world road race championship in the same year, he should be wearing the rainbows jersey right?
