There's one weekend every year in which the national road cycling championships take place. The June weekend chosen for 2021 was definitely full of rewards for both Astana-Premier Tech and Wilier Triestina.
Dmitriy Fofonov, Astana’s team performance manager, presents the prospects for the new competitive season. The team’s trumps in 2021 will be youth and technology.
Thirteen kilometres of extremely demanding uphill pedalling just over 40 km from the sea. The tantalising possibilities of the Vuelta a España.
The 2021 edition of the Tour de France will begin in Brittany, from Finistère (the “end of the earth”) the most westerly point of the Breton peninsula, wedged in the Atlantic Ocean. It is where the true untamed heart of France beats.
The beauty of off-road cycling in a spectacular setting. An 86 km loop with 4500 metres of elevation gain in the heart of the Dolomites, between the Val Gardena, Val Pusteria and Val di Fassa valleys.
The San Bernardino pass along with the Splügen Pass and Alpe Motta will close the curtain on the great climbs of the 2021 edition of the Giro d’Italia. The last long cavalcade across the Swiss border and into Valchiavenna should render the final verdict in the overall rankings, barring a spectacular turnaround during the last time trial in Milan.
