    For its participation in the 100th Tour de France Vacansoleil-DCM has entered a well-balanced team which should be able to battle on all terrains. With three fast men, three born attackers and three riders who are at ease in the mountains, manager Daan Luijkx and acting Sports Directors Hilaire Van Der Schueren, Jean-Paul van Poppel and Aart Vierhouten hope to be at the front of the race for the full three weeks. Vacansoleil-DCM presented their team this morning in the cycling municipality of Rucphen - Sint Willebrord, hometown of not less than four former yellow jersey wearers.

    Race Report: On a day that saw Astana and the major players’ content to let the break go, we ended with a new Maillot Jaune, a shake-up in the overall, a popular German win and a new Toast of France! Bring on Bastille Day!

    tdf14st6-greipel

    Race Report: With the pain of the cobbles still in the legs of the pelotón from yesterday, stage 6 of the Tour de France could have been a rest day. The wind and rain put any idea of an easy time out of the question as crashes again played their part in the excitement. In the end a different German won.

    tdf14st5-boom650

    Race Report: On the day most of the riders were scared of, it was the Italian Champion and current Yellow Jersey who took the race by the scruff of the neck and blew the parcours apart. Atrocious weather, a favorite abandoned, riders gapped but the strongest man was Lars Boom (Belkin) who showed all of the other Classics specialists how to ride the cobbles in the wet.

    tdf14st21-nibaliwine650

    Race Report: In a race that’s been all about attacking, and attacking again it came down to a sprint finish in Paris. It almost didn’t though as Team Sky attempted to recover from their misfortunes but nothing was going to deny the big German and arguably best sprinter around, Marcel Kittel. From start to finish, he’s shown he’s the man to watch in the dash for the line.

    tdf14st18-nibali650

    Race Report: On a day when Vincenzo Nibali could have sat back and watched the others fight it out for the podium places, the ‘Shark of Messina’ rode away from everyone with 10 kilometres of the Hautacam still to climb. Behind the French jumped Valverde to push him off the podium.

    tdf14st17-majka650

    Race Report: Today was designed to be raced hard … from the flag. We had escapes and counter attacks, an ever-changing picture. The one constant was the polka-dot vision Rafal Majka, always in the action and ultimately grabbing the glory for a second stage win at this 2014 Tour.

  • Tuesday July 22, 2014

    tdf14st16-rogers650

    Race Report: Michael Rogers forced his way into the winning group and took it to the line. If that wasn’t exciting enough, the action behind saw the battle between the French riders take another step up with Bardet losing out, not only Pinot but also Peraud. Another day of action in France.

    tdf14st15-sprint650

    Race Report: Hell, it's a cruel sport sometimes. Bike racing really knows how to break your heart. It was a pretty routine stage, pretty flat after the Alps and with a rest day to follow. Today was not really a day for much to happen. We had a long dual escape, but the longer it went on … well, you just started to hope that the escapees would hang on.

    tdf14st14-majka650

    Race Report: With three big climbs it was a surprise that a rider from the break would go all the way to the line for the win, but Rafal Majka did. It was no surprise that Vincenzo Nibali rode away from all the others for a fine second place and more time in the yellow jersey bank.

    tdf14st12-kristoff 650

    Race Report: Hot conditions in the Tour de France saw the roads melting and the riders doing much the same as ice bags were the order of the day. The main breaks were pulled in on the long slopes to the finish and a sprint was set up for the fast-men that were left for the battle. Good for Kristoff, bad for Sagan.

  • Wednesday July 16, 2014

    tdf14st11-gallopin 650

    Race Report: With perfect timing the young French colt Tony Gallopin jumped away from the favourites on a crazy descent into the finish to hold off the pack. Peter Sagan was the big loser, the pressure was on him and he missed his chance. Another great day for the French.

  • Saturday July 12, 2014

    tdf14st8-blel650

    Race Report: Another long attack highlighted the early goings of the Tour's first mountain stage today with the win finally going the way of the break thanks to a superb performance from Blel Kadri. The mountains mightn't have been long today but they sure provided some real fireworks amongst the GC contenders with some big changes in the top 20 by stage's end.

    tdf14st7-sprint650

    Race Report: The second longest stage of the Tour was looking like a typical transition day just until the day long break was caught 25km before the finish and all hell broke loose. The action started happening left right and center with two climbs, crashes, mechanicals, attacks, more crashes and a photo finish winner - what a final!

    tdf14st20-martin650

    Race Report: A long time trial full of action saw Tony Martin once again show his class with a superb win but it was the GC battle that had the excitement boiling today with 8 out of the top 10 GC places changing after the time trial was done and dusted. Stage 20 of the 2014 Tour de France was a great day for some and a nightmare for others...

    tdf14st1-kittel650

    Race Report: Massive crowds, perfect weather and some beautiful scenery - Yorkshire sure put on a great show for the opening stage of the 2014 Tour de France. The riders too put on a show with a classic Jens Voigt attack and a spectacular sprint which turned to tragedy for some but nothing but glory for Marcel Kittel who claimed the stage and with it the yellow jersey.

    tdf14st19-ramunas650

    Race Report: It looked like a re-run of the Nîmes finish as a Garmin rider struggled to hold off a charging peloton. This time, though, perhaps aided by a big crash 3km from home, the US-based team finished their man Ramúnas Navardauskas ahead of all of the fancied sprinters.

  • Friday July 18, 2014

    tdf14st13-nibali650

    Race report: Vincenzo Nibali seems to be taking a stance to win this Tour in a 'historic' manner. Strong on the cobbles and now stage wins in the Yorkshire Ardennes, the Vosges and the Alps. It was a display of controlled fury from the race leader as he nailed the day. Behind him the GC got a bit of a shake-up...
