PezCycling News - What's Cool In Road Cycling : EUROTRASH News Round Up Thursday!

Fabio Aru announces he will ride the 2018 Giro d'Italia - Top Story. Race report and video from the Boxing day cyclocross in Heusden-Zolder. A very mixed bag of other cycling news: New sponsor, bike and contract for Mathieu van der Poel, Katusha-Alpecin to use Wahoo, 2018 Tour Down Under, sponsor the Ruta del Sol, Cyclists’ Alliance launch, Quick-Step Floors Bike Experience Project, Marco Canola awarded, off-bike clothing for BEAT, UAE Team Emirates new cases and another vlog by Willie Smit. The final EUROTRASH for 2017.


TOP STORY: Aru to Ride 2018 Giro d'Italia
UAE Team Emirates signing, Fabio Aru, told Italian sports-paper Gazzetta dello Sport that he would be riding next years Giro and not the Tour de France as was first thought.

He explained that "from January 20, I will spend a couple of weeks on Teide (Tenerife). It's the first time I will have been there at this time of year. After that, I will ride Tirreno-Adriatico and probably Liège before the Giro."

Aru has been training hard over the Christmas period with a ride over Sestriere in preparation for the Giro stage 19. The Sardinian commented: "On Christmas Eve I did the 'Giro del Sestriere': six hours of riding, 180km and 2,200 meters altitude. It was a bit of a gamble given the season, but it was beautiful."

One wonders if the possible exclusion of Chris Froome had anything to do with the change of mind for the 2015 Vuelta a España winner? The 2018 Giro d'Italia is shaping up to having the best field of the Grand Tours, depending on 'FroomeGate' of course.

Will we see a repeat of Giro'15 stage 20 from Fabio?




Telenet UCI Cyclocross World Cup - Heusden-Zolder 2017
European champion, Mathieu van der Poel (Beobank-Corendon), won round 7 of the Telenet UCI Cyclocross World Cup in Heusden-Zolde, Belgium on Boxing Day Tuesday, showing that he had recovered from his illness the weekend before.

Van der Poel soloed to the finish in his accustomed fashion ahead of Laurens Sweeck (ERA-Circus) and World champion Wout Van Aert (Crelan-Charles) in third place. Van der Poel had not raced on Saturday in Sint-Niklaas saving himself for Tuesday.

Van der Poel set the tempo on the first lap with Van Aert keeping a close watch and Lars van der Haar and Daan Soete (both Telenet-Fidea) on his wheel. On the steep climb Van der Poel and Van Aert could ride as others had to run and soon a gap formed. On the second lap Van Aert was the stronger rider and at one point dropped Van der Poel, the Dutchman regained the World champion on the long road section of the finishing straight.

On lap four Van der Poel seemed to come round and rode away from Van Aert to make his solo ride for the win. By lap seven Sweeck had recovered from a bad start and caught the World champion with two laps remaining. On the final lap Van Aert left Sweeck in the dust, but made a gearing mistake allowed Sweeck to catch and drop the World champ and then hold him off to the line.

Behind the podium action; Van der Haar and Soete stuck together until Van der Haar rode off for fourth place. Corné van Kessel (Telenet-Fidea) was 6th ahead of Tim Merlier (Crelan-Charles), Toon Aerts (Telenet-Fidea) and Michael Vanthourenhout (Marlux-Napoleon Games).

Race winner, Mathieu van der Poel (Beobank-Corendon): "It was really nice to win again today after my bad race in Namur last week. I wasn’t faking illness. There was no other reason to skip Sint-Niklaas. It wasn’t possible. In hindsight it was the best call to make at that moment. I wasn’t feeling like I was the strongest rider in the race, especially after my knee fall at the set of stairs I thought he was gone. Wout was unlucky that the long road followed that section. I got into my rhythm. If, for example, the World Cup would’ve been on Saturday it would’ve been totally different because I wouldn’t have started. Things can turn around quickly. If I’m riding at my normal level then it should be in the pocket for the first time in my career."

2nd, Laurens Sweeck (ERA-Circus): "I got boxed in at the first corner, ahead of me gaps started to open up. I rode at my own pace and was quickly able to pass a group. I didn’t hesitate but it took a long time to bridge up with Wout. This is a fun way to race, especially when you end up as winner of such a duel. He rode away but made a small mistake. From there I went flat out until the finish. I was dying in the closing meters but luckily the gap was big enough when I hit the finishing straight. It’s been bad for two months and I’m glad it’s going better now. Last year I was runner-up over here and I’m glad to repeat that."

3rd, Wout Van Aert (Crelan-Charles): "It’s a weird sensation. Early on I felt good but then Mathieu had a small gap. Once I was alone I was unable to maintain a high pace."

Vuelta a Andalucia - Ruta Ciclista Del Sol Stage 2, last 4 km:




Introducing The Cyclist’ Alliance: A collective Voice for Women Cyclists
Today, The Cyclists’ Alliance is pleased to announce its official launch.

Why create the Alliance?
Formed and backed by some of women’s cycling’s biggest names, the new  international cycling union aims to be a resource and a cohesive voice for professional cyclists in order to promote and protect athlete safety and enhance professionalism within the sport.

“We will work as a partner with the UCI and the UCI-registered women's teams to help them form the first women's teams association in global cycling,” says founder Iris Slappendel.

“The Alliance is here to represent and protect riders; enabling fairness and equality, economic guidance, and dispute resolution.”

Rider surveys
The Alliance was formed after two rider surveys showed a tremendous need for riders to have a representative to voice their concerns and protect their collective interests when it comes to contracts, wages, disputes and rider safety.

“We sent out the surveys in February and April to get a sense of the biggest concerns and issues riders face, and if there was any interest or demand for a riders’ union,” explains Slappendel.

“The response rate was incredible. Riders from every UCI-registered team participated, and we garnered well over 200 unique responses. The overwhelming message from the women’s peloton was clear: change needs to happen for the sport to grow, and the time is now.”

The data was presented to UCI Road and Women’s WorldTour commissions in April, and showed a dire need for better contract negotiations and better pay.

46.9% of riders reportedly earn 5000 Euro or less per year, 17.5% of whom don’t get paid at all. And a revealing 90% of riders said they signed a contract with a UCI-registered team without any legal assistance.

“This needs to change. An association of women’s professional cyclists will be an important catalyst to push the women’s teams, the UCI, and the race organizers, to unify under the umbrella objectives of building a stronger sport, with a new narrative, broader appeal to fans, with greater economic and career opportunities,” said co-founder Gracie Elvin. 

“Without an independent association, the economics of the sport will remain small, in control of the hands of just a few key people, and limit the opportunities for all of us. So we ask our fellow cyclists to join us so we can leverage our strength to negotiate a better future with our teams, our partners in the UCI, new business supporters, and fans across the world.”

In addition to founders Iris Slappendel, Gracie Elvin and Carmen Small, an Advisory Board has been established of a wide range legal, financial and humanitarian professionals.

Short and long term objectives
The Alliance's first steps includes official recognition by the UCI by the time of the Innsbruck 2018 World Championships in order to enter into negotiations to create the first Women's Joint Agreement for a minimum wage and a standard contract that fall.

Along the way, the Alliance will be working to provide career advice, contract negation help, dispute resolutions and even insurance packages for riders who are currently under-insured in the peloton today.

“I truly believe that women’s professional cycling is on the verge of becoming one of the fastest growing and most commercially lucrative professional women’s sports,” says co-founder Carmen Small.

“Men’s professional cycling developed slowly over nearly 100 years of traditions which, over time, have been reinforced by political rivalries and economic decisions which have limited the sport's opportunities. Women’s professional cycling can, and must be, a sport which forges a new path that does not follow the template of the men’s sport. The women’s sport can accomplish this by uniting the interests of its labor force – namely, the women athletes who are the lifeblood of every competition — and the ambassadors of the sport who connect it to the greater public.”
