Tour de France 1. Etappe

05. Juli 2014 - vor 5 Jahren und 17 Tagen

05. Juli, 1. Etappe: Leeds - Harrogate  Von SRM gesponsorte Teams räumten heute bei der Tour de France sämtliche  Trikots ab: Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) holte den Etappensieg und damit das Gelbe und Grüne Trikot, Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) erhielt für seinen Solo-Ausriss das Gepunktete Trikot, und Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) holte sich das Weisse Trikot des besten Nachwuchsfahrers. Die erste Etappe von Leeds nach Harrogate war alles andere als flach und schlängelte sich auf engen Strassen durch die ländliche Gegend, die mit tausenden Zuschauern gefüllt war. Der Deutsche Jens Voigt (Trek), der bei der Tour schon zum Inventar gehört, startete bereits auf dem ersten Kilometer einen Ausreissversuch mit zwei jüngeren Fahrern. Alle drei wurden erwartungsgemäss auf dem hügeligen Terrain vom Hauptfeld eingeholt. Zuvor aber hängte "Jensie" seine beiden Begleiter ab, um sich solo an den beiden letzten Anstiegen die Führung in der Bergwertung zu sichern. Trek Factory Racing

Giro d'Italia Stage 15

01. Juni 2014 - vor 5 Jahren, 1 Monat und 22 Tagen

Giro d'Italia's Stage 15 was a mountaintop finish following 225km from Valdengo to Montecampione. Astana's young Sardinian pro, Fabio Aru, came to the base of the day’s final and only climb – nearly 20km up to Montecampione – in the group of leaders – and as other teams began to attack, waited patiently, pedaling coolly and efficiently as the others spent their energy. -Astana Pro Team "Fabio Aru could hardly have picked a better moment to clinch the first victory of his professional career. The 23-year-old Astana rider gave a majestic performance on the iconic climb up to Plan de Montecampione, producing a series of accelerations that left him left him 21 seconds clear." cyclingnews

Giro d'Italia Stage 12

23. Mai 2014 - vor 5 Jahren und 2 Monaten

The Giro d'Italia's first Individual Time Trial was Stage 12, a 41.9km course from Barbaresco to Barolo through the famous winemaking region in northern Italy. The route featured challenges for every type of rider; climbing, flat sections, straight aways, and tight corners and combined with the stormy wet weather conditions it was a true test of power and skills. Going into the stage, Cannondale Team Captain, Ivan Basso, was ranked 10th overall in the GC and a top finishing time could likely move him up significantly.

Tour of California Stage 5

17. Mai 2014 - vor 5 Jahren, 2 Monaten und 5 Tagen

Taylor Phinney of the BMC Racing Team broke away 25 kilometers from the finish Thursday at the Amgen Tour of California and held off the charging pack on the run-in to the oceanside finish in Santa Barbara to earn his third victory of the season. "This was a great ride by Taylor," remarked Bobby Julich. "You could see from the salt stains on his jersey that it was another taxing day on the riders and he saw his opportunity to go for the stage and took it.  Obvioulsy, Cannondale wasn't messing around up San Marcos Pass in their attempt to drop the sprinters, but he absorbed that effort very well.  The descent favoured a bigger guy like Taylor, but he really had to fight during the run in to Santa Barbara.  Each one of those rollers could have been the end of his breakaway attempt, but he powered over them and kept his speed and cadence very high.  Averaging over 400w, 105 rpm and over 50kph at the end of a stage like that was world class.  Very few riders could have pulled that off, but Taylor seems to be making it his signature move in road races.  I liked the way that once he committed to the effort, he never looked back until he was preparing his victory salute.... which was, in my opinion, also world class!"
