Tough Salt Lake City Circuit To Test Radioshack

Last year, Radioshack’s Levi Leipheimer was also in yellow going into the final weekend of the Larry H Miller Tour of Utah. With no teammates, he was able to successfully defend to win the overall but it’s a whole new ballgame in 2011.

Make That Four For UHC At NVGP

Another stage, another win for UnitedHealthcare at Nature Valley Grand Prix. But tonight at the Uptown Minneapolis Criterium, they had to work very hard to keep it under control.

Staying Upright in Tulsa

Last night’s men pro/1 Blue Dome Criterium was simply a crashfest. The riders went down on the second turn on the first lap and didn’t stop until the finale. It might be easier to say who didn’t go down than who did in the 135-rider field in the first race of the St Francis Tulsa…

Climbers Test Themselves On Sierra Road

At the start of stage 3, all eyes were looking up the road, literally, with not only the first mountain-top finish of the race but the first KOM points attributed due to the canceled and shortened earlier stages. The climbers and GC contenders would now come out to the front of the race and at the end of 81-mile (131-km) stage some would be disappointed. With Canadian Champion Will Routley (Spidertech p/w C10), Tyler Wren (Jamis/Sutter Home) and Chris Baldwin (BISSELL).

Driscoll’s Move Nabs Most Courageous Jersey

With a shortened flat stage, the formula was somewhat formulaic today, an early break reeled in before the finishing circuits followed by the final bunch sprint. So why do it? Why put your nose in the wind? The possibility, though very slim, that the move might make it to the line and especially in Monday’s…

Borrajo Wins Close Sprint At Joe Martin
