The cycling world mourns Michele Scarponi's death. Alejandro Valverde and Vincenzo Nibali dedicate recent wins to the Italian.
While journalist Andrew Hood only knew Michele Scarponi professionally, his fondest memory of the fallen cyclist will always be his smile.
The spring classics end Sunday with a flourish over the Belgians Ardennes. The cobble-bashers are all licking their wounds and resting
Andrew Hood breaks down how Alejandro Valverde was able to win his fifth La Flèche Wallonne title.
The Belgian has enjoyed a solid spring season thus far, and he has the potential to eventually win all five of cycling's monuments.
The field for Wednesday's midweek classic is packed with riders who can climb the Mur de Huy to victory.
The Belgian won the Tour of Flanders last month, and on Sunday he rode to victory in the Amstel Gold Race.
In cycling's modern era, the Ardennes classics are won with a combination of supreme endurance, climbing talent, and above all, patience.
Andrew Hood argues that not giving riders who finish outside the time limit an official result at Roubaix is the wrong approach.
Peter Sagan finished the cobbled classics without a victory, caused by some bad luck along the way.
