Tuesday Night Worlds | This Fayetteville group ride has existed for 20 years and is cycling tradition in Fayetteville. Leaving @ 5:30 from The Bike Route or @ 6 from the parking lot adjacent to the Life Source building. Spirited pace with two regroups. This is a “try and drop you” race practice kind of ride. ROUTE: 71-Greenland-Found Loop-West Fork-71. Click here for STRAVA link.
555 TNT Road Ride | This Bentonville group ride meets @ 5:55 from the Bentonville Square. 35-45 mile ride, spirited pace with several regroups. This is a “try and drop you” race practice kind of ride. No whining! ROUTE: TBD.
9 riders went clear at around 50km to go and then Lizzie Diegnan (Trek) attacked the elite group of riders with 30km remaining using the Côte de La Redoute as her launching pad. An impressive solo victory given the world class names in that group.
What a crazy finish. An 4 man group formed when Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step) went clear on the Côte de la Roche-aux-Faucons. Only Michal Kwiatkowski (Ineos), Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) & Tadejn Pogacar (UAE) could go with him. They started working together with just a small gap. Other riders tried to bridge across only Matej Mohoric (Bahrain) managed to in the closing meters. It would be a 5 man sprint. Mohoric going first then Alaphilippe swerving wildly to the left scrubbing Hirschi’s sprint. Alaphilippe starts to celebrate but fails to see Roglic on his right side just pipping him with a bike throw. Notable: Alaphilippe did get relegated for his wild bmaneuvers.
Stage 3 Giro d’Italia
Well it blew up on day 3 for GC. Wind, rain & Mt. Etna. It was a complicated race with big winners and big losers.
