Busche, Schleck safely arrive with reduced bunch in Utah stage two

Only one climb in the 159.6-kilometer stage two in the Tour of Utah, but it was a steep 3.5 kilometers up North Ogden Divide that summited 30 kilometers from the finish, enough to whittle the peloton to 47 riders. Matthew Busche, Fränk Schleck and Trek Factory Racing stagiaire Leonardo Basso finished with the front peloton after the punishing gradient (9% average, 12% maximum) took its toll.

Nizzolo a frustrating second in Poland stage 3

Giacomo Nizzolo was situated perfectly as he launched his final kick in the 166-kilometer third stage at the Tour of Poland Tuesday. With a clear runway to the looming white line, he could smell victory. But suddenly, a handful of meters before the line, Matteo Pelucchi (IAM Cycling) appeared on his left with momentum – a few powerful pedal strokes, one bike throw, and a millisecond later the win was snatched from Nizzolo’s grasp.

Rainy, cool start in Utah

Stage one at the Tour of Utah was expected to end in a bunch sprint, but with two stiff climbs in the 212.4-kilometer opening stage – the longest of the weeklong race – coupled with rainy, cool weather nothing was going to be predictable. A late attack threw a curveball into the bunch sprint prognosis as three men joined the last two relics from the original seven-man breakaway.

Tour of Poland kicks off with Warsaw circuit race

The Tour of Poland began Sunday with 10 laps of a 12.2-kilometer circuit and as expected it all came down to a bunch sprint. Marcel Kittel (Giant Alpecin) grabbed a long-awaited victory, his first of 2105, and with it the first leader’s jersey of the race, while Trek Factory Racing walked away from the opening stage dissatisfied and wanting more after Giacomo Nizzolo finished in 12th.

Clásica San Sebastian, the Spanish Classic that always follows a week after the Tour de France, is a race that Bauke Mollema loves: second last year, fifth in 2012, and this year sixth after he again was part of a small select group that crested the final climb to fight out the final seven-kilometer run-in.

Danny van Poppel attacked at the bottom of the steep, cobbled climb that topped out just before the finish of the final stage in the Tour de Wallonie Wednesday, and soloed to his second victory of the five-day race. With only four riders, Trek Factory Racing used its resources perfectly to lead Danny van Poppel into the tricky s-turn at the bottom of the Mur de Thuin climb where he made his move early, opting not to wait for the sprint, and opened a gap that no one could close.
