  • May | 2013 | Bar Italia
    Corsa Rosa but it was certainly one of the hardest In conditions that resembled a monsoon more than a bicycle race a break of five riders formed off the front on the undulating opening section of the stage Fabio Felline Androni Giocattoli Maxim Belkov Katusha Bert De Backer Argos Shimano Maurits Lammertink and Marco Marcato both Vacansoleil DCM braved the elements to build up a maximum lead of three minutes over the peloton But the horrific conditions were made all too apparent when four of the five escapees all hit the deck on an early descent after stage nine winner Belkov slid on the slippery tarmac to spark a domino effect of sprawling riders Only Belgian De Backer managed to avoid coming to grief and news of the incident soon filtered down to the peloton who eased their pursuit with around 100km left to ride Already Wiggins was struggling the 33 year old riding at the back and clearly suffering the lingering effects of the cold and chest infection he picked up in the opening 10 days of the race Two fourth category climbs had very little effect on the composition of both the leading group and the main pack but it was the gradual but long descent of the last climb 40km from the finish which hammered the nail in the coffin of Wiggins s Giro Numerous groups formed as the peloton split under the pressure of Omega Pharma Quick Step and the Italian veteran Scaponi winner of the 2011 edition of the race was stuck in no mans land at one point But where Scarponi succeeded on fighting back Wiggins failed Supported by six Sky team mates Wiggins managed to close the gap to around one minute before suffering from a second wave of weakness Soon Wiggins was off the back and isolated and it was not until team mate Christian Knees came back that he found his way back into the fold But at this point the chasing group was more than three minutes down on the main pack With OPQS setting a fast pace in pursuit of the five man break the gap grew to in excess of three minutes as Sky minus Uran and Henao tried to recapture their winning team time trial form and reduce the deficit But it was all in vain As Cavendish was celebrating his century of wins former Sky team mate Wiggins was still driving to the line his Giro aspirations left in complete tatters The race continues on Friday with the tough 254km stage 13 from Busseto to Cherasco a largely flat affair which concludes with a succession of hills including one third category test 35km from the finish Posted in News Tagged Giro D Italia Bar Italia Mark cavendish Leave a reply Our Blogger gets Blogged Posted on May 15 2013 by admin Reply We were recently visited by a group of travel operators from Japan brought over to London by the good people of Visit Britain from Tokyo We are pleased to say that all seemed to enjoyed thier visit to Bar Italia and Litttle Italy so much so that they asked our Blogger to write one for thier Blog The result is this http ameblo jp britain park entry 11529949904 html Which translates to this I first walked into the legendary Bar Italia in Frith Street or Froth Street as some call it about twenty five years ago I was a member of the legendary Ronnie Scotts jazz club back then and before taking one of the early shows featuring the likes of Sonny Rollins Sarah Vaughan or Ronnie Scott himself I would sit and enjoy a cappuccino on my way in Time shift to the area of Soho in 2013 and it now has countless coffee shops on its streets but there is still only one Bar Italia In my opinion the well known brand names of the high street serve up a large polystyrene cup of hot slop compared with this place and the niche independent coffee shops try just that little bit too hard to be in place to go Bar Italia doesn t try to be cool and trendy It just has the feeling of being right naturally Its walls are covered with photographs of football teams gangsters celebrities press cuttings old staff and family members The television shows Italian football league matches or races from the World of professional cycling The décor has grown purely organically not been put together by some well known interior designer No coffee worshippers we re talking authenticity here The Bar is still in the hands of the Polledri family who opened the Bar in 1949 with the grandchildren of the original owner now running the place The coffee served here is still the best I have personally tasted in the UK It is made from a secret blend supplied by a coffee specialist It s so secret in fact that even the family doesn t know what is in it Twenty five years after my initial visit I still aim to get a coffee in here at least a couple of times a week I base myself on the premises when in the West End of London so it has become my office You always know a place is special when you see a lot of the same faces frequenting the Bar day in day out They could be office workers paramedics famous film or music stars or window cleaners They are all treated the same by the Barista s Among those famous faces you can see on the premises on a daily basis includes the likes of Sir Paul Smith Martin Freeman Paul Weller Sir Bradley Wiggins Boy George John Hurt Rupert Everett and Suggs who like me seems to use the place as his office If you have been in London recently but not visited Bar Italia then I m afraid your vacation wasn t complete Next time you are in town I urge you to grab a seat outside order up a cappuccino and watch the World walk past you Tell them Baxter sent you Mark Baxter London Spring 2013 Posted in News Tagged Bar Italia Visit Britain Tokyo Leave a reply Brad loses time as Sky win Stage 10 Posted on May 15 2013 by admin Reply Giro d Italia Wiggins loses time as team mate Uran wins It was a bittersweet day for Team Sky in the Friulian mountains as Bradley Wiggins lost more time to his rivals after Colombian team mate Rigoberto Uran soloed to a stage 10 victory in the first summit finish of the Giro d Italia Uran attacked on the final climb of the day the Cat 1 Altopiano del Montasio to take a maiden Grand Tour victory ahead of Colombian compatriot Carlos Betancur Ag2R La Mondiale But what may have been a tactical ploy by Team Sky backfired when Wiggins was distanced by his rivals on the steep 20 ramps of the climb The 2012 Tour de France winner finished the stage in 10th place and drops to 2 05 behind Vincenzo Nibali Astana on GC Italian maglia rosa Nibali outsprinted BMC s Cadel Evans to take third place on the stage and some vital bonus seconds that extend his lead to 41 seconds over the Australian veteran Uran s victory saw the 26 year old Olympic road race silver medallist rise to third place on GC one second ahead of team mate Wiggins whose form continues to flounder I m really happy to have won today Uran told Eurosport It s a moment of great prestige for me to take such an important stage Everything went perfectly for me and the team Uran s words will fan the flames of speculation that Sky have changed their tactics in favour of the Colombian as designated team leader Wiggins continues to struggle to rediscover the all winning finesse of last season With the sun out and very little rain falling during Tuesday s stage the 33 year old could not even cite the adverse weather conditions as a factor although there were still heaps of snow lining the roads of both decisive climbs Wiggins was not the only rider to suffer during the demanding 167km stage in north east Italy with defending champion Ryder Hesjedal cracking on the first of two Cat 1 climbs to see his chances of defending his Giro crown annihilated with a massive 21 minute loss Robert Gesink Blanco also suffered on the brutal slopes of the final climb the Dutchman pedalling squares on his way to an exercise of damage limitation Gesink recovered admirably to finish 1 16 down on the irrepressible Uran but drops to fifth place on GC 2 12 down on Nibali who looked composed and strong over both climbs Betancur s second consecutive second place underlined Colombia s ascendancy in the world of cycling the 23 year old following in the wheel of Ag2R team mate Domenico Pozzovivo to put in a late surge that saw him cross the line 20 seconds down on Uran Italian Mauro Santambrogio Vini Fantini took fourth place nestled between Nibali and Evans to rise to seventh on GC behind compatriot Michele Scarponi Lampre Merida who lost touch with the race favourites on the final climb to finish a further two seconds behind Wiggins Polish youngster Rafal Majka Saxo Tinkoff impressed in the final climb to take sixth place ahead of Pozzovivo in the Nibali chasing group The 23 year old joins compatriot Przemyslaw Niemiec Lampre Merida to give Poland two riders in the top ten A duo from an initial break of 13 reached the foot of the final climb of the day with a small advantage over the peloton But with Team Sky setting an fast pace in the main group Venezuelan Jackson Rodriguez Androni Giocattoli and Dutchman Serge Pauwels Omega Pharma Quick Step were caught inside the final 10km The main pack was already deprived of Canada s Hesjedal who needed to be paced up the previous ascent the Cat 1 Passo Cason di Lanza by American team mate Tom Danielson after imploding on the steep and winding climb Having suffered a jour sans on Sunday s stage to Florence the Garmin Sharp leader showed that he has not got the legs this year to make an impact Hesjedal now lies in 33rd place on GC a whopping 23 45 down on Nibali Sky started the final climb of Altopiano with Kanstantin Siutsou and Dario Cataldo pulling hard on the front ahead of Uran while Wiggins dropped further back amid the main pack When Siutsou and Cataldo both peeled off with 8km remaining Uran did not so much attack as simply increase his tempo as he rode off the front with apparent nonchalence Soon the gap was as large as 50 seconds with a select chasing group forming But it became apparent that Uran s move was no platform for a counter attack by Wiggins when the Briton failed to respond to Astana s determined chase One by one riders started to slip back with Gesink Wiggins Scarponi and Spaniard Benat Intxausti Movistar feeling the heat on the hardest climb of the 96th edition of the Giro so far The diminutive Pozzivivo rode off in pursuit of Uran inside the final 3km and when the Italian was caught as the climb flattened out he handed the baton over to his team mate Betancur But Uran had done enough to secure the biggest win of his career and in doing so give the Team Sky management a serious tactical headache ahead of the vital mountain stages to come With just one second separating him and Wiggins on GC and with Uran showing much more composure and bite in the hills Wiggins may find his role in La Corsa Rosa reduced to supporting cameo Sky will not have to fit three pegs into one hole however after their second Colombian rider Sergio Henao struggled with the steep slopes to finish 3 14 behind his compatriot and drop out of the top 10 more than five minutes down on GC Nibali picked up vital bonus seconds in the second intermediate sprint 5km from the finish as well as over the finish line in third Those 11 seconds saw the Sicilian increase his lead on Evans to 41 seconds on GC Evans s strong finish saw the 36 year old strengthen his hold on the red jersey points classification to 73 points to Elia Viviani s 60 Cannondale s Viviani was part of the day s main break and picked up maximum points at the first intermediate sprint in Paularo to rise above Britain s Mark Cavendish OPQS in the standings The Giro d Italia continues on Wednesday with the 183km stage 11 from Tarvisio to Vajont a mountainous but less demanding affair which should favour a breakaway

Wiggins stays in the frame Posted on May 13 2013 by admin Reply Giro d Italia Belkov soloes to win in rainy Florence as Hesjedal falters This report from Eurosport Defending champion Ryder Hesjedal dropped out of the top 10 after losing more than a minute to his rivals on stage nine of the Giro won by Maxim Belkov Canada s Hesjedal crossed the line in Florence after another rain soaked stage one minute and six seconds behind a group of the race favourites to drop from sixth to eleventh place on GC The undulating 173km stage through the Apennine mountains from Sansepolcro to the Tuscan capital was won by Russian Belkov who soloed to the biggest win of his career after attacking from a break on the descent of the second of four categorised climbs Riding his second Giro d Italia 28 year old Belkov of Katusha came home 44 seconds ahead of Colombian Carlos Betancur Ag2R La Mondiale with another Colombian Jarlinson Pantano Colombia taking third place a further two seconds back I m so happy I won this stage my first as a pro if we exclude the TTT said Belkov From this morning at the bus I took a look to the altimetry and I realized it was a perfect stage for my characteristics moreover I live next to here in Prato so I know these roads I m thrilled I won this stage Katusha is proving to be a really strong team here in the Giro It s the second win we kept the jersey for five days and we want to continue like this in order to take some other great results Yesterday I didn t do a great job but I decided to save my legs for today a stage dedicated to breakaways better a first position today than a tenth place yesterday Sweden s Tobias Ludvigsson Argos Shimano took fourth place before Australian veteran Cadel Evans BMC led the main pack of race favourites including the maglia rosa Vincenzo Nibali Astana over the line 1 03 in arrears But Hesjedal cracked on the final Cat 4 ascent of Fiesole to compound a miserable two days after his disappointing performance in Saturday s individual time trial Last year s winner now trails Italy s Nibali by 3 11 on GC going into the race s first rest day It was yet another testing day for British hope Bradley Wiggins too the 2012 Tour de France champion distanced on the wet descent of the Cat 1 Vallombrosa climb inside the final 60km With Astana driving a fierce pace as the rain pounded down Wiggins dropped more than a minute off the pace and needed to be nursed back by five Sky team mates Tellingly Colombian duo Sergio Henao and Rigoberto Uran were not ordered back perhaps a sign that Sky are prepared to consider a Plan B in the 96th edition of the Corsa Rosa as their designated leader s confidence in wet conditions continues to play into the hands of his rivals The seeds of Belkov s victory were sown with the formation of a 12 man break around 20km into the stage following an attack by Stefano Pirazzi Bardiani Valvole and Robinson Chalapud Colombia Belkov Pirazzi Chalapud and his Colombia team mate Pantano Ludvigsson Alessandro Proni Vini Fantini Evgeni Petrov Saxo Tinkoff Michal Golas OPQS Giovanni Visconti Movistar Ricardo Mestre Euskaltel Juan Manuel Garate Blanco and Fabio Fellini Androni built up a lead of four minutes ahead of the first test of the day the Cat 2 Passo della Consuma Chalapud and Pirazzi rode off ahead in pursuit of the KOM points with the pair almost coming to blows as the Italian inadvertently cut into the line of his fellow escapee to take maximum points over the summit With the two leaders still arguing Belkov drew level on the descent after attacking from the chasing group On the Cat 1 Vallombrosa climb the biggest so far of the Giro Chalapud attacked and was soon joined by Pirazzi The pair exchanged more words and even came to a near standstill on a sodden climb through the trees as Belkov slowly returned on to their wheels Belkov was then allowed to ride clear as Pirazzi and Chalapud continued their bizarre spat with a bit of gamesmanship Pirazzi soon came to his senses and put in an attack The pair soon passed Belkov and it was the Italian who took the points going over the summit to secure the blue mountains jersey Although crossing the summit 47 seconds in arrears Belkov showed his prowess on wet downhill riding by catching the leading duo with consummate ease before opening up a commanding lead off the front The peloton trailed at more than six minutes and while the wet weather did not cause Wiggins to crash as he did in Friday s stage seven the Briton quickly lost touch as Astana drove a fierce pace on the long downhill With Wiggins on the ropes BMC Garmin and Movistar all came to the front to help Astana ahead of the final two climbs of the day Wiggins managed to regain contact with the main pack for the Cat 3 Vetta le Croci with 25km remaining Riding with gusto Belkov crossed the summit two minutes ahead of Pantano and Pirazzi The gap was reduced to just 1 20 by the time the Russian completed the final climb of the day But the 11 maximum gradient of the Cat 4 Fiesole which will feature in reverse order for the 2013 World Championship Road Race in Tuscany proved too much for Hesjedal who was quickly tailed off the back of the pursuing main pack With the remnants of the initial break being caught in drips and drabs Betancur attacked from the pack in pursuit of compatriot Pantano and Ludvigsson Belkov held on to take his first win of the season although this piece of information must not have reached Betancur who outsprinted Pantano for second place before unleashing the kind of celebration reserved for maiden Grand Tour stage winners Once again 2011 Tour de France champion Evans finished strongly to consolidate his second place on GC 29 seconds behind Nibali The Australian picked up enough points for his fifth place in Florence to move into the red jersey as leader of the points classification Robert Gesink Blanco finished in the main group to stay third 1 15 down and one second ahead of fourth place Wiggins who will be praying for better weather during the all important mountainous second phase of the race Michele Scarponi Lampre Merida completes the top five 1 24 off the summit while following Hesjedal s plummet down the standings Henao rises to sixth at 2 11 After Monday s rest day the Giro d Italia continues on Tuesday with the first proper mountain stage of the race a 168km ride from Cordenons to the summit of the Cat 1 Altopiano del Montasio Posted in News Tagged Giro Bar Italia Soho Frith Street Leave a reply The Buckingham Palace Rideout on May 25th

week on Giro Posted on May 10 2013 by admin Reply This from Eurosport Giro d Italia Cavendish the strongest in stage six Britain s Mark Cavendish benefited from a superb lead out to win a fast bunch sprint at the end of stage six of the Giro d Italia in Margherita di Savoia Cav wins stage 6 of 2013 Giro D Italia The Omega Pharma Quick Step sprinter was expertly launched by team mate Gert Steegmans in the closing straight before winning by a bike length ahead of rivals Elia Viviani Cannondale and Matt Goss Orica GreenEdge It was Cavendish s twelfth individual Giro stage win of his career and his second on the 2013 race following the opening day victory in Naples The 27 year old also moves back into the red jersey at the top of the points classification Overnight race leader Luca Paolini Katusha finished safely in the peloton to retain his maglia rosa The Italian leads Rigoberto Uran Team Sky by 17 seconds and Benat Intxausti Movistar by 26 seconds After his ninth scalp of the season Cavendish was quick to praise his team mates for a near flawless day in the saddle It was unbelievable I m so happy said Cavendish after exchanging a series of hugs with his OPQS colleagues We had no problems today Everything went well It was beautiful Gert Steegmans at his best is one of the best lead out men ever The former world champion showed his poetic side with a well crafted simile Imagine a big car the team are all the important bits and the engine I m just the last bit at the end the exhaust the bit that makes the most noise Cavendish also had a message for a former Quick Step rider sorely missed by friends family and the world of cycling alike I d like to dedicate this win to Wouter Weylandt It s two years ago today since his tragic death he said referring to the Belgian rider who suffered a fatal fall on the descent of the Passo del Bocco on stage three of the 2011 Giro If ever there was a stage with Cavendish s name on it this was it The short 169km ride along the Adriatic Coast and through the flat countryside of Puglia concluded with two laps of a 16km circuit and a pancake flat finale Two Australians the attacking Cameron Wurf Cannondale and young track specialist Jack Bobridge Blanco broke clear of the pack early on and built up a maximum lead of six and a half minutes With Wurf in the break the Cannondale team of Italian sprinter Viviani were under no obligation to lead the chase but they were nevertheless fairly active on the front of the peloton as their man nipped ahead of Cavendish on two occasions to take third place behind the escapees in the intermediate sprints With points from the finish taken into account Viviani now trails Cavendish by six points in the standings in what is now looking to be a two horse race Britain s Bradley Wiggins Team Sky had a scare after being caught up by a large pile up which caused half the peloton to come to a complete standstill on the first of two laps 32 kilometres from the finish The Tour de France champion was returning to the back of the peloton after picking up a puncture when the incident occurred With the crash barriers on the side of the road and the heap of mangled bikes and bodies forming a barricade on the road Wiggins and four Sky team mates could do nothing but wait until an opening emerged Luckily for Wiggins several other GC contenders were involved in the split including Italian favourite Vincenzo Nibali of Astana and compatriot Michele Scarponi of Lampre Merida As such the pace slowed on the front of the main pack until order was restored with 22km left to ride Inside the final five kilometres two riders Manuele Boaro Saxo Bank Tinkoff and Pim Ligthart Vacansoleil DCM were both thwarted after audacious solo attempts The scene was set for a sprint battle royale and the main protagonists did not disappoint The Argos Shimano team of Wednesday s winner John Degenkolb however made a hash of their tactics launching their man too early and disappearing without a trace Instead Belgian powerhouse Steegmans ushered Cavendish through with aplomb although it wasn t a pretty affair As much as OPQS got their tactics right on Thursday they are no HTC And they certainly benefited from the disarray among other teams French national champion Nacer Bouhanni FDJ found himself boxed in by the barriers on the left while Italian Mattia Gavazzi Androni Giocattoli appeared to propel himself past South African Robbie Hunter Garmin Sharp by using his arms to pull back his opponent Hunter and Gavazzi almost came to blows in the finish area and the race commissaires will no doubt have a look at replays and discipline the Italian accordingly There was no doubt about the win however From the moment Steegmans pulled away there was no doubt that Cavendish was going to double his tally on the 96th edition of the Corsa Rosa Viviani and Goss both did their best to get in the mix but in the end they were sprinting for second place Bouhanni crossed the line in fourth and slammed the handlebars in disgust after what was an extremely edgy affair The Giro continues on Friday with the hilly 177km stage seven through the Abruzzo region With four categorised climbs on the menu the testing stage from Marina Di San Salvo to Pescara on the Adriatic Coast will be the first major rendez vous for the big race favourites Posted in

Reply Giro d Italia Victory for Battaglin on Stage 4 Giro d Italia Victory for Battaglin as Wiggins loses time Britain s Bradley Wiggins lost precious seconds to his main rivals in a sodden stage four of the Giro d Italia won by Italian youngster Enrico Battaglin Race favourite Wiggins of Team Sky crossed the line in a second group 17 seconds behind the winner Battaglin of Italian wildcard team Bardiani Valvole to drop from second to sixth on GC The 2012 Tour de France champion was held up after three riders hit the deck in Apocalyptic conditions towards the finish Although the incident happened in the closing 3km the race jury only awarded the three riders who crashed the same time as the stage winner Following the controversial decision Wiggins is now level on time with defending champion Ryder Hesjedal of Garmin Sharp and 34 seconds behind the pink jersey Luca Paolini Katusha Twenty three year old Battaglin produced the ride of his career to reel in escapee Danilo Di Luca Vini Fantini inside the closing 100 metres before taking the victory in Serra San Bruno by a couple of bike lengths ahead of fellow Italians Fabio Felline Androni Giocattoli and Giovanni Visconti Movistar I was good yesterday and I hoped to win Battaglin said but in the end it felt more like a Moto GP than a bike race and I was dropped Today the climb suited me the rain might have stopped some riders and the gradient wasn t too hard and even though I attacked a bit early it went well He continued In 2011 after I had won everything as an amateur I started my pro career winning at the end of 2011 he won the Coppa Sabatini in October 2011 Perhaps I thought it was easier than it really is I may have paid for that last year when he failed to win once in 2012 This year I was determined to show that I m a good rider I worked hard in the winter and I m starting to reap the rewards Team Sky s Rigoberto Uran crossed the line in fourth place but in heavy mist and lashing rain there was no sign of the Colombian s team leader Wiggins who lost touch with the main group during the 6km run into the finish following the second of two categorised climbs towards the end of the long 246km stage Uran is now second on GC 17 seconds behind Paolini with Spaniard Benat Intxausti Movistar third at 26 seconds Italian favourite Vincenzo Nibali suffered a scare on the descent of the penultimate climb of the day 35km from the finish when picking up an untimely puncture But 2010 Vuelta champion Nibali was able to swap wheels with Astana team mate Valerio Agnoli and finished safely in the main group He rises to fourth on GC 31 seconds down on the maglia rosa Paolini A break of seven riders Julien Berard Ag2R La Mondiale Emanuele Sella Androni Giocattoli Miguel Minguez and Ioannis Tamouridis both Euskaltel Johan Le Bon and Francis Mourey both FDJ and Pim Ligthart Vacansoleil DCM rode off the front of the peloton shortly after the start of the Giro s second longest stage at Policastro Bussentino The seven escapees forged a maximum lead of just over seven minutes on the coastal roads heading to the toe of Italy But the presence of Sella just 2 39 down in the overnight standings meant that the Katusha team of race leader Paolini were wary of the break building up too much of an advantage When Sella Tamouridis and Mourey were dropped by the leading group it looked like the game was back on for the escapees The lead grew from three minutes to just under the five minute mark with around 70km remaining This gap however had been whittled down to just two minutes when the race reached the first real test of the day the Cat 3 Vibo Valentia Minguez attacked with Berard but both riders were reeled in before the summit as Stefano Pirazzi Bardiani Valvole jumped clear to take the points over the top By this point the sun and blue skies from the coastal road had been replaced with rain and mist making for a nervous conclusion to the stage A new five man break formed around Pirazzi and Marco Marcato of Vacansoleil DCM Frenchman Sylvain Georges Ag2R La Mondiale then went for broke at the start of the Cat 2 Croce Ferrata 18km from the finish Georges held a one minute advantage over the main pack which was being controlled by Team Sky and Katusha when Di Luca made his move The controversial Italian veteran who won the Giro in 2007 two years before being banned for testing positive to CERA third generation EPO powered clear of the pack taking Colombia s Robinson Chalapud in tow Georges was soon caught before the leaders crossed the summit with a slender advantage over the pack Rolling back the years Di Luca looked like he would defy the onslaught of the peloton The 37 year old seemed to have given up as he passed under the kite but was stirred by a last ditch blast by his Colombian colleague Neither rider quite had the strength to withstand the pack and Di Luca was swept up agonisingly close to the finish Battling through the rain Battaglin surged ahead of the rest of the field to take the win in his second appearance in the Giro d Italia Felline and Visconti were left to fight for the scraps although the latter managed to take back the blue mountains jersey after taking third place over both summit ahead of his third place at the finish Australian Cadel Evans of BMC finished strongly in sixth place to ride to 10th in the
