Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it! So, what did you miss?

Quick-Step takes stage two

Yves Lampaert attacked with roughly a kilometre to go, and his team managed to pull the peloton apart in the crosswinds. A number of riders were able to follow him but Quick-Step made the best out of their numbers as Matteo Trentin managed to block the others behind him. Most of the GC contenders finished safely eight seconds after the front group.

Impressive Team Sky bus

Contador’s special bike

The Spaniard got a stunning custom Trek Émonda SLR for his final ever race. It has a unique paint scheme including references to all the major races he has won. There is also Alberto’s personal motto ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’ on the bike.

We know the feeling

Uran is in serious form

Dancing with the stars, perhaps? Definitely a nice audition tape by Rigoberto.
