Lance Armstrong has hit the news again. This time he has met Emma O’Reilly and apologised. Emma was a soigneur at the Armstrong’s US Postal Service Team and was one of the first to denounce both Lance, and the culture of pro-cycling in the late 90s and early 00s. Emma’s accusations have since been proved true.

At the start of the year, Fabian Cancellara stated that he would attempt to break the Athlete’s Hour Record. The Athlete’s Hour must be attempted on a standard bike, which must be very similar to Eddy Merckx’s bike from his own hour record. Cancellara has met with Trek DS Luca Guercilena to discuss the logistics of this attempt.

Sven Nys has won another Superprestige Cyclocross race. He took a sprint victory on the classic (and brutal) Asper-Gavere course ahead of German Philip Walsleben. Walsleben is much improved this year and will doubtless challenge the Belgian dominance of ‘cross.
