Men’s Cycling

Men’s cycling is where my interest started, by watching the 1996 Tour de France.

Since then I’ve watched a lot of it, have my favourite riders and teams and can have a reasonable go at predicting results.

I try and write as many race previews as I can to help with fantasy teams and give information to those interested. Particularly with women’s racing too.

You can read all my posts on men’s cycling below – always let me know if you think my predictions are wildly off!

Greatest Spring Classics Races – Milan San Remo

La Classicicissima is another old old bike race, starting up in 1907 (and an amateur 2-day version in 1906). The soon to be 2-time Tour de France winner Lucien Petit-Breton won the first race.

The 1920s were dominated by Costante Girardengo who won the race 6 times and had 5 further podium places. The Italian dominance continued into the 1940s with heavyweights like Alfredo Binda, Gino Bartali & Fausto Coppi all winning the race.

How Much do Pro Cyclists Earn?

The world of cycling sees a wide gulf between how much pro cyclists earn and the many many cyclists scraping by at the bottom of the Continental level. Compared to other sports though – like football – cyclists actually still earn relatively ‘normal’ incomes through their sport.

In this article, I’m going to attempt to show some of the known figures for riders across different levels of men’s cycling and the difference in money between men’s and women’s cycling.
