Details make the difference. It’s a known saying and Victor truly believes it. Especially when in the position to break the World Hour Record. You notice it in everything he does. While we were zooming in on his preparation in Namibia, the following photo was taken.
Namibia, not your everyday cycling destination. But exactly the place where Victor Campenaerts spent his time preparing for his World Hour Record (timed by Tissot) attempt on April 16 or 17. Not just for the exotics, the European ITT champ had some very specific reasons to choose that spot for his training camp. “Definitely not […]

He’s anatypical rider without attitude who rather prefers to attack than to hide in the peloton’s belly. Doing the lead-out for Greipel’s sprint? Too much wriggling. Warming up for a time trial?

A flat stage with a traditional scenario. The La Vuelta 18th stage from Ejea de los Caballeros to Lleida was an excellent opportunity for sprinters to show their fast legs after the hills of the last exhausting days.
