Wiggins bags the British Sports Journalist award

It wasn’t an easy decision to make, but at last the British Sports Journalist award was handed to British cyclist Bradley Wiggins. Wiggins is the first ever Briton to win the Tour de France and it seems that it was enough to clinch him the award. He got the maximum number of votes beating U.S. Open champion Andy Murray and Olympic gold medalist Mo Farah. Jessica Ennis received the sportswoman of the year award for winning the gold medal in the heptathlon department. Ennis got the award for the third time in the last four years. Ennis also won the Pat Besford Trophy for exceptional performance of the year.

The decision to hand over the Best Sportsman award was not as easy as there were tough competitors. But from the beginning, Wiggins’ chance of getting it looked promising. Bradley Wiggins has managed to secure the fourth Olympic Gold Medal under his belt in 2012. Not only that but the 32-year-old Briton cyclist also got hold of the yellow jersey at the 2012 Tour de France for 13 consecutive stages.

The 29-year-old athlete Mo Farah was considered to be the second hot favorite. Farah registered two marvelous victories at the 5000m and 10000m race at the Olympic finals which left the whole England dancing to their feet. There is also the tennis icon, Andy Murray, with his gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. Murray then went on to win his maiden grand slam at the US Open.

Boxer Nicola Adams, cyclist Sarah Storey, swimmer Ellie Simmonds made it to the list. So the competition was a bit tough than the previous year. But with the exceptional performance in the summer and having been able to win the Tour de France as the first Briton ever, it always looked like Bradley Wiggins has definitely an edge over all other contenders!

Alberto Contador not to take part in Beijing

The Chinese fans will be thoroughly disappointed to know that Alberto Contador is not taking part in the Tour de Beijing. The Spaniard who returned to cycling after surviving a two year doping ban doesn’t want to participate in an event which is “pointless”. According to the rules of UCI Contador’s World Tour points won’t count as he is returning from a doping ban.

Contador won the Grand Tour Championship for five times and the Chinese fans were super excited to see him around. He also won the Vuelta a Espana this year just after returning from the ban. It has been stated earlier that Alberto Contador would participate in Beijing from October 9-13. But recently Bjarne Riis, the manager of Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank Team said that he wouldn’t be a part of it. He added that it would be wastage of energy for Contador to travel to Beijing and taking part in the race as he won’t be getting any World Points in the elite category even if he secures the first spot.

Surely Contador’s presence would have made the Tour of Beijing much more interesting and popular but one can’t argue with the points that have been given in favor of his withdrawal. Contador was the man who scored most of the points last year for his team to survive the World Tour. So his team will certainly be missing him this time.

Alberto Contador’s centre of attention now is the World Championship which will take place in Netherlands in the latter half of September. He will be making his first appearance in the World Championship since 2008 and he is keen on winning it. There he will compete in the road race category as well as in the individual time trial category. If Contador can make it in the championship then it will be a huge confidence booster for him after the ‘ban-setback’.

Lance Armstrong Escaped Hotel Raid

Disgraced former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who was recently stripped of all his titles and awards as well as banned for life for being a dope cheat by the US Anti Doping Agency escaped a hotel raid by the police in France by the skin of his teeth, just because he was, at that time, being ‘protected in the country’, according to a French lawyer. The cycling legend has recently been handed the sanction by the US Anti Doping Agency after he refused to exercise his right for arbitration at a neutral and independent hearing.

According to the lawyer, Thibault de Montbrial, the incident occurred during the 2005 edition of the Tour de France. He claimed that during just the second rest day of the 2005 edition of the Grand Tour, a hotel in Pau which was being occupied by Lance Armstrong and his teammate was set to be raided by high ranking officials of the French Police, who were on the lookout for doping substance and the elaborate methods of doping. However, the plan to raid the hotel was dropped at the very last minute.

These claims by the lawyer comes merely a couple of days after a famous newspaper in France claimed that Armstrong had enjoyed an almost immune status in France and was often warned about doping controls. De Montbrial even claimed that the investigators were almost at the doorstep of the hotel when the higher authorities called off the raid, therefore, saving Armstrong and his team.

Although the lawyer claims not to know where the orders to abort the operation came from, he admitted that on the back of this evidence, it can be clearly stated that Lance Armstrong enjoyed massive protection in France. Now, with him being banned, the ghosts of the past are all coming back.

FOCUS ON LANCE ARMSTRONG

Lance Edward Armstrong is a former American professional road racing cyclist who holds a record of winning Tour de France seven consecutive times. He is not only one of the most celebrated athletes in the world but also a survivor.

He was diagnosed with cancer at a very early stage of his career that affected his lungs, abdomen and brain. He was a fighter and an inspiration to millions of people around the world. He opened Lance Armstrong Foundation so as to educate people about early stage of cancer detection and ways to cure the disease.

Armstrong started his professional career in 1992 and went on to win various championships. He had been marked for greatness from an early age, with his first coach sticking a bet at Bet Victor that he would win the Tour de France some day before he way 30.

Sadly he was diagnosed with cancer in 1996. It was a life threatening cancer as there was very less chance of survival. He was a fighter, who not only survived cancer but also was keen to make a comeback in cycling. He started training for racing by January 1998 after which what we witnessed was a history.

He won his first Tour de France in 1999, which rather stunned the world. He only used to take part in Tour de France events every year due to his health issues and went on to win every Tour de France over the next 6 years. Armstrong always had a healthy lead over his competitors during the competition.

Lance Armstrong decided to quit after winning the 2005 Tour de France but announced his comeback in 2008 to participate in 2009 Tour de France. He was also alleged for doping and the doping issue has not been resolved yet as Armstrong still denies of using performance enhancement drugs to win races. Armstrong finally called it a quit on February 16, 2011 thought the latest online betting with betvictor.com suggests that there is still a chance he will make another comeback!

Armstrong has received numerous awards for his outstanding achievements but he mostly cherishes the moment of battling the cancer, which he says to be most difficult accomplishment as compared to winning the Tour de France. He is a fighter, a survivor and one of the most influential athletes in the world.

Fabian Cancellara returns

Fabian Cancellara returned to competitory battle last week at the Bayern-Rundfahrt; the Swiss rider told that the race was a utilitarian guess of his form in front of his targets later in summer. After the classics drive was cut little by broken collarbone suffered in a smash at Tour of Flanders, Fabian Cancellara changed his aim to formulations for the 2012 London Olympics especially, even though he stated that his convalescence had been much more complicated compared than it is anticipated.

Fabian left Bayern-Rundfahrt on final level, whereas a day before, he might only handle 14th in time trial, 1:15 low on Michael Rogers, the winner. Given the path he has moved around since 1st April, still, Fabian Cancellara was simply pleased to come back in battle.

While speaking to Het Nieuwsblad, Fabian Cancellara told that he is convinced that this was a nice race to get into the contest. One knows that when one is not in status, a time of that sort really tough.

He aroused on Sunday along with a destructed body as well as stuffy nose. Ultimately this demonstrated to be a utilitarian experience. Now he knows that he loves to work.

While stresses between the Schleck brothers and Johan Bruyneel were worsened by the withdrawal of Frank Schleck the Giro d’Italia, Fabian Cancellara was handed a forceful vote of confidence last week by his own manager, who told that that Cancellara was the single rider ensured of his spot in Tour de France line-up.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD BIKE REVIEW

It is very important for a buyer to get a knowhow or preview of the product he is buying. In case of bikers a good Bike Review helps them in deciding which one to buy and which to not. A good review clearly holds up the pros and cons related to buying a particular bike.

Bikes as we know them, isn’t the only ones available. There are a whole lot of bikes depending upon their performance and the terrain they are suitable for. For example a racing bike will be different from a mountain bike.

All the features of a bike are revealed in a bike review for the customers benefit. Be it an online review or one that is available in a magazine, a good review is always welcome. In a review more emphasis is given on the performance rather than the looks. Though, looks are also not ignored. The ideal bike for a rider will vary from person to person depending upon their requirements and also the budget. The price of a bike varies from category to category. The pricing and evaluation according to it is also an important part of a good review.

Not all can give a good bike review. To do that the reviewer has to have a good understanding about the various parts of a bike and its functionality. Depending blindingly on a review is also not good. One who can’t differentiate a road bike from a mountain bike will not be able to make out anything fruitful from a good review. Generally reviews are given by those who have been ex bikers or have been closely associated with the making of one. There are really mindboggling technicalities involved in the making of a good bike and no layman can decipher it.
