Van der Poel will not participate in mountain bike events this year https://joergteuchert.com/van-der-poel-will-not-participate-in-mountain-bike-events-this-year/ Wed, 11 May 2022 07:47:26 +0000 https://joergteuchert.com/van-der-poel-will-not-participate-in-mountain-bike-events-this-year/

After Tom Pidcock’s dominant performance at the UCI XCO World Cup in AlbstadtMTB fans have been expecting a battle between the two biggest all-around riders this season.

With immense abilities in road racing, cyclocross and mountain biking, Tom Pidcock and Mathieu Van Der Poel form a formidable rivalry. But since Pidcock won gold at the Tokyo Olympics, the two haven’t met as often as fans would like, especially at mountain bike events.

the Tokyo Olympics was an unfortunate time for Van der Poel. He was expected to be a serious medal contender, but he crashed badly, hurt your lower back. The injury has blunted some of the Dutch cycling superstar’s potential over the past year.

All About Road Biking – For Now

Recovered and racing at the Giro D’Italia, Van der Poel seems to have regained much of his form. But this season it will focus on cycling Grand Tours rather than mountain bike events.

After the Giro d’Italia, van der Poel will race the Tour de France, before starting his preparations for the UCI Road Bike World Championships in Australia in the spring.

A committed program of Grand Tour and road races leaves little room for the mountain bike events of the UCI XCO World Cup. It’s a shame, because any mountain bike race featuring Van der Poel and Pidcock may be the most exciting rivalry
in all of cycling.

Van der Poel has a point to prove, and his terrible experience at the Tokyo Olympics will no doubt motivate him for the Paris Games in 2024. And that will mean plenty of mountain biking next year.

“The S2 Del Mar model represents the next step in the evolution of the LiveWire brand,” said Jochen Zeitz, president and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “The ARROW architecture underpinning the Del Mar, developed in-house at LiveWire Labs, demonstrates our ambition to lead in the EV space and establish LiveWire as the most desirable electric motorcycle brand in the world.”

Advanced LiveWire ARROW architecture

LiveWire’s scalable ARROW architecture with proprietary battery, motor, charging and control systems debuts on the Del Mar model and was designed by LiveWire Labs in Mountain View, California. The ARROW architecture is intended to be modular and serves as the central component of the bike’s chassis.

Del Mar is designed to give its rider thrilling performance with a targeted 80 horsepower (59.6 kW), delivering projected 0-60 mph times of 3.5 seconds. The city range should be 100 miles. * The Del Mar model’s goal weight is 440 pounds or less.

Illegal motorcycles are still a problem in Raymond Terrace – News Of The Area https://joergteuchert.com/illegal-motorcycles-are-still-a-problem-in-raymond-terrace-news-of-the-area/ Tue, 10 May 2022 12:12:22 +0000 https://joergteuchert.com/illegal-motorcycles-are-still-a-problem-in-raymond-terrace-news-of-the-area/

UNREGISTERED motorcycles are increasingly a problem in Raymond Terrace and especially on the Lakeside Trail.

At the recent Council meeting on April 26, 2022, a report was presented to Councilors on the Council’s management approach.

Port Stephens Council Assets Section Manager John Maretich said the council is taking a collaborative approach, working with local police to deal with illegal motorbikes.

“NSW Police have recently requested the assistance of Port Stephens Council, neighboring councils and other major landowners such as National Parks and Hunter Water Corporation to try to tackle the activity.

“Currently, the police are running programs including education and monitoring with the aim of reducing illegal motorcycling activities and have requested the assistance of the Council through the collaboration of education, communication and information “, Mr. Maretich said.

Mr Maretich said after reviewing physical barrier options along Lakeside with police, there was an indication it may not have the desired effect due to the trail’s easy access to reserves neighbours.

“When confronted with barriers, illegal cyclists may be forced to enter further into adjacent properties/reserves and still access the trail between the physical barriers.

“Furthermore, the placement of physical barriers can lead to risky behavior by illegal cyclists on the road network, which raises further concerns and risks for the public and legal drivers on our road network,” said Mr. Maretich.

Port Stephens Council said it would continue to work with police to reduce illegal motorcycling activity.

Port Stephens Hunter Police District believe this combined illegal motorcycle program will provide a better outcome than spending funds on barrier options there.

Scott’s new time trial bike spotted at Giro d’Italia https://joergteuchert.com/scotts-new-time-trial-bike-spotted-at-giro-ditalia/ Mon, 09 May 2022 11:44:36 +0000 https://joergteuchert.com/scotts-new-time-trial-bike-spotted-at-giro-ditalia/

A new Scott time trial bike made its WorldTour debut on Stage 2 of the 2022 Giro d’Italia.

Ridden by Team DSM overall classification hopefuls Romain Bardet and Thymen Arensman, the new bike combines deep, truncated aero tube shapes with lowered seatstays and an aero seatpost.

The front of the bike tapers to a narrow point on the leading edge, and all brake cables and hoses are routed internally through the handlebars and into the frame.

It bears more than a passing resemblance to many other recently released time trial bikes, such as the Merida Time Warp TT, Canyon Speedmax CFR Disc TT and Specialized S-Works Shiv TT Disc.

All of these bikes are designed to optimize aerodynamics within the strict technical regulations set by cycling’s world governing body, the UCI, while being light and nimble enough for ever-increasing time trial courses. more hilly and technical than you find in WorldTour races.

Scott’s unique time trial bike combines large truncated aero tube shapes with an integrated cockpit and disc brakes.

Disc brakes and new cockpit

As expected, the new bike also uses disc brakes, with Team DSM riders using the latest Dura-Ace C60 front wheel and RT-MT900 rotors from Shimano’s new Dura-Ace R9200 groupset, combined with calipers from brake from the previous Dura-Ace R9100. band.

The bike also appears to have a highly adjustable integrated cockpit, with carbon aero extensions that can be adjusted for height, angle and length.

The carbon aero extensions appear to use split spacers that allow length adjustment without disconnecting any cables.
Tim de Waele/Getty Images

Typically, time trial specialists have turned to third-party manufacturers, such as Wattshop and AeroCoach, for integrated aero extensions. These can deliver ergonomic and aerodynamic performance that surpasses that of the standard 22.2mm round aero extensions.

It looks like Scott has found a way to incorporate at least some of these improvements into their stock design, while still maintaining a wide range of adjustability to accommodate different riders.

Since previous Scott Plasmas often used cockpits made by Profile Design, it is possible that this new cockpit is of the same origin.

The unbranded armrests, for example, look a lot like Profile Design’s Race armrests.

The front end is clean and tidy, as you’d expect from WorldTour time trial bikes.
Tim de Waele/Getty Images

Is it the Scott Plasma 6 TT?

As it stands, we don’t have a name for this new bike.

It does not appear on the List of UCI approved framesetsperhaps indicating that the bike we spotted is still in development.

The large amount of armrests used by each rider might suggest that Scott doesn’t have the new bike available in all sizes just yet.
Tim de Waele/Getty Images

That only Bardet and Arensman rode it, and that both rode frames that were – depending on how much armrest stack was added – on the short side for riders their size, suggests that Scott only has a limited number of these framesets available, not in every size.

Alternatively, given the tough course profiles of the two Giro d’Italia 2022 time trials, it’s possible that both riders simply opted to ride on smaller-than-normal frames in search of weight savings. marginal weights (Bardet was even riding an unpainted frame—a weight-saving trick we often see on dedicated hill-climb bikes).

Bardet rode an unpainted version of the new bike, presumably to keep the weight of the bike as low as possible.
Stuart Franklin/Getty Images

Since the current UCI legal time trial bike in Scott’s catalog is the Plasma 5, and the Plasma 4, Plasma 3, Plasma 2 and the original Plasma preceded it, we might reasonably expect it to be the Plasma 6.

The only problem with this logic is that the Scott Plasma 6 already exists, in the form of a non-UCI legal triathlon bike.

Scott’s Plasma 6 is definitely not UCI legal.
Jochen Haar/Scott

Could Scott follow a similar naming convention as some other manufacturers and just add a ‘TT’ suffix to the name of their UCI legal TT bike (as Canyon and Specialized have done with the Speedmax CFR and S -Works Shiv Disc, respectively), what makes it the Scott Plasma 6 TT?

We have reached out to Scott to ask for details on this new bike and will update this article if we receive any new information.

Josh Brookes eyes North West 200 shock after taking over PBM Ducati race vacated by Michael Dunlop https://joergteuchert.com/josh-brookes-eyes-north-west-200-shock-after-taking-over-pbm-ducati-race-vacated-by-michael-dunlop/ Sun, 08 May 2022 19:02:00 +0000 https://joergteuchert.com/josh-brookes-eyes-north-west-200-shock-after-taking-over-pbm-ducati-race-vacated-by-michael-dunlop/

The Aussie rider has been given an unexpected nod to race the Ducati Panigale MCE in Superbike racing after Michael Dunlop’s shock split from Paul Bird’s team.

Dunlop made the bombshell announcement last month at the official launch of the TT, and the Bird team owner turned to Brookes to fill the void.

The 39-year-old, based in Bedfordshire, last raced in the North West in 2014 when he finished second in the Superbike race behind Dunlop. Brookes also set a lap record on the Milwaukee Yamaha R1 on his final lap.

Josh Brookes on the MCE Ducati Panigale. The Australian rider will return to the North West 200 in Superbike racing for the first time since 2014.

It was an impressive performance from the Australian, who had only made his NW200 debut a year earlier for the Tyco Suzuki team of Northern Ireland.

And despite his long absence, Brookes doesn’t think he’ll be far ahead at Saturday’s two Superbike races on the 8.9-mile ‘Triangle’ course, where Carrickfergus man Glenn Irwin is aiming a fifth consecutive victory in the blue. riband class on a Honda Racing UK Fireblade.

Three of Irwin’s four straight Superbike victories came on Ducati machines for Bird’s team in 2017 and 2018.

“I have full confidence in the bike and in the team, and even though I haven’t ridden there since 2014, remember I almost won the Superbike race and set a new lap record at the era,” Brookes said.

“So our expectations are high and I’m really looking forward to it and seeing the fans again after the past two years.

“We hadn’t originally planned to race the North West 200 under my agreement with PBM and the MCE Ducati Racing Team this year, but it was a pleasant last minute surprise when the opportunity arose. is presented.

“The question everyone asks is how competitive the Ducati MCE will be on the NW200 track and that’s a question I can’t answer until I’ve ridden it.

“But I have no reason to believe that we can’t do well, or really well in fact. The Ducati is known for being fast and even if we are a few tenths short in BSB, I don’t think that will be a problem with the very nature of the event,” he added.

“I have spent many years living in Northern Ireland so it will be good to see some familiar faces and hopefully the weather will be good and we can get all the expected track time.”

Brookes and former Superbike World Champion Tom Sykes lead the MCE Ducati team in the British Superbike Championship.

The North West will be a unique race for Brookes, with the team stressing there are no plans to contest the TT with the Australian, who last raced on the Isle of Man with Norton in 2018.

The addition of Brookes adds spice to an already stellar Superbike lineup, which also includes big names such as Peter Hickman, Dean Harrison, James Hillier, Alastair Seeley, Conor Cummins, Davey Todd, Michael Rutter, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Lee Johnston and Richard Cooper.

Roads close for the opening practice sessions on Tuesday May 10 from 9:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. as the event returns in anger for the first time since 2019.

Don’t keep turning on Tuesday (May 10) for a special eight-page NW200 preview.

Razgatlioglu “disappointing” in the first races https://joergteuchert.com/razgatlioglu-disappointing-in-the-first-races/ Fri, 06 May 2022 12:49:13 +0000 https://joergteuchert.com/razgatlioglu-disappointing-in-the-first-races/

Defending WSBK champion Razgatlioglu failed to score a win in the first two rounds of the year at Aragon and Assen last month, struggling to keep pace with Kawasaki’s Jonathan Rea and the returnee from Ducati Alvaro Bautista.

Razgatlioglu had already dropped 27 points from the championship lead before the final race in Assen, where an accident with arch-rival Rea in 2021 forced both drivers to retire.

Now facing a whopping 45-point deficit in the riders’ standings to Bautista, Razgatlioglu needs a strong result in Portugal to get his championship challenge back on track and defend Yamaha’s first WSBK title in over a decade. .

Razgatlioglu’s manager and five-time Supersport world champion Sofuoglu has admitted the 25-year-old’s results have so far fallen short of expectations, but hopes the changes they have since agreed will give the desired results.

“As for the season, with Toprak, I can’t say that we started the season the way we wanted or hoped,” Sofuoglu told the official WSBK website. “We are a bit disappointed.

“Honestly, we sat down with Toprak and checked what we do, what we did and how every part of our life, training and mentality. I think we weren’t right , and Toprak decided to make some changes.

Razgatlioglu did not claim a victory until the ninth race of his winning campaign in 2021 at Misano, where Pirelli presented a new SCX qualifying tire that better suited the Yamaha rider.

However, early evidence suggests the competition this year is much tougher than in 2021, with Bautista in particular emerging as a tougher rival than his predecessor Scott Redding on an upgraded Ducati bike.

Explaining the changes Razgatlioglu has made ahead of the May 20-22 Estoril Round, Sofuoglu said: “In general, every practice, way of life, way of mentality, and I think we will have a Toprak different in Estoril.

“I will be there to support Toprak because we have to win. There have been six races and he still hasn’t been able to win anything, and he is world champion, we have to win. Now we are building very well for the next round.
