The Colombian was due to ride the Giro in 2019 but changed his schedule after suffering a broken collarbone in a training crash shortly before the race. He went on to ride and win the Tour de France.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
