The women’s team has already returned to winning ways, and next week it’s the turn of Mitchelton-Scott’s men’s squad to re-start their racing season at the Vuelta a Burgos, with a stacked climbing squad that contains Simon Yates and Esteban Chaves. The Vuelta a Burgos, July 28 to August 1, has a stellar start list with Remco Evenepoel, Mark Cavendish, Alejandro Valverde, and Richard Carapaz set to race. 

The five-day race has two stages for the sprinters but the remaining four days are dialed in for the climbers and the GC contenders, with Yates and Chaves, set to be supported by Mikel Nieve and Jack Haig in the mountains.

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.
