The best French rider in the 2013 Tour de France tells us about his weak spot for Paris-Nice, a race he discovered last year. However, ambition is the overriding emotion as Romain Bardet gears up for the 72nd Race to the Sun. His 13thplace at the recent Tour of Oman (where he was the best young rider) and his win at the Drôme Classic the day before yesterday have put him on the map as one of the outsiders who could very well upset favourites such as Richie Porte, Vincenzo Nibali and Tejay...

Richie Porte became the first Australian to win Paris-Nice when he sealed victory in the final time trial on Col d'Eze on Sunday. The 28-year-old Tasmanian clocked 19:16 to emulate his Team Sky leader Bradley Wiggins, who achieved the same double last year.
