  • Thomas fends off Contador challenge for another Sky win in Paris-Nice


    Geraint Thomas maintained Team Sky's grip on Paris-Nice on Sunday, narrowly  winning the 74th edition of the Race to the Sun on the aptly-named Promenade des Anglais for the British outfit's fourth victory in five years in the event. But it was a tense battle for the Welshman, harassed all day by Alberto Contador (Tinkoff), who attacked repeatedly on the last two climbs before finishing second in both the stage and overall, missing his third Paris-Nice crown by a slim four seconds....

Nice: cycling under your skin
A significant cycling region will be playing host to the finish of the 74th edition of Paris-Nice once again. The Race to the Sun plays an active role in the rich athletic tradition of a city which is proud of its cycling heritage and continues to promote it by organising many sports events which place the bicycle centre-stage: hosting a brilliant team time trial during the 2013 Tour de France; the start of the Haute Route between Nice and Geneva every year since 2011; the French MTB championships in Auron in 2013; the yearly Transvésubienne, one of the best known long-distance cycling treks on the international circuit for more than 20 years, which runs from La Colmiane to Nice on a route more than 100km long; hosting the Electro Bike Festival in Auron for the past two years; and organising many bicycle touring events such as Explore Nice Métropole in 2014 and 2015. Thanks to its experience and know-how in the field of hosting and organising major sports events on an international scale, and to the rather exceptional territory it offers, Nice has become both a vital player in the eyes of the world's best-known organisations and a key destination for all cycling enthusiasts on the hunt for extraordinary circuits.  The most recent stage will not disappoint: its start and finish are on the world-famous Promenade des Anglais, and the road has increasingly been used for day-to-day cycling over the past few years. To support this change, a large, safe and uninterrupted cycle network has been put in place, with 140km which have been specifically adapted for cyclists. The long-term goal is to reach 400km by 2020, so that cycling can become a lasting alternative to cars for transport within the city, both in Nice and across the whole of the Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur area.
