Racing round-up

Cooking up a storm

Nicole Cooke really appears to have put her injury woes behind her as she takes over the lead in the season-long Women’s World Cup. Cooke had won the prestigious Women’s Fleche Wallonne last week showing that she was back to her best and a 5th place at the Tour de Berne cemented her return to the top spot in the rankings.

Shay Elliott – Results – 163.5 km

Malcom Elliott continues to show the youngsters a thing or two about bike racing, in this classic hardman’s race in Ireland last weekend. He rides the Chas Messenger stage race this weekend followed by the Lincoln Grand Prix (that he won 23 years ago!) and then the Melton-Rutland the following weekend. No sign that he’s getting tired then…

Jan heads to Romandie

It’s been a slow start to the 2006 season for Jan Ullrich. But he finally made it to a race the Swiss tour of Romandie. It’s been a shaky start so far as he’s 117th overall and 10.26 back on the current leader Chris Horner. Clearly still a bit of work to do then. Roger Hammond is sitting in the wheels and is 142nd overall some 10 minutes back too. We’ll keep you posted…
