    The morning dawned on day two in London with more uncharacteristic sunshine and the promise of a spectacular women’s road race on the horizon. That promise was upheld by the 66 riders representing 35 different countries across all 140-kilometers of the grueling race, the weather however, was a different story.

    In a wild day of cycling in London, Kazakhstan’s Alexandr Vinokurov took the top spot on the men’s road cycling podium, followed closely behind by Columbia’s Rigoberto Uran. Vinokurov bettered his 3rd place finish in 2000 with his top performance today in London. While he was planning retirement following the 2012 season already, Vinokurov was more than happy to win the biggest race of his career during its final moments. Team Great Britain, who was considered a heavy favorite in the race, controlled the front of the peloton most of the day, but didn’t have enough in the end to top Vinokurov and the rest of the riders in front of them.

    The fourteenth stage of the 2012 Tour de France was lined up to be an epic battle including all of this year’s big names, jockeying for position in the overall individual time classification. The 119-mile stage ranging from Limoux to Foix was a beauty, with two massive climbs towards the end of the day. On the single-lane road up the Mur de Peguere, all the top contenders in the Tour were side by side, jammed in between a thick field of spectators. There is no explaining the grit riders show climbing the massive grades of the Tour de France. Once at the top, most of them are slightly relieved with the downhill race that follows. Unfortunately, that relief was marred at the top of the 9.3 km climb of the Mur de Peguere.
