SKY Sports cycling coverage continues with…


  • Paris to Roubaix, France (April 10-13): Probably the most important one-day race in the world, the "Hell of the North" takes riders north from the French capital to the velodrome at Roubaix across some of the roughest stretches of cobble stones in Western Europe. 
  • Fléche Wallone, Belgium (April 22)
  • Liége-Bastogne-Leigé, France (April 26): Two of the most prestigious "Spring Classics" on Cycling's calendar.
  • Tour de Romandie, Switzerland (April 28): The Pro-tour swings in to Switzerland for a race that always seems to throw up a surprise victor.
  • Tour of California, USA (May 17-24): Now later in the year, the California tour has quickly become America's number one bike race.
  • Tour de Suisse, Switzerland (June 13)
  • Dauphiné Libere 2010 (June 6-13): The Swiss tour and the Dauphine are the ideal lead-ups to the Tour de France and the real indicators to who is going to take the favourites mantle into the season's biggest bike race.
  • Tour de France, France (July 3-25): Here it is, the climax to the season, 21 stages around France. The race that every bike riders dreams of starting ... and only a very elite few can ever contemplate winning
  • Paris Tours, France (Mid Oct): The fastest one day classic on the calendar.


The five New Zealanders who'll be vying for places in the Tour de France and all the lead-up races are; Julian Dean of Waihi who rides for the Garmin-Transiions team, Hayden Roulston of Tinwald with HTC-Columbia, Greg Henderson of Dunedin who's signed for the new British team, Team Sky, Tim Gudsell from Kihikihi rides for the French outfit Francaise des Jeux... and finally there's Sam Bewley of Rotorua who's been signed to Lance Armstrong's new team, RadioShack.
