Missing ‘home’ in particular became more and more a burden for the Slagter, who was able to manage well, especially in the hills. “Every day away from home there was one too many. I just wanted to be with the kids.”
Slagter started his career with the Rabobank team, for which he made his professional debut in the peloton in 2011. After that he was under contract with Belkin, Garmin Sharp, Cannondale, Dimension Data and last season B&B Hotels-Vital Concept.

Slagter rode the Giro d’Italia four times, the Tour de France three times and the Vuelta a España once. Only after his baptism of fire in a big round, the Giro of 2011, he did not reach the finish after three weeks.

Designed for long distances. Tough climbs alternating with technical descents to be experienced to the fullest while remaining in the saddle for several hours. Performance, careful geometries and technological innovation come together in the Olympia F1-X, top model in the family of full suspended of the Italian house that has gone through three centuries of passion for pedals in Italian sauce.

LE SCAN SPORT – The 2020 Golden Ball will not be awarded this year but the Bayern Munich striker will console himself with this gift made by one of his fans.
The organizers of the Ballon d’Or announced last July that the famous distinction rewarding the best footballer of the year would not be awarded this year given the upheaval of competitions by the Covid-19. This news has ruined the hopes of Robert Lewandowski to succeed Lionel Messi, the Polish striker of Bayern Munich presenting himself as the big favorite with the coronation in the Champions League, the Bundesliga title and his avalanche of goals scored in recent months ( 59 goals in 53 matches).
“We won everything we could win with Bayern. I’ve been the top scorer in all the competitions we’ve been to, the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League. I think a player who has accomplished this would win the Golden Ball, ”said the scorer disappointed, reacting to the cancellation of the discount for 2020.
Lewandowski accepts the trophy with humor
In the absence of gold, Lewandowski will be satisfied with plastic. One of his fans made him a superb trophy, a replica of the Ballon d’Or, but in Lego. A handsome player, the attacker posed with the reward alongside the one to whom we owe “the work”. “Thank you @quebahombre for this magnificent trophy that you have made for me”, joked the international well on the way to be, once again, one of the big favorites of the Ballon d’Or 2021. With 13 goals scored in 11 matches since the start of the season, the six-time winner of the Bundesliga has started at the same infernal pace as last season.
All Lewandowski’s goals in the Champions League last season
Already winner in 2019, Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) won the Tour of Spain 2020 this Sunday, November 8, at the end of the 18th and last stage in Madrid, won by the German Pascal Ackermann (Bora- Hansgrohe). The Slovenian did not experience the same mishap as in September on the Tour de France, where he had cracked on the penultimate stage and left the victory to Tadej Pogacar. Wearing the red jersey on 13 of the 18 stages of this shortened Vuelta, winner of four of them, Primoz Roglic is ahead of Ecuadorian Richard Carapaz (Ineos, at 24 seconds) and Briton Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling, at 1 ‘ 15) in the general classification. He is the first rider to retain his title in the Vuelta since the Spaniard Roberto Heras (four victories, including three consecutive between 2003 and 2005).
Just a week after a first victory on the Spanish heights, the Finistérien David Gaudu again raised his arms, in the cold and the rain, Saturday, November 7 during the penultimate stage of the Tour of Spain, from which he brings back a nice eighth place overall.
Will this final Spanish week play the role of trigger in his career, after a sensational debut in the Tour of the Future 2016? Restricted for three years to the role of luxury teammate of Thibaut Pinot, with some success in the 2019 Tour and in the throes of abandonment in 2020, the eternal hope finally had the keys to his team, Groupama FDJ, unique leader for the Vuelta.
“If I am a champion? I don’t know, it’s still too early to tell he breathed after his second victory. In any case, it’s huge! Thibaut (Pinot) had won two stages the last time he came to the Vuelta (in 2018). I said to myself: “Why not me?” “
Convince him that he can be with the best
Since his arrival on the professional circuit, his sports director Marc Madiot has never stopped presenting him as the future successor of his current leader, Thibaut Pinot. His talent, especially when the road rises, has not escaped the radar of the other big bosses of French cycling. “Gaudu, he’s the best you’ll see, he hasn’t always been lucky”, explained to The cross, Jérôme Pineau, the manager of the B § B Hotels-Vital Concept team, the day after the young Breton left the Tour de France, defeated by an injury during the first stage.
This step towards the big world that he hesitates to take, his boss at Groupama-FDJ Marc Madiot took briskly, Saturday evening November 7. “His performance will open his eyes. She will eventually convince him that he can be with the best for three weeks. I don’t think he doubted it, I think he needed to verify it. Psychologically, it won’t be the same. ” Words relayed in the columns of Telegram from Brest by its road captain, Thibaut Pinot.
“It’s his turn to be the leader on a grand tour”
For the Franc-Comtois, the Spanish episode of David Gaudu “Shows that his apprenticeship is finished”. “Now it’s his turn to become a leader on the Grand Tours. This is a very good thing for the Groupama-FDJ team. I’m not surprised either, it shows from the start that he was made to be a leader. He just has to manage his days when he is a little less well. ” All the leaders know it, the great Tours are won on the feat of one day and on the management of effort and fatigue the other days. And also on the conviction that we can win.
David Gaudu’s record remains modest in terms of his displayed abilities: a second place in the Tour de l’Ain, a 13e rank in the Tour de France 2019 and some runners-up in the classics. With the Tour of Spain coming to the end of the season, he has all winter to consider his new status. At 24, he has no more time to waste: at his age, Laurent Fignon and Bernard Hinault had already brought the yellow jersey back to Paris. Without forgetting that the Big Loop has been offered over the past two years to two kids even younger than him, Egan Bernal and Tadej Pogacar.
Ultradistance, on the rise, can cause temporary damage to the brain and nervous system and even chronic damage to the heart
«In my beginnings, all my relatives accompanied me to an Ultra Trail of Mont Blanc and, among them, my sister-in-law, who is a doctor. After the 100-kilometer race, they gave me an anti-doping control, she reviewed the results of the analysis and told me that I had the white blood cell level of a person with a serious hematological disease, of a person with leukemia. I got goose bumps. I am passionate about ultradistance, it is where I feel the most things, but I am aware that
it’s insane. The tute for the body at an organic level, not only at the muscular level, is exaggerated, “he acknowledges.
and nobody better than him to open the debate. Castanyer, 48, was a mountain runner before trail running, the roommate of a
He was a teenager, he was champion of the World Cup in 2010 among other successes and now through experience he observes the boom of long distances with concern: «Before running 100 kilometers was already a lot, now if you don’t do 170 kilometers you are nobody. He has lost respect for distance and that is not good. In the last decade, fans who challenge routes far beyond the marathon, who travel hundreds of kilometers by bicycle or who complete the audacity of an Ironman have multiplied and their fervor has forced doctors and researchers to address a question: Where is it? the border between the healthy and the unhealthy?
“The nervous system and the brain slow down”
The limit will always depend on the physical state of each one, but curiously all the experts questioned answered that, although the athlete is in top shape, even if he is very prepared for the effort, there is a moment when yes or yes he begins to punish himself: when he overcomes the 10 or 12 hours of continuous effort, that is, more or less when night falls. «From that moment on the body begins to collapse. Although hydration and nutrition have been perfect throughout the race, the nervous system and brain slow down, there is a significant drop in the immune system … And that continues for days. For example, after a test of this type, it is normal for the athlete to drop things from their hands or catch a good cold, “he explains.
Pedro Luis Valenzuela
, a researcher at the Department of Systems Biology at the University of Alcalá (UAH), who a few years ago carried out an interesting study in this regard. The amateur cyclist
He had proposed to travel more than 500 kilometers around Azuqueca for a charitable cause and he decided to accompany him in the pre, during and post to analyze the effects of the beating. “I had scheduled the last test 72 hours after the challenge because I believed that the improvement would be considerable, but the nervous system, for example, was still very fatigued. It was pending for me to study how he recovered a week or a month later to know if the effects are more lasting than we think, “says Valenzuela and names the great fear of lovers of ultra-distance every time he asks whether what they do is harmful: atrial fibrillation. For years, studies and more studies conclude and contradict themselves on whether prolonged sport can damage the heart and, although the controversy is constant, there is evidence that everyone admits: it increases the risk of an arrhythmia called that, atrial fibrillation. Ultra runners, long-distance cyclists or Ironmans triathletes can suffer from excessive growth of the atria – especially the left atrium – and this can make the heart pump go crazy with the consequent danger.
“Body protectors are enough”
“There are cases, but we are talking about athletes with many years of very intense exercise behind them. The incidence is low. A single ultramarathon or a similar effort fatigue the heart, can cause edema, but then it recovers. In most cases, the body’s protective mechanisms, such as fatigue or overtraining, are sufficient to avoid these extreme risks, “he explains.
, professor at the European University of Madrid (UEM), who together with other researchers such as doctor
, head of the Cardiology Service of the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport (AEPSAD), have analyzed this ailment through data from thousands of athletes. For them, atrial fibrillation is a control threat in professional endurance athletes, but only a few amateurs are exposed. “It is true that there is a boom in ultra-distance and that there may be those who are exercising more, but there are still millions of people who exercise less. For me, that’s the real danger. All in all, the benefits of the exercise will always be well above its losses, “concludes Lucía, thus solving the question opened by Castanyer. According to experts, the border between healthy and unhealthy exists. After 10 or 12 hours of continuous exercise, temporary damage to the brain and nervous system occurs and even the heart can be affected forever. But very few make it there.
