Tour de Suisse Stage 8 (110)Overlapping with the Critérium du Dauphiné was the Tour de Suisse and this year we decided to give it a try and it did not fail to disappoint. With the first two days clashing we didn’t get to see the race until stage 4 which saw Ariel Maximiliano Richeze (Etixx-Quick Step) take the stage win with Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) 3rd on the stage to maintain his lead overall, after stage wins on the previous two days. Stage 5 saw the big mountains enter the fray and it was Pierre-Roger Latour (AG2R) who lead from Wilco Kelderman (Lotto Nl – Jumbo) with Geraint Thomas (Sky) sitting in third overall. Read More »

Dauphine Stage 6 (17)Unlike 2015 the Critérium du Dauphiné was not one which saw the lead changing on an almost daily basis, instead it was dominated by two past Tour de France winners and included 4 of the 5 most fancied riders to lift the crown in July. The short mountain prologue time trial proved to be very interesting as Chris Froome (Sky) went early but ended up 3rd overall. Richie Porte (BMC) was in the last group of riders and pipped his former team mate only to find himself behind Alberto Contador (Tinkoff). Those positions stood for the next few days/stages as the sprinters took their chances on the flatter stages before the race moved in to the mountains. Read More »

lyddenhill16 (27)Another cracking weekend down at Lydden Hill as Mattias Ekström took his Audi S1 RX to a third consecutive win. He played the joker lap superb in the semi final and final, when Petter Solberg (Citroën DS3) had looked set to strike back as he went fastest in 3 of the 4 qualifying sessions. Solberg didn’t joker on lap 1 of the final and when he did Ekström had made up enough time to be ahead when Solberg rejoined the gravel, so Solberg was runner up to keep the championship battle close. There was also the threat of Andreas Bakkerud (Ford Focus RS) who faded in the final, so it was Timmy Hansen (Peugeot 208 WRX) who completed the podium, at Lydden. Read More »

Motors TV, the channel dedicated to all this motoring, is to air two of Bespoke Rallies’ recent films on their Sky channel 447 and Virgin Media channel 545.

The first – to be aired on 16 September at 20:30 – will be the story of the 2015 Great Amazon Adventure, a 6,700km drive from Paramaribo in Suriname on the Atlantic to Lima, Peru on the Pacific.

The amazing event includes extraordinary scenes in Brazil, where the event took a ferry for two nights and a day to link two road sections, the incredible Amazon rainforest, dirt roads, breakdowns and repairs. From the rainforest, the crews climbed some of the greatest passes in South America over the Andes mountain range, visiting Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon, home of the great Condor, on their way to Lima. Billed as an event for 4x4s or well-prepared classics, one crew brought along their much loved Lotus Elan – and made it through against the odds. Read More »
