The week in review

28th September to 4th October

UCI, cycling's world governing body, has done a great job in rescheduling the calendar after missing a big part of the regular season. This year's Tour de France can certainly be regarded as a major success. Last Sunday, Slovenian Tadej Pogačar rode into Paris as the youngest person to win TDF since the inception of the yellow jersey. In the tour's history, Pogačar became the second youngest winner. This was after a dramatic day of time trials on the Saturday before the final stage where the Pogačar claimed the yellow jersey for the first time on the tour. This weekend UCI is concluding the Road World Championships in the region around Imola, Italy. Next Sunday is the start of the Giro d'Italia, a tour that normally precedes TDF. The Wanda Diamond League started this season with the first meeting where athletes performed remotely around the world. It ended last night in Doha with a full meeting attended by many star athletes. This is also a great achievement by World Athletics. Next Sunday London will welcome thousands of runners for the rescheduled London Marathon, normally featuring in April. 

On Sunday we see the start of the final Grand Slam event for the year. Roland-Garros will also allow fans to attend, but the numbers are limited. The Professional Squash Association World Tour made a return in Manchester recently. From Monday until Saturday Cairo will be host to the PSA World Tour Finals. Looking ahead to October, Six Nations fans will be looking forward to the completion of the tournament for this year. Matches will take place on the final two weekends of October. We also have further European football internationals. For the mountain bike enthusiasts, there is the UCI MTB World Championships that on this occasion also includes the MTB Marathon World Championships and MTB e-Bike World Championships. World Rugby finds itself in a difficult position with the brief arrest of Bernard Laporte over claims of corruption. The arrest is not related to World Rugby, but Bernard Laporte is the deputy chairman of the organisation. We will see how the situation develops.

Until next time, have a great sporting week!
