  • Kristoff: Boasson Hagen and I will work as one unit at Worlds

    One of the most talked about incidents after last year's elite men's road race at the UCI Road World Championships in Doha was the lack of tactical collaboration between Norwegians Edvald Boasson Hagen and Alexander Kristoff.

    As Peter Sagan raised his hands in victory in the Qatari desert, the Norwegian contenders cut forlorn figures in sixth and seventh place, after failing to work together.

    This time around, with the Worlds taking place on home soil, Norway expects a better performance, if not a result. The Bergen course arguably suits Boasson Hagen more than Kristoff, with the punchy climbs set to wear down the peloton as they race close to 280 kilometres.

    Kristoff, a winner in both Milan-San Remo and the Tour of Flanders, is no stranger in triumphing in long-distance events but he comes into this year's race as many experts' second pick for leadership within the Norwegian camp.

    "For sure I know the plan, and for sure I think that it's a good plan. It's going to work fine," he told Cyclingnews earlier this week.

    "I don't think it's a good idea to share the tactic with the media, so no hints," the European road champion added with a hint of a smile.

Operation Spartan

Shielding Vulnerable Road Users

Although many of you will have kept logging the miles through the winter months, the turn of spring usually sees more cyclists getting out and enjoying the roads of North Yorkshire, and we want to make sure everyone stays safe.

Our partners, North Yorkshire Police, have launched an operation which seeks to identify vulnerable road users. Through a mixture of education and enforcement, Op Spartan aims to improve the attitudes of those who use our roads and increase the level of safety for all.

Spartan is a force-wide operation where officers and the public are encouraged to submit intelligence regarding instances of anti-social use of vehicles or poor driving. A profile of information will be collated for the police to assess and act upon, to ensure guidance and advice can be provided to those who need it.

Op Spartan is inviting the public to submit details of instances of dangerous or anti-social driving they have witnessed via the driving concern form below.The driving concern form captures the details of the incident and requests information such as vehicle number plate, so police can carry out the relevant checks and follow up with engagement or enforcement if required.

Driving concern report form

The Major Collision Investigation Team will collate the information and then take the appropriate course of action. This may be the registered owner of the vehicle is contacted by letter to suggest that their driving behaviour be amended to avert possible future collisions. More serious reports may involve a personal visit by a traffic officer and could ultimately result in prosecution
