Cycling Databases on the web

Many databases originate from the Netherlands and Belgium

Procyclingstats.com

Probably the best one out there. Provides startlists.

CQranking.com

For some races they end with top 30. Popular among the Pro cyclists.

UCI / infostrada

Official results, but very slow. Don’t use it unless you want to check the official results. Also contains other cycling disciplines.

cyclingdatabase.com

Also a nice database, long history. Contains CX results

Nieuwsblad.be (Language: Dutch)

Not well indexed by google, but useful if you read Dutch. It contains rider bio’s and newsitems for the riders. Navigation is poor

wielerland.nl

Was a good source if you wanted the results fast. But is now only available for a small fee.

cyclingfever.com

Great source. One of the two who provides startlists. Procyclingstats.com has more startlists, but cyclingfever may be a bit more accurate on the bigger races

cyclingarchives.com / dewielersite.net / siteduciclisme.net etc..

Results below top 30 available but not always indexed in the database. The images of the cyclists at the older teams is the coolest feature here. It has some news indexed to the cyclists. The website needs a makeover.

wvcycling.com (dutch)

Also has cyclo-cross results and a transfer database

cyclingquotes.com (english)

Complete results for all UCI races, but not a long history

Cyclingnews.com

Not a database, but the best source if you want to look up a race.
The results are complete, including mountain top finishes etcetera. For most races there is a race report. History starts in 1995.
Unfortunately they stopped with the .2 races since 2009

Their archive reads like a book

cyclebase.nl

Dutch. Some functions are only available for members, haven’t tried that

Cyclingbase

Dutch. Blogs facts and figures on current races

Climbs stats

A database with the fastest climbs including calculations by @ammattipyoraily
