Follow the money: Team name and roster changes for 2015

21 Oct 2014

Well, this is nearly it. The 2014 pro cycling season has burned down to a few scattered embers, the Northern Hemisphere cyclocross season has started, and most of the pro road-peloton is off enjoying a few of life’s pleasures, guilt free.

14 Oct 2014

Cycling’s perennial bugbear – doping – has reared its head again, with highly visible EPO positives to the Iglinskiy brothers, the rather limp response from their Astana team, and the evident toothlessness of the MPCC group which claims to safeguard clean cycling.

18 Sep 2014

The Grand Tours have finished for 2014 and we’re on the downhill run to the season’s finish. This week, as I soft-pedalled my way through the ennui that accompanied this depressing realisation, a thought struck me: if you could pick a dream team of nine riders based on their performances in Grand Tours this year, […]

Gritty thrills aplenty at the Vuelta

Gritty thrills aplenty at the Vuelta

9 Sep 2014

It seems like it happens every year. The Vuelta a Espana shows up as the whole cycling world is staggering out of its post-Tour de France comedown, slightly tattered and battered and swearing that next time it won’t get so carried away. Suddenly the Vuelta arrives like a tour bus full of university students on […]
