Issue 119, where to begin? Well let’s start with our profile, which features not one but two Backstedts, Magnus and his hugely talented daughter Elynor, the pair talking candidly about the hardships of Paris-Roubaix and what it takes to win a cobble. This month’s Big Ride is a gravel adventure in Dublin, so expect the greenest mountains and blackest pints; a reflective Marcus Leach dispatches his last leg of our JOGLE: the Scenic Route series; and Classic Climbs stars the fabled Madonna del Ghisallo, so good it gets its own cycling church at the top. Review bikes come thick and fast from Merida, BMC and Ribble’s groundbreaking new aero ride, then to top it all off we dish the dirt on Ineos Grenediers’ weapon of choice, the latest Pinarello Dogma F. Oh yes, and we also show you the one single gym move to rule them all. Faster, stronger and even better informed? That’ll be Cyclist issue 119.
