He’s Julian Alaphilippe, and this month we sat down for an exclusive interview with the peloton’s great entertainer to talk lighting up races and not being able to sit still in school.

Bikes tests come in the shape of Pearson, Vitus and Tifosi, plus we get the skinny on Cannondale’s all new Synapse.
