Tour of Flanders or Paris-Roubaix. You want both? Well ok! Introducing perhaps our toughest Big Ride ever, a hybrid monster that traverses the bergs of Belgium via the cobbles of northern France to finish on the velodrome at Roubaix. It’s beauty and beast, and worth the ticket price alone. But there’s more. Because this month we had an exclusive sit down with Vincenzo Nibali; we rode coast to coast across Italy in Chase the Sun Italia; took a behind the scenes peek at everyone’s favourite wheel makers, Mavic; and sought expert training advice for how to take on Britain’s hardest sportive, the Fred Whitton.
Bikes this month come from Scott, whose all-new Foil is perhaps the fastest road bike Scott has ever made, plus the S5 from Cervélo, which is perhaps the fastest road bike Cervélo has ever made. Then there’s the Orro Venturi plus a deep-dive into Sram’s latest generation Force AXS groupset, a tonne of new kit, a Q&A with ultra-cyclist Emily Chappell, a Classic Climb up Mount Cenis in France, why suspension on gravel bikes is dumb… the list just goes on. Happy reading then happy riding!
