Cyclist Magazine Issue #15$4.95
Do what you love. Love what you do. On the surface it’s a rather simple premise, but how many of us truly live this way – all the time?
Even for professional cyclists, finding the right balance can be something of a battle. Just ask Orica-GreenEdge’s Michael Matthews, for example. He got some big wins out of the way early on in his career, and yet, an element of fun was missing for the young Australian – an element which he now seems to have found. On the opposite end of the scale, Cadel Evans, our first Tour de France winner, cannot seem to remove himself from cycling’s grasp. His appreciation for the sport continues to grow – and he’s still learning, as Rupert Guinness discovers.
Our handy guide to the Tour de France will ensure you have everything you need to take on the grand boucle from the comfort of your living room this July. Given the time of year, we’ll also take you to the magnificent Vercors on our Big Ride. It may prove food for thought while you research your next ride away.
Also in this issue, the journey through some of the roads of Thailand continues; we look at the ins and outs of race hydration; and we go behind the scenes at the home of Enve Wheels in the US. There’s a very good chance that you’ll never look at a wheel the same way again.
Enjoy the ride.
