Talk about great timing…. Frequently imitated, always on the ball, Cycle Sport has excelled itself this month.
Was the editorial team plugged into a crystal ball? or did they just get lucky?
Either way, the current issue of the magazine ? on sale now ? features the hottest men of the moment.
Cover star David Millar has been in the thick of the action, playing a huge role in Slipstream?s team time trial stage win at the Giro d?Italia and then seeing victory slip through his fingers when his chain broke on stage five.
Cycle Sport also featured an exclusive interview with the outspoken Mark Cavendish ? who went on to win his first grand tour stage on Tuesday.
And just to prove it wasn?t all about national bias, we went training in Italy with Quick Step’s Giovanni Visconti to speak to him about his favourite rides and his billing as the natural successor to Paolo Bettini.
Well, strike us down with a feather if the young Italian didn?t go and pull on the maglia rosa yesterday.
So, if you want to know who?s going to excel in the Tour de France, make sure you pick up the informative, insightful, thought-provoking Cycle Sport guide next month.
We can guarantee the cover star will either win a stage? or suffer a calamitous mechanical error at the crucial moment!
The June issue of Cycle Sport is in all good newsagents now. The bumper Tour de France guide will be out in early June.
