David Millar said goodbye to the professional peloton at the Vuelta a Espana earlier this month, but as he said in this exclusive interview, there is little place for sentiment and nostalgia in such a transient community. While sharing a relaxed drink on his hotel terrace we looked back on the Grand Tour that has become the Scot’s favourite race.
While in Spain we caught up with the MTN-Qhubeka team that is doing a great job of proving that winning isn’t everything, even in this day of multi-million pound budgets and marginal gains. If you don’t know what this team is all about, this article might surprise you.
Suisse clothing company Assos also opened their doors for us as we wanted to see how a company can stay at the forefront of cycling – from amateur to pro level – for so many years. Also in the magazine is a picture feature from the Tour of Britain, a look at the future of bike design, the crisis affecting Italian cycling, Jens Voigt‘s epic hour record and more.
