AI is getting 'mega trendy' these days, as the kids say, so what better way to announce your Tour of Flanders team than getting AI to design a poster for you? That's what Ineos Grenadiers did, and we reckon it's pretty good in a sort of dodgy impressionist way. It definitely captures something of the vintage aesthetic, so well done AI, whoever you are (these modern creatives who only use their initials, eh?).

One job AI can't do is pro bike racing (famous last words?), and even if it could, one rider who'd be less worried than most is Elisa Balsamo as she now has something to fall back on. She has just completed a degree in modern literature and wrote a thesis titled 'Languages and Variants of Giovanni Testori's book Il dio di Roserio'. Come and have a go if you think you're clever enough, AI.

After cutting his teeth on local and national newspapers, James began at Cycling Weekly as a sub-editor in 2000 when the current office was literally all fields. 

Eventually becoming chief sub-editor, in 2016 he switched to the job of full-time writer, and covers news, racing and features.

A lifelong cyclist and cycling fan, James's racing days (and most of his fitness) are now behind him. But he still rides regularly, both on the road and on the gravelly stuff.
