Taylor Phinney suffered a career threatening crash during the USA national championships earlier this year. As he lay on the ground, screaming in pain, he was questioning whether or not he would make it back to the pro peloton. His scars are horrific, but his story and drive to return is inspirational. We want to see him back winning bike races, you will too after reading this.

What was behind the French resurgence at this year’s Tour? Ag2r were instrumental in shaping this year’s race, we followed them for a day to find out how they did it, and whether or not that can keep pushing forwards. Equally, we wanted to know why Sky fell apart after losing their leader Chris Froome; was it just bad luck and morale, or are there problems that run deeper?

Also in this month’s magazine we go on the post-Tour crit merry-go-round with Koen de Kort, visit the beautiful Artic Race for Thor’s final farewell, speak with Eusebio Unzue about Movistar’s past and present, take a trip down memory lane with Barry Hoban and speak to Adam Blythe and Marianne Vos.
