The season’s first (and arguably, best) Grand Tour kicks off this weekend, but before the cycling world’s attention turns to Italy, we’ve covered a broad spectrum this week. Highlights have included:
Another insightful missive from The Secret Pro.
A moving interview with Michael Drapac on the loss of his son Damion, his philosophy of cycling and life.
Matt de Neef previewed the Giro d’Italia, outlining the stages and riders to watch, while we also considered what the favourites had to say at the pre-Giro press conferences.
Whilst the Giro’s on, the biggest stage race in the USA is on as well; in his latest Weekly Spin column, Neal Rogers looks back at his 14 years covering the race.
There was practical guidance on the benefits of core training for cyclists, in this piece from contributor Paul Argent.
Matthew Beaudin, EF-Education First communications director, offered a lovely reflective piece on finding sanctuary on the bike in the middle of the team’s Spring Classics campaign.
Phil Gaimon rebutted the Velominati Rules.
Matt de Neef took a look at the frightening way that cyclists are dehumanised, and the implications of that on the road.
On the tech front this week, the big news was Shimano’s release of its range of gravel groupsets, while we also reported on Giant’s industry-first frame damage replacement program.
Finally, as always, there was the latest episode of the CyclingTips Podcast and the Bunch video round-up.
So – background reading out of the way, it’s time for the Weekly Quiz. This week, it only seemed right for us to take a look at the Giro d’Italia.
