Daniel Teklehaimanot | Pride of Africa

I first spoke with GreenEDGE’s first signing Daniel Teklehaimanot at the Bay Crits in Melbourne a couple months ago. He speaks a little English, but first language is Tigrinya, so it wasn’t as detailed of a conversation as I had hoped. In this feature, European based cycling journalist Gregor Brown speaks to Daniel and various …

Strava – From the Beginning

Thoroughout the past two years I’ve been a keen Strava user and have been watching the company grow at a tremendous rate. I’ve always been interested about their backstory, their business model, and their way forward.

A Ride With Jez Hunt

“I’m not sure what you’re going to write about. I don’t really have anything interesting to say or any stories to tell”. This is how my four hour ride with Jeremy Hunt began just a short while ago while he was back in Melbourne for the off-season.

A Chat With Michael Matthews

Amongst all the recent doom and gloom in cycling I thought we’d focus today on young man with a bright future ahead. I’ve kept a keen eye on Michael Matthews ever since the 2007 Tour of Bright when a bunch of us A-graders were riding full-gas up Mt Hotham and he passed us like we …

Lewis Rattray – Australia’s Cyclocross Pioneer?

In case you missed it, last night the pinnacle of the UCI Cyclocross season was raced with the World Championships in Belgium. I understand that not many Australians follow this too closely, but to the Belgians this is basically their AFL Grand Finals. Can you imagine if there was a fresh young Belgian kicking around …

Where Are They Now – Micheal Wilson

“If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch, if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, if all men count with you, but none too much; if you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, yours is …

Bordeaux – Paris, When Distance Was King

I’ve always been intrigued by these old classic bike races that spanned hundreds of kilometers and the riders motorpaced behind Dernys. Nowadays you see these post-Tour Derny events such as the Antwerp Derny Criterium, but these are just showcase events which are nothing like they were back in the day.
