  3. Monumental finishes: Milan–Sanremo

    Text: | Datum:

    To launch our Monumental Competition, we take a look back at some classic Milan–Sanremo finishes. You can enter the competition to win Rapha prizes and a signed Sir Bradley Wiggins World Champion Wool Jersey here »

    For a so-called sprinters’ classic, Milan – Sanremo’s finishes are a spectacle of tension and turbulence, not just repeat screenings of a cycling stampede. Granted, the races first five or so hours rarely deserve rapt attention, but once the race reaches the Mediterranean and turns west, it becomes fraught, tactical, and volatile.

    Text: | Fotografie: George Marshall | Datum:

    For Bradley Wiggins’ last-ever Paris-Nice, Rapha have designed an official Team Sky, custom-made warm up kit. Inspired by the peloton style the 1960s and ’70s, and decorated with the world championship stripes that he won last season, it will have a more classic look and feel than the more ordinary team tracksuits, but still using merino wool and race-cut tailoring.

  5. Double Stannards

    Text: | Datum:

    Standing in the middle of a media scrum after Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, a noticeably aggrieved Patrick Lefevere, manager of Etixx-Quick Step, complained that the day’s winner, Ian Stannard (Sky), had sat in the race’s “box seat” for over 30km – the implication being that Stannard only enjoyed the show, and hadn’t played a starring role. Lefevere’s lament doesn’t do justice to the Essex boy’s shrewd racing and raw power – nor does it acknowledge that even if Stannard had the box seat, it was Lefevere’s riders who booked his tickets, showed him to that seat, and all but paid his bar tab, too.

  7. Comfortably Numb – Lindsay Knight on winter riding

    Text: Lindsay Knight | Datum:

    ‘Winter riding’ can mean a great many things depending on your locale and your level of stubbornness. For those in pleasant, sunny environments, I’ve recently discovered that riders consider wind jackets to be cold weather apparel… and yes, I’m calling you out on that Ms. Kelton Wright. For those of us that live in far less welcoming climates, the months between November and March (and sometimes April…or even May) mean one of two things: a mind-numbing number of hours on a trainer, or a physically numbing number of hours on the road.
