  1. Bonkers for Jonker

    Text: Tom Southam | Fotografie: Cor Vos | Datum:

    In what was his last professional race, Jonker took the start at the head of the composite UniSA team as the proverbial underdog. The wily four-time Tour de France finisher wasted no time in making his first move however. Noticing a strong tailwind out of Adelaide, the lanky local attacked as soon as the flag was dropped on the first road stage to Kapunda.

  2. New world racing

    Text: Tom Southam | Fotografie: Beardy McBeard | Datum:

    Unlike its antiquated stage-race siblings in France and Italy the Tour Down Under (TDU) is a very much a new world proposition. The race has never laid claim to being the hardest, the longest, or the toughest on the calendar, instead the South Australian race has become regarded as a palate-tantalising hors d’oeuvre for the cycling season. With a spot on the racing calendar that comes just weeks in to the new season the TDU is a hard race to predict a winner for, something echoed by the fact that no rider has ever managed to defend their title at the race. Local riders do enjoy a strong advantage however, with Australians having won ten of the seventeen editions.

  3. Winning Feeling

    Text: Matthew Beaudin | Fotografie: Emily Maye | Datum:

    At the base of a short climb in Mallorca up to the old church of Sant Salvador, Tiffany Cromwell pauses, leans against an old fence, and begins changing. She eats something and points out how cute the baby lambs are nearby. Cromwell is in the middle of a training ride with the new CANYON//SRAM team and is adding an extra climb. She finds herself in the predicament of needing to be fit early in the season in order to race well at the Australian national road championships [where she won a bronze in the time trial] and Santos Women’s Tour, in mid January, at a time when most other pros don’t mind eating dessert and riding piano.

  4. Anything but lonely: Tiffany Cromwell at the Road Nats

    “C’mon, Tiff,” says Beth Duryea. “You can do this. Podium. Podium. Podium.” Those final three words came out in a steady staccato rhythm. The CANYON//SRAM co-owner and marketing manager Duryea was working as sport director at the Australian National Road Championships. Driving the car behind her team’s only Australian, Tiffany Cromwell, the versatile Duryea provided encouragement and instruction. With four kilometres left in the individual time trial, Cromwell was within reach of a spot on the podium. Having scored a seat in the CANYON//SRAM car to follow Cromwell’s effort, I was wedged in the back next to the team’s mechanic, tools and extra wheels and enjoyed prime position watching her navigate up and down the undulating 29.3km course.

  5. Sixteen For 2016

    Text: Simon Mottram | Datum:

    It’s time once more where, as road riders, we prepare for the approaching season and set goals for the New Year. My goal in 2016 is 50 momentous rides, to celebrate my 50th year. Here at Rapha I encourage all employees to set riding targets, to have one or more things in the crosshairs to help better their riding and racing. Every New Year I also like to look ahead to what Rapha as a company has in its sights; the products we will launch, the events we will host and the places we will travel to. Back in 2008 it was easier, I thought, to compile such a list. I supposed this year it would be much tougher, but it wasn’t. We have some amazing things in store for 2016, from new Cycle Clubs to watching the Tour on Mt. Ventoux. Everyone is, of course, invited to join the ride. From all of us at Rapha, happy New Year and strong riding in 2016.
