To celebrate the publication of Mondial 005 Rapha are hosting three launch events featuring contributors from the new issue.

Mondial Issue 005

In issue 005 of Mondial genetics expert Kat Arney explores what the pioneering science of gene editing might mean for elite sport. We meet Apollonia Poilâne to talk sourdough and politics, while photographer Pelle Crépin pairs Rapha apparel with cutting-edge womenswear in a striking photo-essay. Stateside, we discover how plans to regenerate a famous film landmark have pitted America’s most celebrated living architect against the girl gangs of LA. In fiction, Rigo Zimmerman strikes out in a new direction, and climate-change guru Tim Flannery considers ways to preserve the fragile ecology of the Australian outback. And Richard Lofthouse asks why, decades after the advent of the mass-produced carbon bike, the car industry is only now catching up.
