  1. How to be a road cycling fan.

    The average football fan spends their time roughly equally split between unhappiness (because their team lost), happiness (because their team won) or indifference (because their team drew), thatís an oversimplification but bear with me. If you took this attitude to cycling and picked a protour team to support you would spend an inordinate amount of your time being unhappy, even if you supported Sky. New and old British fans assembled to watch the menís road race on Sunday with the expectation of ...

  2. Lance analysis.

    The last few months have been pleasantly doping-news-free since Contador got sentenced and frankly I was quite enjoying watching the sport on TV in an innocent way. It's a way to which I am not accustomed but it was fun nevertheless, it was a simpler, better time...

    Anyway, thats all gone for now and whether we like it or not doping (and Lance Armstrong) are going to be in the news again for a good long while. There is no choice about it, it's all happening again.

    Those ...

  4. Alan Rosner

    Alan Rosner was an eastern region institution and a very hard working volunteer of cycling who is going to leave a big hole in his place. He died suddenly a few days ago after a short battle with a very aggressive cancer.

    In 2007 Alan put on the first Dengie Marshes Tour (or rather he resurrected it), he started with a simple National B on a circuit with the aim of improving it year on year, which he did. This year it was a premier calendar on a route that must have been logistically ...

  5. Blood blood blood

    I never told anyone about the final stage of Hellas, I spent it in the second following car chatting to our Greek Masseur Gregori. Heís a top guy and bought me a beer and a Souvlaki the night before to commiserate on my abandon. Since Davide was only a few seconds behind the leader on GC the team decided it was worth trying to do something even though there were no major climbs.
