    Matt Stephens on the 2023 Tour de France Route

    The route for the 110th edition of the Tour de France was revealed today at the Palais des Congrès in Paris and my simple initial conclusion was this: it’s ‘Climby.’ Ok, that might not actually be a word but I think you get my drift.…

    My Personal Highlights of the 2022 Season by Matt Stephens

    I think it’s fair to say that from whatever perspective you look back upon the 2022 cycling season, the general consensus, distilled into one word, would be along the lines of ‘superb’, ‘outstanding’, ‘historic’  or ‘explosive.’ Whatever one word you would choose to sum up…

    Mads Pedersen’s ŠKODA Green Jersey Triumph

    This has been a very good year for Danish cycling in Grand Tour racing. First, Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) won the Tour de France and now his compatriot, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) has won the ŠKODA green jersey in the Vuelta a España in a rout. If…

    A Few Takeaways from the 2022 Vuelta a España

    I think it’s fair to describe the Vuelta a España as a theater of the unexpected, and this year’s race was more dramatic than usual. But not from a suspense point of view; the green jersey race was all but over after stage 9 and…

    The Amazing Season of Team Jumbo-Visma

    Cycling aficionados tend, much less than, say, football fans, to follow the exploits of individual cyclists, rather than teams. The reason is obvious: Football teams have community followings that don’t end when a fan moves to another city or country. A fan of the Chelsea…
