Daniel Stewart grew up riding his bike on the streets of East Belfast, dreaming of being a pro racer. And his dream came true - even if it wasn't quite what he was expecting.
He tells the story of his mad journey through the pro peloton in Rouleur 20.6 and on this edition of Rouleur Conversations. He joins presenter Ian Parkinson, Executive Editor Ian Cleverly and Paolo Martelli, official photographer of the world's most photogenic sportive - the Eroica series.
Paolo's photo feature in Issue 12.6 inevitably includes shots of his friend the late Luciano Berruti, whose extravagant moustache and goggles made him the face of L'Eroica. They also find time to reflect on a mesmerising Tour De France and a new generation of race winners.
