Author, broadcaster and Rouleur contributor Matt Rendell joins us during his tour promoting Colombia es Pasion!: The Generation of Racing Cyclists Who Changed Their Nation and the Tour de France.
His feature in our latest issue profiles Sergio Higuita at home in Colombia and his rise from the streets of Medellín to the WorldTour with EF Education-Nippo. It’s quite a story. And another of Matt’s excellent interviewees for Rouleur, Richard Carapaz, is now an Olympic gold medallist. What would the reaction be back home in Ecuador? It’s a complex answer from a fascinating nation.
And Phil Wright reads an extract on Higuita from Straight Outta Medellín, from issue 105, out now.
