Sean Hardy is an independent photographer and film-maker based in London. Having started out by taking a camera along to a local cyclocross race to figure out how to photograph these types of events, Sean progressed quickly to shooting some of the biggest races in the world for teams such as Ineos Grenadiers.

James got his start in cycling, both as a racer and photographer, while getting a Masters degree in Art history at Indiana University in the 1980’s. Since moving to France in 1992 he has collaborated with top cycling publications like Vélo Magazine and L’Equipe in France, Bicycling Magazine, Peloton Magazine and VeloNews in the U.S. as well as major publications such as Vanity Fair on an international level.
Startt’s cycling photography has been widely exhibited throughout his career, and he was awarded the gold medal in the 2021 World Sports Photography Awards. Joining Rouleur in 2022, James covers both the competitive side of the sport, along with its history and culture, with both words and images.
Antonio Colombo balances between the worlds of art, design, industry and culture, having run Cinelli for the past four decades and Columbus tubing before that. It’s fair to say Colombo exists at the epicentre of the Italian bicycle industry, but as a life-long fan of art and design, he also runs his own gallery “Antonio Colmbo Arte Contemporanea” in Milan, specialising in contemporary works of young Italian artists.
Colombo’s ability to connect the worlds of art and bicycle design is perhaps best exemplified by his unique friendship with American pop artist Keith Haring. After meeting art gallery in the early 1980s they produced a one-off Cinelli Laser pursuit bike in 1989 with iconic matching disc wheels, custom-painted by Haring.
