Issue 107 – Innovators
Cycling and innovation are inextricably linked. While the ultimate utilitarian mode of transport remains recognisably the same machine Victorians would take on the road, the racing bike in its many forms has evolved immeasurably in recent decades. And those who ride them have replaced tradition and superstition with considered training methods and revolutionary thinking.
Rouleur celebrates the appliance of science, whether cutting-edge machines from the finest bike-makers in the world, equipment and kit manufacturers pushing the envelope in design, or riders with radical approaches to going faster, and being better.
Fausto Pinarello, the legendary name behind the world-famous brand; INEOS Grenadiers, taking the cycling world by storm since Team Sky’s formation in 2010; Supersapiens, 21st century glucose-monitoring for pros and amateurs alike, as used by diabetic-only Team Novo Nordisk; Michael Woods, the carbon-neutral racer from Canada putting his money where his mouth is; Shimano and the powermeter revolution; The only woman ever to race the men’s Giro d’Italia; Buying a Giant bike in China and riding it home... to the UK.
Plus Santini, Cipollini, Ribble, HJC, and regular columnists Orla Chennaoui and Ned Boulting.
