Issue 108 – The Interview Issue

As the saying goes, the moment you stop asking questions is the moment you stop learning.

This is our special interview issue, dedicated to intelligent queries, extraordinary athletes and tremendous figures from the world of cycling and what makes them tick, going far beyond surface level.

Retiring legend Anna van der Breggen reflects on her decorated career, why she decided to stop racing and looks to her exciting future as a team manager, photographed exclusively in a London studio.

Has he ever ridden a unicycle? Is he going to win a Grand Tour? What’s his longest hangover ride? Versatile super-talent Tom Pidcock answers questions from Rouleur readers. We show colourful characters from the Giro d’Italia caravan, from stage winner Alberto Bettiol to PCR testers, folk dancers and fans. 

Former world champion Mads Pedersen takes us into his world, shoe-makers Sidi show their sole-ful side, we meet poet, Rapha ambassador and mental health advocate Duke A and a pioneering French LGBTQ+ cycling club in this varied and eye-catching 164-page edition.

Anna van der Breggen: Dutch dynamite

A prolific winner of every high-profile race going and an intelligent spokesperson for women’s cycling, Van der Breggen reflects on her decorated career – the highpoints, difficult moments, greatest rivals and regrets – and looks to her exciting future as a team manager.

Faces of the Giro d’Italia

Bike races are about a lot more than those in Lycra. During three weeks in Italy, David Powell photographed this dazzling, diverse travelling circus – mountain folk dancers, police marshals, team bus drivers, funny fans and a rider or two – and got their stories.

Readers’ questions with Ask Tom

It’s question time with Tom Pidcock - and Rouleur readers and cycling fans are the ones asking. After a flying first year in the pro road ranks with big crashes, Classics breakthroughs and an Olympic gold medal, there’s a lot for this Ineos Grenadier to talk about.

Les Derailleurs: shifting attitudes

They’ve been going for 25 years. We join this pioneering French LGTBQ+ cycling club on their anniversary ride and see how they’ve helped to change attitudes.
