    The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: New Blood from Rouleur 20.4

    The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: New Blood from Rouleur 20.4

    Doping has sadly become a perennial issue in cycling. Every year there’s a new drug, a new disgrace and a series of articles on websites where we all persuade ourselves that this will be the last time this happens. 


    Let’s be clear. Cycling is far cleaner than it once was. Despite the non-endemic media’s perception of bike racing as a kind of endurance version of WWE wrestling, the vast majority of riders and racers wouldn’t know where to begin doping. But that doesn’t mean they don’t wonder how it feels. Everybody who has found themselves in the gruppetto all week, only to see the same guys ride away from them three weeks later, has marvelled at how form can change that fast. We’ve all asked ourselves what it is like to not get tired, to always be the hammer and never the nail. Does it feel like every day on the bike is your best day? Or a little bit superhuman? Or like you’ve had too much coffee? 


    What does doping feel like? After decades of racing in the bunch, a top amateur racer satisfies his curiosity in a clinical trial and discovered that it’s not what you put into your body, but what you get out, that matters.

    Rouleur Conversations: Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, Ben Tulett and skateboarding ducks at the Giro

    Rouleur Conversations: Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, Ben Tulett and skateboarding ducks at the Giro

    Two Grand Tour legends - Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso - have launched their own bike brand, inspired they say by their decades of experience in the pro peloton. They join presenter Ian Parkinson, along with 19-year old Alpecin-Fenix rider Ben Tulett, fresh from a very creditable performance over the 260 punishing kilometres of Liège-Bastogne-Liège. The Giro'Italia is already proving as unpredictable as every other race this season, although the early stages were dominated by discussions about EF Pro Cycling's radical new kit, a collaboration with the skateboard brand Palace. Rouleur's head of Desire Stuart Clapp, himself recovering from an age-inappropriate skateboard accident, thinks it's a work of genius.

    The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: Learning to Fly from Rouleur 20.6

    The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: Learning to Fly from Rouleur 20.6

    "I didn’t want a Stone Age ecosystem, a ready-meal career path. I wasn’t for UCAS statements, study placements, three-year degrees and guessing how to succeed.


    I needed anarchy. A world with a clear winner: always the strongest, the smartest, finishing first. Throw away the protocols, policies, processes… no thanks to 9am and waiting for the clock to strike five.


    I craved a wave of noise, colour and zeal. Klaxons, chaos and bup, bup, beeeep. Moments to unfurl on a team car bonnet, opportunities to be hurled like live grenades: forward and back until they explode.


    I wanted to be riding, or lying down,
    Lying down, or sitting up,
    Sitting up, or eating up,
    Anything else
    Was wrong.


    This awe-inspiring, time-consuming wave is cycling. I wanted to ride that wave, to achieve perfection.
    I wanted to be a professional cyclist."


    Not just any cyclist either, but the second coming of Sean Kelly. It didn't go quite as Daniel Stewart had hoped. In our latest issue's longread, the Irishman reflects on his turbulent time in the ratrace.


    The Rouleur Longreads Podcast brings you selected long form articles from the magazine, especially recorded for Rouleur. Don’t stop what you’re doing – do it while listening to the world’s best cycling writing.

    Rouleur Conversations - Issue 20.6

    Rouleur Conversations - Issue 20.6

    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.

    Rouleur Conversations - The Tour Heads for Paris

    Rouleur Conversations - The Tour Heads for Paris

    The Rouleur crew have torn themselves away from the television briefly to discuss a fascinating opening week of the Tour.
    Can Primož Roglič go all the way to Paris, assuming the race does... Is Marc Hirschi's stupendous stage 9 descent into Laruns one of the best cycling moments we have ever witnessed? And is Sam Bennett a big crybaby or a lovely, lovely guy? (We know the answer, don't @ us)
    And Stu even manages to shoehorn Heinrich Haussler into the conversation, cycling's longest running bromance.
