Cyclist Strade Bianche gallery: Pain faces of a dusty spring classic While Strade Bianche isn’t yet a Monument, it is a monumentally good race and this weekend produced two certified Classics, won by two undeniable Greats in Lotte Kopecky and Tadej Pogačar. It also produced a number of pain faces that could almost rival even the National Hill Climb Championships – almost. We sent photographer James York to Tuscany and he captured the day’s greatest gurns from the women’s race and the aftermath of the men’s race.

Cyclist Big Ride: Valley of the Tears in Gran Canaria What the hell is water? This was the question the late American novelist David Foster Wallace posed in 2005 in a commencement speech to the graduating class of Kenyon College, Ohio. For Wallace the rhetorical purpose was not to get the students to consider water per se, but to encourage them to appreciate the extraordinary in the everyday. It’s something I find myself contemplating as I stand under a shower so powerful that it is not only blowing away the cobwebs but exfoliating more than a good few skin cells. A morning shower is something ..read more

Cyclist The complete history of the Cannondale SuperSix Cannondale has been making bikes for more than 50 years and, among the wide range of models it has developed in that time, the SuperSix has proved to be one of its most enduring and popular platforms. Born out of the original SystemSix design that was made in Bedford, Massachusetts in the US, the SuperSix launched in 2008 as Cannondale’s first full-carbon race bike, its design almost entirely about attaining a formidable stiffness-to-weight ratio. ‘The first SuperSix was a crazy, lightweight bike that was oriented entirely around stiffnes ..read more
