Managing Editor Ian Cleverly and columnist Johnny Green join Jack Thurston to discuss the new issue of Rouleur magazine. In a rather chaotic recording session in the dressing room of performance poet John Cooper Clarke, the discussion free-ranges across the Three Peaks cyclocross challenge, the Tour of Britain, Henri Cartier Bresson and Johnny’s musings on revisionist histories and the unfolding revelations about Lance Armstrong.
Rouleur is the highly acclaimed bi-monthly cycling magazine. It brings together leading cycling writers and photographers to convey the essence and imagery of road racing. Rouleur features photography and serious writing celebrating the passion and beauty of the sport and has built a dedicated and valuable following from both discerning cycling fans and the most influential bike riders in the world. The magazine appeals to those who, like us, are passionate about the sport, but don’t want to read bike tests and race reports. Instead, the magazine focuses on exquisite photography and writing that really gets under the skin of the great riders and theatres of road racing.
The Rouleur podcast is brought to you by Mosquito Bikes, London’s custom made bicycle specialists. New in to Mosquito bikes is the full range of Cielo bicycles. Established by headset maestro Chris King they recently began producing frames again after a twenty eight year haitus. Their cyclocross bikes have been purpose built with the same Chris King ‘go anywhere’ attitude making their Cross Racer the perfect bike for attacking the muddy fields of the 2013 cyclocross season.
