watts on your mind?

WATTS, THEY’RE A LITTLE LIKE CASH. NUMBERS MOST OF US have to work hard for and not something we want to let go to waste. Simply put, Watts are a measure of how much effort we are putting in when on the bike. A value the vast majority of us want more of, cycling is an aspirational sport – there’s always a hill we want to climb faster, segment time we know we can improve upon or event, goal or challenge to conquer and achieve. Personal improvement and peak performance is something many of us are focussed upon … yep, it’s easy to imagine and decide upon a goal but a lot harder to dedicate ourselves to the time and effort required. Sorry, there’s no getting out of the training and toil. But,…

letters to the editor

TYPE 1 DIABETES AND CYCLING I'm old fashioned in that I used to write letters to the editors of magazines, seems can't do that so much these days, too slow and hand writing – so yesterday! However, I do feel so very compelled to express my deep gratitude for the feature on Type 1 Diabetes. My now 18-year-old daughter has suffered the curse of Type 1 since she was eight. The complications of it are far-reaching; the writer did a pretty good job of giving the readers an overview of its machinations and effects. They go well beyond all that though – the most pressing are the psychological effects, ranging from self-esteem to body image. They can be debilitating at times, which, for us as parents, is heart-breaking. Thank you so much for the article,…

the rise & rise of mathieu van der poel

MATHIEU WHO? At the start of the 2019 season there was only one young rider everyone wanted to talk about – and it wasn’t Mathieu van der Poel. Now to be fair, 19-year-old Belgian prodigy Remco Evenepoel has made a solid start to his pro career with Deceuninck-Quickstep. But his thunder has been well and truly stolen by the 24-year-old Dutchman, Van der Poel, off the back of a breathtaking debut Spring Classics campaign. If you don’t know much about him, you’re certainly not alone. However it comes as no great surprise the baby-faced Van der Poel is proving a rather handy bike rider, for he’s virtual cycling royalty. His older brother David is a former Dutch U23 Cyclo-Cross National Champion. His father Adri was a two-time Tour de France stage winner,…
