I FREAKIN’ LOVE PODCASTS. I love that I can listen to them when and where I want – riding my bike, driving my car, or just before I switch off the side light next to my bed. // I’VE LISTENED TO ALL MANNER OF SUBJECTS: INSPIRING RAGS-TO-RICHES STORIES, BUSINESS SUCCESS INTERVIEWS, THE SECRET CURE FOR BUNIONS (AND I DON’T EVEN SUFFER FROM THEM!), and how hormonal changes affect women during pregnancy. This last one impressed my wife no end. I GET DRAWN INTO THIS EPISODIC CONVERSATIONAL WORLD EVERY TIME I GET INTO MY CAR – AND THE SUPPLY OF SUBJECTS AND CONVERSATIONS IS SO VAST, I’LL NEVER RUN OUT OF THINGS TO LISTEN TO. // In the last four years, the number of people listening to podcasts has doubled; and many of…

the thing that changed it all

I really got into mountain biking in 2009, and started pushing myself to see how far I could take it. I reached a point where I was putting on a full-face helmet and body armour to learn how to do bigger drops and jumps – and I was stressing myself out. Then a few friends introduced me to bikepacking. It was a way for me to ride my bike off-road, in the woods, and be out for a whole weekend, without scaring myself. It alleviated my stress rather than adding to it. Now I lead a women’s bikepacking group. I love the immersive experience of bailing out of town as early as I can on a Friday, and not getting back to my car until late Sunday afternoon. Riding at…

this team is gonna break road racing (thank god!)

The break is not getting caught. When the five of them get to the finish, the sprint will probably go to 29-year-old Justin Williams – a muscular, multiple-time national criterium and track champion. The other riders in the break know this. They’re planning on keying off Justin when the sprint starts. So Justin does what nobody expects: he attacks. He surprises even his friend and teammate in the breakaway, 22-year-old Dante Young. While Dante drips with talent, he lacks the experience of the riders around him, so when the break chases and then catches Justin, he’s unsure how to respond. The bell rings, signalling the final lap. The riders all look at each other and gulp air, and as they do, a single rider goes off the front. Dante knows enough…

4 facts about cncpt’s custom cannondale caad12

1 Cannondale marketing director James Lalonde selected the brand’s aluminium race frame for the team because they specialise in criteriums. “It’s just one of those bikes where if you do happen to put it down in a corner, which you’re more likely to do in a crit because you’re racing closer together, it’s more likely that you can pick it up and ride it again the next day,” he says. 2 The paint scheme was a collaboration between Bobby Endo and Cannondale designer Ryan Chung. The pebble graphic is a nod to the Nike Air Safari sneaker. The muted black and grey paint is inspired by the ‘murdered-out’ Mercedes and Land Rovers on Bobby’s mood boards, says Chung. Subtle green accents are a Cannondale touch. 3 There’s an Easter egg on the…
