The Inspiration Issue

Inspiration is everywhere. Sometimes it strikes out of a clear blue sky and sometimes we need to go looking for it, though for us as cyclists and fans of cycling, it is never too far away. We’re spoiled for choice for inspirational stories in cycling, as Rouleur 113 demonstrates. The heroes and heroines of road cycling, such as Lorena Wiebes and Jai Hindley, are inspiring in the way they have fought for and found success. But we also find inspiration in the landscapes and great climbs of cycling, such as Mont Ventoux. Rouleur 113 will make you want to ride and to engage more with our sport, and isn’t that inspiring in itself?


Interview: Being Jai Hindley

Rouleur catches up with the Giro d’Italia champion, who rode imperiously to win the first grand tour of the 2022 season for an exclusive interview. The Australian comes across as an ordinary guy, doing extraordinary things, and always approaches life with an optimistic, happy-go-lucky attitude which will stand him in good stead for even bigger ambitions further down the road.


Winning for Fun: Lorena Wiebes interview

The Dutchwoman is the best sprinter in the world and is winning bunch finishes well ahead of her rivals. One of her results streaks this spring read: 1-1-1-1-85-1-1, and she crashed for the 85th. We interviewed her at the Women’s Tour, and were given privileged access to her DSM team’s briefing to find out exactly how she constructs her victories.


2012 and all that

We look back at Bradley Wiggins’ extraordinary 2012 season, during which he won Paris-Nice, the Tour of Romandy, the Critérium du Dauphiné, the Tour de France and an Olympic time trial gold medal.


Mother Courage

For female professional cyclists, having a child would once have meant the end of their career. But times are changing, and the sport is modernising for the better. Rouleur speaks with some of the women who are at the forefront of a new and more enlightened era for cycling.


Mont Ventoux: Eternal Icon 

Why does the Giant of Provence exert such a hold on cyclists everywhere? We look at one of cycling’s toughest and most legendary climbs, whose atmosphere and presence are unique. 


Art Cycle: From Cubism to Tubism with Fernand Léger

Part one of an occasional series in which we explore the links between cycling and some of the great works of art. 


The Hardest Stage

Rouleur rides the hardest stage ever included in the Tour de France, a 326km route used annually between 1919 and 1924. The stage start was in Bayonne, on the Atlantic coast in the far south west of France, and took riders hundreds of kilometres across the Basque Country before the gruesome finale: the Col d’Aubisque, Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aspin and Col de Peyresourde before finishing in Bagnères-de-Luchon.
