We are proud to present Rouleur’s centenary issue celebrating 100 editions of the finest cycling magazine in the world.
Our team has compiled, with the help of our lovely discerning readers, the top 100 defining moments in cycling history – the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Memorable wins, racing firsts, game-changing bikes; cycling’s landmarks, quotes and anecdotes, triumphs and tragedies. What will make the cut, and what will be outside the time limit?
There is no art to sprinting, according to our special guest writer, but then he was one of the very best in the business. Marcel Kittel’s guide to the hurly-burly bunch kick and what it takes to win.
Timm Kölln’s masterful black and white peloton portraits, taken immediately after riders crossed the finish line at the Tour de France, were first published by Rouleur a decade ago. Timm returns to the races to update the likes of Mark Cavendish, Tony Martin, Heinrich Haussler and Peter Sagan. Fascinating work, as ever with Herr Kölln.
American sensation Chloé Dygert set the Worlds alight in Harrogate, 2019, then crashed horrifically in 2020. A fascinating interview with the young talent with an unusual worldview.
Plus Tour de France racers let loose with cameras, bike racing’s environmental impact, Desire in the studio, columnists Orla Chennaoui, Ned Boulting, Philippa York and Romain Bardet, and much more.
In Rouleur Desire, we've got our hands on Specialized's Aethos superbike, Assos's most technical jacket ever, new wheel brand on the block, Ere Research. Plus our Desire Edit, featuring the lastest drops from the kit world.
