Ned Boulting

In the heady days of 2017, Ned, to his surprise, found that road cycling lacked its own dedicated equivalent to the annual Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. Enter: The Road Book, the annual Cycling Almanack. Ned edits our iconic Red Series, and regularly contributes to our ‘retro’ Blue Series.

He has been an integral part of ITV’s Tour de France coverage since 2003, cementing his place within the cycling world as a respected reporter, presenter and writer. Ned’s portfolio of work is vast and varied, alongside the Tour, annual credit includes coverage of the Tour of Britain and Vuelta a España.
