One of the most heartwarming moments in recent history, and top of our highlights of last season, we got the inside track from the man at the centre of it: Mark Cavendish. Continue reading

What We Have Learnt So Far at The Giro d'Italia 2024

As we nestled in to watch stage 11 of the Giro d’Italia 2024 (this article was written prior to the result of said stage – Ed), a 207km sprinters day along the coast from Foiano di Valfortore to Francavilla al Mare, we realised that the riders have reached the half-way point of this year’s Giro. So we figured it would be the perfect time to look back on the first half of the race, and think about a few things we’ve learned so far.

The Road Book's Amstel Gold Race 2024 Preview

The Road Book's Amstel Gold Race 2024 Preview
The Flemish cobbles have brought much entertainment, even if it was, quite simply, the Mathieu van der Poel show. With those little mean squares of stone now behind the peloton, we move on to the Ardennes Classics with The Amstel Gold Race. The youngest of the classics, born only in 1966, but undeniably one of the most entertaining, the cobbles specialists and sprinters make way for the puncheurs and climbers as we hit the steep slopes which characterise the Ardennes races. Even if this one does take place in the Limburg province of the Netherlands. Continue reading

The Road Book's Milan-Sanremo 2024 Preview

With the brutality of Pogačar’s 80km solo ride at Strade Bianche, and Jumbo Lease-a-Bike’s somewhat alarming domination of not only the Opening Weekend, but also of Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico, 2024’s Spring calendar has already been one for the ages. Whats more, we’ve not even hit the Monuments yet! On Saturday however, that will all change with the 115th edition of Milan-Sanremo, a race which rewards patient watching, and patient riding.

Tirreno-Adriatico 2024: extract from 'Between Roglič and My Heart’s Place' by Brian Nygaard

If Strade Bianche has done nothing but whet your appetite for more racing, then there is Tirreno-Adriatico to look forwards to on Monday the 4th of March.

The ‘Race of the Two Seas’ is a classic in every sense of the word, and Primož Roglič’s decisive victory last year prompted Road Book contributor Brian Nygaard to write a brilliantly eloquent essay on why Tirreno-Adriatico holds a special place in his heart. This extract from ‘Between Roglič and My Heart’s Place’ from The Road Book 2023, beautifully captures the lazy nostalgia of one of Italy’s best loved races.
