    2023 highlight

    Mark Cavendish

    In 2023 the day after his 38th birthday, Mark Cavendish announced his retirement. Still winless going into the final week of the Giro, Cavendish had one final chance of maintaining his record of never having left the Giro without a win.

    In 2023's edition of The Road Book, Cavendish recounts this exhilarating final stage in his own words and reflects on an especially poignant season.

    2023 Editor

    Ned Boulting

    "2023 was a year of rapid change. Events piled upon events as in a game of whist; ever better cards falling on top of others, the next one trumping the last in an excess of superlatives. Nothing stayed still for long. At times it was dizzying.

    And what did we glean from what we saw? We learned that suddenly the tiniest of gaps can become a chasm. Once the breach has been made, however slight, it takes no more than a little continued pressure for everything to fall apart at once, and at a violent pace. We are left wondering how it ever held together for so long, witnesses to the speed at which things unravel, understanding with new clarity that perhaps it was always going to collapse. We just didn’t see it coming."

    I have all 6 editions

    If you are an avid cycling historian and nerd this almanac has filled a gap that has been waiting to be filled for a century. It's a massive edition and will take a year ti absorb. One complaint is that the font size makes it hard to read, but i understand why it has to be tiny. Perhaps all subscribers should also receive a magnifying glass.
