5.0 out of 5 stars Behind the sports news headlines, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cycling Anthology: Volume 3 (Paperback)
Cycling magazines can be addictive for two-wheeled enthusiasts who spend too much time on trains. But the glossies have a habit of reheating old features or concentrating too much on reviews of their advertisers' products.

The Cycling Anthology series is the perfect antidote. Writers are given free rein to push beyond easy cliches or formulaic sports reportage. The essays give you fresh perspectives on pro cycling racing and reveal new layers of intrigue to a sport now adjusting to big-time exposure in the UK.

And the publishers are independent, too. Well worth supporting, Chapeau!

This review is from: The Cycling Anthology: Volume 3 (Paperback)
It's strange how some of these authors (editors in this case) contribute to cycling magazines that put lad's magazines to shame. I'm thinking of rubbish like Cycle Sport. But on the other hand, they can turn their hand to creating anthologies that work: this is the third in a series of collections of short articles by people who regularly write about cycling (Ellis' mates I guess). I hope they publish more because I really look forward to sitting in my garden here in Chiang Mai with a nice ice-cold diablo verte reading volume 4 in the series. Keep 'em coming Mr Bacon. One rasher every 6 months is not enough!
