Details:The roadbook is the professional cyclist’s bible. A dense tome provided by race organisers and chock-full of information on everything from parcours to logistics at that event, riders scan the route to identify their best chance of victory or meticulously study the final kilometres in preparation for an attack. The roadbook for the 2018 Tour de France spanned no less than 240 pages.
The Road Book is an apt name, then, for Ned Boulting’s latest project – a 1,000-page almanack reviewing the cycling season. The first volume will combine reports and results from the men’s and women’s WorldTour through to Premier Calendar and Tour Series events on the British domestic calendar, with statistics and infographics compiled by Cillian Kelly, and a collection of captivating essays from a broad range of writers.
