Cycling iQ’s ‘Italian in Style. Made in Taiwan’ article is featured in the April 2016 edition of Cycle Sport. It’s the first of what I hope will be many feature articles in this legacy publication.
It’s extremely rewarding whenever an article at CyclingiQ.com is received well by readers and respected media platforms. Researching and composing a finished piece is at least equally as satisfying as eventually clicking the ‘Publish’ button.
When I first discovered road cycling as a Uni student 20 years ago, Cycle Sport UK was the first publication I purchased. The names and stories from that era, though completely foreign to me initially, eventually developed a reassuring familiarity that became a great form of escapism: whether it was Bjarne Riis’ miraculous victory at Le Tour, Max Sciandri taking bronze at the Summer Olympics in Atlanta or a profile on the Gewiss team in which Russian Evgeni Berzin rode.
So when Cycle Sports’ Editor-at-large Kenny Pryde asked if I’d be interested to contribute to the magazine, it was an easy decision to make. You can read my first feature article in the April 2016 edition of Cycle Sports, available for sale now in the UK and also in the iTunes store. I’d love to get your feedback; either in the comments section below, an email or a tweet.
