Cycling fans: Kitty needs you!

Make your voice heard!

Kitty is looking to do two fan-focussed Friday Features (say that three times fast after you’ve been at the VV drinks trolley!) and she needs YOU! She’s looking for contributions around these two subjects:

How did you become a rabid cycling fan?

Did your mum make you keep track of the time differences between breakaways and the yellow jersey when you were young? Did you have a pirate fixation and latch on to the fan-wagon of Marco Pantani? Did you notice Fabian Cancellara‘s haunches and think “Hmmmm, now that’s a sport I could get on board with?” [Hmm, now I wonder who that sounds like? – Ed] Kitty wants to hear all the stories – it can be one line or a full paragraph!

Have you met any pro cyclists?

We believe that cyclists are some of the most accessible and down-to-earth athletes ever, seemingly always willing to meet fans, sign autographs, pose for pictures – but we want to prove it with your experiences! Have you shaken hands with Eddy Merckx? Have you posed for a picture with Mark Cavendish? Delivered cookies to the mighty Jens Voigt? Tell us your cyclist stories – send pics if you have them – and let’s big up these friendly, cool dudes!

Send your stories and pics to Kitty at and your VeloVoice can be heard!
