The cycling community was stunned on Wednesday by the news that Richard Moore had passed away on Monday, at the age of 49. Perhaps best known as a podcaster, fronting The Cycling Podcast for the past decade, Richard was a respected and much-loved cycling journalist and award-winning author. But before he took up the pen, he was a professional cyclist himself, competing in the 1998 Commonwealth Games. Euan reflects on what Richard has meant to him.
There was a lot of racing this past week, but only one story. Intermarche-Wanty-Goubert’s Biniam Girmay made history by sprinting to victory after 250km of Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday. Significant in so many ways, not least that it was one of the most positive timelines after a race we’ve seen in a long time. It’s an extra-special Tweets of the Week!
It was the first (official) Monument of the season and certainly through the 5hrs of not-a-lot-happening, the tweeters were out in force … But our timeline really went bananas as the favourites went over the Poggio. It’s another ripping Tweets of the Week with *that* descent, Formolo faces, Tufts of Power, Lachlan’s big adventure, burger butts and much much more.
