Dan Martin Announces Retirement From Professional Cycling

Robyn Davidson 4 Sep 2021 35-year-old Irishman states racing has lost its fun element, is excited for new challenges in life Dan Martin has announced he will retire at the end of the season after 14 seasons as a professional cyclist. The Israel Start-Up Nation rider, whose next race is the upcoming Tour of Britain, said he feels the time is right to move on and achieve other things in life. ‘In some ways, deciding to stop has been challenging and complex. It’s perhaps one of the biggest and most important decisions I have ever made, and in other ways, it’s been easy. Though I am still competitive, I’ve realised that racing has lost the fun element: the whole reason I race in the first place. ‘Giving 100% to what I do has always been how I operate. Though I could continue racing for a few years to come, and ...

Deceuninck-Quickstep To Become Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team

Deceuninck-QuickStep to become Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team

Will Strickson 12 Jul 2021 Patrick Lefevere's Wolfpack will only have one name sponsor in 2022 as Deceuninck contract ends while Quick-Step extends deal Deceuninck-QuickStep have announced that they will go by the name Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team in 2022. As the deal with window specialist Deceuninck comes to an end after an incredibly successful three years, definitely getting its money's worth, Quick-Step will become the only name sponsor for next year. Having recently extended its partnership with Patrick Lefevere's outfit until 2027, the flooring brand that has been the team's main sponsor since their inception will use the opportunity to promote its Alpha Vinyl range. You can see why the sponsor remains attached to the Wolfpack too, not only do they consistently win the biggest races on the cycling calendar but the team's output runs parallel with the brand's own plans.

How To Build A Home Bicycle Workshop

Cyclist magazine 13 Apr 2021 Doing it yourself won’t just give you a sense of smug satisfaction, it’ll save you time and cash too Take a peek in the workshop of your local bike shop and you may be left dumbstruck. There’ll be strange-looking tools hanging from walls, bikes stripped down and hanging from stands, pots of brightly coloured fluids sitting on worktops, oily rags, latex gloves… To the untrained eye, it may look like there’s serious alchemy at work, but the truth is if you can assemble a flat-packed Ikea wardrobe, with a little know-how you can keep your bike in fine fettle too. In fact, the business of bicycle maintenance has never been simpler, thanks to manufacturers making components easier than ever to service and install. The only limiting factor will be the time it takes to do the job yourself. But seeing as any decent bike shop ...

Cycling Strength Circuits: Get Strong For The Saddle

Ben Ince 19 Jan 2021 Do these circuits at home or the gym to be faster and more injury-proof on the bike Photography: Danny Bird Nothing beats time in the saddle for improving your cycling, but with the NHS now advising two strength sessions a week for general fitness, and recent research highlighting the benefits for cyclists (see issue 108), there has never been a better time to embrace off-the-bike training. Strength training is a crucial part of every pro’s arsenal, but this hasn’t always been the case. Despite their status as elite endurance athletes, previous generations had a higher propensity for osteoporosis later in life, having never done the load-bearing work required to increase their bone density. ‘People think strength training is all about building muscle to ride faster, but it’s also crucial for correcting imbalances and preventing injury,’ says coach Richard Lord from Espresso Cycle Coaching . ‘A ...
