    • Meet The Maker - Halley Stevensons

      The car escapes Edinburgh via the huge spans of the Forth Bridge and heads towards the foothills of the Highlands. We are driving to Dundee through the beautiful, rugged terrain of Scotland's east coast. It is these mountains and the unforgiving North Sea that call the tune in these parts as far as the weather goes, thus it is no surprise that the region is home to the world leader in the manufacturing of performance waxed cottons, Halley Stevensons.

    • Matt Brammeier: Champion Rising

      Sitting semi-slouched on a restaurant chair in one of the few quiet corners of the Hotel Mecure in Roeselare, Matt Brammeier exudes the relaxed demeanour of somebody who has finally found his niche within an occupation that has gifted him nothing. The path to where he now finds himself has demanded deep self-belief and a survivor’s instinct, eyes always open and an ear constantly to the ground, as he jumped from each stepping-stone of collapsing team and contract disintegration beneath his feet to the next in Indiana Jones-esque fashion. (...)

    • Cycling in Tenerife: Cycling Monk and the Synergy Volcano Tour

      With a bucket-list of European climbs to scale, I realised that the mountain-climbing writings of the likes of Daniel Friebe and Simon Warren had never mentioned Tenerife. Perhaps there were no mountains to speak of? So, here is the second great secret of Tenerife - it is a hill climbers' paradise. Almost nowhere on the island is flat and with the highest road rearing above 2300m from sea-level, Tenerife offers the highest continually ascending road in Europe. I had to go. (...)

    • Break out the Jupiler, the Ronde is in Town

      There was, a few years ago, a TV show aired on a domestic Belgian Channel. It was a show about the Ronde Van Vlaanderen - but not as a history lesson, cataloguing years and winners; the show followed the threads of numerous ordinary people's lives on this very special day. There was a corporate VIP who, through a catalogue of mishaps, missed all of the racing; a suicide case determined to end it all and a father-in-law who, looking down on the neat little villages of Flanders via the race helicopter's TV eye...
