Rouleur 13 is out in a couple of days and features the Tour, the Giro, the Spring Classics and all you ever wanted to know, but were too afraid to ask… about fitting tubs. Highlights of the new issue include:
- Robert Millar writing about Stage 17 of the 1984 Tour
- A tribute to the men and mountains of the Giro and a look at the Spring Classics through the lenses of six of Rouleur's photographers.
- William Fotheringham talks about Fausto Coppi ahead of the publication of his upcoming book Fallen Angel on Ill Campionissimo and there's an extract too.
- Les Woodland analyses the significance of Millar's '84 King of the Mountains – the Scot is still the only English speaking rider to do so

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
