ANOTHER YEAR - ANOTHER CYCLING WEB SITE?
Why bother with adding more web pages about a sport that is already well served by many others? What more is there that needs to be said? Doesn’t every angle get covered already?
You would think so - but then I started finding some gaps. There were facts and stories that even I could remember but the Internet failed to cover (or had got totally wrong!). So I started searching through my paper records for missing facts. And this site was created as a result - a bit more than a personal blog but much less than a corporate web site. It’s a sort of SuperBlog that brings together a random assortment from around the cycling world. In scope InternationalCycleSport.com revisits the past and looks to the future. Anything connected with cycling is a possible inclusion. But everything is my personal choice - since, just like blogging, it’s only me, not a team, that’s producing the content.
So this is very much a labour of love - a not for profit web site that is a constant drain on my very limited resources. And if no one needs its content then I can save myself some money by moving on ... But for 2015 the Tour Down Under and Tour de Yorkshire are already lined-up - so that’s something to look forward to ... And with first European classic weekend producing a win for Ian Stannard, in the Omloop, it feels like the 2015 season is already off to a great start.
