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 have already been great. And the first European classic weekend produced a win for Ian Stannard, in the Omloop, so the 2015 season got off to a great start. A series of other great sporting performances has kept the sport in public view - culminating in Chris Froome’s victory in the Tour de France. Hopefully the return of the London Six Day will attract the crowds after the road season finishes in October.
