In case you hadn’t noticed, the Tour de France starts on Saturday. During July I’ll be doing a few blog pieces for cyclingnews.com that touch on the Tour de France, the usual “Inner Ring” take on things.
Each time I’ll link to them in case you want to read and the first piece is now available to read online.
It’s a general take on the Tour, to say that even if you prefer other races – for whatever reason – the Tour just attracts a level of coverage that means there’s always something to enjoy during July. Even if the racing proves boring, you’ll get soap opera stories about riders struggling with injuries, controversy over sprint finishes and other sub plots. The sheer size of the race means so many details get covered when often they’d be overlooked in another race.
I was asked if I’d be interested in write something for their website and thought it would be fun to try. Nothing’s changing here at inrng.com, you’ll find the usual mix of things.
