I know times change and we all need to adapt and except the need to make things better, more efficient, cheaper?! But aren’t we missing something here?
I know it definitely isn’t just me who thinks this way, so I’ve not gone completely mad. Professional cycling is so steeped in history, so inextricably linked to what has come before that I think it makes it pretty unique compared to other sports. The races are so old and full of legend, the respect paid to times, places, riders and practices of old is immense. Tradition is at the very heart of it and this sport has so much soul, but only up to a point!
