Time flies when you're launching a website, been so busy thinking about product reviews, databases, search terms and forums migrations... particularly that last one, when suddenly... here comes the Tour de France! Luckily while I've been distracted the rest of the team have been putting our Tour coverage in place - our Tour de France section goes live today with a race preview, news, stats and information, tomorrow we start our live coverage at the prologue, and today the first of our Tour podcasts will be available for you to download.
We've got together with the guys from Procycling to bring you a daily insider's view of what's happening at Le Tour and we won't only be concentrating on the racing - we'll be looking at the bikes and kit the pros are using too.
Big though the Tour is, it is not just what BikeRadar is going to be about for the rest of July, we'll still be hunting out all the latest mountain bike, commuting, and family cycling news from across the world. Luckily we've got the team to do it, with Gary Boulanger our US Editor on the case in San Francisco, and John Stevenson our International Editor based in Sydney - BikeRadar is the site that never sleeps, bit like me at the moment then.
Just so you can put some faces to names: John's the guy with the John Innes No 1** plastered all over his face who looks like he's having a religious experience in some of the ads for BikeRadar, I'm the moody looking bloke who's head kept bouncing up and down to comedic effect in some other ads for the site and Jeff Jones our European News Editor is the fella who looks like he's having trouble keeping his glasses on.
Right, back to worrying about websites - we hope you enjoy BikeRadar, we think it's pretty good so far, but there's a lot more to do yet. We want to make this an indispensable part of every bike rider's day, whatever type of bike you ride and wherever in the world you ride it.
