In the September issue of Cycling Plus, senior technical editor Warren Rossiter delves into the rich history of one of the world’s best and most successful bikes, the Specialized Roubaix, and the new, eagerly awaited Giant TCR finally gets a test ride.
The team also pits two bikes from Kinesis and Ribble, British brands taking on the world, against each other, and brings you tests of gear from Sidi, Spektrum, Coros and Le Col.
Once you’ve digested that, in the magazine’s 28-page supplement you’ll finally find a belated guide to this year’s Tour de France.
