On sale now, the July issue of Procycling is our Tour de France special, running to 164 pages plus a FREE 36-page supplement giving you all the information you need to follow the world’s greatest race. Just in case you somehow hadn’t noticed, the Tour is starting in London so we sit down with David Millar and Dave Zabriskie, the two favourites for the prologue, to talk time trialling, cycling superheroes and, erm, lawn mowers. Sticking with the Millar name, we feature an exclusive extract from the new book by Richard Moore about Britain’s best-ever Tour rider Robert Millar. We have also reached our “centenary” of issues, and celebrate that milestone with a look back at the best moments in Procycling’s eight-year history from Lance’s Lust for Life to Cipo’ on sex. Our Tour focus also takes us to Norway and an at-home interview with leading sprinter Thor Hushovd, winner of the points title in 2005 and two Tour stages last year. We also ask George Hincapie why he was prepared to forsake his own prospects to further those of Lance Armstrong, and divert to away from the Tour but stay in France to experience the madness that is the Tro Bro Leon, the Breton version of Paris-Roubaix. In our regulars, the bike test focus is on Focus as Marcel Wust puts their Izalco Extreme through its paces. Our Classic Climbs feature takes Ellis Bacon to the Col du Perjuret in France’s Cevennes where Roger Riviere lost the Tour and his career in the 1960 Tour. We’ve got columns from our resident pros, Frank Hoj, Tom Danielson and Olivia Gollan, and in The Spin – professional cycling’s first stop for the latest gossip, news and reviews and – there’s the confessions of Team Telekom, Giro sensation Andy Schleck, Chris Horner, the retiring Michael Boogerd, the Smithfield Criterium and A. Pope’s view of the Tour in London . Don’t miss it! Click on the image of David Millar on July’s cover (just to the left) for more details on this latest edition of Procycling.
