GCN Presents THE COMPLETE FAN’S GUIDE TO PRO CYCLING By Peter Cossins, the award-winning cycling author explains the different races, gives insight to the many types of rider and reveals the tactics that go into making today’s top level bike racing work. 

Professional cycling is amazing and unique. “The toughest sport” employs the latest technology and sports science, and demands the highest levels of effort and commitment – yet exists in a culture steeped in history, romance and legend, with language and conventions that transcend time. Superficially, bike races are simple: all the riders set off together and the first across the finish line wins. But scratch the surface and there are myriad stories, specialisms and sub-competitions to enrich our experience – and perhaps – confuse us. We’ll explain how it works, and what to look out for.

A hugely respected cycling author, Peter has been writing professionally about our sport since the early 1990s, reporting on races, interviewing the sport’s biggest stars, and writing detailed and award-winning books to explain – and extend the appeal of – men’s and women’s road racing to a growing global audience. Here he shares his access and expertise with the GCN team and audience to bring a fresh insight in THE COMPLETE FAN’S GUIDE TO PRO CYCLING.
