Cycling's World Championships

Champion of the World! For a year the World Cycling Champion gets to wear a special white jersey with rainbow stripes. And then, for the rest of his career, he can wear a jersey with rainbow cuffs and collar. Unlike the Tour de France's Yellow Jersey, which can only be worn while leading the race, the rainbow is earned for life.

For more than a century organized cycling has been conferring that extraordinary and wonderful title, starting with the first championships held in Chicago in 1893. But it wasn't until 1927 that there was a professional world road championship race, won on the famous Nürburgring car circuit in Germany by the great Alfredo Binda.

Join Les Woodland as he tells the whole, fun and engrossing story of the bravery as well as the treachery and trickery in the World Championships, and the athletes who have been able wear the coveted colors of the rainbow. 

Cycling's World Championships: The Inside Story is available in print & eBook versions.

Felice Gimondi

It's May and that means the Giro d'Italia (Tour of Italy). Here's a picture of the man I think is the greatest Italian racer of the modern era, Felice Gimondi. He won the Giro in 1967, 1969 and 1976.

He's shown racing in 1973 wearing the rainbow jersey of the reigning world road champion. I don't know what race this photo has captured.

Gimondi is one of the few men to have won all three Grand Tours: the Tour de France (in 1965, with astonishing ease), the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España.

He also won Paris-Roubaix, Giro di Lombardia, the World Championships and nearly everything else that was important.

He was so elegant on the bike, his nickname was "The Aristocrat".

Here's our revealing interview with Signor Gimondi. I know you'll enjoy it.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
