In this issue of Rouleur : A suitably autumnal line-up for issue 58, as another road season draws to a close and cyclo-cross takes centre stage for the winter. Hennie Kuiper: Olympic champion, world champion, winner of Paris- Roubaix, Lombardia, the Tour of Flanders, Milan-Sanremo – practically every major one-day race in existence. We celebrate the career of the ultimate flying Dutchman. Belgian interest in the formerly thriving kermesse circuit tailed off in the years following Eddy Merckx’s retirement. Will cyclo-cross suffer the same fate in its homeland as the great Sven Nys nears the end of his career? A Nys photo special from Balint Hamvas. Also featuring: A brief history of cycling footwear from Adidas; Former professional Ben Greenwood on depression and eating disorders in the peloton; Beautiful jerseys and the stories behind them from De Marchi, manufacturing quality cycling wear since 1946; Italian gregario Dario Cataldo and his etchings; Paul Maunder’s examination of the lonesome cyclist and a race with Merckx imagined. Plus regular columnists Robert Millar and Matt Seaton.
