In this issue of Rouleur : Tom Simpson might have been a great racer, but the public persona of the bowler-hatted Brit made the man from a Northern mining town a superstar of his day. From Andy McGrath’s new book on Simpson, 50 years after the tragedy of Mont Ventoux. Few can lay claim to working on 50 Tours de France – and certainly not photographers. John Pierce’s route to the half-century via his extraordinary mother, a lottery win and a Lambretta… “I have no idea what is going on, but it’s bloody great to watch.” The Hammer Series kicks off in Holland, but will it take off? Also featuring: Tour de France street art from Luxembourg, radical Californian thinking at Specialized, Esteban Chaves, debunking Tour myths and legends, women improving with age and cool clothing for a hot summer. Plus columnists Matt Seaton, Matt Rendell and Robert Millar.
