For the 100th Giro d’Italia, Ian Parkinson gets the views of pros and ex-pros on chasing the Maglia Rosa and dealing with the tifosi.

 

David Millar: “When you do the Giro it feels like you’re part of a circus and you’re one of the animals…”

 

Jens Voigt: “They cheer you if you’re winning the stage, and if you’re dead last they still shout at you, I love that…”

 

Plus Alex Dowsett and Megan Guarnier. And a fascinating interview with the ultimate cycling maverick Graeme Obree – on training, doping, why team pursuit bikes should be shorter and his life philosophy.

 

“First priority, riding the bike. I avoid car ownership and I avoid expensive hobbies because that would mean further work, and that’s time that could be riding a bike”.

 

All that, and the Rouleur competition.
