  • Coming Into Professional Sport Later In Life

    A financial analyst for a world renowned investment bank Goldmans Sachs in London, Maddy now spends her days on her bike on the gravel scene around the World. Quite a transition from the office to the open road, but an experience and path she wouldn’t change. Maddy talks about the challenges coming into sport later in life, the imposter syndrome, but the skills she believes she gained from gaining her degree and corporate experience first. But probably the key message is…it’s never too late.

  • Parcours X Greenspark

    As a business that focuses on carbon, we believe it is important to acknowledge our carbon footprint and make a difference where we can as it is impossible to ignore the increased awareness and the urgency needed to tackle climate change. A year ago for Black Friday, we partnered with Ecologi and doubled our ‘Watts for Trees’ campaign meaning double the amount of trees planted for each wheelset purchased, moving the business closer to becoming “Climate Positive” and enhancing our environmental impact. To date, we have been able to plant over 10,000 trees as part of this campaign.
  • Kona Ironman World Championship Race Report - Contributed by Laura Siddall

    Ironman World Championships 2023 had a slightly different feel to them.

  • How do you really choose your tyres for gravel racing? - Contributed by Parcours athlete Caroline Livesey

    What I have come to realise this year is that the term “gravel” really means different things to different people.  The gravel roads that are available to ride vary wildly in different parts of the world. It sounds obvious really, but it means that someone from Sweden for example has a totally different idea of what a gravel race looks like to someone from France, let alone the USA or Argentina.  That makes it a bit tricky for the UCI to find a gravel route fitting of a world championships that suits everyone.
