Doppio: Issue 12
The Doppio is Rapha's weekly double-shot of road racing reportage. A two-faced publication of the week's action and what's up the road, every Wednesday we review and preview the week's biggest races and fill you in on the details in between. Available in all Cycle Clubs – San Francisco, London and Osaka – we'll also be offering the Doppio as a downloadable document on the site each week, absolutely free.
The WorldTour riders this week are sitting firmly in the Alpine regions of Europe – half of them on the western edges racing the Critérium du Dauphiné as we go to press, and half of them further east, about to undertake the Tour de Suisse. We have a guide to what's happening in both, as well as a feature on the Smithfield Nocturne. This weekend will be the 7th edition of the criterium that sends riders on a challenging course around an historic meat market in central London. Doppio profiles the race, which was the brainchild of Rapha and Condor, and asks Rapha-Condor-JLT manager John Herety if this is the year the team might chalk up its first win…
Best enjoyed with an espresso or two.
