Unique and practical, VELO is the annual reference book that presents detailed information on the past cycling season.
VELO 2022 continues its new momentum.
At the end of the chaotic season of 2020, the publisher, the coordinator and the authors of the VELO directory had decided to return to the formula of a single volume, a kind of return to the source, since for a long time, VELO presented thus the past season. Our loyal readers having appreciated this choice, we have decided to continue on this new momentum. A single volume, therefore, with 320 pages, more than the previous edition, because more proofs have taken place. Admittedly, apart from Europe which suffered only a few cancellations or date changes, on the other continents few races were contested.
The 2021 season was rich, revealing or confirming some very strong personalities of the professional road peloton. World number 1, Slovenian Tadej Pogacar dominates the Tour de France and triumphs in two “monuments”, Liège-Bastogne-Liège in the spring, the Tour of Lombardy in the fall. Like him, his compatriot Primoz Roglic, dominator in Spain and Olympic gold medalist in the time trial won 13 victories, a hunting score equaled by Belgian Wout Van Aert who excels in all fields. The fourth thief is French Julian Alaphilippe who signs a feat by extending his world title in Belgium. Still others have marked a superb season, described in words and numbers in this new edition of VELO.
VELO 2022, like its predecessor, reveals the results of other cycling disciplines, devotes a chapter to Olympic events and another to riders or cycling personalities who have left us, it takes up the files of the past year, as well as a projection male and female calendars of the new season.
The publication date is set for February 10, 2022, VELO 2022 will therefore be available from February 14.
