LCET is back with the best cycling content produced by insightful and independent journalists
As the 2023 racing season gets under way, independent cycling media is under threat. The demise of longstanding publications, the inability of new ones to establish a foothold, the reluctance of investors to support young journalists and the growing ability of riders, teams, sponsors and promoters to control their own narratives, has emphasised that independent cycling content is best owned, managed and created by independent cycling people.
Founded in May 2020, La Course En Tete (LCET) has always been exactly that, showcasing the work of some of the most acclaimed, experienced and respected writers in the sport, while also offering an opportunity for talented young journalists to develop their skills. Dormant due to unforeseen circumstances in the latter half of last year, LCET will be back this year, confirming its reputation for independent, insightful and intelligent coverage of road racing.
Road racing is a sport founded and fuelled by great journalism. It has been celebrated in all its forms, for over a century, by great writing, and when needed, held to account by quality investigative work. Those who regularly contribute to LCET are among the most renowned journalists, authors and editors in cycling, whose work has also proven influential, provocative and informative.
As the 2023 season gets going, our coverage will gather pace. For now though, we are reliant on the goodwill of our followers and of those who wish to donate or fund LCET and its pool of writers.
You can do that HERE.
Thanks for you continued support and we very much hope you’ll enjoy reading LCET in 2023.
