    Hoogvliet - Gent - Wevelgem -  left Stefan Mutter and Phil Anderson - Fons De Wolf grits his teeth as he accelerates up the Kemmelberg. The Belgian would round out the podium during the 1982 race. De Wolf was considered by many to be the successor to Eddy Merckx. He would secure many wins throughout his career including winning the 1980 Giro di Lombardia and the 1981 Milan-San Remo. After retiring from cycling in 1990, he became a funeral director in Breendonk  - foto Cor Vos ©2012

    Ed Hood has dug into his suitcase of retro and pulled out an interview with John Trevorrow to keep you entertained over the festive period.

    War drives technology, as evidenced by the device I’m using to write this article on and the one you are using to read it by, as well as by the internet that has delivered these words to you. These technologies were of course first utilised by the military-industrial complex before being repackaged for use by the wider society.

What could be better?
