VeloNews returns to its roots

North America’s most storied cycling publication returns to VeloNews in April issue

BOULDER – March 8, 2016 – North America’s oldest bike-racing title is back to its roots as VeloNews. After five years under the name Velo, the 44-year-old print publication has, with its April issue, rebranded as VeloNews. The issue, featuring Taylor Phinney on the cover, hits newsstands on March 8.

“VeloNews is officially back,” says editor-in-chief John Bradley, who took charge of both the magazine and in June of 2015. “This brand has been such an integral part of American cycling culture, and now we’re back to the original name as we recapture the passion and energy that defined us for decades.”

Known as the “Journal of Competitive Cycling,” VeloNews has reported on and helped shape American bike racing culture for decades. The brand takes readers behind the scenes of all of cycling’s biggest races and most important stories, with breaking news, commentary, humor, and deep dives into cycling culture.

“Like the sport of cycling, VeloNews is constantly evolving but also steeped in history,” Bradley says. “And just like our readers—and the athletes we cover—our editors balance a love of racing and modern cycling technology with an appreciation for cycling’s deep traditions. That’s what this name change is about. It’s both an embrace of our past and a big, flying leap forward. This is going to be a lot of fun.”
