Ever since he was bullied by his brothers into watching the Tour de France as an eight-year-old, Saddles has been a cycling fanatic. As persistent as Voigt, as fast as Abdoujaparov, as voracious as Ullrich and as accurate as a Festina watch, Saddleblaze offers a lighter take on the oft-grave world of professional cycling. The self-styled best cycling-blog pedlar in the business, Saddles refutes sullied claims of doping levelled by his rivals: these nuggets are powered on Gerolsteiner fizzy water alone. Just ask his good friend Bernhard Kohl for a reference. You can follow him on Twitter @saddleblaze
