Rouleur Conversations - Frank Vandenbroucke + The Joy of Setts

‘Cycling’s Great Wasted Talent’ is the cover line of a new book dedicated to Belgium’s tragic star Frank Vandenbroucke. Eddy Merckx said Vandenbroucke was so talented he could win anything in cycling but he was brought down by a series of drugs scandals - on and off the bike - and an urge for excess and self-destruction. In his book ‘God Is Dead’, former Rouleur Editor Andy McGrath details Vandenbroucke’s extraordinary rise and fall. Also on this edition, Phil Wright reads ‘The Joy of Setts’ from Rouleur 110, Paul Maunder’s detailed tribute to the cobble.
