Cycling Illustrated™ -The Cycling Platform Built by Cyclists
By: Brandon Hale -Founder
Our mission is to provide complete coverage of Cycling with world-class journalism. Our service is based on honesty, trust and integrity, all of which are imperative to our success. Our aim is to bring absolute fulfillment to, and to meet the expectations of the visitors and loyal fans of Cyclingillustrated.com™. We understand the connection between an athlete and his or her fan base.
At Cycling Illustrated™, we know that the marketing program we plug into this world will burn brighter. Why? Because we are different.
Cycling Illustrated’s™ core values are Cycling Culture, Community, and innovation. Across many different disciplines, Road, Cyclocross CX, Mountain MTB and Track, the lifestyle of this sport is evident.
On Cyclingillustrated.com™ there is an undeniable community and culture within that community. When photographers capture that perfect moment in time and athletes tell their story, they represent everything our brand stands for. Cyclists Build Our Brand, with Cyclists, and For Cyclists.
We are a platform that brings the cycling world together through community.
At Cycling Illustrated™ we do this through Social E-content. We combine the Cycling Lifestyle with the social experience. At Cycling Illustrated™ you can have your own profile, add friends and share links, videos and images with your friends.
At Cyclingillustrated.com™ we take you behind the scenes. We share many voices from the peloton with enthusiasts, fellow riders and young athletes aspiring to be successful in the sport of cycling. We enable athletes to make an emotional connection with their fans. When cyclists use this platform to tell their story, we are able to help them grow their own fan base of people who support their career. We also understand the importance of sponsor exposure. Giving athletes the chance to share directly with those who follow them also exposes the sponsor to millions of views.
Let’s take a look at some of the best features on Cyclingillustrated.com™.
This is our Photographer Gallery. Here, you can easily find any image from your favorite photographer or discover new photos that you haven’t seen before. We feature world-class photography and capture unbelievable images from races worldwide. In this section, you can find images from any race we have covered.
Aren’t sure what time the Pro race starts? No problem, head over to our race schedule. Here you can quickly look up any participating cyclist and/or the time of a race. This section is growing everyday.
We also feature the some of the absolute best columnists. I like to refer to them as “personalities” because they don’t reinvent the wheel when they write about races, inspiration, Health and Nutrition. These columnists are funny, passionate and well spoken. Check out this area to learn more about cycling and to read many different opinions about the sport.
One of our most popular segments is “The Conversation”. This part of our site gives the viewers a face and a voice. In other words, an opportunity to really connect with the riders and the lifestyle they lead. Here you will discover things about your favorite athlete that you never knew and sometimes you will hear breaking news!
Want to find out about a specific team? Check the “Teams” page. Here, you can read the latest press releases or column on any team that is a part of the Cycling Illustrated™ community.
Let’s not forget about Live Stream– this is our viewing station. We bring you all of the races that are available to be streamed from all over the country. This means you no longer need to hop on a plane to see your favorite cyclist cross the finish line…or if you want to see what’s happening on the other side of the course you can be at the venue and streaming at the same time!
The best feature we have saved for last. Coming Real Soon!
