Rouleur is certainly the most beautiful magazine dedicated to road cycling. The elegance of the support competes with the passion that emanates from each page, all in a refined layout. More than a magazine, each of the eight annual issues is a collector's item.
It is therefore a source of great pride for Mercier to be the subject of an article in the prestigious journal. The opportunity to (re)discover the century-old history of the brand, its renewal and the motivations of the team to embark on such an adventure.

From Omloop Het Nieuwsblad to Liège-Bastogne-Liège via Paris-Roubaix, a journey through the spring Classics that we love, with compelling stories that celebrate tough races, gritty champions and the richness of cycling culture.
Starring Sonny Colbrelli, Elia Viviani, Letizia Paternoster, Team SD Worx, Roubaix first-timers, Kasia Niewiadoma, graffiti artists of the Belgian bergs and, of course, cobbles galore.
Writer Paul Maunder dissects the mighty stones beneath our wheels in The Joy of Setts. Former pro racers Allen Peiper and his good friend Bert Roesems weave their way around the famous climbs of the Vlaamse Ardennen, including the mighty Muur. Legendary photographer Graham Watson contributes his selection of the finest and grittiest Classics shots from his distinguished 40-year career at the races.
And what trip to Belgium would be complete without sampling some fine Trappist ales? We sort the wheat from the chaff by tasting a dozen quality beers. It’s a dirty job but someone has to do it… Proost!
Plus regular columnists Orla Chennaoui and Ned Boulting.
