I am in the process of building an archive of work from Guardian and Observer pre-2000 and other magazine work. It can be found through this link but is ongoing as I have 10 years material to unearth and upload. It will probably never be comprehensive.


The bulk of my work from the last 10 years is to be found on the Guardian and Observer website archive, which can be searched through this link.

The articles start in late 2000, but are complete from 2001.

To find an individual race, narrow the search criteria and look for the relevant year. Among the 1300 and rising articles listed you should find the following:

  • Tour de France 2001-2007 inclusive; 2008, 2010 in part
    (I didn’t report these Tours in full).
  • Olympics 2004 and 2008
  • Rugby World Cup 2003 and 2007 – mainly France
  • Commonwealth Games 2002
  • World road championships 2001, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010
  • World track championships 2002-6 inclusive; 2008-2011
  • Tour of Britain 2004-2010 inclusive

Other picks include:
