February 6, 2006 – Legendary Steve Bauer from Fenwick, Ontario has joined Pedal Magazine as a featured columnist this season with “Bauer Power”. Bauer joins the Pedal peloton alongside two of Canada’s top cyclists: Alison Sydor and Michael Barry. Bauer will pen columns for Pedal readers about his re-entry into the racing world with Team R.A.C.E. (formerly Gears).
Steve Bauer began his rise to fame with a silver medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and later that year won a bronze medal at the Road World Championships. He raced at the Tour de France 11 consecutive times, earning the white jersey for best young rider in his debut at the Tour in 1985. In 1988, Bauer won the first stage of the Tour and finished fourth overall. The following year, he added a world cup victory to his list of achievements winning the Championship of Zurich. In 1990, Bauer wore the yellow jersey at the Tour de France for an amazing 10 days.
Without a doubt Steve Bauer is Canada’s most acclaimed cyclist and Pedal Magazine is thrilled to have this cycling legend on our pages for 2006.
“I’m excited about contributing stories and advice to the Pedal readers over the next year,” said Bauer. “I have kept on eye on Michael Barry’s and Alison Sydor’s columns in Pedal over the years and it’s a nice opportunity to share my experiences both past and present. My first column will be about how and why I have returned to bike racing.”
“It’s amazing to have Steve on board at Pedal. He’s done so much for the sport and this is a great opportunity for readers across Canada to get up close and personal with a cycling legend,” commented Benjamin Sadavoy, Pedal’s publisher/editor. “His return to racing is more great news for cycling in Canada and we all look forward to reading his “Bauer Power” columns in Pedal.”
