Welcome to Australian Cycling Insider! I’m Jamie Finch-Penninger, a freelance cycling journalist who has spent the past 5 years writing for most of the major Australian cycling websites and a few international ones. I’ve spent much of that time on the National Road Series beat as well as the summer races, with plenty of international racing experience from the couch or monitoring things for SBS from their studios in Sydney.
Over recent years, there has been a steady decline in what I would term quality local cycling content from the media and certainly I was finding it increasingly difficult to get what I considered good stories published, so I decided to start Australian Cycling Insider.
The goal of the site is to provide a spotlight on the local cycling scene and Australian cyclists abroad. I’m predominantly across the road racing scene, but will be keeping an eye across other disciplines as well.
Many of you will know me through the BrakeDown podcast, which will be rebranded as the Australian Cycling Insider podcast in the coming weeks.
