Does anyone know what happoned to Tony Bell in Cycling Weekly, he wrote ''ask Tony'' in the mag?
CW, in its wisdom, dropped Mr Bell as a columnist.
I do believe he may be writing a book. Whatever he's doing, I wish him well.
Mr Bell has recently had an offer from a publisher...
Magazines need change to remain fresh and current. I have nothing against Tony but I did not really enjoy his articles. Bit boring, bit stale.
Tony Bell's column was the highlight of the publication most times, it's a shame that he's not writing it for one of the other mags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe he left. Not dropped.
I was a big fan of Tony's page, especially Bobby Clamp.
He frequents the veloriders forum, and can also be found at
Cycling Weekly is not the same now, to PC for my liking, and I find Hutchinsons page, as funny as a punch in the mouth
I seem to remember you'll find him very active over on veloriders.
Tony Bell is now working as a bus driver.
Tony used to turn up on the old C+ forum at times. he didn't make the change to this place.
I quite like Hutch. Sorry.
Not so keen on Hutch - some articles are good, others are dribble.... very variable in my opinion.
Dr Hutch is the single best thing in that magazine.
It was quite a revelation coming across him in such a dry read.
Dr. H has a wickedly dry sense of humour. He's a nice guy in real life.
Mr Bell is also a nice guy.
I like both columns - they're different to each other, but I like both. Mind you, I rarely buy The Comic these days. I have rarely bought it since Mr B was dropped.
Horses for courses....
I like CW...i find it covers most areas adequately, which is all i want. I dont follow team news, individuals, teams etc etc. I get a snapshot with CW...good enough for me.
Dr Hutch...took a while to get used to his page, but i do like it.... Its grown on me.
TB...well, theres only one
