    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
    http://www.tony-bell.co.uk/
    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.

    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 ;)
