Several issues ago we gave our illustrator Matthew Burton an opportunity to create player cards. Along the lines of baseball and football cards, they carry basic stats on the back and a hand-drawn image of the featured rider on the front. They were perforated so you can separate them, and bound in to the spine of the magazine. We did these for about four issues. It’s unique, to say the least, and I can’t think of any other cycling magazine who would have the audacity to do such a thing.
