Cycling news is pleased to announce that British writers Issy Ronald and Matilda Price have joined our team as regular contributors who will write news and articles to complement our ever-growing coverage of professional women’s cycling.
Ronald has just graduated from the London School of Economics where she studied for an undergraduate and masters in history and international relations.
From an internship at Procycling magazine, she has written reports on races such as the Tour de Bretagne, Bretagne Classic and the World Championships, as well as news articles, recaps of the general classification of the Grand Tours, and some reports for Cycling news.
“I have learned so much while working for Cycling news over the last few months and I can’t wait to start this new role covering professional women’s cycling, ”said Ronald.
“I love everything about cycling journalism; the drama throughout the races, the characters in the peloton and the places the races visit. Being able to keep doing that is very exciting.
Price is a UK-based freelance cycling journalist and digital producer. She graduated in modern languages and recently obtained a master’s degree in sports journalism, during which she wrote her dissertation on the life of young cyclists.
Price started covering cycling in 2016 while still in college, working mostly in the UK domestic scene at the start. Since then, she has covered everything from the Tour Series to the Tour de France.
Price focuses most of her attention on women’s sport, writing for Cycling news and work on the women’s cycling show The rabbit. In addition to the Women’s WorldTour, Price follows cyclo-cross and recently converted to downhill mountain biking.
“I am really delighted to join the growing team that covers women’s cycling at Cycling news. I am delighted to write for a publication that has shown an enduring commitment to the female side of sport and to report on it in a professional and high quality manner, ”said Price.
“As the last contributors to join Cycling news, I hope that Issy and I bring something new and exciting to the ever-expanding world of women’s cycling. “
