Well, to all the naysayers out there, you were right. Back on January 24th of 2008, EuroPeloton launched with the hope of being able to bring an alternative perspective to the sport of cycling. Not only that, but to become a familiar place for cycling fans to go to hear new and differing perspectives on the sport of cycling. But it was not meant to be.

Unfortunately, more than 400 posts later we at EP have realized that the desire to continue contributing to the site has vanished. From doping scandals in the sport to general lack of readership, EP sees no reason to continue posting articles. Instead, we have decided to follow other sports known for being decidedly cleaner than cycling.
It has been a good ride, but the time has clearly come to hang it up. Sure, there were some decent interviews, some funny pieces and even some controversial conversations, but at the end of the day EP was unable to spark enough interest in cycling fans to find a reason to continue. With thanks to all of those that did support us over our brief foray into the sport, EP thanks you from the bottom of our heart. Adios, and good night.
