This week, we are launching our 'Beckett Trends' blog series. Every day we will be bringing you expert insight from our academics into the trends and issues we expect to see hitting the headlines in 2018.
The Tour de France is coming to town tomorrow and Lynne Hibberd is reflecting on the way that we now use media to document such moments in time and place, leading up to Leeds Met's Media and Place conference next weekend and the launch of the new masters degree in Media.
As news breaks that cyclist Daryl Impey (the first South African to wear the yellow jersey in Tour de France history last year) has failed a drugs test, Professor Susan Backhouse reflects on the importance of education in preventing doping in sport.
With less than a month now to go until the Grand Départ, we're continuing our series of academic expert blog posts around this highly-anticipated event. This week, Professor Jim McKenna writes about the idea of sporting legacy and considers the likely impact that the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire will have on our cycling habits.
With just one month left to go before we welcome the Tour de France to Yorkshire, we begin a series of blog posts inspired by cycling. In today's post, Professor Karl Spracklen shares his plans for spending the day of the event and how we can tie it in with traditional ideas of leisure and freedom.
Following Lance Armstrong's admission to doping, it is evident that detection-based deterrence is not effective in deterring all athletes from using performance enhancing substances. More emphasis is needed on prevention.
"The United States Anti-Doping Association (USADA) claims that Armstrong and his US Postal Service Team (UPS) Team "ran the most sophisticated, professionalized (sic) and successful doping programme the sport has ever seen." And as we know he has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.
