Can anyone recommend any European Road Cycling magazines, preferably those available in English?

I'm reading through the latest copy of Procycling and am noticing how superior this magazine is to any I've ever seen on road cycling.
Great pictures, in depth interviews and analysis, and above all- big and full of cycling info- not so much advertising. Very cool.

Reading Cycle Sport makes you appreciate or mourn just how far Buycycling has slipped.

Cycle Sport and sister weekly magazine Cycling Weekly and Pro Cycling. Before US distribution, Cycle Sport was even better than it is now. We don't get "the real" Cycle Sport any more. Italian magazine Bici Sport is "the best". Photos in Bici Sport are the best in the world, bar none. Plus, it will inspire you to learn to read italian and you can visit all the cool websites advertised in it.
Thanks for the adviceJames1

Already ordered the 3 issue trail of Cycle Sport! If it good enough for Phil, its good enough for me. Loved his commentary during the Tour!

I'm in England for the year and have found the following (ranked in order of my preference:

Cycle Sport (good racing coverage, some product stuff)
ProCycling (Similar to CS, probably a tie for #1)
Cycling Weekly (Up to date racing news, product info and bike tests)
Cycling Plus (The UK version of Bicycling Magazine IMO)

All are pretty good although I don't go out of my way to get C+ any more. As an aside I was able to buy all of these at Borders Books before we moved to the UK last year althought they are EXPENSIVE (almost 8 bucks for C+, can't remember for the others). Subscription as always would be the way to go after you decide what you like.
