BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — CyclingTips has promoted Caley Fretz to the position of editor-in-chief as Neal Rogers, who previously held the position, becomes the media company's editor at large.

Fretz joined CyclingTips as senior editor in November 2017 following seven years in the editorial department at VeloNews. He led CyclingTips' coverage of the Tour de France and the rebirth of its weekly CyclingTips Podcast, and will now oversee editorial direction across CyclingTips' digital platforms.

Wade Wallace, CyclingTips' founder, said, "Media is changing at a blazing pace and we're excited by the new energy and ideas that Caley brings to our editorial direction. Neal has done a tremendous job at establishing CyclingTips in the U.S. market and now allowing him focus on what he's good at makes our entire product better."

Fretz said, "Wade has built an incredible media outlet in just 10 years, and it's an honor to step up and lead it into the next 10. The talent and passion behind our editorial product is self-evident, and CyclingTips is uniquely placed to take advantage of the quickly shifting media landscape in which we all find ourselves. We'll continue to tell the best stories, and the most beautiful stories, in cycling."

Rogers, who has been with CyclingTips since January 2016, will contribute a weekly column and regular features as well as continuing his recurring role on the CyclingTips Podcast.

"I've worked with Caley on and off for a decade now. From an editorial perspective, we see things very similarly, and I'm happy to see him steering the ship," Rogers said. "Likewise, I'm excited to focus more on what I enjoy most: writing and creating content."
