BON COURAGE CYCLIST OF THE DAY!!

  Well as we are only 1.5 days in its really cyclist of yesterday! The very prestigious award of course has to go to Rohan Dennis.

If that wasn't enough, he also has set a new Tour record for the fastest individual time trial speed, averaging 55.446 km/ph. What a brilliant day to the start of the Tour De France! Well done Rohan, and also to Steve Cummings for being the best British rider finishing in 10th

DAY 1 - Who are the British riders in the 2015 Tour de France?

This year sees 10 British riders in Saturdays starting list, the most British riders since 1955. Last year only 4 British riders took part, with just 1 making it to the last stage in Paris. So its great to see such an increase. As expected Sky has the most British riders, and has Chris Froome heading up a team that includes Geraint Thomas, Luke Rowe, Ian Stannard & Peter Kennaugh.  Fresh from his National Championships win, Peter Kannaugh could easily cause some upset to his Isle of Man Buddy Mark Cavendish on some of the sprint finish stages. Also riding of course is Cavendish. Mark has won an amazing 25 stages throughout the tours he has raced in in the last few...

Giro D'Italia

So as we reach May the first grand Tour of the season looms. The Giro d'Italia starts in San Lorenzo next Saturday, and the 3 week race includes 6 mountain finishes and an 59.2km individual time trial. Stages in previous years have been riden in snow storms and heatwaves, so riders never know whats in store for them.
