With the change of the clock imminent and the 100 days to go mark until the Yorkshire Grand Depart of the Tour de France passed, there is an inescapable sense that winter is on its way out, despite the return of the rain.
The Spring Classics have begun, it’s almost broad daylight by 5.30am, and the people of Yorkshire are growing steadily more excited as the arrival of the world’s biggest annual sporting event draws ever closer.
It’s been another breathless week on RCUK, with new machines from Cherubim and Canyon arriving, races from cycling’s elite UCI WorldTour coming thick and fast, and a timely selection of rain wear from Sugoi and Hincapie Sportswear being put to the test. Thank goodness for Mike Cotty and his tips for making the most of your time in the saddle.
