Rapha has released two more films in the series “The Little Things,” which takes a behind-the-scenes look at Team Sky, whose clothing it provides.
The first shows Ben Swift, third at Milan-San Remo last week and winner of the a leg of the split stage of the Settimana Coppi e Barali yesterday, talking us through his Team Sky wet bag.
The second features American rider Ian Boswell revealing his approach to descending.
There is no secret at Team Sky, they simply do all the little things better than anyone else — focusing on the details that matter.
This season we bring you films, photos and words from the people that make up the Team — from the chefs to the mechanics to the riders — discussing all the little things that make Team Sky one of the world’s best.
These are the little things that help Team Sky make big things possible. Show us what your little things are using the hashtag #doingthelittlethings

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
