More advert action from Victoria Pendleton

What do you do when you've pushed your bike up that hill and munched your way through a packet of Hovis? If you're the divine Ms Pendleton you get your lycra on and wash down that bread all with some Gatorade. 

 

Well that's if some Danny MacAskill type scamp doesn't steal it off you leading to some cycling hijinks as Victoria gives chase, he's got the tricks but she's got the speed and as we all know crime doesn't pay… well, not in adverts anyway. Hopefully I haven't spoiled the ending for anyone there.

 

Actually the impressive urban jumping about stunts are courtesy of another of the UK's top young trials riders, Ali Clarkson. The "making of" vid is quite interesting too, where you'll learn that it's just as well doing up your lid isn't part of the start for any Olympic cycling disciplines. Ah, I've rather spoiled that ending too… sorry.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Yes because Gatorade is a brilliant performance sports drink and not just a load of sugar at all  3

@david french; what do you want from your brilliant perfomance drinks? Sugar and a bit of salt does me fine, bonus if it tastes alright.

Something that is designed to improve my performance rather than just taste really sweet.
