Thats great! Good to see a team trying new things to add a bit of positive publicity beyond the usual boring rubbish.

Just got back from hockey training and read this - checked out some already - excellent !

Cycling - not just a pastime or sport - free your soul on the open road.

Good move by the team, not keen on the Belgian commentary though!

Last night I would have considered trading a very loud baby for a really nice bike.

Poor Cav, having to listen to all that Flemish. He must have really hated Sky!
