Training camp videos are molto alla moda at the moment, and here’s one from recently launched women’s outfit Wiggle Honda following their recent visit to Italy, where team members got the chance to ride together for the first time and also visited supplier Fizik’s factory.

Put together by Cyclevox, the short video includes the thoughts of team owner and manager Rochelle Gilmore as well as Dani King, Laura Trott, Anna-Bianca Schnitzmeier and two-time road world champion Giorgia Bronzini, who last week won the GP Padova.

Interestingly, also featured is Paul Manning, coach to Great Britain’s women’s team pursuit squad, with all three of the riders who took gold at London 2012 – Trott, King and Joanna Rowsell – now riding for Wiggle Honda, his presence reflecting how British Cycling works with supported riders throughout the year and not just when they are on national team duty.

Meanwhile, the team kit, made by Wiggle's in-house brand dhb, has now gone on sale at Wiggle – it’s available in women’s fit only, to the apparent chagrin, according to some tweets we’ve seen, of some men who would like to show their support for the squad.

I have asked and asked about this kit, I would wear that over most men's teams....

I have also asked about their team hoodie, I would love to show my support for woman's cycling. It seems they are not interested Crying
