#MyCyclingWeekend with Decathlon - Full Gas to the Tour!

The first of the special Tour de France prizes to be won this weekend

Nobody panic, but there's only a week left before the start of that bike race in France.

We're heading as quickly as possible towards our favourite race of the year and it's not just us that have been going rather fast this week!

You might not know this, but road.cc sponsors our local University's cycling team.

One of their riders, Dan Martin (not the UAE pro) has only gone and ridden to a brilliant 25th place at the British U23 National TT Championships! So we'd like to kick off #MyCyclingWeekend by saying a huge well done.

We'll probably opt for a slightly more comfortable-looking position on the bike this weekend, an maybe even stop for a slice of cake.

If you're heading out then snap a picture on your ride and upload it to Instagram, including the hashtag and @DeCathlonUK_Cycling in your caption. That will enter you into the pot, giving you the chance to win a pro TdF team bottle

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
