    Santos Tour Down Under 2016 stage 5

    If we have been diligent in our offseason training, we have likely done some nice foundational work to build up our base fitness and functional threshold. But now it’s February and those gains might be stagnating. How do we build on this base fitness and also meet the needs of our riding goals?

    Ed Hood has moved on from Berlin to Copenhagen for the next and last '6 Day' of the 2015/16 season. By the sound of things the hard work was the drive from one velodrome to the other, but the 'circus' is all set up and the boards are vibration under the rider's wheels to the bongos, dernys, big motors and the music.

    Book Review: This kind of bicycle collection is different from other transportation museums and its personal quirkiness is deeply attractive because the history of the bicycle itself is nothing if not quirky. And the machines that are so beautifully featured in “Bicycling Through Time: The Farren Collection” must rank amongst the most illustrative specimens of that history.

    Name a frame builder with employees that have been with them for 40+ years… That list is even smaller when you add that the company is in the USA and is not producing frames in Asia. Lynskey Performance is uncommon.

    The victorious ride of Wout Van Aert, and all the other medal winners, at the World cyclocross championships in Zolder at the weekend were overshadowed by the finding of a motor in one of the bikes, and so there can only be one HOT subject for the 'Lee Lowdown'. Femke Van der Driessche's name will go down in the history books for all the wrong reasons.

    Lee has been keeping his eye on the happenings in Australia and Spain and we are sorry to say carnage and injury are involved. The outcome for the Giant-Alpecin team was not good, but could have been much worse. Simon Gerrans crashed but came out on top Down Under. Phil Liggett has also been in Australia, his crash was due to a very different fall, one from grace.
