Cycling commentator, Rouleur columnist and editor of the Road Book Ned Boulting is, like many of us, figuring out how to continue working in unprecedented times. How is he filling the days indoors? Will the mighty Road Book be a narrow tome next year? And why has he deleted his Twitter account, just when everyone else is using it more than ever?
Nathan Haas, meanwhile, is in lockdown in Girona. The Cofidis rider, who was caught up in the UAE Tour quarantine, is working out indoors despite not knowing when racing might resume. Keeping the drive alive is the big test for all professional cyclists right now, he tells Ian Parkinson. But thankfully, he’s making silly videos to keep us entertained in the meantime. Zumba on bikes, anyone?
Leopard print bibshorts and rock’n’roll form the theme for the latest Desire shoot. Stuart Clapp explains why we set fire to a helmet. POC, if you’re listening, sorry. It won’t happen again.
And Stu’s mate Dan does turbo training in his pants. Use your imagination. Actually, don’t.
