A few dates for your diary

This month we’ve got the Tour Down Under to look forward to – a bit of early season sunny racing for the pros – then there’s a bit of a lull until the Spring Classics (some of my favourite races) kick off in March. In preparation, I did a very Flandrian style 100km ride this morning through the…
