Racy Racer

One of the most Insta-famous cyclists in the world, 22-year-old Dutch professional Puck Moonen currently rides for Lotto–Soudal Ladies. Unfortunately, she’s more well known for her looks than her major results so far. She even featured in a recent UK newspaper article which proclaimed that this ‘gorgeous cyclist sends temperatures soaring with racy Instagram snaps’. Hopefully she will rack up the results as well as the taps and clicks in the 2019 racing season. Here she is enjoying a winter training session in Mallorca, Spain, on the famous Sa Calobra climb.

Winter shredding

We all think about it, he does it: Peter Sagan‘s Bora Hansgrohe teammate Marcus Burghardt gets in the training kilometres with his winter clothing being used to full effect.

Bad weather doesn’t exist, only wrong clothing. I stay warm and dry with @sportful .

Instagram cool kids

You can’t start too young, they say. Here’s a mini-peloton to inspire parents (and kids). They look ready for the Tour de France 2038!

One for the weight weenie nerds

A pair of brakes (yes, pair) that weigh 155g, including pads and hardware. Ciamillo are famous for their weight weenie speciality brakes. Some claim they are so light that some design is compromised, but we say: “give them a brake.”

Miguel Indurain

Just how cool does Miguel Indurain look in this shot? It probably dates from around 1996, when he won an Olympic gold medal in the time trial.

Riding life

Great photography by an amateur cyclist entering the cycling tips photography competition. You can enter too, if you check out the link in the post.

Daniel Oss

We’re not quite sure why Daniel Oss is wandering through the yellow flowers, with his bike, but it does make a supercool shot.

Horsing around

A pony in the peloton makes for extra-sharp bike skills, especially as we can see the four-legged furball isn’t the best at going around corners…
