A Week is a Long Time in Cycling

A British Prime Minister once said that “a week is a long time in politics“, remarking how much can happen in the space of a few days, that fortunes can change and new stories come charging over the horizon.

I’ve been away for a week and return to find the European racing season has started, to see Alberto Contador has finally been informed of his ban, plus several other interesting background stories like Matt White’s curious departure from the Slipstream armada. As ever there’s always plenty going on and the racing season is now finally under way too.
