Punctures and potholes - Peter White's April blog

Our CW5000 blogger Peter White reacquaints himself with the art of road-side puncture repairs.

When I raced as a Junior I remember going through a phase of having a run of punctures, race after race. I was riding on tubular tyres so I got quite good at using a needle and thread with all the repairs I was having to do. I don’t ever recall having a  puncture on a training ride, just whilst racing.
