That’s one way to make your turbo session more interesting…
Ever wondered what cyclists get up to during the off-season? Team Sky rider Geraint Thomas headed in to BBC Radio 1’s Scott Mills Show for a round of Innuendo Bingo.
For anyone who’s unfamiliar, the premise is that a guest sits opposite Mills’s co-presenter Chris Stark, they fill their mouths with water, listen to some funny clips from television and radio, then when laughing the water is projected over the other person.
Thomas can be seen fully kitted, astride his Tour de France bike in a static trainer… possibly the most interesting indoor training session the Welshman has had for a while.
Wiggins’s attempt at the Longest Lap
Now a staple of any Revolution track meeting, the Longest Lap is certainly a crowd pleaser.

However, have a look at what riders in Manilla, Philippines, have to contend with on their ride to work.

With anyone from pros to new riders sat astride very expensive bikes dressed in the latest performance clothing, we set out to discover just how much speed you can buy.

Tempted by ‘cross this winter?
The cyclocross season is well underway but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to give it a crack. For anyone who’s interested in getting muddy this winter, here’s our guide to cyclocross bikes.
Finally, here’s a look at multiple downhill world champion Rachel Atherton’s scars from her career so far.
Her own favourite scars came from where she had a nerve removed from her leg and inserted in her shoulder. Blimey.
