Luke Rowe's off-season revealed in his new column

Team Sky’s Welsh Classics specialist and Cardiff Devils ice hockey fan Luke Rowe will be writing a regular weekly column for Cycling Weekly in 2017

So a cyclist’s off-season is something any rider looks forward to after a hard season on the bike and months of saying, “Ah, I better not do that/eat that/drink that.” Then finally comes the end of the season and the final race, which for me has more often than not been the Road World Championships.

After that the brain instantly changes to relaxed, party mode for a month until you’re straight back to the grind and banking the miles. For 11 months of the year it’s full gas in all aspects of life, whether training, racing, dieting or time away from home.
