With large chunks of the northern hemisphere currently experiencing heavy snowfall, we thought we'd take a pictorial look back at some of the snowy moments endured by the peloton.
Early-season races are often blighted by bad weather, particularly when they hit higher altitudes. Snow and ice can linger on in the mountains right into the start of summer - and can sometimes shape a race.
Occasionally, snowfall will lead to a race being cancelled or re-routed, but sometimes the riders just have to dress up against the elements and get on with it. A rider than can endure freezing conditions and stay upright can prevail.
And there's no denying that snowy scenery can make for a stunning backdrop for photos.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
