Letter from the editor

All eyes will be on Yorkshire this weekend as the two stage races once again highlight the region and all it has to offer. And it’s not just the domestic teams taking on WorldTour riders that everyone will be keen to see.

We have the official unveiling of Team Ineos, as Britain’s richest man Jim Ratcliffe — and all the environmental controversy that surrounds his company — enters the sport. Will Ineos win their first race as Sky did? Will they still be wearing black kit? And will a name change allow them to move on from the scandals that beset Team Sky?

What we do know is there will be a new Pinarello Dogma waiting outside the bus for the riders on day one, although at the time of going to press the Italians were being tight-lipped with the details on just how new the new bike is.
We’ll also get to see a dress rehearsal 
for Harrogate’s World Championship finishing circuit, as both the men’s and women’s pelotons will do a lap of the spa town on stage two. And of course we’ll see local star Lizzie Deignan return to racing 
on home soil.

It’s just a shame that with so much going on I won’t have time to ride my bike while I’m up there.
