So, it’s been a while since I last put up a post here on Sweat ‘n Gears. The past few months I have been with work – a new international role that I have. As such, finding time to work on the blog has been a little hard. But making the most of a day off from work, I thought I would write up a few posts.

Last week saw the 10th edition of The Tour of Britain take place. The race had many big names take part including the likes of Mark Cavendish, Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins, and Garmin’s Dan Martin, to name but a few. And on Sunday the race concluded with Bradley Wiggins taking the overall honours!

One video from the event that really caught my attention was this one from the AN Post Chain Reaction team. It stems from the day Sam Bennett took the win on Stage 5. You can see (and feel) team manager, Kurt Bogaerts, well up with emotion when he hears that Sam took the win.  Enjoy the clip!

The guys at NeilPryde bikes have a competition on the go whereby contestants become evangelists for the company. In return, the person gets to ride a NeilPryde bike (which one is not known) for a whole year. Plus, they get a stack of other goodies etc from the company throughout the year. Clever marketing tactic to help promote a brand that is breaking its way into the world of cycling!

Anyway, I decided to enter. Here is my video entry:
