I discovered this video today from Swiss band, The Legendary Lightness. Even though the music video is over 9-months old, it seems to do a great job capturing derny racing. For those not familiar with derny racing, it is where a track cyclists race against each other but they are all drafting their own motorbikes (or derny as it is referred to in the world of cycling). Very different to Keirin racing. It’s a tough form of racing especially due to the consistent high-speed the rider needs to maintain.

The song is titled “World Full Of You.”  Enjoy!

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!
