The amateurs who cycled the 2021 Tour de France
What's it really like to ride the Tour de France? We get the lowdown from Guy Wolstencroft who was part of a team of amateur riders who completed every stage of the Tour a week ahead of the pros. The Tour 21, as it’s known, covered every single km that the pro teams covered. But they also raised 1£m for Cure Leukaemia charity in the process.
Hayden Wilde: From XTERRA to the Olympics in four years
Hayden Wilde will be the first to tell you the last 3-4 years have been 'surreal'. The New Zealand athlete switched to triathlon from off-road endurance events after Rio 2016, in a bid qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. When the Covid outbreak began in 2020, the young New Zealander wouldn't have foreseen not racing abroad for 22 months. He made the most of his time, becoming 2x National Champion in the 5,000m. He returned to triathlon action with a 5th place finish at WCTS Leeds 2021 and is one to watch at the Tokyo Olympics and beyond.

Marten Van Riel: The Belgian triathlon star proving the doubters wrong
Marten Van Riel is on a mission to win an Olympic medal in triathlon, before stamping his authority over the Ironman distance. The 28-year-old surprised himself by qualifying for the Rio Olympics and going on to finish in 6th position. He won Super League's Arena Games twice in 2021 and finished 3rd at WCTS Leeds, which was won by Alex Yee. He's part of Joel Filliol's squad and trains alongside his fellow countryman Jelle Geens, as well as Vincent Luis, Mario Mola and Jake Birtwhistle. And keep it quiet, but he reckons the Belgian team are going to be flying under the radar in the mixed relay, with Marten and Jelle alongside Valerie Barthelemy and Claire Michel.
How do you cope with a DNF on race day?
