My name is Mathew Mitchell, 30-something from Staffordshire, UK. Over the last few years I've got more and more into cycling, from the first innocent Sportive events to Audaxes, Go-Races, British Cycling racing and now Time Trials.

      That’s quite alright! Pro cycling has many different layers to delve into and a huge amount to learn.

      Have you got found any favourite riders/teams yet?

      • Steve says:

        Not yet I am thinking I will really like Cyclocross especially seeing as just got a new cyclocross bike! Not to sure on teams yet but I know the Belgian teams are pretty impressive

          That’s something I’ve never actually had a go at other than just messing around with my road bike going across fields – I try and avoid the actual muddy stuff! Certainly this time of year the Belgians do very well in their own backyard and everyone expects the Quickstep guys to win every race going.
