Froome, The Rainbow Bands and Paul Ashman Cycling

So a wheely good welcome to you all from Paul Ashman Cycling and I hope you are all still enjoying these last bits of Summer and sun and getting out on your bikes. 
This last week to ten days has been exciting in many ways. Chris Froome delivered his second Grand Tour of the season and did so in style. Taking the Vuelta‘s red jersey on stage three he never looked back and troubled securing the victory. This was his first Vuelta victory but I think not his last. He has five Grand Tours to his name now and the big question I think on everyone’s lips is will he take on the Giro to give him the chance of the clean sweep of all three and join that elite club of riders who have done that. Only time will tell but at the moment he clearly is the rider of the moment and the one to beat in a Grand Tour stage race. 

So this brings us on to the World Championships and the rainbow bands. Yesterday saw young Tom Pidcock smash the Junior time trial to take gold and add this to his growing collection of accolades and all at only 18 years old! What next is the question but you can be sure he has a superb future ahead of him in the cycling world. Today is men’s time trial day and clearly a shootout between Froome and Doumolin. The climb near the end I think will play it’s part and it’s down to who can keep that momentum to the end, whatever we are in for a treat and of course still the road race to come on Sunday. Keep tuned and let’s see who takes the rainbow bands. I’m going for Froome today and Kwiatkowski on Sunday. 

Finally an update on Paul Ashman Cycling. Things are going full swing for me at the moment with the new business taking off really well. New projects have come in already and a wide range of activities taking place throughout the week. It’s early days but I feel it’s going to grow and become a worthwhile business venture that will give many access to bikes and fuel my passion for the love of cycling. 

Until next time one and all happy cycling, stay safe and see you soon.
