This week Roger tells you why you all should be making cyclo-cross part of your winter campaign.

When I was young, it was a conscious decision I made to continue cyclo-cross and I carried it on as a professional as well. It gives you invaluable bike handling skills that definitely helps you to cope with anything bunch riding on the road can throw at you. It’s also a good way to maintain motivation in the deep winter months. When everything goes quiet, there’s not so many people asking how you are getting on, how the training’s going but you’ve got this little weekly test that will tell you how you’re progressing. So, in short, skills, motivation and it’s fun, why wouldn’t you?
