Ian Stannard, 25 today.

Often to be found setting pace at the head of the Peloton, this guy is a BEAST!!! Like a freight train at full tilt, km after km he pulls the race along. I’d love to see how much food he gets through at the end of the day!

And Geraint Thomas, 26 today.

An integral part of the Sky lead out train, he is also a track cycling World champion and Olympic gold medal winner. As well as his accomplishments on the track he is also turning into a talented road racer…

As I’ve already mentioned in a earlier post, I think Geraint has the potential in the future to win at least one of the Classics and maybe more?!

Happy Birthday gentlemen!
