This week has been all about the Six Day London, where some of the world's finest track cyclists took to the boards of the Lee Valley Velodrome, site of the Olympic triumphs of Team GB at London 2012.

Conquista favourite Dan McLay finished in the top ten and took over the Chain Reaction Cycles Points Jersey

Conquista was at the start and the finish today: take a look at our gallery below.

On another sultry September day, Conquista followed the pro peloton down the spine of Wales to be at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, Powys for the finish of stage 4 of the 2016 Tour of Britain.

Dylan Groenewegen of Team LottoNL - Jumbo took the win, narrowly beating friend of Conquista Dan McLay, riding this week for the Great Britain Cycling Team.

Conquista star blogger Mark McNally came in with the second group after a long, hard day in the saddle.

Take a look at a few images from the immediate aftermath of stage 4.
