Back To Reality

Back To Reality

We've signed-up Team Wanty-Groupe Gobert (WGG) new boy Mark McNally - the lad from Liverpool with the heart of a Flandrian Lion!  Throughout the 2016 season Macca will keep us up to speed with his life inside the pro peloton.  WGG are a UCI Pro-Continental team who receive a healthy number of wildcard invites to some of the biggest and best bike races in the world.  Each week we will bring you a little insight into the highs and lows of being a young rider trying to make it to the top level of professional cycling.  This week - "Back To Reality" tells of Mark's shock of returning to a "normal people" life in Belgium after spending time with all his teammates at their first collective training camp in Alicante, Spain.
