These are heady times for Welsh cycling. Last week, it was about the men, with Geraint Thomas giving the principality its best ever professional men’s result, winning the Critérium du Dauphiné. This weekend, women professional cyclists take centre stage, with the Ovo Women’s Tour finishing in Colwyn Bay on Sunday after a hilly run through Snowdonia, and a possible Welsh favourite in the field in Dani Rowe.
Rowe, who hails from Hampshire but took Welsh nationality last year, finished a close second at the Women’s Tour de Yorkshire in late April, reflecting the progress since she made the switch from the track, where as Dani King she won gold at the London Olympics in 2012 and three world championships, all in the team pursuit.
