The world of cycling, which is dominated by the likes of Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins, is a world apart from that of other sports.
There is a certain amount of respectability in the cycling world, with the likes the Tour de France, the Vuelta a Espana and the Tour of Britain all being held every four years.

The sport is a great exercise in endurance, with riders having to work hard to maintain the same level of performance.
