'You feel proud to wear the national jersey and almost like you cannot hide in races. I like a little bit of extra pressure and feeling like I need to do my jersey justice.'
Lizzie Armitstead, Cycling
As the Womens Tour starts today I though a quote from one of our top cyclists would be in order and I think at whatever level you compete at pulling on your club colours does give you a boost and makes you want to step up to the mark and give everything you've got. Especially those events which are solitary by nature - you know you are in a team.
Live, Laugh, Enjoy
