WSS: Eugene Laverty gets on his bike

Honda ace takes to pedal power on the hills of Majorca

WORLD Supersport racer Eugene Laverty has racking up the miles: this time on a pedal bike on the roads of Majorca.

"I arrived in Majorca on February 3 for one week's cycling before I head off to Australia for the first round of the season," Laverty told Cycling News.

"The Tour of Majorca begins on Sunday so we've been seeing a few of the pros out and about on the road this week, just today we saw the Milram team. I don't think I'm quite ready to grab onto their shirttails just yet though."

Asked what he most enjoys about cycling, the Honda rider replied "I enjoy the winding picturesque mountain roads, they were amazing in Granada. In professional cycling it's fascinating how much goes on that we don't see at home. The guys at the top are analytical; Armstrong and Cavendish are ultimate perfectionists."
