Could graphene be the future of bike design? With rumoured 350g frames that allow more flexibility in design, we think it could well be.

How about aerodynamics? We all know that sitting on helps you out, but, according to some new research from Professor Marco Belloli and colleagues at Politecnico di Milano, you could be helping out when you sit on too. Win/Win, really.

In racing news, the Tour de France, Tour de Pologne and Thuringen Rundfahrt have (obviously) provided some excellent racing – do let us know your highlight down in the comments.

We also have your usual favourites; comment, tweet and caption of the week.
