Cycling Weekly Fakenger team at Rapha Roller Race

Following the withdrawal of the banker’s team from the Rapha Roller Race (obviously those cats are too fat), Cycling Weekly has begged to be allowed to enter a team of ringers, sorry, journalists. Amongst their number is the messenger formerly known as Nelly, a multi-alleycat winner and double Rollapaluza semi-finalist.

Which begs the question: is he a ringer or just a fakenger?

I guess the (possibly shocking) truth will be revealed on Saturday.

The full line-up is:

Steve Calland
Mike Hawkins
Simon Richardson
Sir Nellington Webster

I think I am right in saying that Mike Hawkins is the Shopping Columnist and Simon Richardson is the TV listings editor. Or maybe I just made that up. I can’t remember. Steve Calland is definitely a ringer; he clearly goes out on training rides and probably shaves his legs too.
