As we've seen in previous videos, aero is extremely important in road cycling. The offseason is where many riders will head to the wind tunnel or velodrome to see if they can be made faster through positional tweaks.

For Team Sky it's certainly no different. They took to the velodrome to test their new signings for 2016, but also Geraint Thomas, who in fact hasn't undergone any testing since before the Olympic Games in London 2012.

'G' has a number of industry experts at his disposal at Team Sky, including aero guru Robby Ketchell as well as a team of biometric testers and physios to create a perfect balance between aerodynamics, comfort and pedalling efficiency.
