Do you know what an echelon is? Just as geese fly in a ‘V’ shape, so teams of bike riders follow the same pattern to achieve maximum aerodynamic efficiency. Watch any professional bike race and you will see riders fan out across the road to the side and behind each other. This is called riding in an echelon.
Glasgow has its own Team Echelon and McKay Flooring are their proud sponsors. The lads make their racing debut next month on the gruelling Etape Caledonia (16 May) and you can follow their training and adventures on the Team Glasgow Echelon blog. We wish them the best of luck.
