    Team Sky’s Ian Boswell cools down on the trainer after a Tour of California stage patiently. As if pedalling for five hours wasn’t enough.

Throughout March and April, Belgium dominates the pro calendar, with its cobbled and hilly Classics, a series of unforgiving one-day races. If your idea of cycling is of featherweight climbers floating up and over sunny alpine passes, come to Belgium for a different view; here you’ll be served a dollop of mud on cobbles, and a rainy battlefield of competition between 85kg sluggers.
