Video: ŠKODA Skills – Training with Team Raleigh-GAC

Behind the scenes of the day at Hillingdon circuit

The training day at Hillingdon was led by members of Team Raleigh-GAC

Here’s the fourth and final video in a multi-part road cycling ŠKODA skills series featuring pro tips from members of the British Continental squad Team Raleigh-GAC. The series is running in conjunction with the ‘How to’ section from our sister magazine Cycling Plus.


It looks at ŠKODA’s long association with cycling and how the training day marked the start of the company being “useful” to cyclists in a different way to how things are now.

The ŠKODA skills series comes from a coaching day courtesy of Skoda at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in London, where six winners of a Cycling Plus competition were given a day’s tuition from the guys of Team Raleigh-GAC.
