The greatest riders thrive in the worst weather. Taking stormy training rides while others stay in bed or attacking when wind, rain or snow makes rivals think twice.
Bernard Hinault in the 1980 Liege-Bastogne-Liege, King Kelly at Roubaix in 1986, Armstrong World Champion in Oslo in 1993. All heroic performances in appalling conditions. Is the weather looking bad today? Get out and ride.
