The re­cent news that Colom­bian great Luis Her­rera has de­vel­oped skin can­cer, which he at­tributes to years of long days rac­ing in high tem­per­a­tures, has brought up a ques­tion I of­ten ask my­self: why doesn’t a sun cream brand spon­sor a cy­cling team?

Cor­rect me if I’m wrong but this hasn’t hap­pened be­fore. Surely it would do won­ders in pro­mot­ing skin health as well as boost­ing the brand’s sales. I re­alise there can be a lot of van­ity in cy­cling, es­pe­cially when it comes to tan lines, but health must come be­fore looks.

There is an abun­dance of sun cream brands and you’d think one of them must have thought about spon­sor­ing a team. With­out men­tion­ing any brands (I’m sure you can guess) I can eas­ily pic­ture a neat look­ing blue and yel­low team kit. I wish Luis Her­rera all the best in his re­cov­ery.

William, email the UK courts — as a way to gain the re­spect of other road users?
