Forget Paris-Nice, forget Tirreno-Adriatico, forget Strade Bianche. Only one thing happened this week of note, really, and that was Visma-Lease a Bike debuting their new Giro helmets, and the furore that followed it.

The first inkling came on social media on Monday morning, as the Giro Aerohead II was unveiled for Tirreno’s stage one time trial, and it hasn’t really stopped all week. The launch was quickly followed by a shot across Giro’s bows from the UCI, who announced that they were going to review all time trial helmets, because in their opinion everything was getting too out there.
