How do I know that the new Le Col x McLaren Project Aero long-sleeve jersey is faster than a skinsuit? Because I’ve wind tunnel tested it myself – and it’s not often I can say that.

If I had a pound for every time I’d written in a review “but obviously it’s impossible for us to verify these claims” I’d, well, be able to afford a wind tunnel session. So when Le Col invited journalists to the wind tunnel at the Silverstone Sports Engineering Hub to test it against our own kit it was an opportunity I couldn’t miss.
