The Sky's the Limit for Planet X Rider Magic Minting

They say "Cometh the hour, cometh the man" as the enfant terrible of the Workshop roads the self proclaimed best rider at Planet X,  Alex "Magic" Minting" sprinted to victory in Sunday's Ray Levers Trophy road race.

Minting is a rider with a point to prove. So far overlooked by Sky team supremo, the ex-Planet X sales director Dave Brailsford, this was a victory that meant so much more to the troubled youngster.  Whether his post race victory scream of "stick that in yer pipe and smoke it baldy" was aimed at Sky boss Brailsford or in-house Planet X wheelbuilder father Mark Minting cannot be determined, but rest assured it was a victory that meant a lot.
