Do Cobbles Have A Place In The Tour de France? | The GCN Show Ep. 288

Welcome to the GCN Show! This week Ollie and Dan discuss whether cobbles have a place in the Tour de France or are they simply too dangerous. We also look at the smallest power meter ever, the most are bike ever, two world record attempts, three hour record attempts and zipless jerseys. Lots to cover!

AI Ultra-Aerodynamic Bike:

This week, we learnt that cobblestones in Grand Tours create chaos, carnage, excitement, emotion, drama, pain, blood, sweat and tears. Stage 9 of this years race saw riders tackle 156.5km from Arras de Citadel to Roubaix including 15 cobbled sectors totalling 21.7km’s. Porte crashed out, Degenkolb’s stage win meant so much to him that he was brought to tears, Bardet suffered a million mechanicals and almost every GC rider had to, at some point, had to make a manic chase after crashing or being held up by one.

Are Zip-less Jersey the next big clothing innovation? Dan Martin produced a superb attack on the Mur de Bretagne to win stage 6 of the tour and did so while wearing a new jersey that didn’t have a zip. The new jersey is from UAE Team Emirates kit supplier champion systems and is designed to be more aerodynamic and lighter with a special fabric to maintain breathability.

GCN Vs The Angliru: The GCN Presenter Challenge – With GCN en Español!

The Angliru is feared as the hardest climb in professional cycling. To welcome our new Spanish-language channel, GCN en Español, we decided it was time for another presenter challenge.

Subscribe to our NEW channel, GCN en Español:
Get exclusive GCN gear in the GCN shop!

We are launching an all new channel for road cyclists, who speak Spanish. That’s right, GCN en Españ ol has officially arrived. But not only that, GCN is growing too, with a larger presenting team to help bring more videos, longer videos, and crucially, even better videos.

To celebrate this expansion, and particularly our new Spanish language channel, we’ve come out to the beautiful Asturias region in Spain, to go for a nice gentle ride so you can get to know your new presenters.

The Angliru is 13km long, and at an average gradient of 9.8% it’s clearly steep. However, those stats hide it’s real dark side. Half of the climb is well over 10%, including 3km that average 23%. The record stands at 41 minutes 55 and is held by Roberto Heras from the Vuelta in the year 2000. Most recently, Chris Froome rode up in 44:36 in 2017.

With ramps of up to 24%, it's harder than anything seen in the Tour de France and is always decisive when used in the Vuelta a España. Alberto Contador and Chris Froome have featured strongly when it was last used.

Although the average gradient of the climb is only 10%, this gives a false impression. The hardest parts come in the final half of the climb, which features brutal ramps of up to 25%.

We really hope that you enjoy this, our latest, and hardest presenter challenge. Make sure you like and SHARE this video and that you head over to GCN en Español and subscribe!

Tour de France, Tour of Austria & Giro Rosa | The Cycling Race News Show

In the GCN Racing News Show this week we talk through the winners and losers from the first week of the Tour de France. Plus, there’s a dominant performance as the Giro Rosa hits the Zoncolan and a week of wins for Bahrain Merida at the Tour of Austria.

It’s been a dramatic first week of the Tour de France, we’ve absolutely loved bringing you daily highlights on Facebook, and as we hit the first rest day, we thought we’d go through some of the winners and losers from the first 9 days. Before that though, we want your opinion on the cobblestones - do they have a place in the Tour de France, yes or no? Take the poll at the top of the screen and give your reasoning in the comments, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Entertainment at it’s best, or simply too dangerous?

We were also delighted to have highlights of the Giro Rosa with Marty McDonald and our very own Emma Pooley, and what a race that was. It was dominated by two teams, Sunweb and Mitchelton Scott. In fact, every single rider on the Sunweb lineup held a leaders jersey of some sorts on at least one day - that’s quite a record!

The Tour of Austria, a tough 8-day race which doesn’t get the attention it deserves, coinciding as it does with the Tour de France. It was a pretty amazing week for Bahrain Merida. Matej Mohoric outsprinted teammate Visconti to win stage one, his first as Slovenian national champion, but Visconti himself went on to win three stages in total. Their 5th stage win came courtesy of Antonia Nibali. His situation almost mirrors that of the Tour of Austria, in that his career is overshadowed by that of his brother Vincenzo, but stage 7 marked his first professional victory at the age of 25, and one that was clearly very popular amongst his teammates.

Top 5 - Road Cycling Trends 2018

Next year’s bikes are going to be stiffer, lighter, and 'more perfect' than ever before. Or are they? Here are the five current trends we think you'll see more of next year.

How To Pedal | Cycling Technique

Pedalling comes naturally, for the most part. But there are things you can do to make your pedal stroke more efficient.
Click here to subscribe to GCN:

Professional cyclists rarely think consciously about pedalling in circles, and neither should you - your natural pedal stroke is probably the best.

Where the pros have the edge is a well-developed flexibility, allowing their muscles to move freely through the full pedalling range. Regular stretching will go some way to giving you that flexibility too.

Cadence drills can help maintain your efficiency even when churning up hills, and even thinking about saving energy by keeping your upper body steady will help in the long run.

Is Melbourne Cycling Better then Sydney?

S2 E34 || SUBSCRIBE:

It has been hard to find a weekend to make this happen, but I'm delighted we managed to finally do it. The NEROKOM Racing guys who are based in Victoria have really developed a great team, Sam, Leigh and Chris K have had some great results, but more then that it's great to see them develop their own team culture.

Saturday's ride was something Leigh organised and I have to say it didn't disappoint. I can see why locals rave about the Dandenings, and I feel like I've only just touched the surface.

Sunday and Sam organised for us to head out to the Footscray Cycling Club northern combine handicap. All the controversy aside, I'm delighted we made the effort to get out there ... even if that was just for the post match Pizza.

Finally guys, keep the feedback coming in regards to the live show. We are well and truly over the technical difficulties of the first few episodes, so please join us in the live chat for the next episode.
