Is Your Bike Holding You Back? | GCN Show Ep.389

Close ×

Is your bike actually holding you back? Is a new faster road bike the solution to faster rides? You might be surprised to hear that a new bicycle isn’t the answer. This week on the GCN Show Si & Dan are feeling their age, but recognise they can no longer blame the bike. Also, the Evereresting World Record is smashed again, Mathieu Van Der Poel loses a bike race to a teenager and Hank has an update on his big ride.
