Cillian Kelly

Cillian Kelly is GCN’s resident stat nerd. We keep him locked in the basement crunching numbers and searching for trivial cycling treasures. Every week we let him out so he can write his Stat Attack segment on our website. You may occasionally see him on our GCN videos when we make him ride his bicycle in uncomfortably challenging scenarios. He pretends not to like them but we all know that's not the case which is why we keep coming up with new things for him to try.
