It's inevitable. You will ride an e-bike, and in this week's GCN Show we'll tell you why. And maybe why you won't.

Racing updates are coming in thick and fast this week, with the very latest from the Tour of Spain, la Vuelta, where Chris Froome is still sitting pretty in red. It was a Dutch dominated Boels Rental Ladies Tour in Holland, with Annemiek van Vleuten taking top step, leading from the start with an impressive TT prologue. In the current Tour of Britain we saw Caleb Ewan take the first stage, whilst the second stage sprint was a little more controversial... On the less conventional racing front, we see multi-storey car park racing in New Zealand announced and the third round of the Red Hook Crit in Barcelona. This week's #WattageBazooka goes to the Superman himself, Miguel Angel Lopez of Astana, and our viewer entry from India on these 23% switchbacks. Ouch! Competition Time!
