Cycling’s Biggest Game Changers, For Better Or For Worse? | GCN Show Ep. 480

Published on March 22nd 2022


On Saturday, Matej Mohorič won Milano-Sanremo in stunning fashion, quite literally dropping down the iconic Poggio descent to victory. He dropped his rivals, his chain (briefly) and most notably his seatpost in a game changing innovation for road racing. He later proclaimed he’d “destroyed cycling”. We look at this game changer and other big tech advancements, and discuss if they changed cycling for better or worse?
