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!

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.
