The 2021 bike racing season kicked off with a rapid start, with some monster speeds in the the UAE Tour, but has cycling always been this fast or has it been a slow development? Dan and Si share why they think cycling is faster than it has ever been. We also take a look at an incredible story of a 40 year round the world cycle and we bid Jeremy Powers a fond farewell (sort of). Subscribe to GCN+ for cycling as you have never seen it before!
