Published on July 10th 2018


Welcome to the GCN Show! This week we are celebrating Peter Sagan as one of the greatest riders of all time, a true G.O.A.T.. Ollie and Si are at Eurobike bringing us the hottest new tech in the industry, where we learnt a chainless bike is more efficient. And finally, we are reminded how tough cyclists are, especially pro Lawson Craddock.

Emma pulls out the graphs to show just how good Sagan really is! You could ride in the pro peloton! In theory, at least. This was a study done at Eindhoven University and brought to our attention by Andrei Loghin. They placed 121 mannequins on bikes in a wind tunnel and tested exactly how much less air resistance you experience. And at the sweet spot, they reckon, you’ll only encounter 5% of the air resistance that you would if you were riding in the same conditions alone. Interesting! Let us know if you think Sagan is the greatest of all time.
