New Hour Record, Alberto Contador + Unicycle Mania! - The GCN Show Ep.96

Published on November 4th 2014


Dan, Simon and Matt bring you 12 minutes of sofa-based cycling wisdom. It's the GCN show! Follow GCN: Matthias Brändle is the new hour record holder, but it was close - he managed 700m more than Jens Voigt did a couple of weeks ago. Brändle's gear was 1 sprocket smaller than Voigt's - was that the difference? Elsewhere, Alberto Contador won the prestigious Velo D'Or, plus good news for women's racing with Cervélo partnering with Velocio sports and a new stage race at the USA Pro Challenge. In cyclocross, Sven Nys was frustrated twice over the weekend, but Matt Stephens had a better week - he only stacked it once! Also in this show: Tech (retro and modern) Strava, club of the week and a bit of one-wheeler action. Don't miss it. Buy GCN Cycling Kit!
