Roadies Vs MTBers: Whatโ€™s The Difference & Whoโ€™s Best? | GCN Show Ep. 493

Published on June 21st 2022


This special edition of the GCN Show comes from the Global Bike Festival in Saalbach, Austria. The Austrian Alps are amazing for road riders or mountain bikers alike, so that got us thinking: what are the differences between these vastly different creatures? We discuss this and then pit Hank against GMBNโ€™s Blake in the ultimate challenge to decide whether roadies or MTBers are best!
