Published on August 15th 2017


It's that time of the week again - the GCN Show is back and we've got a healthy serving of controversy following on from last week with some astonishing e-bike laws, the great sock length debate and perhaps the fishiest race in pro cycling...

We bring you the intriguing results from our Lance Armstrong poll, clearly still a hot topic πŸ”₯ We see the pro peloton display more than just bike handling skills this week, with some impressive dancing routines coming out of the Colorado Classic. That one wasn't expected... With an objective eye, Simon and Dan took a closer look into the great Sock Length Debate. The jury still seems to be out - what's your perfect length? Chapeau Bernhard Eisel for winning the KOM jersey at the Arctic Race of Norway. That and the half tonne of salmon that you claim as your prize 🐟 Tech Of The Week sees Simon having a play with the Inflite cyclocross bike from Canyon, because you know, 'cross is coming. Some interesting geometry changes in this new model to examine.

Keep going Mark πŸ‘Œ We have also heard the unfortunate news that Endurance Cyclist Sean Conway has had to pull out of his European record attempt due to injury. We're all hoping that you heal up soon! This week's #wattagebazooka goes to pro Rigoberto Uran for his domestique duties. Not to mention his incredible dance routine too.
