Published on September 8th 2015


Is Pauline Ferrand-Prevot the ultimate all-round cyclist? And, is cycling actually too expensive? Click here to subscribe to GCN: Pauline Ferrand-Prevot won the mountain bike world XC world championship at the weekend, making her the current road, mtb xc and cyclo cross world champion. There's no argument that she is currently the greatest, but could she be the greatest all-round cyclist of all time? Comments below. A while back, we debated whether or not cycling was too expensive. Well, we're pleased to report that, like we said at the time, the answer is 'no, it doesn't have to be'. As always, let us know your thoughts on that down in the comments. The Vuelta a España has had an eventful few weeks, and it now looks like a battle between Esteban Chaves, Tom Dumoulin, Joaquim Rodriguez and Fabio Aru. Who's going to win? We're really not sure. The Tour of Britain has been an effective preparation race for the world championships for the last few years. Czech rider Petr Vakoc took a great solo win there on Monday. With thanks to Jim Gadd for the time trial images. Head over to his site for more info on the new champion. As always, get in touch with your #WelcomeGCN and #GCNEpicRide entries.
