- From Kenso, Maine
- [Boys] Welcome to the GCN Show!
- Welcome to the GCN Show, brought to you by Wiggle.
- This week we talk gravel, the super wheel,
Russian potholes, and we look back at the Amstel Gold race.
- Got loads of new stuff this week, haven't we?
Some tech of the week, we got new shade
new wheels, new tyres, and amazingly,
a new beer as well.
And there's a new giveaway
more prizes for you to win at home!
- As well as all that shiny new stuff,
we've got all your old favourites as well.
- New and old, new and old.
(upbeat intro music)
- This week in the world of cycling,
we saw the first ever women's cycle race
take place in Saudi Arabia.
47 women competed over a ten kilometre course
in the city of Jeddah.
When you consider that women were only allowed
to publicly ride bikes back in 2013,
this is a small but quite hopeful step forward
for a nation that is quite conservative.
- Yeah we also saw that if you spent seven hours
in the breakaway Ampstel gold,
then you can have quite a lot of food for you too,
because Lawson Craddock from EF Education First did that
and actually burnt get this, close to 7,000 calories
in the Ampstel Gold Race,
which equates to about 27 Big Macs.
- Whoa, that's a lot isn't it,
although I think I would go for 15 Big Macs
and leave the rest for chips, chocolate and beer.
- Yes a lot of it, yeah.
- Now we also learned this week that gravel is the new road.
- Or is it? Now there's several things
in the past few days that have led to that
and the catalyst for that kind of discussion.
First off, Mavic, they've launched
an all road range of products.
We have the Tro-Bro Lon the french race
that's run on a lot of farm tracks.
That got more exposure than most UCI 1.1 races
and then the Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride in California.
That's one of the best events on the calendar.
- That does look like a really cool event doesn't it?
I think the trend is clear.
Starting with the races
you've already mentioned Tro-Bro Lon
but then we've got Strade Bianche of course
which we've talked about on the show a few weeks back.
That has become one of the biggest
the most anticipated races of the season
by riders and spectators alike, even though
it's only in its 12th edition this year wasn't it?
- Yeah and the the white rose stages of the Giro d'Italia,
they're always really hotly anticipated.
- Gay-moh-ver-gun they added some gravel last year
in the form of those plook stratis didn't they?
- Yeah Omloop Het Hardland in Belgium.
Last year's podium, Mathieu van der Poel first
- Yeah and even close to home,
we've got the Rutland Milton C classic here in the UK
and that uses a whole load of farm roads too.
- Yeah that started out in 2005
and is now one of the biggest UK domestic events.
Believe it or not Matt actually podiumed
at that inaugural event before it got big.
- It was actually one of the biggest of all events in the UK
- We also had the inaugural Australian gravel bike
national championships and I must admit
I can see other countries follow suit there.
- Yeah they thought as though wouldn't it?
Now must admit I do like watching all the races
that we've just been talking about.
I like the spectacle that you get
from the dust all the dirt.
I like the extra degree of bike handling
that's required over the gravel roads.
And I also like the fact they look quite epic
and retro in some ways.
- Well if it's retro can gravel really be the new road
or are we just harking back to like a bygone era?
I mean before the advent of asphalt.
- That is a valid point isn't it.
I see where you're coming from there.
Because we know that the road riders' approach
don't really adapt their bikes much
to the gravel bike do they?
They just put slightly bigger tyres on perhaps.
But on the other side of the coin gravel bikes
are becoming quite a big thing amongst the general public.
But when you look at them I can't help but wonder
whether actually they're not too dissimilar in design
to the mountain bikes
that we used to race on back in the mid nineties.
- Yeah, bikes with no suspension whatsoever
and just clearance
for bigger tyres than road bikes basically.
- Yeah exactly, I mean the difference with gravel bias
is that generally you adopt drop handlebars
but on the other side of the coin,
there's John Tomac the legend raced with drop handlebars
in his first mountain bike didn't he?
The thing is though mountain biking
has changed dramatically since that Tomac era.
And I'm wondering whether the gravel bikes
have kind of just filled a void that was left behind.
- Yeah I know what you mean
but with the introduction of things like disc brakes,
it means that new gravel bikes have far more versatility
than the mountain bikes that me and you
were using back in the day.
And also many of them can accept standard road wheels
but with different tyre choices so six ties or slicks
and many could also accept 650b wheels
but with fatter tyres.
- Yes, so I actually did some riding
and a video using some gravel bikes
with exactly those wheel options
and it was quite interesting because you do then think,
you can have one bike at home that ticks a lot of boxes
and there's no doubt there's loads of competitive
or non-competitive shall I say
events out there at the moment
that accommodate gravel bikes,
not least the Canyon Belgian Waffle ride
that you talked about earlier.
That thing's got forty miles of gravel dirt tracks isn't it.
- Well there's the dirty Kanza as well
and somebody from that GCN team is gonna be riding there.
- They are?
- Katherine who runs the social media is gonna be riding
that event and guess what?
206 miles just gravel.
- It is isn't it.
Last years event though was won by Matt Stephens wasn't it?
- It wasn't me. I wasn't available.
- No I think people would've guessed
that you didn't were at 200 mile gravel event.
There's also the fact that the dirty Kanza
is only 13 years old and in the first edition
34 people turned up.
This year is gonna be 2,200.
- Wow and the L'Eroica events as well
they're getting increasingly more popular year on year.
But it's not just about more and more events is it?
Because gravel really is becoming well a proper thing isn't?
- It is and I think there are three reasons for that.
Firstly it's far quieter more peaceful
when you venture off road isn't it?
Secondly you get a heightened sense
of accomplishment and exploration.
And thirdly, there is a safety issue there
as well isn't there?
- Well I know where you're heading down
because roads are getting far more busier
and drivers let's face it are getting more distracted.
- Yeah I mean we're not shirking the issue here.
We know that there's a responsibility amongst us as cyclists
to educate and help the situation out there on the road.
But the fact is sometimes
it's quite nice to just venture off road
and not worry at all.
Plus there is the fact that if you want to gravel ride
to be social it most definitely can be.
(knock and thud)
- oh yeah, here's Katherine.
- Yeah Katherine. Come up.
I bet you're, you've got to be looking forward
to dirty Kanza.
- [Katherine] Yeah looking forward to it.
I mean I'm pretty nervous--
- I think we should get
- Come on, come sit - on the spot here.
- Shuffle up mate, just a little bit.
- Hi Katherine. - Hey.
- Sorry to get you in but we've been talking about
whether gravel is the new road,
and you'd be in a good position to tell us
because you must have been did a lot of training
for the Dirty Kanza.
Well I've certainly been riding my gravel bike a lot more
than my road bike so that'll probably give you
a bit of a insight your question, yeah.
- Do you reckon it'll be good idea
if we in the next few weeks
did a special ask GC anything, gravel special?
Would you up for it?
- Yeah I reckon that'd be good.
- I think that's a great idea.
Yeah one of us with Katherine and answering your questions
and all the things gravel
because she has built up a lot of experience in the gravel
bike over the last few months.
So leave all your questions
in the comment section down below.
We'll do that one in the next a couple of weeks?
- Yeah tell us about your favourite gravel rides
where you like to ride,
whether you like to ride it baggy clothing
or lycra as well
and if you don't really fancy riding on gravel
tell us why, I want to hear both sides of the argument.
- We do don't we?
Right so the answer from Katherine is yes.
Gravel is the new road, Matt?
- No I don't think gravel's the new road.
I think it's the new gravel.
- Nice answer Matt, typical Matt answer.
I think it's the nice addition
and option for some different riding when you want it.
- Bottom line is it's good fun.
- It's now time for cycling shorts.
- Can you reinvent the wheel?
Now many people have tried it
but Simon Chan claims to have done it
with what he calls the super wheel.
- It is power-assisted
but not through any kind of battery or modes of it,
rather it uses the rider's weight.
Now this technology has been four years in development
and they've been very tight-lipped
over exactly how it works in that time.
But they've given GCN some exclusive insight.
- [Matt] The system works
on the storage of action reaction force
caused by the weight of the user
in the upper section of the spring mechanism
continuously during rotation.
I.e, when the wheel is rotating in the clockwise direction
the mechanism starts to compress the springs
from the 9 to 3 o'clock of the rotation.
And the springs decompresses
from the 3 to 9 o'clock of the rotation.
- [Dan] It works like a lever mechanism
using the centre as the pivot
and then this converted energy
will be used to decrease the frictional force
in the opposite side of the wheel
and therefore facilitate the rotation.
- The current prototype provides around 30% assistance
and is quite heavy.
And that is something they are actually working on
but the production model they reckon provide
upwards of 50 percent assistance which is pretty remarkable.
- Hmm, I have to say that despite our explanation
I'm still none the wiser in my own head
because that's I'm not intelligent enough.
- Complex stuff. - to understand
something this complex.
But if it is gonna work,
it could be quite revolutionary couldn't it?.
Because although e-bikes are relatively green,
they still need charging,
there is still a battery there
that will need to be disposed at some point.
But this it's about as green as it it's gonna get isn't it?
- But it's gonna be something else
that the UCI probably gonna have to check as well.
- Yeah, that's very true.
All right back on to conventional wheels now
and a new world record which somehow we missed
when it was set a couple of weeks ago.
Back then Dr. Mitch Anson set a new 24-hour record
for an outdoor circuit where he averaged over 37 km/h
and rode 895.35 kilometres.
That beat the previous record set by Marco Belo
by just over 4 k's.
Now the monotony wasn't as bad as it sounds.
Fortunately for him he didn't have to do that
on a normal velodrome of 250 metres.
He still did on an outside track there
but on a circuit, New Victoria, Australia
of a 3.25 kilometres round.
But he still had to do 275 laps near that circuit.
And the distance well
and average speed just still blows my mind.
- That average speed is nuts isn't it?
Now on to potholes.
Something we have our fair share of here in the UK.
They're pretty annoying
but not as annoying as they are over in Russia.
This story is absolutely amazing.
It's in the Moscow Times they reportedly late last year
Andrei Chikin hits a pothole which was covered in snow,
so he didn't see it.
He broke three spokes and hit the deck himself.
Subsequently reported it and then was handed a fine himself
for damaging the pothole.
- That's just insane.
I mean cruelty to potholes?
That's a new one on me.
Now Uber who I've no doubt need no introduction to you
have acquired a dockless bike brand JUMP
in a deal reportedly worth
depending on which report you read
between 100 million and 200 million US dollars.
- Yeah it's in that vicinity somewhere.
Quite a large range.
- Quite a lot of money though isn't it?
- Jump's e-bikes is currently available
in 40 different cities across six countries.
But I'd imagine that number will grow quite quite rapidly
now they've got that investment from uber.
- You would've thought so.
Now from one performance gain to another.
Now the phrase some people never learn springs to mind
in this situation because a French professional rider
from Delko Marseille,
Remy Di Gregorio has provided a positive sample for EPO
from stage five of this year's Paris-Nice.
- Yeah, the 32 year-old has previously been thrown off
the Tour de France by his team at the time Cofidis.
He denied all of that doping at the time
and successfully sued his team.
So this kind of feels like karma.
Now I hope that team gets their money back.
GCN's wiggle of fortune.
Now you know the drill there are five prize up for grabs
one of which is a free beer for me.
Fingers crossed for that.
And then four different Wiggle voucher amounts
ranging from prize one which is 150 down to price four
which is 25 pounds.
Our lucky contestant this week from right in here in the UK
is Asa Botting, take it away Matt.
- I'll just go for a bit this stretch
because this is a big moment Dan.
- Three, two one, go.
And we are off.
What's it going to be this time around?
I think through odds it must be close to me getting my beer
- No, not really.
What we're gonna end up four - Come on.
Oh it's a three.
Oh it's gone to the top prize again.
Hundred and fifty pounds of vouchers
will be winging their way to you.
- Oh tremendous.
- If you'd like to enter yourself in
with a chance of being a contestant next week
just follow the link
which is in the description below this video.
- That was ace wasn't it?
Get that, ace, Asa?
- Hot on the heels of Oakley's new shades release
that we talked about on last week's show,
this time 100% have been at it
they've released some new shades as well.
- Yeah now there's something special
in the nose piece of this shade so it's dissimilar
to the Oakleys cause that was all about
basically stopping the glasses fogging up.
This is about opening up
or splaying your nostrils to improve breathing
and therefore performance.
- Yes these nasal strips
are nothing new in themselves are they?
And to the best of my knowledge the scientific jury's
still out on whether they actually work or not.
But nevertheless this is the first time we've seen
something like that incorporated into eyewear.
- Yeah they actually work with a couple of magnets.
Which actually stick onto your nose roughly about here
then you put the glasses over the top
there's other magnets on the glasses
and they actually then link in or clip
via magnetic force to the ones on your nose.
And you can actually adjust how much
you want your nostrils to open or splay on a little dial.
- Well I'm not sure I need my nose any bigger,
if I'm perfectly honest.
Or in fact--
- It's pretty optimised isn't it right now?
- Not sure I need my beer collection any bigger either
but I think it might be about to be.
- Wow - Here it is.
In celebration of the upcoming tour to Yorkshire,
Wharfedale brewery in combination with Fat Lad at The Back
have made this cycling related beer.
Can't do a Yorkshire accent Matt so over to you.
- Uh it's from Wharfedale.
It's called King O't mountains blonde.
- Very nice, it's a blonde ale
and it's 3.9% so quite light.
- Fat like the back mmm aye.
- I think we can finish now with the Yorkshire accent.
You were good at it but it's just.
- Although as much as it looks very very nice
it's not really tech is it?
- It's a new cycling related product.
- This is a new cycling related product
but it's not tech but it is nice.
- In that case maybe we should start talking
about the Mavic All Road range just released
which we mentioned at the start of the show.
- Yeah Mavic have launched this new range.
There's four wheel sets to be precise
called the All Road
because they're not just specifically for gravel.
First up is the pro UST with a hookless design on the rim
to make it easier to fit tubeless tyres.
And they come in at around 1600 grammes.
- The next level down we have the elite UST.
which have an all-aluminium hub
because the pro UST's are partly carbon.
At the next level down from that
we have the All Road Elite.
That one is available in 700c but also 650b
and that's the first time Mavic have made a 650b
specifically for road or gravel riders.
And then at the bottom end coming in
at a very reasonable price of 225 or $300
are the All Road USTs.
- Yeah now in addition to that,
they've also launched a range of gravel tyres
sort of all road tyres
but we're gonna take a closer look at those on Thursday
in the tech show, so keep an eye out for that.
- We just want to say again
how truly humbled we've been over the past week
with your response to the GCN Cycling Club.
The club is something we're all I think safe to say
truly very very excited about.
We're all gonna get involved
and we want you to play a big part in shaping the club too.
- Yeah at first the club is going to be all about
top-quality custom designed socks, just like these.
Now each founder member of the club
will of course receive these unique pair of founder socks
complete with the crest on the back.
And then every month you receive
your regular GCN club socks.
The very first wave of GCN cycling club socks
went in the mail just before the last weekend.
And it's been great to see so many of you
sharing your photos of your new GCN club founders socks
on Instagram already using the #GCNCC.
And now for some really really good news,
if you joined the GCN Cycling Club waiting list
there could be a very few select memberships left.
What that means is we'll be sending out emails
to the people on the waiting list over the next few days.
As soon as you get that email,
you better be quick and click on the link
because we just really don't have
that many memberships left at this stage.
If you didn't register your interest last week
we've put a link down in the description
where you can sign up
and be one of the first to hear
about the next wave of memberships.
And if you do join when you do get your socks
make sure you share them on Instagram using #GCNCC.
And thanks again for all of your support.
It's been amazing.
- The Amstel Gold race
doesn't actually take place in the Ardennes
but strangely it still traditionally
kicks off the Ardennes week
which continues on Wednesday with La Flche Wallonne
and then on Sunday
with the oldest classic of them all Lige-Bastogne-Lige.
Now both the men's and women's Amstel Gold races this year
were corkers weren't they?
- Yeah they're actually a tremendous
and in the women's race it was world road race champion
that's Chantal Blaak of Boels-Dolmans.
Who on home soil took the victory,
her second big win of the year.
Ahead of Sunweb's Lucinda Brand
and Amanda Spratt of Mitchelton-Scott.
- Yeah, in the men's race Michael Valgren
took what was his second classic of the season.
Riding for team Astana,
he of course won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad back in February.
But it was the manner of his victory
that was the most impressive really.
He was so cool and 4 Ks to go
he attacked a very select group of riders
which included a lot of the pre-race favourites such as
Alejandro Valverde, Peter Sagan and Julian Alaphilippe.
Took Kreuziger with him
who he duly dispatched in the sprint.
Meanwhile just behind was double winner of the event
Enrico Gasparotto in third.
- Yeah now Valgren isn't just winning big bike races,
he's winning a legion of new fans.
Just check out this tweet.
- Yeah that was one tweet of many
which came in to congratulate Michael Valgren after race.
I really think it shows somebody's character
by how many congratulatory messages you get after a race.
But it doesn't happen for every race
or for every rider does it?
- Not at all I think it's just why I like him.
He really is a likeable chap
and as I say it came from journalists,
fellow pros and fans alike.
So yeah, just great to see.
- Right over to the Commonwealth Games now.
Last week there was a huge disappointment
for young Melissa Lowther.
The 21 year old had made the 24 hour trip
over to the Gold Coast of Australia
to compete in the time trial but then couldn't start
because of an administrative error by team England.
- Yeah apparently had simply forgotten get this
just to put a tick in a box.
And they didn't realise until it was simply too late
so she could ride.
But imagine travelling halfway around the world
and not been able to ride.
I mean she would have been must been devastated
but thankfully she was able to compete in the road race
just a couple of days later
and finished a very very credible 9th place.
And that's a great contingency.
- That was impressive to get mentally back in gear
after that initial disappointment.
Before we finish racing news,
we normally leave the off-road stuff don't we
to GNBN these days but we've got to give
a massive GCN shout out to Annie Last, sister of Tom!
In fact Tom's more like brother of Annie these day isn't he?
- She got a gold medal
in the women's mountain bike cross-country event
at the Commonwealth Games.
So massive congratulations from all of us.
- Yeah and there wasn't even any gurning at all.
- There wasn't no.
- Giveaway time now and new giveaway
for our viewers this week.
In fact there will be five lucky winners announced
this time next week.
SIS had provided us with these prizes
and it is their endurance bundle.
All the details on how to enter
in the description below this video.
- Yeah now we've got three lucky winners to announce
from last week's Wahoo giveaway.
There is an Elemnt bolt.
And an Elemnt mini bundle.
So here they are.
Andreas Beutel of Germany you've won the Elemnt bundle.
Congratulations to you.
Next up Kiha Lee of the United States.
He won the Elemnt Bolt bundle.
And finally Jakub Tamchyna of the Czech Republic
has won the Elemnt mini bundle.
Well done to all of you.
We will be in touch shortly, if we haven't done so already.
And now if you haven't been lucky enough yet
to win one of our giveaways,
you should go over to the GCN tech channel.
There we had an unboxing of fabrics ALM
and you've got a chance there to win one of those as well.
It is time now for hack/bodge of the week.
It's on a sync with me now. - Yes, stereo.
- We've started this week
with this spotted in Hong Kong by Keith Savage.
There's a lot going on here.
And I always have no idea what's going on here.
Is that some kind of solar power?
- It is a solar-powered system
then we've got like a flag on top of what looks like a broom
but the most impressive bit attached
at back of the basket is almost like a some sort of temple
thing going on. But yeah - Blimey! I'm gonna say bodge.
What are you gonna say?
- Yeah Bodge I guess.
- Right next, sent in from Trent Green
over on Facebook messenger.
He's made a 3d printed sign to go in his bike cave.
- That is impressive.
- Yeah that's because it's got GCN logo, I'm gonna say hack.
- Yes hack it's a bit of a hack isn't it?
Very well done.
Next up is this from William Hardage on Facebook
and again a lot going on in this in this picture.
- Snowplough? - It looks as he's
in a very cold place.
But it's a chap who's adapted his bike
and turned it into
I think there's a little a place
for may be carrying hedgehogs in the back.
- Or chickens. - Or chickens.
Or yeah birds, small pets.
And there's a snow plough on the front.
- I bet it does a decent job.
Next up is this over on also on Facebook as well
from Zack Smith.
"My buddies cantilever brake to V brake conversion.
"Hack or Bodge?"
But that's amazing isn't there?
I've never seen that conversion done before.
- It's quite simple though isn't?
- I'm gonna say bodge but I'm pretty sure that'll work okay.
- Yeah it looks like it's gonna be completely functional
don't know how safe it is.
- Next up this from Todd Crandell.
"Saw this outside a cofee shop in Auburn
"and dad pulled in with three toddlers in that seat
"mum showed up a few minutes later in the car
"couldn't get a picture of all three of them on the bike"
- I bet that's great.
Imagine having your three toddlers on the back of that
and taking into school or the shops.
- I'm not sure about the structural integrity
of that avalanche frame though.
It looks a little bit thin isn't it?
But no, fine.
I mean little stampy over there isn't it?
- Yeah, kickstand is great isn't it?
Chris Evans over on Twitter
"What you think of this GCN hack?
"Someone was top of the class at would work."
- Oh that's amazing, and it's super aero as well.
It looks like something from the 1950s.
- That is an amazing piece of woodwork right there.
- That's a work of art.
- That's a massive hack.
- Yeah there's no there's no seat tube.
- I mean though that there's no grips on the bars there
but they look mega comfortable anyway.
- Its looks super aero as well.
This is a pretty amazing.
This is from Xander Griffo
who had a bit of an issue with his rear mech snapping off
in the Paris-Roubaix sportif and look what he's done.
He's made is a--
He's kept - like a chain tension
- Yeah and then it's that's that in itself is attached
to the front mech as well.
- I mean that's remarkably simple
but it looks like that would work.
- Yeah if it does work hats off to you.
Did it get you through to the end of the sportif?
Let us know.
If you've got any of your own hacks of bodges
that you would like to send us in.
Same as ever it's the #GCNhack
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Time now for caption competition.
Last week's picture -
Peter Sagan with a cobblestone on his shoulder.
And the winner is Shaun McNally who said
"Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got...
"I'm still Peter from the block."
Well he sent that in hoping
that Si would sing it on the show.
Unfortunately Si's away at the moment.
- Don't be fooled by the rock's that I got
I am still and still Peter from the block.
- Anyway this week's photo.
By the way get in touch with us on Facebook Shaun
with your address we'll get this to you.
Oh I think I forgot the Camelbak water bottle.
- Go and grab one out the fireplace
where we keep our Camelbak water bottles.
- One of these.
- Well saved actually.
- This week's photo is this one of Rigoberto Uran
on the deck at the Amstel gold race on Sunday.
I'll get you started.
- Took a while to get this one didn't you,
but it's a good one, have a listen.
This always happens on my Cannondale.
- Yeah you've set the bar.
It's quite intermediate level really I would suggest
and I'm surely you can do a lot better.
You know to leave your comments,
well your captions down below.
- Yeah you need to apologise for that one.
- Before we tell you what's coming up on GCN
over the next seven days,
here's few of our favourite comments from the last week.
Last week actually pondered whether anybody
had previously done the Paris-Roubaix Amstel double.
Whether Sagan would be the first person
if he won Amstel.
So which he didn't of course.
Kovar gave us the answer
Jan Raas, Eddy Mercx and Bernard Hinault
have all done it before.
- Yeah correctamundo.
Next up is this some advice
for you actually Dan from Carter Hick.
Bear with me it's quite lengthy.
"Dan your hair looks better with the side part.
"Like it was before you shaved it.
"You don't have to do the hard part
"which can be high maintenance.
"Just keep the top longer than the sides
"and don't let it get too long." he goes on
"I mean unless you plan to use the product everyday
"on your current setup to keep it slick and not too puffy,
"I think going back to the side part
"is something to seriously consider"
Okay well great Carter for getting in contact.
I'm sure he'll take that advice--
- That's the most detailed advice I've got before.
Alright underneath "What does it take to film an epic ride"
with Matt and Emma which I thoroughly recommend you watch
if you haven't done so already.
Has this from Johan,
who is loving the guy in the background at 1:45 in.
- I only saw that when it ended up on YouTube.
But for that is pretty cool.
And then there we've got this one from Michael McDonough.
That was underneath "How to corner with confidence."

- Be like some kind of adventure guide.
- And on Friday is ask GC anything.
- On Saturday Emma continues her series showing you
"How to train on your commute.
This time it's hill reps.
She's a real glutton for punishment isn't she?
Sunday we've then got my tour
of the CeramicSpeed factory over in Denmark
which I hope you find very interesting.

Well that's the end of this week's GCN show.
Don't forget to give us your opinions on Gravel riding.
Do you do it, if so, why do you do it?
And if you don't, why don't you?
