Do Cobbles Have A Place In The Tour de France? | The GCN Show Ep. 288

– Stuck in a forest in
the middle of nowhere. – [All] Welcome to the GCN Show. – Welcome to the GCN Show, brought to you by Wiggle. – Coming up this week, do cobbles belong in the Tour de France? Or are they simply too dangerous? – We also take a look at the
world’s smallest power meter, the world’s most aerodynamic bike. We look at two world record attempts, three world hour record attempts and a zipless jersey. We’d better crack on. (upbeat music) This week in the world of cycling, we learnt that seven watts per
kilo will go quite a long way to helping you win the Tour de France. – Yeah, this is the power that Alberto Contador reportedly produced for a 20 minute test before
winning the Tour de France, whilst weighing just 62 kilograms. – Yeah. Four hundred and fifty eight watts, which is absolutely bonkers. Moving on, this week we also learned that while Ollie here does
have a PhD in chemistry, he really struggles to pronounce Angliru. – Ang-ri-loo. Amazing bike up the Ang-ri-loo. In the Ang-ri-loo. (distorted speaking) – From this point onwards,
Oliver Bridgewood, you shall be known here
at GCN as Lou, Angry Lou. – Great. – Viewers love a nickname. Finally this week in the world of cycling, we learnt that cobblestones at grand tours create chaos and carnage, excitement, emotion,
pain, drama, blood, sweat and, indeed, tears. Stage nine of this year’s race was 156.5 kilometers to Roubaix. And as such, it included 15 sectors of
cobblestones that totaled 21.7ks. – That’s right. Porte crashed out. Degenkolb’s stage win, meant so much to him, that he was reduced to tears. Romain Bardet suffered
about a million mechanicals, and every GC rider seemingly had to perform a manic chase
back on after crashing, or being held up by a crash. – They did. But, after the dust
quite literally settled after that stage, there wasn’t that much change in the overall classification. Rigoberto Uran was the big
loser of the GC favorites, his team unable to chase him back on after he was caught in a crash himself. And so this week, we are debating, whether or not cobblestones deserve a place at a race like the Tour de France. We have got your opinions, we’ve got the opinions of
the pros within the race, and for what it’s worth, we’ve got our own opinions here too. Do cobblestones deserve
their place in the Tour? Are the best thing since sliced bread, or are they simply too dangerous? – So one of the best things about sport, is unpredictability. And in the past, many people have complained that the race becomes boring
when one rider dominates and just runs away with it. – Well it is. – Yeah, well, cobbles certainly throw a massive spanner of unpredictability into the works. – They most certainly do. I don’t like to mention of this, Ollie, but I have once ridden a cobbled stage of the Tour de France. Now albeit at the back, so it was pretty safe for me. From my vantage point though, it did look pretty dangerous at the front. I do think that rider welfare does need to be taken into consideration, the safety of the riders is not something that anybody should take for granted. That said, I think that the two stages I was most looking forward
to watching this year, were firstly that cobble stage, and then secondly, that 65
kilometer mountain stage. Probably even in front
of the outdoer stage. – Yeah, and another argument is that the winner of the tour should be the most complete rider, and the bike handling skills
required to negotiate the cobbles, certainly form part of that. And a great example is
probably Vincenzo Nibali’s win, in 2015. – But he is the complete rider, isn’t he? He’s proven that time and time again. And then also worth
taking into consideration is the fact that cobblestones are not a recent edition,
addition should I say, to the Tour de France. In fact, since its inception, there have more additions
with cobblestones, than without. Although admittedly, a lot of that was due to the tours that took place in the early part of the 20th century, being
on pretty rough roads, i.e. cobbles at the time. But, this was a good
comment from Dave Ward, who pointed out that in 1910, riders were saying that the Pyrenees should have no place
in the Tour de France, after they were introduced, but the race would be pretty
boring without them now. – Yeah, it’s a good point. And fundamentally, it’s
important to remember that sport is entertainment, and one of the things that’s most entertaining and endearing in sport is when athletes are
forced to do something that’s out of their comfort zone. So a good example of this, can also apply in other sports. So for example football. – Topical. – I try. Well, what I mean by that is, when a footballer, say a defender, is forced to take a penalty, it’s not their sort of thing that they’re specialist at. And therefore it inevitably
adds drama and excitement. And the same be can said for a climber or a GC contender taking on the cobbles, because it’s not their chosen discipline. But equally, when that
defender scores the goal, or when the climber pulls off an amazing ride on the cobbles, it’s just really great to watch. – Yeah we could probably finish with the football analogies now,
to be perfectly honest. But I get your point, and I
completely agree with you. Because, I mean you’d imagine that the featherweight
climbers in particular would really suffer over the rough stuff, and get annihilated by the likes of Pete Sagan or Greg van Avermaet, but look at little Nairo Quintana, all 60 kilograms of him, at the very most, he floated over the cobbles didn’t he? Didn’t put a foot wrong for the whole day. – Think the same can be said for Dan Martin, Yates, Nibbles, Frume, and Roglich as well. I mean they may not enjoy the prospect of riding over the cobbles, but I think having seen them do it and succeed at it, it’s earned them even more
respect from the public. – Yeah. I think I agree with you again, Ollie, it’s much easier doing the show with you than Si, there’s arguments when
Si and I are doing it. Anyway, we shall get out of the way first our own opinions on this, starting with Ollie. In or out, for the cobbles? – I think in, you know. As long as I don’t ever have
to ride the cobbles myself. – I have that opinion on mountains. But that’s an in for me as well, so once again we are agreeing. Before we get on to your
opinions as viewers, we also canvased some of the pros that are within the (mumbles) that raced that stage on Sunday. Wasn’t the largest
sample size in the world, it should be said. – 11. – 11 riders responded, yes. But it was a fairly equal split, six of those riders said yes, they should be included, with a couple of caveats
that I’ll get onto. Five gave a definitive no, they shouldn’t be in the Tour de France. So those caveats were firstly, one rider who said, “Yes
they should be included, but they should be limited to a maximum of around eight sectors as opposed to the 15 they had this year”. Another rider, “Yes
they should be included, but not every year,
maybe every other year, or every three years, a
little bit like (mumbles)”. – Koen De Kort’s response
was really interesting. He wrote that “It’s a part of cycling so it does have it’s place, especially as the race is in France. Of course it increases
the risk of crashes, but so do descents and
we don’t take those out. It’s a pity guys that lose time or worse because of bad luck and for that I can see the negatives, but it’s part of cycling too”. – Yeah, good point that, because there are loads of crashes in other parts of stages that don’t involve cobblestones at all. I also got some really
interesting opinions from you, over from Facebook and indeed, underneath yesterday’s
GCN racing news show. First up, Andrew Powell. “Of course they deserve their place. They don’t favor some riders, in the same way that the mountains, flat stages and time-trials don’t favor other types of riders”. – Yeah, and Rhiannon
Jones commented saying, “Cobbles were fab to watch – through my fingers, behind a cushion, peaking around the back of the sofa – in case G came off and
didn’t get back on”. – It’s a G fan. Guy Vincent, or perfect Gui Vincent, “It is the Tour de France, and those paves are in France, so yes”. Quite succinct comment, that. And a good point too. – Yep. Matthew Bradley commented saying, “It’s another skill to master. The element of risk and the luck is what attracts some viewers and without the audience,
there is no race. However, when you see the stars crash out it’s difficult to take”. – David Gray, presumably
not the David Gray. – Did enjoy White Ladder though, so, thanks for that David. Classic. – “Richie crashed on tarmac, as did Uran and Landa. Grand Tour winner should
be an all rounder, not just a climber who can tt”. That, also is a good, there’s been a lot of good
points today, haven’t there? Keep saying good point. But yeah, none of them crashed actually on the cobbles, and they did crash on some pretty innocuous
pieces of tarmac, didn’t they. – Yeah and if you are the David Gray, then please forgive me. – Oh my goodness. Right, Simon come back, I don’t mind arguing. As long as I don’t have to
listen to jokes like that. On the other side of the fence, to the start with we have Mike Garner. “No”, three explanation marks, “That is was Paris-Roubaix is for. Why repeat it?”. – Yeah and Chris Halle says, “Love cobbles, but not in le Tour. Too much nervous racing, and a top contender always seems to get taken out by someone. It turns the race into a lottery and a bit of a circus”. – And finally Andrew Probst, “Great to see the cobbles but maybe there were too
much for a grand tour. Yesterday nearly wiped out
all the GC contenders”. And nearly, being the
significant word there, because actually, only one went home, that was before the cobbles even started. As ever, we would love to
get your opinions on this, even though we have done so already, on our Facebook poll et cetera. Maybe though this time, you
can use some soccer analogies just like Ollie. – (laughing) (trumpets blaring) – It’s now time for cycling shorts. – We should start cycling shorts, with the brand new cycling jersey. We gotta give a quick plug to our very own shop, because this is the brand new GCN fan kit. We have mentioned this actually on last week’s show, we
thought we’d mention it again, because we now have it here in the flesh, or at least in the Lycra. You might be wondering why I slightly awkwardly got
it out of a musette bag, by GCN too. Reason for that is, for a limited time, when you purchase the jersey, you’ll also receive with it, a free musette. The shop web address is, and we’ll link to that
later on in the show. – [Ollie] I do like that jersey. – It does look nice, stands out, yeah. – I like it. In other news, artificial intelligence has been used to design an ultra aerodynamic bike. Software engineers have developed some software. – Splash, just like that,
software engineering developed a software, carry on. – Which can, you can input some user defined specifications into it, and in doing so, will come up with the most optimal, aerodynamic
shape for a bicycle. And they’ve used it to
develop a bike which they hope will be able to break
the land speed record for human powered vehicles, at the battle mountain of Atnea Nevada, later on in the year. – Does it look that much like a bike? I’m not sure that would pass UTR regulations. That record that they’re
trying to beat though was in 2009, it’s 132 kilometers per hour? – 33. – 33. Oh it’s 82 miles per hour. Since it’s stood so long, I wish them the best of luck. Would love to see them smash that. In a very different world record attempt, we have Jenny Graham, and the
one that she’s trying to beat is the self supported riding your bike around the world record, and she’s not just trying
to beat it in fact, she wants to smash it by a full 34 days. Jenny left Berlin on the 16th of June, where she’s looking to cover
a total of 18,000 miles, averaging 16 hours day, and 180 miles. – Obviously that sounds horrific, when you read the numbers out like that. Imagine actually doing it. Anyway, her latest update, Jenny said that she’s
just got into Mongolia, having covered over 5000 miles in the last month. With an average moving speed
of 13.1 miles per hour. She’s just about on schedule, she’s come into some difficulties whilst she was riding down the trans Siberian highway, and had to change from
a day time schedule, to a night time one, because, scary this, apparently she’s been quite regularly almost run off the road by the trucks going down that highway, which is really not good at all. Thankfully though, she is now managing to claw back some time, having got a little bit behind schedule. – Amazing stuff. All the best Jenny. Now, it’s not uncommon for members of the public to take selfies with pro riders, but, this one we saw this week, this is the best one we have ever seen. So Francois Cote took this picture in Ottowa, and it is
an absolute masterclass in timing.
– It’s amazing. Yeah, he’s got like a double
selfie there hasn’t he? He’s got one where you’ve got the full sideways picture of Rusty Woods, who even tweeted him back saying, “Nice to be able to check
out my own position”. Then one right next to his arm. Really great, I did enjoy that. Okay, and it’s time now to bring back GCN’s cycling celebrity tenuous lingo, the completely wrong way round. Tenuous celebrity cycling
link, there we go. This time it is the tennis legend Rafael Nadal who’s got 17 grand slam
titles to his name. What’s the best way to go shopping when you’re at Wimbledon? By bike, of course. Here he is leaving his house. – Yeah, 17 grand slams but does look like he could
do with a bike fit though. – I know. Yeah, he needs that saddle up a bit on that trek, doesn’t he? Also, he needs a mechanic. Listen to this again. (gears clunking) That sounds horrible, doesn’t it? And the tenuous celebrity cycling links don’t finish there this week. We’ve also got one from the Tour de France because joining team Catusha was the NBA legend, is he a legend? NBA player, Tony Parker, who despite how his name
sounds is actually French. Here’s some pictures of him going out on the ride with that team. (upbeat music) – It’s now time for the
GCN Wiggle of Fortune. – And I shall explain the ins
and outs of it to you Ollie as this is your first GCN show. One contestant each week is lucky enough to be in with a chance of winning one of four Wiggle voucher amounts. £25 for prize four, £50 for prize three, not even looking at this, hopefully I’m pointing to the right place, £75 for prize two, and the big prize, prize one, almost there, £150 to spend on whatever you want on
the Wiggle online shop. Plus, there is one beer, and I have won that once. Don’t think there’s even
any beers in the fridge, there’s no point in winning it this week. Right, this week’s lucky contestant is Euan Walker from right here in the UK. You can do the honors of pressing this quite high
class technical button, in three, in two, in one, we’re off! (electronic noises) There we go, so good luck to you Euan at, (mumbles) we had prize one, I think, so you might be the lucky
person to get that this week. It’s gone past prize one. It’s almost on the beer! It’s almost, not on the beer. I got quite excited then! We would’ve had to go out and buy one unexpected, had I won that. As it is Euan, you have won £25 in Wiggle vouchers. Make sure you write us in and let us know what you spend those vouchers on. Because we are interested to know. (upbeat music) Are zipless jerseys the next big cycle clothing innovation? Could well be. You’ll remember that Dan Martin made a searing attack to win that stage up in the (mumbles) and he did so using a zipless jersey. This has come from you, UAE Emirates should I say, kit supply champion systems, who say that this jersey is not just lighter, and more aero, but it’s super breathable too. Which I’d guess you’d want, without a zip, wouldn’t you? You don’t want a non breathable
jersey without a zip. – [Ollie] When I first saw it, I thought he’d just put a
normal jersey on backwards. – Yeah, like a podium jersey. – Yeah. But, also new in tech this week, we have this. So, what do you think that is Dan? – [Dan] That looks to me to be like one of the essential parts to fit into the new Pete Sagan
golden shower head. – Well that’s a good guess. But in actual fact, it’s a brand new, tiny power meter, from a company called AroFly. Now this tiny new power meter actually fits on to your
valve on your wheel. – [Dan] The valve cap? – Yeah, like a valve cap. It’s can fit onto
shrader or presta valves, and it works by way of a little peto tube that’s inside it, and also an accelerometer. So it can measure your
cadence and your speed, and then software can be used to analyze this data, and come up with a power reading. And apparently, the makers claim that it’s accurate to plus or minus 2%, and it weighs just 10 grams. – Wow, that is light. I’d be nicely impressed if they did actually manage to actually make that accurate to plus or minus 2%. But if they do, it also means it’s great value, cause
it’ll retail for $269. Right, another new piece of kit in the news this week in the tech news, is
that BMC have released a brand new time-trial bike. It is basically an updated version of their team machine time-trial bike, but this one is disc brake equipped. The previous version was
center pull rim brakes. – Yeah and, by having disc brakes, there’s actually a slight
aerodynamic penalty for that. So it’s really interesting on this bike to see how BMC have minimized that by creating special shapes and covers around the disc brake on the fork, and also on the chain stay as well to minimize drag. – Looks slick, doesn’t it? That BMC team machine. Sticking with new bikes
for a few more moments, I have no doubt that you’ve
watched the video already, but if you haven’t, Ollie here recently unboxed the brand new Orbea Orca Aero disc, and it’s got to be said, that is one sexy beast
of a bike, isn’t it? Right there? – [Ollie] It is. – And incredible news is that one unbelievably lucky winner will get one. I can’t believe it. What an incredible prize that is. – Well yeah I mean it’s not just an Orbea Orca Aero disc, it’s also one with a custom paint job, designed by the winner. I mean that’s gotta be probably the greatest prize ever given away by anyone in the universe. – To be fair, I’m looking at it cause it’s down here by the way, I really like the paint
job that it came with. – [Ollie] Yeah it looks lovely. – [Dan] It’s awesome. – So, to be in with a chance to enter, simply watch the video, and follow the link that’s at the bottom, in the description. And best of luck to you all. But right now, it’s time to give away, well announce the winners, of the Raptor (mumbles). – Yeah we have got two winners of the Raptor Smart Glasses, they being, quick drumroll. (bangs on table) Paul Mullin from here in the UK, and Nic Dorman in Australia. It might be that we’ve already been in touch with you,
I’m not completely sure. But if we haven’t, we will do so soon, and we’ll get those straight out to you. Racing news now, and we’ll start with the news that three riders are set to make an attempt on the world hour record later this year. And interestingly, all three of them have chose the exact same venue, at altitude, in Mexico. – Yeah Danish rider Madsjov Madssen and Dutch rider Dion Burkernbugen. – [Dan] I wanted (mumbles),
give you the Danish one. – Are gonna be attempting to better Bradley Wiggins’ record
of 55.52 kilometers. While the Italian Vittoria Bussi, is gonna try and beat
Evelyn Steven’s record of 47.98. – But, why are they all
doing it at altitude? We hear you ask. – Science alert. (alarm ringing) So, riding at altitude has some significant benefits, and also some negatives too. Now, the main one is
to do with air density. At altitude, air density is much lower. And can typically be around 0.9 kilograms per meters cubed. Now, when air density is this low, that has a significant benefit to aerodynamic drag. So, for example, it’s directly, well, it’s directly proportional so that if you have 10% lower air density, that means 10% less aerodynamic drag. – I’m looking at you like I
know what you’re talking about. But anyway, that reduced air density does apparently also mean that you can only produce, well, you can produce less power output, in terms of your aerobic
sustainable power, when you’re at that altitude. But the boffins over at
aerodynamic specialist watch shop, have actually
done some calculations on this in the past, and what they worked out, is that Wiggins would have ridden a whopping 57.16 kilometers in that hour had he done it at the Aguascalientes bicentenary velodrome in Mexico, which is 1887 meters above sea level. And of course being boffins, they’ve also taken into
account that reduction in the capacity to produce
aerobic power at altitude. – I just can’t get over your pronunciation of the velodrome in Mexico, there. Not even gonna attempt it myself. – No, well with Spanish, just go quick. – Yeah. – Get it out the way, pretty much spot on. Aguascalientes. – But interestingly, Dowsett has previously stated that if he were to attempt the record again, to try and better Wiggins, that he would prefer
to do it at sea level, so that he’s on a level
playing field with Wiggins. But it does beg the question, that if the record does
get beaten at altitude, will that see Dowsett getting to altitude to level the playing field once again? – I guess he would do, wouldn’t he? Cause that would be a
level playing field, then. Moving on to the Tour
de France briefly now, and a snippet of news that
came from there last week. Apparently Strava has
been quite influential on the Tour de France route, or at least the first week. And in particular, those stages that took place in Brittany and Normandy. The route master, Tieri Guvaenu an ex pro himself, said that he was scouring Scava for the most popular climbing segment in that region, and therefore can piece together a really nice route full of some of the best climbs in the area. – Bet the segment leaders
weren’t too happy about that. – No, I expect a few people lost their care homes last week didn’t they? Brittany. – Yeah. This week also saw the announcement of a brand new women’s
world tour team for 2019. The long standing Trek Segafredo team has announced that there’s
going to be a women’s team called Trek Factory Racing next year. And it looks like they’ve already signed some star riders. – They most certainly have. Already announced are former
world champion Lizzie Deignon, she will resume training in December, after giving birth to her first child. They’ve also got former
world time-trial champion Ellen VanDyke, and the Wiggle high5 duo of Elisa Longo Borghini, and Audrey Cordon-Ragot. – That’s right, the UCI is gonna have a categorization for women’s teams, and
those in the top tier, the world tour, will have to meet the minimum wage requirement. Although, it’s yet to be decided what that minimum wage is going to be. – Good news nonetheless. Be interesting to hear what
that minimum wage will be. More good news on the
men’s side of the sport, for BMC racing I’m sure a huge relief. It appears they will
continue as a team because CCC have already got their
own pro continental squad, will be the main headline sponsor of BMC racing starting in 2019. Unclear at the moment how
much of it is a merger, bit like David Brent then, and how much it will be
just the main sponsor jumping ship and sponsoring
almost a brand new team, but what is confirmed, is that Greg Van Avermaet has re-signed a new contract, and so he will be their headline rider. Or one of them. – I think the biggest question though is will be they be called BMCCCC? – I CCCC what you did there Ollie. (electrical whirring) Time now for hack forward
slash bodge of the week. Complete amateur at this,
but got it right first time. PhD’s for you. First up, from the _BenCr on twitter, spotted this at the Bristol Grand Prix. Winter bike, tandum. – [Ollie] Yeah, well it’s certainly gonna keep you warm, isn’t it? – Yes, hack or bodge? Gotta be a bodge, that, hasn’t it? – [Ollie] Yeah. It’s a bodge. – [Dan] Looks rad though. Still got that. What’s next? – Max Sillifant has given this, when you have no water for your next ride. I mean- – [Dan] What are those two? Sort of two liter water bottles taped on? – [Ollie] Yeah, I mean
whenever there’s tape involved, it’s a bodge, isn’t it? – Definite bodge Max, sorry about that. Here we have one on
Instagram from brothenburg. “I punctured on a gravel ride and realized I had left
my tyre levers at home – so quick release came in handy”. – That’s quite a novel idea. – It is, yeah. – I could imagine quick releases being designed in the future with that on. Like plastic ones that don’t ruin your inner tubes. Hack. – [Dan] Hack for you. – Next up, we have
galenkehler on Instagram. “Use an old clincher race tire as a quick protector for your fancy track tubular when traveling”. – [Dan] Well you could
get some wheel bags. I’m sure it does the job, yeah. – [Ollie] I’m sure it does the job. I think that’s a hack. Okay. – [Dan] Alright I’ll go
along with you Ollie. Next up from colyd0g, “Bamboo bike seen in Bristol”. Lots from Bristol this week. “It did weigh like a granite bike though”. Homemade bamboo bicycle. I’d say that’s gotta be a hack, isn’t it? Making your own bike? – [Ollie] Yeah, that’s
pretty impressive actually. Next up, we have bikeobsession, who has something badly cut the tire, something badly cut the
sidewall of his tire and it caused a blow out, so he used a blue piece of cardboard from an inner tube lox as a liner to protect the spare tube. When he inflated the tire, this is how it looked. Almost custom looking, even matched my paint scheme. – It’s an oldie but it’s a goodie. Lots of things will work, whether it’s the cardboard
from your inner tube, or- – Gel packet. – £50 note is what I personally use. Or a dollar note. They’ll all do the trick. Yeah gel wrapper. – [Ollie] Yeah. – Yeah. Right continue to send us
your hacks and bodges please, we absolutely love seeing them. The hashtag is GCNHACK. We mainly look on Instagram and Twitter. – It’s now time for the
GCN caption competition. And last week we had this
photo, of Chris Fring. – We did. Thank you for all your captions beneath last week’s GCN show. However we do have a winner, and a very clever winner at that. That person is Patrick Carroll who wrote “Press F10 to remount”. Those are the sort of captions that I just can never think of. Patrick, get in touch on
Facebook with your address, and we’ll the camel back
GCN water bottle out to you. – So this week, we have a picture of Yan Afredo. – Yan Afredo. Yeah I’ll get you started. – You got any? – I have, yeah. I’ve been thinking about this. “Come on guys, what are you Afredove?”. – It’s actually quite good actually. – Quite good? Excellent, that is. Get involved in the comments down below with your captions, for your opportunity to win a GCN camel back water bottle. – I do actually like that one. – Quick update on what’s coming up on GCN over the next seven days, starting with Wednesday, and then we will have
five essential skills to help make you more pro. And on Thursday, we’ve got seven ways that you are
slowing yourself down. Think I did promise
that last week in fact, but hopefully it will
be up this time round. Friday as ever is ask GCN I think. – Saturday we have the
third episode of our how to get fit quick series. Then on Sunday, it’s Emma and Chris riding the Maritona, probably quite a bit quicker than
when you did it, I’d imagine. – Blimin’ heck Ollie! Yeah, fair enough. Good point. – And then on Monday, it’s the race news show, and then on Tuesday it’s the GCN show, episode 289. – It is, yeah. Closing in on 300 now,
back in the set for that. Stay tuned too for more Tour de France content, because we’ve currently got Emma and Si on the ground out there, and Chris, and I think Jamie’s on
his way out tomorrow. So it’s gonna be a whole load
of extra content for you, for free, and also make sure that you tune into our Facebook page, because we’ve got daily highlights of the Tour de France and, if you didn’t see it earlier on today, Tuesday, if you’re watching this then, we had live coverage in
North and South America on Facebook of la course
by Tour de France. If you didn’t see that, and you live in those places, you can catch up on,
sort of on demand really. Isn’t it? That’s all for this week, I’m afraid. We will of course be back same time next week. Hope you’ve enjoyed
your first show, Ollie. – Yeah, it’s been great. – It has. I’ve enjoyed it too. We’ve agreed on so much stuff, haven’t we? It was going well until he accused me of being slow round the Maritona. Right, if you haven’t yet seen Ollie’s unboxing of that fabulous Orbea Orca Aero disc, I thoroughly recommend watching that now. You can find a link to it just down here, and make sure you visit the shop too for all your July merchandise and indeed that fan team kit. The Orbea’s just lying down here, John, he’s gonna pass it to me, I am gonna effortlessly wreck the set, look at it! Thing of beauty! Mind the glass. – Oh god. It is a lot lighter than Dan’s making it look, as well. – It’s been quite a while
since I lifted seven kilos. (chain grinds)
