Is Gravel The New Road? | The GCN Show Ep. 275

Is Gravel The New Road? | The GCN Show Ep. 275


– 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) (loud thud) – 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 Léon 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 Léon 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 Waf-e-nar third. – 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. – Two? 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 Flèche Wallonne and then on Sunday with the oldest classic of
them all Liège-Bastogne-Liège. 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? – Officially. – 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. (heavy panting) – 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 and zipties. – 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. – Sorry. – 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.” “I love it when stripey seniors
show us how it’s done magic” – Stripey senior now. – Well (mumbles) you’ve got
your a stripes and so is Emma. – Anyway there we are. On the channel this week now on Wednesday we’ve got “How not to ride steep climbs.” On Thursday we asked the pros what they do if they weren’t
professional cyclists? – A couch potato. – A DJ. – 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. Monday we’re back with
the racing news show and Tuesday back here in the set. – It’s time now down for extreme corner. Which is come on get your X on. – Yeah this week’s was suggested by a friend over at GMBN, Blake Sampson. This is his friend Adolph
Silver doing his stuff. – Last for takeoff. (crowd cheers) – Oh my goodness. – Dan that’s the first
time I think in history Anybody has nailed perfectly an SSSGF. Yeah and for those of you
not as cool as Matt & I and don’t know what that means, that is the Super surf saddle grab flip. First time has ever been
done, how impressive is that? 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? And how about heading just down here to see what it takes to
film the GCN epic ride.
