Top 10 Things The UCI Have Banned

Subscribe to GCN on YouTube: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Developments in technology and knowledge regarding sport science and aerodynamics mean that cycling is constantly looking for ways to improve performance.

6 Climbing Mistakes To Avoid When Cycling | GCN Pro Tips

Riding uphill is hard enough as it is, don't make it tougher than it needs to be. Matt is here with 6 mistakes to avoid. Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Get exclusive GCN gear in the GCN shop! http://gcn.eu/f5 Let us know mistakes that you avoid when climbing in the comments below 👇 To make climbs more pleasant, and allow you to get up and over them faster, ex-professional cyclist Matt Stephens presents 6 mistakes that you need to avoid In no particular order they are as follows: 1. Don't go into the red! Pace yourself, don't go flat out at the bottom. 2. Under gearing, spin to win is all well and good, but spinning at a very high cadence is simply not efficient. 3. Over gearing. You may damage your knees, and simply you are not mechanically efficient when grinding a big gear. Plus, you run the risk of actually coming to a standstill if the gradient is severe enough! 4. Shifting under load. Make sure you change gear at the right time, a poorly timed shift can result in a jammed chain due to the torque involved. 5. Climbing on the tops. Don't climb out of the saddle on the tops of the handlebars, it is very twitchy and you don't have as much control. 6. Eating. Avoid stuffing lots of energy food into your mouth on a climb. You will be unable to take in enough oxygen as the food is blocking it's passage. Those are just some mistakes to avoid!

Is A Compact Faster Than A Standard Chainset? GCN Vs. The Mortirolo | Giro D'Italia 2015

The Mortirolo. Lance Armstrong called it the hardest climb in Europe. That makes it the perfect for finding out which is better for climbing; a compact or a standard chainring. Comment below with your guess before you watch the video! Click right here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Bike tech has come on a lot in recent years. Climbs like the Mortirolo in the Giro, the Angliru in the Vuelta and the Hautacam in the Tour will always be tough. But, have compact gears made them both easier, and faster? It sounds counter-intuiitive – compact gears give you a lower gear, which is generally thought of as slower, so, surely, 39x25 will be faster than 34x32? Watch and find out... Buy GCN Cycling Kit!

How To Pedal | Cycling Technique
 
05:39
Pedalling comes naturally, for the most part. But there are things you can do to make your pedal stroke more efficient. Click here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Professional cyclists rarely think consciously about pedalling in circles, and neither should you - your natural pedal stroke is probably the best. Where the pros have the edge is a well-developed flexibility, allowing their muscles to move freely through the full pedalling range. Regular stretching will go some way to giving you that flexibility too. Cadence drills can help maintain your efficiency even when churning up hills, and even thinking about saving energy by keeping your upper body steady will help in the long run.

How To Use Zwift | Zwift For Beginners
 
07:20
Thanks to Zwift for the products used in this video, all views are the presenters own. Zwift is an online virtual cycling world that allows you to ride, train or race with other cyclists from around the globe! Si and Matt are here to let you know the basics for being able to use the increasingly popular platform. Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Are you a Zwift user? Let us know how you are finding it in the comments below 👇 Ex-professional cyclists Simon Richardson and Matt Stephens are here with all you need to know about starting up with Zwift. You will need an account, head over to http://gcn.eu/ZwiftBeginner and sign-up, you can start with a free trial. You will need an indoor trainer, and something that tells Zwift how fast you are riding. For a basic setup this can be a speed sensor that communicates with Zwift. A more advanced setup is using a powermeter which transmits all metrics to the software. The most accurate setup though, is to use a smart trainer. This will also increase/decrease pedalling resistance dependant on terrain and if you are slipstreaming for instance. You will also need a towel, drink, and we advise using a fan to help keep you cool. Something also worth considering is the Zwift app, this is used as a remote control for the features available. There are three different worlds that you can ride in, these are: Watopia - South Pacific Paradise, 8 routes and 42km of roads Richmond - 4 routes and 18.9km of roads London - 8 routes and 27.5km of roads Zwift has a calendar to show when the different courses/routes are available to ride on as well as group rides and races that are being hosted if you wish to join in the fun. Choosing a route is simple and then you can go for a ride, you can even choose to turn onto a different route as well as doing a U-Turn and riding the other way if you see someone you would like to ride with for example. The screen setup shows all the metrics you need, including gradient and where you are on a route/ride. You can also see where you in comparison to others riding, as well as the watts per kg that they are outputting! You can even customise your clothing and bike appearance onscreen, including an unlockable GCN kit! Not forgetting being able to wave at others, flick the elbow and even give other users a 'Ride-on' There are plenty of training sessions and workouts on Zwift, including 32 GCN workouts and you can even create your own. After any activity the ride data is displayed and can be saved/uploaded to your profile on sites such as Strava, Training Peaks etc. If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link 👍 http://gcn.eu/nr Watch more on GCN...

Are Wheels The Best Upgrade You Can Make To Your Bike?
 
07:37
Does a better set of wheels offer the biggest gain in bike performance? Click here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN When it comes to upgrading, most people will tell you to improve your wheelset, Generally you can expect a sizeable decrease in weight and potential aerodynamic gains. These gains come at a cost though - aside maybe investing in a power meter or changing your bike altogether, wheels will usually be the most expensive upgrade you can make. But in terms of other upgrades like tyres, groupsets or other component, how does a shiny new set of wheels match up? Well, we took to the road to find out.
