Why Power Isn’t Everything In Professional Cycling! | GCN Show Ep. 467
It's the GCN Show Christmas Special! Grab a warm cup of cocoa, sit around the fire and enjoy! This week we're talking about how cycling teams spot new talent. The widespread use of powermeters in professional cycling has meant that everybody knows what it takes to win big. So, naturally, cycling teams have started to put more and more emphasis on power data when looking to sign new riders. But should they be doing this? Dan and Si discuss how some teams have now gone back to looking more at racecraft and tactical awareness to get that winning edge over their rivals. We look at this, plus all the usual GCN Show features in the GCN Show Christmas Special!
