    I would also suggest to remember to ride safely. Not all sportives are on closed roads and there may therefore be traffic. Also remember to ride within your limits. It would be sad to crash out of an event you have been looking forward to.

    Missed the start. Tick. Got lost. Tick. Forgot to eat. Tick. Ran out of water. Tick.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Nice to see that someone will finally be able to move those heavy boxes on the GCN crew

  • Sjaak van der Sar

    Took off front wheel when packing bike in the car and drove 120 miles to find out I was going to have to unicycle the whole thing..

    was lucky enough to ride the maratona last year once in a lifetime and the only advice I would have is look up enjoy the view, looking at the tarmac just in front of your wheel you might as well stay at home !

    I like the flow and format of this episode. Looks like GCN is starting to experiment a bit with topic transitions. :)

    This feels.. weird. All these new faces. I miss Matt 😕

  • Svibor Jančić

    First mistake was in the feed zone where i took a full glass of some kind of liquid and poor it on my head to cool myself, but it turns up that I splash myself with some kind of izotonik drink and I was half blind for next 10 minutes and quite sticky till the end of the race :-)

    I missed the old presenters❤️

    1. Arrive early - not just to park and get yourself and your bike ready without rushing, but also SIGN IN can take ages.
