After my last episode at the Scottish cyclocross champs I got some great feedback and discussion on Facebook in the Scottish cyclocross group. I was really pleased to see this – I’m not aiming to be controversial for the sake of it, or to draw attention, but to raise constructive discussion points and this is what happened, so thans everyone who commented.
I thought I would keep the run going with an ‘inbetweenisode’ – just me talking. Tis the season to make woefully inaccurate prognostications, but I’m not much of a gambler, so I’ve gone for a few fairly safe predictions for the Scottish cycling scene in 2016.
Blogger Spokedoke has posted his view of how the future of cycling will look and this is a good look at the way things are changing in international pro road cycling.
- ASO V UCI
- Light weight bikes with the removal of 6.8kg rule
- How this might affect:
- Disc brakes on road bikes
- Power meters
- Thought on Rio Olympics and how athletics doping crisis may affect things
In the podcast, I delve into my humble predictions for the coming year with a Scotland-centric hat on.
