It’s official. E-Bikes are taking over. They’re now the top selling type of bike in a major cycling nation. But, before you get too worried, this doesn’t spell the end of road cycling and road bikes. At least as far was we’re concerned. Let us know your thoughts down in the comments, though. ?
In racing news, Alberto Contador was back in action in Europe at the Ruta del Sol. Contador – and several other big names like Mark Cavendish – will be in action in the Middle East at the Abu Dhabi Tour this week for the first UCI WorldTour Race since the Tour Down Under in January.
In tech news, ENVE has released a revised version of the SES 3.4 wheelset. Designed with climbers in mind, the wheels have received several tweaks and aero refinements.
Coming up on GCN this week, we’ll have our usual mix of cycling how to videos, features, pro bikes and top 10s. Matt will also be at the Abu Dhabi Tour, talking to the pro cyclists and checking out the latest tech, so let us know if there’s anything that you’d like him to check out.
If you’re US-based and interested in the People For Bikes survey, which we’d definitely encourage you to check out, click here: http://gcn.eu/4d
