    British Gravel Championships special | Road pedals, 28psi and sprint finishes

    In this special edition of the BikeRadar podcast, digital writer Jack Evans records live from the British Gravel Championships at the King’s Cup Gravel Festival in Suffolk, east England. 

    After taking part himself, Jack reports on a prestigious event in the UK off-road racing scene.

    You’ll hear from gravel galacticos, such as Ineos Grenadier Connor Swift and double Olympic triathlon champion Alistair Brownlee, and women’s podium finishers. 

    The cry of the crowd, buzzing freehubs and whirring pressure washers will transport you to the fast, dusty tracks of the King’s Forest.

    The perfect power meter doesn’t exist

    BikeRadar’s power meter cognoscente Simon von Bromley is often asked: “Which power meter should I buy?”.

Far too much road nonsense đŸ€­

Definitely only here for the Mtb casts, road nonsense just doesn’t give me the fizz unfortunately, find myself deleting more than listening. That said it’s all free to us so grateful for your efforts.

OK, but


Appalling sound quality

Garmin’s Andy Silver interview

This was a brilliant interview that was both explorative and challenging and really helped me think about the value of spending the money on the extra technology. The questions were interesting and pertinent. Well done Bike Radar.
