Episode 8: The joy of data with Allen Lim (Part 1 of 2)
Allen Lim Part 1.The joy of data and the start of marginal gains. By now you've most likely heard the term “marginal gains” being thrown around in the cycling world.

Implementing scientifically proven data, in a sport that was riddled with tradition and resistance to 'science' was no easy task. We had to split this into two episodes as there are too many sound bites for one to take.
