The event is one of the most exciting races of the year and is the culmination of months of hard graft, and perfecting bikes and bodies, so tensions run high in the run-up to the hugely anticipated moment.
Expect to see big crowds, (inappropriately) big gears, lots of gurning, lightweight people and even lighter bikes in this action-packed episode.
We should point out that we also told a bit of a fib in last week’s video — that episode was not the penultimate one and we will instead be running a hill climb special next Friday where we’ll run through our whole season and try our best to answer any of your remaining questions.
If you’ve got any burning questions about our training (or Jack’s lack of), Reuben’s vegan diet, our bikes, the hill climb scene in general or absolutely anything else, get commenting, either here or on YouTube, and we’ll do our best to get back to you.
Thanks for watching, and as always, don’t forget to check out all of the other episodes from the series:
Jack has been riding and fettling bikes for his whole life. Always in search of the hippest new niche in cycling, Jack is a self-confessed gravel dork, fixie-botherer, tandem-evangelist, hill-climbing try hard, and thinks nothing of taking on a daft challenge for the BikeRadar YouTube channel. With a near encyclopaedic knowledge of cycling tech — from the most esoteric niche nonsense to the most cutting edge modern kit — Jack takes pride in his ability to seek out tech and stories that would otherwise go unreported. Jack has been at BikeRadar for three years now and is regularly testing an esoteric mix of weird and wonderful bikes.
