This episode of Service Course was recorded on location at the Hell of the North.
Join Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley for two breathtaking races at Paris-Roubaix and a closer look at some of the bikes being ridden. The pair hear about the rival adjustable tyre pressure systems being used by Team DSM and Jumbo-Visma at the race, Scope Atmoz and Gravaa Kaps respectively, as well as speaking to the creator of Gravaa Kaps, Gertjan van Ginderen. Despite both DSM and Jumbo-Visma having men’s and women’s teams, disappointingly the systems were absent from the women’s race, and Lizzy finds out exactly why that was.
Alongside that there are some other, literal, Easter Eggs, notably the one on John Degenkolb’s top tube, and seemingly an almost complete absence of suspension systems. Peter Sagan was using one, but he also had a gash in his tyre as Lizzy points out to his team before the start.
