episode 5: Service Course | Let's Talk About CX

In this episode of Service Course Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley look at the latest trends in cyclocross bikes.

With riders like Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert tearing things up both on the road and in the mud, they ask whether the two disciplines of road and cx are now having much more of an influence on each other.

Lizzy speaks to Anna Kay, one of the most promising young CX riders out there, and Tom chats to the team from Canyon about the new look Inflite, the bike ridden by the defending CX world champions Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado and Mathieu van der Poel.

The 2021 road season is also upon us, and so Lizzy and Tom take a look at some of the new tech in the peloton, with Lizzy doing some top level sleuthing on the roads around Girona.
