Inside the Hour: Part 1 - Ramping It Up
Last week, GCN's Ollie Bridgewood announced that he would be taking on his biggest challenge yet: attempting to beat the hour record set by the legendary Eddy Merckx in 1972.
If you're going to take on The Cannibal, you need some big guns in your corner. To get him race ready, Ollie enlisted the help of two guys that know a thing or two about making people go fast: Coaches Neal Henderson and Mac Cassin at the SUF Science Division.
