Being dropped. Falling off the back. Getting spat. Whatever you call it, getting dropped on a bike ride is never fun. It's even less fun when you work for GCN and the whole ordeal is caught on camera. Sadly, that's what happened to Doncaster's own Ollie 'Who's off the back?!' Bridgewood when he attempted to help Conor, Alex, and Hank beat Si in our recent 4 vs 1 challenge. But what actually happened? How did someone so disciplined with his training crumble so quickly? How did the self proclaimed 'King of Aero' get dispatched almost immediately? You'll have to watch to find out...

  • Why not just do 4 on 1 with Ollie on the TT and Si in the chase group? That will tell you what kind of advantage a TT bike has.

  • Why can't you guys show your audience how teamwork is done ? Is it so cool to prove that young ex-pros always have an edge even over talented amateurs ? How about a follow-up that gets teamwork across? Olliver Bridgewood brings tons of value to your content. I can't really relate to pros but Ollie makes you guys accessible. Bit off track in my eyes.

  • "I know I'm rubbish, but not that rubbish", LoL!! :) The line I had to keep telling myself after getting dropped on my first group ride by a bunch of 60+ year old dudes with really shiny and pretty bikes LoL. I thought these guys were all talk and over the hill, but they dropped me after the first hill. To add insult to injury, two of them doubled back after the 32 mile ride to bring me back, thinking I got lost or experienced a mechanical. So I know your pain, Ollie!! You're not rubbish, LoL!!

  • Sooo, The 4 vs 1 was really 3 vs 1 (since Ollie only did 1 turn) and they only lost by 2 seconds....so they don't really need a 5 vs 1 but a different 4 vs 1 (or Ollie with improved team TT technique).
