5 Vs 1 | How Many Roadies Does It Take To Beat A Time Trial Bike? This Is Getting Ridiculous...

Publicerades den 27 mar 2021
You've probably wondered how many fast road cyclists it takes to beat one aerodynamic time trialist, and frankly, this is getting ridiculous. After the embarrassing defeat for the road bike in '4 vs 1' which saw Ollie dropped and unable to contribute to the group, it was time for the boys to call in a professional....

  • Did the result surprise you? Should we get two people on time trial bikes for our next experiment?

  • Is it not timed to when the last rider gets to the line?

  • “Conor, just try and be less of a house”

  • That was amazing and staggering it takes 5 guys to top a time trial bike. Was very amazing

  • He shouldn’t change the wheels...

  • It shouldve been how many GCN presenters on road bikes vs Pro on TT bike.

  • まじでイギリス英語ききとれねぇずら

  • Pro TT rider v.5 please!

  • I'd be VERY curious just how much time, percentage wise, the pro spent at the front pulling everyone else along. I'm going to guess he probably spent over well 50% of the time on the front.

  • Now put the blue guy on a tt-bike and let team red chase him :)

  • Is this on Strava as a segment? I'd love to have a go if I'm ever in the neighbourhood :-)

  • connor brought kids out for a bike ride👍👌😂😂😂

  • wow Manon drives a veloster N! cool car :)

  • Technically Si still wins as again they finish a man down and there only as fast as there slowist man

  • Nice looking TT bike

  • ollie and hank

  • So entertaining realy like it.

  • Should not have changed the wheels and tires.

  • Hank is the man Ya Know

  • Good fun. Thx!!

  • Loved the Mockumentary style.

  • TTT vs 6 riders!

  • 5roadies vs 2 TT pls

  • @5:00 that's me getting dropped off bunch rides

  • What does this bike cost?

  • 6:00 That pro guy thinking "shit now I still need to train an extra 2 hours, I thought I would get enough training doing this".

  • You guys need some serious training on the technique of team time trailing...

  • Are you sure that is Simon and not Ricky Gervais

  • Saúde é oque interessa!

  • 30s @ 1000watts.. FML

  • Best miniseries!! And finally a proper 4 v 1 (sorry Ollie). Still the best time for the team, better than any of Cy’s.

  • Ollie is for the people.

  • I watched the whole video, but I’m still waiting for the 5v1 to start.

  • Love it!

  • I love these

  • Manon is the star of GCN crew, more Manon!

  • Finally! The road riders won!!! :)

  • How come the tt bike has that case on the bottom?

  • I have subscribed your channel from the video gmbn vs gcn


  • 2tt bikes vs 5 Rodies

  • The magenta france disappointedly ruin because europe markedly excite unlike a white trumpet. extra-large extra-small exuberant, phobic candle

  • The null fowl distally chew because mascara multivariably dare across a zonked instruction. yielding, oval domain

  • Olie celebrated like He helped the team.... HAHA

  • Some of your best work!!! I loved this! :)

  • Si is soo smug in the beginning

  • why nobody didn't give a hug to the blue guy he was soo waiting for it..

  • Ollie is the darling of GCN fans. You represent us as the non-ex- pro. WE LOVE YOU, Ollie!!! Next time, Ollie should be on eBike... And Manon roll up the window on Ollie... that was hilarious! I can't stop laughing.. Poor Ollie...

  • best, so funny!! great!

  • What about a tandem against TT race or the multiple rider bike races that were around in the 30s. senewss.info/slow/oa-zaduChcqPoqY/video

  • Oh ollie... Dropped again?

  • lol bravo

  • This was a great entertaining video but sooooooo not fair. The pro rider is clearly the determining factor here. He wasn’t even winded at the end.

  • 3:55-4:20 🤣🤣🤣

  • Because a blue one...

  • You're genius, awesome series of video, really the best you've done, thanks everyone ! (Huge thumbs UP for Manon 🤩🤣)

  • how about 5v2 or 5v3...hh

  • Now put the pro on that aero bike!

  • yall have no tiktok?

  • In the TDF and Giro it’s the 5th rider’s time that counts. So strictly speaking Si won because Ollie got dropped....again. Here’s to another video! 😀

  • My god I really love how TT bikes look 😍

  • No Si, the limiting factor is the disc brake

  • 1,000W for 30 secs 👀

  • Absolutely loved this series!!!

  • Next up. A recumbent piloted by an experienced 50 year old against Si. No beach shorts and flip flops though.

  • If gcn was not sponsored by pereli tyres and gave si some continental gp5000 he would have probably been 10-15 seconds faster

  • Lol=) I remember when it was two roadies Vs one trial roader. Then was a video with three roadies Vs one, and now here are five roadies. Guys, you are really crazy=)

  • Give us Velomobile vs TT bike.

  • "that's prob'ly like 7 watts"


  • 30mph into a head wind is insane

  • That bar end tape was NOT 7 watts

  • To be fair Ollie isn't an ex-pro. That's all the difference in the world.

  • so cool that was fun

  • Stupid qs... But how does a group beat a more aero bike? Rather how mechanically speaking does more people get progressively quicker than Si on a tt bike?

  • Manon was the star of this video

  • Toads vs Roads... as we like to call’em. 🐸. Thanks for sharing this series. Very entertaining. Really sheds light on the wheel suckers in group ride who bring the TT bikes. (Whoowah).

  • What's the name of this course? I would like to see if it is on Rouvy!!!

  • Is anybody have an second hand road bike🙏

  • congrat guys hahaha

  • manon is so so very cute really god

  • What was Ollie's time? Great video team, I really enjoyed the series

  • Seeing Manon roll up the window on Ollie was about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen…

  • Great fun watching! Curious what the route is. Is this on Strava or RideWithGPS someplace?

    • Poor Ollie now I feel so bad for him, big kudos for the big efforts.

  • This needs a redo..Come on Si...

  • The whole series has to be done in a velodrome. Only then it'll be fair.

  • so I guess its over huh

  • We want Sir Bradley Wiggins at team Si

  • 1000w for 30sec ... sheesh

  • Are Manon and Dan Lloyd related?

  • Ollie asking for a bottle and Manon putting the window up... comedy gold🏅😂

  • No matter how hard you deepsectioncarbonwheels yourself, if you’re Ollie, you’ll always get dropped.

  • 6 v 1 ? im excited

  • The fact they needed a top professional to pace them to beat Si, says it all.

  • Turns out pro riders are fast

  • Mannon and Ollie stole the show💯🏁 Bombastic!!❤️

  • I love the country side more than anything.

  • Manon cheering is just so wholesome

  • Ollie got drop in the down hill!!!!

  • Poor Ollie now I feel so bad for him, big kudos for the big efforts.
