In this episode of the road.cc Podcast, we’re debriefing after awards season and talking hardcore virtual racing on Zwift. George is joined by Jack, tech editor Mat Brett and senior road.cc reviewer Stu Kerton to break down how road.cc does the road.cc Recommends awards, and bike industry trends of the past year are discussed. We also address some of the wilder theories about how we select our products of the year!

In part 2, George and Jack are joined by off.road.cc editor Aaron Borrill and e-sports expert Chris Schwenker. We’re very proud that our colleague Aaron is representing South Africa at the UCI Cycling Esports World Championships on 18th February, and in this chat he tells us all about how he got into it, virtual race tactics and how to balance a demanding work schedule, family life and elite racing. Chris, who runs The Zommunique.com virtual cycling blog, tells us how the sport has evolved from enthusiasts racing underground on Zwift to a fully pro set-up, and what’s in store for the future.
