Riding up one-way Tuna is tantamount to manslaughter. I once almost collided with two idiots coming up around a bend. I was doing 40mph. It’s one lane with a rock face on one side and a cliff off the other.
At the end Piddy complains about slow air and a headwind.
I hope this finally drops the mic on the old rim v. disc brakes debate.
You don’t descend Tuna on rim brakes. At least not quickly. lol
100%. What I meant by my comment was that this video ought to sway the old debate in favor of disc brakes.
Was it just me or did you see the fog/clouds at the start? Air looked a bit heavy. Maybe my eyes are bugging from reading/writing contracts at work.
Yeah, it was definitely foggy! Which makes his speeds all that more impressive.
Nothing like descending a California canyon to the coast, even if it is SoCal and February
Man, no chicken strips on those tires.
PCH here is the City Hospital
Ha! Pacific Coast Highway.
Lost count of the number of times I’ve watched this. Some of those longer, sweeping bends are the stuff of dreams and both riders are clearly masters of their craft.
They had a car ahead making sure all clear.
He was scouting Tuna in October 22’ (I assumed that’s when this was shot) but he’s wearing the new kit? Which means he’s been back. Also makes sense why he’s gutted at the end as he set his PR in October.
I know ineos were out here after tour down under. Maybe that’s when they shot it.
both of them almost died in this video, scary.
Time for a downhill raceoff between Matej Mohorič and Pidcock. With dropper posts.
Red Bull should bring back Road Rage! The first race was actually held on this descent. Would be awesome in a team format- pro road racers vs. pro DHers.
that makes more sense with the fog/marine layer.
Mahoric is the best descender in pro road cycling. He is the only cyclist that will identify and execute race-winning descents.
But Pidcock is a great, great bike handler.
