To my mind, these Global Cycling Network videos are for the fans only. If you’re not a fan, this video might win you over—or at least help you understand why these real time videos appeal to true aficionados.
This is like an immersive video game that tracks your rider down the Col D’Izoard, part of the 2014 Tour de France. It can be pretty exhilarating but, like descending in real life, this feels like a lot longer than seven minutes. That’s a great way to feel about a real life descent, but not how you want to think of a video.
The Col Collective’s real time descent of the Passo Gavia is a thrill anyone will enjoy, even if it seems long at times too.
