The news that GCN+ would be closing caused shockwaves among cycling fans on Wednesday.

The streaming service and app was well liked and used across the world as an way of watching bike racing from the biggest events like the Tour de France and the Classics to more minor events like the Tour of Britain and rounds of the Superprestige cyclo-cross competition. There is also a library of over 200 films about cycling, on topics as varied as cycling in Africa and the story of Andrea Tafi.

News editor

Adam is Cycling Weekly’s news editor – his greatest love is road racing but as long as he is cycling on tarmac, he's happy. Before joining Cycling Weekly he spent two years writing for Procycling, where he interviewed riders and wrote about racing. He's usually out and about on the roads of Bristol and its surrounds. Before cycling took over his professional life, he covered ecclesiastical matters at the world’s largest Anglican newspaper and politics at Business Insider. Don't ask how that is related to cycling.
