Our annual Trail Bike of the Year test has been completed and with the results in, we decided to get the main testers together to have a good natter about the top five bikes – what they were, why we rated them, and how we came to our eventual winner.

With the results of our Bike of the Year test out there in the open, we decided that it was an opportune time to kick off our new BikeRadar Podcast series. We sat down with our Senior Road Technical Editor Warren Rossiter, and Technical Editor Simon Withers to get the low-down on some of the key bikes in this year’s road Bike of the Year Test. Going forward we’ll have monthly chats here at BikeRadar HQ, covering topics of interest to both road and mountain bikers alike. We’ll also be producing various shorter series to run alongside, which will delve deeper into the world of road and mountain biking. The next podcast that should be on your radar will be the MBUK Trail Bike of the Year round-up, where we have an in-depth look at the top five trail bikes on the market today.
