We’ve found out which riders are technically savvy and which ones are stylish in the first three episodes, but now it’s time to see who is fit as each contestant completes a strenuous test, well-known to endurance athletes as an FTP test.

At the end of the two fitness challenges, the contestant deemed “least fit” is sent home.
