YOU PROBABLY MEAN "GC" WHICH STANDS FOR "GENERAL CLASSIFICATION" OR THE OVERALL RACE LEADER STANDINGS. THE GC LEADER GETS TO WEAR THE PINK JERSEY IN THE GIRO, OR THE YELLOW JERSEY IN THE TOUR DE FRANCE.

CG COULD ALSO MEAN CENTER OF GRAVITY. WITH BOB ROLL, YOU NEVER KNOW.

it could be very short hand for "Go ahead and turn off your Caps lock key" which is a sign of shouting or anger in most internet forum protocol....

Not a big deal, but some people get touchy about this issue.

but mohair_chair is correct... it is for General Classification, which just means the Overall standings.

Example is if Bob says "that rider is allowed to get away, because he is not a threat to the GC" when talking about a breakaway that is not being chased down, he means "that guy has absolutely no chance of winning the race at the end of three weeks and therefore this breakaway is insignificant. The pack won't waste time and energy chasing him down."

Hope that helps you out.
