We open this week's episode with a recap of recent racing, plus a call-in from our man in the Middle East, Dane Cash.

Then, in Nerd Alert, James calls up Josh Poertner to ask about the entry of tubeless tires into the world of pro cycling. Josh says they'll be everywhere in five years. 

This episode wraps up with a chat about riding across Kyrgyzstan.
