Neal, James and Caley are back in the basement for the first time in nearly a month and open this week's episode with a pressing question: Is Liege-Bastogne-Liege finally exciting? And, follow up, why can't ASO give us live coverage of the women's race? 

That discussion ties into the second part of the show, which digs into the Rapha Roadmap for the future of road cycling. This massive document lays out problems with pro cycling, and proposes solutions. But would those solutions work? And who would implement them? 

In this week's Nerd Alert, James poses a reader question: Does a product's place or origin matter?

We're back in a basement, though it's not the same basement. Neal has some sort of flu, so Caley and James are in James' basement this week, along with Dane Cash. The three discuss Mathieu van der Poel's incredible Amstel Gold victory — one of the most amazing finishes we've ever seen — and Kasia Niewiadoma's daring attack, then look ahead to Fleche Wallonne. 

In this week's Nerd Alert, James chats with a tubeless rim manufacturer that isn't happy with the new tubeless "standard."

Dave Everett and Caley Fretz begin their Sunday in Hell with a walk around the pits at the start in Compiegne, chatting with Silca's Josh Poertner about tire optimization. Then they hop in their rental car and head out on course. 

Will their oil pan survive? What does it feel like to stand on the final corner before the Roubaix velodrome? These and other important questions, answered herein.

The new Specialized Roubaix launched this week, and you've probably seen the headlines: It has a new Future Shock, aero tube shapes, stealthy, sleek looks, and more.

Just as we did with the Venge last summer, we wanted to dig deeper. So we asked for an early test bike, rode it, and then flew to Specialized headquarters in Morgan Hill, California, sat down with the engineers and product managers behind the bike. 

This podcast goes deep into the development of the Roubaix, from early mistakes to tricky fixes to final product.

It's holy week, and this week's episode comes from the ground at the Tour of Flanders, including interviews at the Antwerp depart and Oudenaarde finish.

Caley is joined by Dave Everett for a wander around the Flanders, including chats with the John Degenkolb, Heinrich Haussler, Taylor Phinney, Ruth Winder, Jonathan Vaughters, and more. 

Caley takes you inside the celebrations at EF, and Dave settles an age-old question: Socks over leg warmers, or under?

It's here. Holy week. Flanders, Roubaix, the best one-day races all year. Neal, James, and Caley start off the show with a look at E3 and Gent-Wevelgem, and what they tell us about the way things could play out across the fields of Belgium and northern France.

On this week's Nerd Alert, James calls up the researcher behind Virginia Tech's third-party helmet safety tests to get the real story behind all the claims and counterclaims that have been thrown around since Bontrager announced its Wavecell helmet line.
