In this week's episode, we discuss the finale of the Giro d'Italia over the weekend, with a special appearance by the former Axeon Hagen's Berman soigneur, Reed McCalvin. Briefly, the Vuelta is discussed, as well as De Panne, the end of the one-days, and the end of the Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team.
For Nerd Alert, James has thoughts about the skinsuit seen on Tao Geoghegan Hart on the final day of the Giro and a pair of new Oakley's seen on Chris Froome at the Vuelta.
Giant’s ninth-generation TCR family follows in the footsteps of other major players in the industry in that it now adds a generous dose of aerodynamic shaping to its previously light-and-stiff formula. However, the family of carbon fiber frames has also gone on a diet, gains a newly refined geometry, and — of course — has room for bigger tires, all while still retaining its superb stiffness and composed ride quality.
We sat down with two of the engineers behind the bike for a deep dive on its creation.

Canyon has today officially unveiled its third-generation Aeroad aero road racing machine. As expected, it’s more efficient aerodynamically than its forebear, with modern features such as fully hidden cabling, a disc-only format, and a proprietary integrated cockpit. However, it’s also stiffer than the previous version while retaining that model’s admirable comfort levels.
We sat down with the engineers behind the new Aeroad.

Finally, we chat with Tadej Pogacar's coach.
