This week's episode runs through the first weekend of racing, including Annemiek van Vleuten's incredible run of wins and a spate of riders being pulled from the Vuelta a Burgos over coronavirus concerns.
In this week's Nerd Alert, we kick off with news from Mavic and its new ownership, then dig into threaded bottom brackets and why they're still not a cure-all for creaks.
How do you take a bike like the Tarmac SL6 and make it even better? In this special episode, pun intended, we sit down with the engineers behind the new Tarmac SL7 to talk optimization, aerodynamics, integration, and lots more.
Thanks to Specialized for partnering with us on this episode, and for making the engineers behind the Tarmac available for whatever questions we wanted.
This week we chat about e-racing's ability to lower barriers in Africa, debate whether Chris Froome should make Ineos' (sorry, Grenadier's) Tour de France team, and look into what a new freehub body from Campagnolo tells us about future groups from the Italians.
Bike racing approaches, and with it plenty of bike racing-related news. We run through news from the Tour de France, La Course, and the Virtual Tour de France, plus dig into Chris Froome's decision to jump to Israel Start-Up Nation.
Then, a spirited debate: How do our podcast hosts stack up as home mechanics?
This week's episode is overflowing with news, from Chris Froome's departure from Ineos to Emma Pooley and Alberto Contador's run at the Everesting record.
We open up this week's episode with the news, including discussion of Chris Froome's decision to stick with Ineos, Zwift's virtual Tour de France, and Tour de France Podcast host Rupert Guinness's virtual Race Across America.
Then, the great base layer debate. Should you wear one when it's hot? What do the pros do?
