Well it’s been a couple of weeks since we last talked and there’s a bit to catch up on. To start with, we enter into a huge, sprawling discussion of the value of track racing while reviewing the Glasgow Track World Cup and then after that we get a little sandy as we talk Koksijde cyclocross. Of course there’s a whole bunch of swearing and bad jokes mixed in as well. Enjoy. (52.17MIN / 50.64MB)
