This week we talk up a storm about the Ride London GP, the Route de France, Tour of Utah women’s race and a whole heap of mountain biking, BMX stuff, blogs, videos and… (much to his dismay) Dan’s love life. In Dan’s own words, this is our worst podcast ever (Sarah disagrees, she thinks it’s Brilliant!). And, as always, don’t forget to check out the veritable treasure trove of links, videos and things to look at below! (1:05:59 MIN / 63.35 MB)
We love this blog by Chloe Hosking, on dealing with disappointment at the Commonwealth Games – every time she writes a blog we think “best blog ever”, and then she does it again!
