Hi team, this week Sarah and Dan round up all that’s fit to know about Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, including the best of social media, blogs and videos. We also get excited about upcoming races and salute our friend Jens’ love of Dutch Style Racing. There’s some great photos and videos from around the traps, including some excellent pieces from the track world championships, some downhill mountain bike and (Sarah’s favourite) some bikecam footage. Listen now for all the insanity and more Dutch Style Racing than you can poke a stick at. (1:03:59 MIN / 61.43 MB)
