Podcast 2015 Episode 23 – Sweden Is Nice But It’s No Norway
Hi everyone! Did you know that Sarah went to Norway? She survived the trolls, swam in a fjord and invaded Sweden; it was a busy weekend for her. Also there was a bike race there! In addition, we finish recapping the Route de France and then talk excitedly about some new developments from the UCI for 2016. And to top it all off we invent a new game called “But what does it mean for the Olympics?” – the first edition is all about Team USA. (1:20:03 MIN / 76.86 MB)
