Podcast 2016 Episode 9 – Dan Remembers His Name

Podcast logoThis week we catch up on all the action from Trofeo Binda, including the Trofeo da Moreno which is part of the new Junior Nations Cup. There’s heaps of action from the para-cycling world championships and some big announcements about upcoming races. We’ve inverted the usual time of day and Dan’s struggling to cope with being awake in the morning. He does remember his name though. (1:09:50 MIN / 63.9 MB)
