Podcast 2016 Episode 10 – This Week in HTFU

Podcast logoThis week’s episode is an epic one. I’m not gonna lie, Sarah and I are ridiculously excited about the news leading up to the Ronde van Vlaanderen this weekend. It’s going to be amazing. Before we get into that though we catch up on everything Gent Wevelgem! There’s the Pajot Hills Classic, the first round of the Enduro World Series (from Chile!) some BMX and whole load of other interesting bits and pieces from around the web. We also have a new pinnacle of HTFU to present and some more great news about prizemoney (and all the ways in which that’s fantastic too)! We’ve got some great rider blogs and a heap of new videos to check out below as well! (1:08:59 MIN / 63.0 MB)
