It’s been four years in the making but this week’s podcast is possibly the most special of them all so far for the simple reason that for the very first time Sarah and Dan are recording in real life, together in the same room. Is this the episode in which someone is murdered? Is this the episode in which bickering and fighting ends the whole project? Or do we simply discuss the Tour de Yorkshire, GP Elsy Jacobs, Gracia Orlova, the forthcoming para-cycling and a bunch of cool cycling events? The only way to find out is to press play and enjoy the ride! (1:00:53 MIN / 00.0MB)
