This week Sarah and Dan recap the Trophee d’or and GP Plouay races along with a broader discussion about the summer block of racing and how it’s gone this year with the Olympics. Sarah manages to “dan” the results of at least one race and we also preview the impending cycling at the paralympics. We get stuck into the latest news in transfers and also talk about a couple of interesting new teams on the horizon. (52.52 MIN / 49.40 MB)
