Podcast 2016 Episode 31 – Melbourne’s Name is Mud

Podcast logoThis week we take a deep breath as Qatar’s World Championships is just around the corner. We’ve got a few races to talk about in the Giro dell’Emilia and Gran Premio Bruno Beghelli. There’s also been the latest US leg of the Cyclocross World Cups and in classic fashion we manage to find heaps of controversy to discuss along the way. This includes everything from the latest UCI publicity around the Women’s World Tour, the TTT event in Qatar, TUEs, hacking and more. Dan also potentially manages to offend entire states in both Australia and the US. Just another week on the podcast! (1:14:13 MIN / 67.95 MB)
