Podcast 2017 Episode 6 – Always Park For a Getaway

cropped-podcast-logo.jpgThis week we catch up on the opening races of the classics season. The Omloops (het Nieuwsblad and van het Hageland aka Tielt-Winge), and Le Samyn des Dames. It’s been a great opening to European racing with diverse pelotons and results! There’s a lot to unpack and enjoy, there’s also track racing to catch up on and some other news from around the traps. Remember to park for a clean getaway and then settle in for a hell of a listen. (1:32:02 MIN / 84.26 MB)
