Podcast 2017 Episode 14 – The Treble

This week’s episode covers a lot of historic moments in the midst of a very dynamic 2017 season. There’s Tour of the Gila in the US and Omloop van Borsele to cover off, along with the first ever women’s edition of Liege-Bastogne-Liege in all it’s conTEXT and glory. There’s some interesting articles from during the week including the latest edition of Ella’s SHE-cret Pro which seems to have stirred up a bit of controversy. In addition to which we take the time to appropriately thank the UCI for their help with making La Course more La Course-y than ever before.
