Podcast #19: Vuelta week 1 – Little Chris Horner sat in a corner

Kathi and Chris are rejoined by Tim, who sat out the Vuelta preview while he turned up in Tuscany a month early for the World Championships. (It’s okay, he did complete his whereabouts form.)

Definition of the combination classification: The white jersey or combination classification is calculated by adding the numeral ranks of each rider in the general, points and mountain classifications, with the lowest total being the leader of the competition. (So if you are first on GC, second on points and fourth in the mountains, your total score is seven.)

Was it just us, or did Chris Horner‘s victory celebration on stage ten remind anyone of The Karate Kid? No? Just us?
