VeloVoices Podcast 186: Christmas Party Time!!

Don your glad rags, fill your champagne flute and take a seat because it’s the VeloVoices Christmas Party and YOU’RE invited.*

Kathi, Luke, Midge, Issie and Euan come armed with party games which (kind of) look back on the 2021 pro cycling season.

Play along with Midge’s Hipster Quotes Game, Kathi’s Connections, Issie’s Higher or Lower and Euan’s Game For The Ages.

Along the way, we cover forgotten Giro winners, the Olympics, the classics and grumpy old men.

We hope you enjoy listening, let us know how you got on with the games and, from everyone at VeloVoices Towers, have a great Christmas!

*Covid passport required. Sorry Andrew.

We also say goodbye to Andre Greipel and Nicolas Roche. Oh – and at the end? We have Italian riders dancing in cleats!!!!!
