VeloVoices Podcast 192: Bring Back Katusha!

Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan convene at VeloVoices Towers to discuss the first week of the 2022 Giro d’Italia.

There’s a lot of love for Juan Pedro Lopez, Thomas De Gendt, Guillaume Martin, Biniam Girmay and many more.

We chat about how GCN have upped their game (lots of Robbie love), how Hungary embraced the race and, in a rare occurrence, we all agree on who we’d really like to win the Giro.

For the hipsters, Midge delivers a breakdown of Tro Bro Leon and find out about Luke’s search for the perfect extra thick milkshake.
