VeloVoices Podcast 165: Cool heads and Movistar madness

Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan gather again at VeloVoices Towers to look back the final week of the 2020 Vuelta.

We discuss:

  • An appreciation of time trials
  • A change at the top of FDJ
  • The man who never looks back
  • The wonkiness of the 2020 season
  • Cross is a-comin’

It’s a full-on celebration of the very last cycling action of the year as we squeeze every last drop out of the racing while we can.

VeloVoices Podcast 164: Let it go, let it go, it was four blooming years ago

Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan gather again at Velovoices Towers to look back on the second week of the Vuelta.

From Movistar’s extreme effort to shop steward Chris Froome we pick apart the race.

  • Kathi’s full of reverence for Roglic
  • Luke has virtual hugs for Hugh Carthy
  • Midge is Gaga for Gaudu
  • And Euan just adores the Angliru

Plus, in nostalgia corner, Kathi brings up a 4 year old beef that time has not healed.

VeloVoices Podcast 163: Plan B, plan C, plan for jackets, plan for small horses

Kathi, Midge and Euan get together after a week of two simultaneous grand tours and try to have coherent thoughts!

  • Have Ineos really reinvented cycling to win the Giro? (clue: no)
  • Sunweb and Quickstep impress the hell out of us.
  • How hard is it to put on a jacket?
  • What next for the “old-timers”?
  • Can the Vuelta get any more nuts?

From Jai to Joao and from Hugh Carthy to horses, we manage to cover it all* as the action moved between Italy and Spain.

*we maybe spent about ten seconds discussing the actual winner of the Giro.
