March Video Vault: From Rome to San Remo

After doing our video awards post after the Oscars, we realised that you all really love to watch cycling videos as much as we do! So, once a month or so, we are going to be gathering some of our favourite recent videos and posting them here in a feature we’ll call the Video Vault. This initial selection takes us from a journey from Rome to San Remo via the Passo dello Stelvio.

If you have a video you think should be included in our monthly round-ups, tweet a link to @kiss_my_panache. Enjoy the show!

With the big spring Classics coming up, we select our fantasy eight-man team to contest Milan-San Remo, Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. (No egos were bruised in the recording of this podcast. Well, not much, anyway.)

We also recap all the latest races and answer questions from our followers in our closing Sprint Finish.

Strade Bianche has only been in existence for six years, yet it has the feel of an historic race. And it was just as exciting this year as last, with a surprise winner and a Velvet Samurai powering into second. This set of photographs gives a feel of the run-up to the race and the day itself.
