VeloVoices Podcast 149: Romain’s little whiskey

It’s awards time! Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan get together round the Velovoices dining table and discuss all the nominations for the 2019 Velovoices Awards.

Highlights include:

  • The Tour de France stage that changed Luke’s whole outlook on cycling
  • Just how damn hot is Julian Alaphilippe?
  • And the Tirreno-Adriatico stage that time seems to have forgotten (by everyone except Midge)

There’s a lot of laughs along the way and some poignant moments too.
