Vuelta a España 2018 begins this weekend. Twenty-one stages from Malaga to Madrid. It’s the most open Grand Tour of the year but how crazy could it be? Euan puts down his tapas and picks up the road book to preview the race.
We’re in the middle of the third week of a cracking Giro d’Italia. But did you know if the UCI got their way the race would have finished by now? Euan asks: how the hell can they think about taking the ‘grand’ out of the grand tours?
In our 109th episode, Chris and Kathi talk about the first 9 stages of Vuelta 2017, who’s looking good in the race, and who might find their way to the podium in this season’s final grand tour. We also discuss Jack Bobridge, Wawa’s expulsion, and the possible demise of the beloved American squad, Cannondale-Drapac.
