The Recon Ride Podcast: Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2015

24 Apr

Episode 10: Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2015 Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I discuss Liege-Bastogne-Liege, which is the oldest race…anywhere. Longer climbs than most classics, a ton of potential launch points, a ridiculous array of potential favorites, layers of history, and just the tiniest bit of post-industrial gloom make this Monument (if you think that’s a thing) […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Amstel Gold & Fleche Wallonne 2015

18 Apr

Episode 9: Amstel Gold & Fleche Wallonne 2015 The youngest of the Spring Classics, Amstel Gold is punctuated by 30+ climbs and incessant road furniture. Wednesday’s Fleche Wallone takes riders over the photogenically steep Mur de Huy three times. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) is back in the US to help me discuss the events, […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Paris-Roubaix 2015

Episode 8: Paris-Roubaix They call it the Queen of the Classics—long, pan-flat, jarring and legendary. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) continues his European tour, interviewing my race favorite Sky’s Brad Wiggins, his teammate Gerraint Thomas, and MTN Qhubeka’s American veteran, Tyler Farrar. In addition, we both pontificate on the history, the most important cobbled segments, […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Volta a Catalunya 2015

21 Mar

Episode 5: Volta a Catalunya 2015 Pre-race Show Unlike the previous episode, Catalunya is a race I’ve never taken too deep a look at before. But at the insistence of Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) I fumble through the stages and start list, and try to prognosticate on things that might happen and people who […]
