The Recon Ride Podcast – ENECO Tour 2016

The Recon Ride ENECO Tour 2016

Episode 57: ENECO Tour 2016

No one disputes that the Spring Classics are awesome, and the ENECO Tour smartly re-packages them into a week-long stage race in September. As the WorldTour draws to a close, Dane Cash and I discuss the likely favorites and the surprising conclusion to the season, which could see the winningest squad from this year’s Tour de France dropped from the top tier of the sport. You should also read Dane’s extended essay on why that’s exactly how the WorldTour is supposed to work.

The Recon Ride Podcast – Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France 2016

26 Aug

The Recon Ride Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France 2016

Episode 53: Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France 2016

Not exactly sure why I even bother to put a date after the ever-changing name of this event, but poor event branding not withstanding, while Dane Cash and I have comparatively little to say on this largely underrated race, the overwhelming majority of it is pretty positive.

Episode 51: Olympic Road Race 2016

I don’t beat around the bush that the Quadrennial Entity isn’t exactly my favorite sporting event in the world. But Dane Cash is enough of a fan that…*sigh* I guess we can do a podcast on it.

The Recon Ride Clasica San Sebastian 2016

Episode 50: Clasica San Sebastian 2016

I’m off the grid this weekend, but Dane and I still recorded a podcast. I’m expecting it to be live on his site by now, but since this is an auto-scheduled post, YMMV. San Sebastián is a cool race regardless, and one that deserves quite a bit more attention.

The Recon Ride – Tour de France 2016, Part 3

19 Jul

The Recon Ride Tour de France 2016

Episode 49: Tour de France, Part 3

Ok, so Team Sky and Chris Froome are definitely in charge of this year’s Tour de France. But a truly inhumane third week means the 2016 race is far from over. Dane Cash of of VeloHuman may have other opinions, and—after a thorough listen to our discussion—I’m sure you will, too.
