Ah—it’s road season again. At least in Australia. This year’s TdU made a good effort to include pretty much every aspect of racing—breaks, big sprints, climbs, crashes I didn’t talk about, even echelons. Just don’t cross-reference it to my picks for the race earlier in the week.
Dane Cash of VeloHuman, whom you might know from this Heinrich Haussler interview, or this Tour Down Under prep piece asked me to collaborate on a race preview podcast and I was all too happy to oblige. Listen in as we share thoughts on this upcoming TdU, potential favoriates, and—of course—Simon Geschke’s beard.
