The Recon Ride Podcast: Tour de Pologne 2015

31 Jul

Episode 21: Tour de Pologne Not unlike San Sebastian, the Tour of Poland falls into a weird spot in the calendar. But as Dane Cash (@velohuman / and I explore, it’s a surprisingly unique event, with a habit of turning up new champions, and maybe more in common with the Belgian races in April […]

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2015

Dane Cash (@velohuman / and I recap the previous week, talk a bit with Bicycling’s Whit Yost (@whityost), who’s recently returned from the Tour itself, and make some predictions on what will happen as […]
