And we’re back! Boedi returns from the beach with an ambulance-filled race report from the Pensacola Cycling Classic. The gang wraps the Vuelta with their best and worst, and Sir Cheerio presents T-Bone with a selection of Spanish cheeses for his third place finish in the Vuelta fantasy league. Boedi leads the longest lightning round ever to wrap the road season and preview worlds, then talks to the Riot Girls about BAWSE Cross, before Matt and Townsend deliver on what listeners have been waiting for since the podcast started – a deep dive into the UCI World Cup of Cyclocross. Who’s in…?
It’s finally time to talk about cyclocross… but first, Sir Cheerio does a Vuelta lightning round, Boedi gives us hot takes on his new favorite race, and TBone momentarily forgets that he coined the expression “Superdomes-teej”. Finally on to the dirt, the gang celebrates the official start of the ‘cross season including early season racing in China, a few quick takes on the DVV and WCCX, and a preview of the DSGP season in Louisiana and Mississippi.
We’re getting the band back together!Boedi Boedi has a total eclipse of the Vuelta, T-Bone talks us through the LAMBRA champs and Sir Cheerio gets his calipers out. Cross is finally here!* *almost here
LAMBRA Criterium Champs happened in Gulfport, and T-Bone was there to cover it. Boedi won a silver medal, Sir Cheerio is still wearing his gold medal from last week, and all of T-Bone’s medals are stuck at home unfortunately with his daughter (who won them).
In a new edition of Pedicab Confessions, the crew gangs up on some guy in Aaron’s tricycle who doesn’t know how to use a steering wheel, Matt is the only one this episode who knows anything about bike racing (and he knows very little), Boedi picks Chris Horner to win the Vuelta, and T-Bone gets pumped to cut some grass in the team’s new sport utility vehicle.
We’re back after a rest week with all new podcasting equipment! Hopefully you can hear the difference or otherwise we wasted a big bit of $$$! Against the backdrop of a flooded New Orleans, the gang riffs on silly-season transfer news. Boedi finds he’s great at goldsprints (photography), T-Bone gets way too excited about cyclocross, and Sir Cheerio goes digging for aero and comes back with gold!
Ryan Clark’s excellent troll:
With Sir Cheerio on family vacy, we ask friend and fellow cyclist, Aaron “Plus Three” Viles to join us. Aaron debuts his “Pedicab Confessions” and we argue over the proper pronunciation of “Barguil”. TDF picks, #crossiscoming and a bonus at the end of the episode.
Special guest Charlie Thomas of Bike Law Louisiana talks about Bike Law, and we do a little roundtable Tour de France roundup.
EDITORS NOTE: we recorded this episode before #FREESAGAN, so excuse our lack of hot takes on that incident (we’ll have plenty next week!).
On this week’s episode the trio go over local group rides, LE TOUR stages 1-3 and the pro and amatuer crit nats.
On this week’s episode of the #poddy, Matt makes a bold choice for the Tour, Boedi asks what the hell has Aru done lately, and Townsend starts wearing budgie smugglers and sleeveless jerseys.
