Welcome to the VeloNews cycling podcast, where we discuss the latest trends, news, and controversies in the world of cycling.
News leaked out this week that SRAM is developing a new 12-speed eTap component group. We bring tech editor Dan Cavallari on the show to discuss its likely features and what it takes to increase the size of a cassette.
Then, we serve up some takes on the 2019 Giro d’Italia route. Will the mountainous back half of the race make up for what seems like a boring start? Who will win it?
And finally we talk to Geoff Kabush who dared to ride a gravel bike in a mountain bike race… And in fact, he won Iceman Cometh on those curly bars.
