Podcast only: Spring Classics Special Edition

The Bike Show may be off air, but come with us on a trip to Belgium, home of the Flemish hard men and De Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders). Along the way I get a surprise tour of the legendary showers at the Roubaix velodrome (pictured left).

    Really enjoyable podcast this one – it’s amazing how much of the atmosphere can be conveyed by radio sometimes.

    Great stuff.

    Jack, really enjoyed this too. The pauses, the atmosphere, the enjoyment tangible in your voice, the music. Tres bon!

    Brilliant podcast, best for a long time and one that has to be submitted to speechify.com. It captures how much the Spring Classics are so different to the rest of the Grand Tours focussed season.

    It is indeed a pleasurable experience to hear your very listenable and descriptive presentations.
    A quite different experience to my own ex Sydney Waterfront vernacular.
    Capisce!
