Chris Froome has tested positive. A sample from the Vuelta a Espana was found to contain double the legal limit of the asthma drug Salbutamol. What does this mean for Froome? What exactly is Salbutamol? What does it do? Caley Fretz and Shane Stokes dig into the breaking news.

In this episode, your hosts chat with Peter Flax about his recent feature on American racing mainstay Bill Elliston, then call up Enve and Mavic to ask them about safety concerns with carbon clincher wheels. Finally, after eight positive tests at the Vuelta a Colombia, can we trust the best performances of Colombian cycling? Klaus Bellon, a writer born in Bogota and now living in the U.S., gives us a reason to believe.
