On this episode, Fred and Andy link up to discuss the wet and dramatic opening week of the Giro d'Italia, which saw two favorites bit adieu before the race even got started. They also discuss the talking points from the Amgen Tour of California: EF Education First's strategy, Tadej Pogacar's ascendance, and the success of young riders. Then, we hear from Brent Bookwalter at the Giro d'Italia about life on his new team, Mitchelton-Scott. And then, we have a long conversation with Lindsay Goldman, co-owner and rider on the women's team Hagens Berman Supermint. Lindsay shares her opinions on how and how not to grow women's cycling. This episode of the VeloNews podcast is sponsored by apparel manufacturer Pactimo, which is providing its Summit Stratos 12-hour Bibs to our 2019 gravel series.
