Luke Durbridge is back on the pod for our yearly chat about our favourite time of the year, the brutally beautiful cobbled classics.
You don’t have to ask either of us twice to sit down and chat about this period, but seeing as I’m on a slightly different race schedule this year and didn’t ride Opening Weekend I was keen to sit down and debrief how that first weekend back in Belg really came off. How hectic was it really, who was flying, who wasn’t and things I might not have seen watching at home from the TV.
We chat what’s coming up for both of us and jump into the questions you sent in, covering everything from the craziest sector to our favourite tech to ride (is it a classics button or a climbing button?) to what happens when you abandon. And there’s the Belgi beer (of course).
A big thank you to everyone who sent in their questions, I hope we answered them and more.
Enjoy the chat and be sure to get in touch and let me know what you thought.
