This week’s episode of the VeloNews Show is sponsored by Rotor, which invites everyone to check out its new 2INPower (Twin Power) dual-sided power meter. The 2INPower has eight sensors and measures up to 200 data points per second. Rotor also designed a handy smartphone app that measures your watts and shows you dead spots in your pedal stroke.

The word of the week for today’s VeloNews Show is “domination.” Alejandro Valverde dominated La Flèche-Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. The Boels-Dolmans squad dominated the entire Ardennes week, going 1-2 at all three events. Rally Pro Cycling dominated the Tour of the Gila, winning four of five stages and the overall. Who was most dominant? We hash it out.

Valverde has dominated the Ardennes for so long now that we think the races should enact some Valverde-centric new rules. What rules, do you ask? Maybe we require Valverde to race on the old vintage bikes from his first year as a pro (2002). Aluminum frame, Dura-Ace 8-speed and all.

All that and more on this week’s VeloNews Show!
