On this episode, Fred and Andy link up to discuss the wet and wild opening week of the Giro d’Italia, which saw Primoz Roglic jump to an early lead. They also discuss the talking points from the Amgen Tour of California: EF Education First’s strategy, Tadej Pogačar’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 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.
