Podcast: SRAM’s 12-speed eTap; Kabush wins Iceman on gravel bike?

The bike industry is buzzing about SRAM's new 12-speed group that was seen in spy shots this weekend. Plus, Giro route takes!

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Welcome to the VeloNews cycling podcast, where we discuss the latest trends, news, and controversies in the world of cycling.

News leaked out this week that SRAM is developing a new 12-speed eTap component group. We bring tech editor Dan Cavallari on the show to discuss its likely features and what it takes to increase the size of a cassette.

Then, we serve up some takes on the 2019 Giro d’Italia route. Will the mountainous back half of the race make up for what seems like a boring start? Who will win it?

And finally we talk to Geoff Kabush who dared to ride a gravel bike in a mountain bike race… And in fact, he won Iceman Cometh on those curly bars.
