Podcast: Cobblestone kickoff; Bookwalter interview

We are approaching one of the most exciting times of the cycling season — spring classics. Here is what to expect on opening weekend in Belgium.

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

Get psyched … the spring cobbled classics start Saturday with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad! We look ahead to the two Belgian races this weekend. To do that, we take a quick look back at the action from last week’s flurry of one-week races.

Plus, we catch up with Brent Bookwalter at the UAE Tour. He talks to Fred about the transition to Mitchelton-Scott, his motivation to keep racing, and the Australian culture.
