Podcast: Coryn Rivera on worlds, and the Valverde debate

We hear from Coryn Rivera on how the action played out at Innsbruck worlds and discuss why cycling fans are leery of Alejandro Valverde.

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

Best worlds ever? The Innsbruck edition of the UCI World Road Championships certainly had tons of exciting action. We hear from Team USA rider Coryn Rivera on how the action played out and what it was like for her to make that bold breakaway in the elite women’s race.

Then, we discuss Alejandro Valverde. He won the rainbow jersey with magnificent cunning, but for some, he is a symbol of the bad-old-days of early 2000s doping. How do we feel about having a world champion who served a doping ban after Operacion Puerto?

All that and much more on this podcast.
