Welcome to our special podcast mini-series from the Haute Route Pyrenees. Spencer Powlison is off in France doing this seven-day sportive with his friend Matt Mollo. Along the way, they’ll discuss the history of these big climbs and the delicious wines of the region. Don’t worry, as a wine importer, Matt’s an expert on natural wines… Spencer will stick to cycling (and drinking the wine).
The Haute Route Pyrenees mini-series is sponsored by Topical Edge lotion. Go to www.topicaledge.com/velonews for a free sample of a product that’s clinically proven to reduce lactic acid.
On day two, we ride the Marie-Blanque and the famous Aubisque. It wasn’t quite as hard as yesterday, but it was a good one. Plus Matt explains what natural wine actually is, and Spencer tells the story of Miguel Indurain’s downfall.
