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

With a daring attack over the final climb, Vincenzo Nibali wrote himself into Milano-Sanremo history with a solo win. Did he get lucky, or was this a result of careful tactics? Which sprinters’ teams blew it in the final chase? We unpack all of the takes and analysis from the first monument of the season and talk to reporter Gregor Brown who was on the ground in Italy.

Plus, Spencer has a rundown of his trip to Oklahoma for the Land Run 100 gravel race. He didn’t end up scraping peanut-butter mud off his bike with a paint stirrer, but it was still an epic day on the bike.
