VN Show: Bjarne is back, Zipp’s whale wheels, Sky’s kit

We discuss Bjarne Riis's controversial return to pro cycling team management, some weird new wheels, and Team Sky's (not Rapha) kit.

On this week’s VeloNews Show, Bjarne Riis is back in pro cycling, and we’re sure that he’ll soon force his riders to hike up a mountain, sleep in the woods, or perform aerobics. But what are his plans for Oleg Tinkov?

Plus, we take a peek at Zipp’s new aerodynamic wheels, which the company says take design cues from whales. What other animal technology could be applied to cycling? The possibilities are endless.

Finally, we voice some reader tweets on Team Sky’s new kits. What do those lines on the abdomen really mean? All that and more on this week’s VeloNews Show!
