Sepp Kuss became the latest American to win a stage of the Tour de France on Sunday, and on today’s episode of The VeloNews Podcast we explore how the victory impacted people in Kuss’ cycling-mad hometown of Durango, Colorado.

John Livingston covered Sepp Kuss for the Durango Herald for the last five years, and on Sunday, Livingston wrote his final story for the newspaper — a feature story on Kuss’s big win. Livingston explains why Kuss is such an important figure in Durango, and why the small town continues to produce world-class cyclists.

Then, Andrew Hood and James Startt file their dispatch from Andorra, and discuss why so many pro cyclists have moved to the high-altitude destination. Hint: it has more to do with Andorra’s tax laws than the awesome training. All that and more on today’s episode.
