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

This week the podcast hits the road. Caley Fretz has a dispatch from Spain, where he’s attending Cannondale – Drapac’s first team camp of the season, including a bit of breaking news from one of Cannondale’s top climbers regarding the … hour record.

Yes, really. Why does the hour record have to be flat? Cannondale’s Joe Dombrowski has a novel idea for an uphill version, measured in meters of elevation gained. Plus, Andrew Talansky tells tales of beers and Pierre Rolland discusses his Giro/Tour goals.

Then the band gets back together in Boulder and Fred Dreier, Spencer Powlison, and Fretz discuss a recent VeloNews feature on the wild Continental circuits and cycling’s globalization. From monkey feet to bus crashes, everything is on the table — sometimes quite literally.
