Learn Italian with Hans & Rob! We don't actually speak Italian, but the Dutch stages of the Giro have taught us a few new words, like caduta and dolorante.
How about some Russian (or maybe Kazakh)? And I quote: "Vino - super! Весь Казахстан верит в тебя и гордится тобой! Ты остаешься примером мужественности и силы духа, за это тебя и любят многомиллионные твои поклонники! Удачи и побед!" -reader comment, VeloNews
In the first half of the podcast we cover the first 3 stages of the Giro, preview the TTT stage, then halfheartedly attempt to recap the Tour of the Gila, and finally, we totally #fail to recap the Tour of Romandy. It's Grand Tour time! Who cares about those training rides now?!

This podcast is being uploaded with the fancy new Libsyn 3. You probably won't notice anything different, but there will be all kinds of surprises coming up soon, including an iPhone app so you don't have to bother downloading to your computer. That is, if I can sort it all out.
Hans and Rob recorded this podcast just before Rob left for Korea. There were some issues with our Libsyn.com subscription, so the podcast wasn't uploaded until after the Korea trip (now). Sorry about that!
In this podcast we covered various topics including all the major races since the Paris-Roubaix, up until the time of recording, which including previews of the Tour of Romandy and the Tour of the Gila, which were in progress, or just about to begin. (I my memory's hazy now)
