Can Chris Froome really complete the quadruple, winning four grand tours in a row? Dan and Si discuss his challenge, and whether the reduced team sizes could lead to his downhill.

The route for the 2018 Giro d’Italia was announced last week, and it looks like it could be a classic.

Lance Armstrong is back in the news this week, as he has been allowed to use the ‘everybody else was doing it’ defence in his latest lawsuit. If he is forced to prove this, it could have major implications for the sport of cycling as a whole.

Another cross race, another Van Der Poel win, but this time it was Mathieu’s older brother David winning at the Zilvermeercross.

On tech of the week we’ve got a bike that claims to be able to prevent or protect you from any accident.

Finally, we’ve got a man in china streamlining his commutes through questionable means, some very skillful riding by some talented young riders, and we catch up with Matt in Germany.
