Alberto’s new kit, Cadel’s race and the weekly Rant: The Bunch, Episode two.

by Dave Everett


Welcome to episode two of The Bunch, a weekly show in which we round up the latest racing and tech news, plus what’s going on here at CyclingTips, with dispatches from our reporters around the world.

If you missed episode one, well, shame on you! It’s lucky we live in an era where you can catch up on these things after the fact. Keep an eye out for The Bunch every week.

Dave Everett opens this week’s show at home in Annecy, France, where he runs through the racing news from last weekend. Then we take a look at where the Angry Asian visited this week in California, and get a report from Matt’s de Neef and the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race.

We also highlight some of the best articles and video from the past week. All are linked below.
