De Gendt wins solo in Catalunya; the longest day at Cape Epic: Daily News Digest
A driverless car hit and killed a woman walking her bike across a road in Tempe, Arizona last weekend. The incident is a reminder that autonomous vehicle technology is still in its development phase, and reopened questions as to whether such vehicles are truly ready for public roads. We chat with the advocate and journalist Peter Flax about the coming wave of autonomous vehicles.
But first, Milan-San Remo! The first monument of the year was last Sunday, and Neal and Caley break down the finale then argue over how good the race actually is. Then they go on a massive tangent about covering the Tour de France and how the reporting game has changed.
Plus, Flax stays on the line to chat about his story on cyclingtips.com about the Crash Race, which is exactly as nuts as it sounds.
