He’s in Girona, Spain hanging out with about 100 pros who are training and getting ready for the 2018 race season. Recently, Shane published, “Human rights groups and others call on Giro d’Italia to abandon Israel start“, an article about the Giro d’Italia and the unprecedented move to take the first 3 stages off the Continent and begin in Israel.

The weather is fabulous, the riding season is in full swing, the Giro d’Italia and Amgen Tour of California are happening, and I have the honor of two more great guests this week. First up is Bobke – Mr Bob Roll himself. When I talked with Phil Liggett a couple of weeks ago, I told him I wanted to speak with Bob and the stars aligned so that it became possible.
