Cyclingnews weekly podcast: Episode 7

Paris-Roubaix run-down and Lance Armstrong's suspicions

Tom Boonen's victory in Paris-Roubaix is the highlight of this week's Cyclingnews podcast

Somehow, we’ve made it to week seven without being cancelled. Does this mean the Cyclingnews weekly podcast is, as they say, here to stay?


Just in case it isn’t, make sure you pick up a rare unsigned copy of Episode 7 for your listening pleasure.

This week’s audio feast is nearly 25 minutes long and contains no naughty words. Instead, Cyclingnews’ Daniel Benson and BikeRadar’s Jeff Jones talk about the biggest and baddest one day race of them all, Paris-Roubaix. Who won, who fell off, who won and fell off, who got spat on, who punctured and failed, and most importantly, where was Heinrich Haussler.

We also discuss the upcoming classics, Amstel Gold Race, Fleche Wallonne and Liege-Bastogne-Liege, and Lance Armstrong’s run-in with the French anti-doping agency, which could result in him not racing the Tour de France. Did he have good reason to be suspicious? We have our own theory on that one.
