Welcome to the VeloNews cycling podcast, where we discuss the latest trends, news, and controversies in the world of cycling.

This Sunday we’ll see one of the weirdest spectacles in pro cycling: GC guys and skinny climbers trying to survive the Paris-Roubaix cobblestones. Does stage 9 make sense to include in a race like the Tour de France? We discuss.

Plus, we hear from Dan Martin on his stage 8 win, talk to a few sport directors about the cobblestone chaos that is sure to ensue this weekend, and more.
