Tune in for the events going on this weekend in SoCal, including the first race in the inaugural So-Cal FIXED Series!
Chris brings up a recent news piece, published online by peloton magazine written by John Wilcockson, detailing the not-often-discussed tension between UCI and ASO. As it stands, UCI has pulled the Tour de France from UCI sanctioning as a result of ongoing conflicts between the organizations and professional cyclists. This inspires a conversation about the personalities of the professionals.

Speaking of KPCC, Victor references an article recently published on KPCC.com about the recent closure of Mariposa Street Bridge to cyclists. As of right now, Burbank city council has made this bridge available only to horses and equestrians.
Finally we finish with a discussion about Victor’s article in #129, “How Fast Can You Take Your Time, Kid?“. We talk about the history behind the Gus Van Sant short film “The Discipline of Do Easy“, and Victor’s inspiration for writing the article and how it translates to cycling.
