Dave Rome takes Abby’s place leading the podcast on the ground in Adelaide to talk about the first stage of the women’s Tour Down Under, where Ally Wollaston (AG Insurance – Soudal) took a sprint victory. Our favourite tech expert is joined by former professional Gracie Elvin and Escape Collective’s managing editor Matt de Neef. 

The team discusses the event’s growing prestige, why the Europeans are showing up to win, how the Aussies can compete, and how the new team kits look in person. 

Of course, you can listen to all the Escape podcasts (Placeholders, Geek Warning, Wheel Talk, and Pretty Serious Bike Racing) over on the Escape Collective podcast network.
