This week is full of Giro conspiracy theories. Like whats that guy doing with his fingers? Is that some sort of Italian sign for jumping in the middle of a sprint?
Its probably all just a coincidence that Tim picked all these guys for his Velogames giro team, or maybe its not?

Littleguy tries to ignore a certain Mr. Lance Armstrong away and Tim nerds out on the hour record. Will someone retire before this episode gets finished? Fatbike nationals happened, was the snow real?

The Doc Hollywood Invitational is a free ride based out of Micanopy, Florida. It is named after the greatest movie ever filmed in North Central Florida. The ride started when Tim decided to bring a little of the upper midwest free gravel community to the sunshine state. After a few recon rides with riders in the area the route was born. The ride is 78 miles long and features 7 sections of hard pack limerock.
This special report features interviews and recaps of the ride. We hope you enjoy this special report on the ride.

This week we were joined by @resultsboy himself, Colin Reuter. We grilled him about #treepeople, USAC Shenanigans, and of course this piece and this other piece that he wrote after the botched 2014-15 USA Cycling Cyclocross Nationals last week.
But that wasn’t all, we talked CX Worlds predictions, Dream analysis, and kind of a lot about FATBIKES.
SPOILER ALERT: He didn’t find any errors in this weeks episode! WUT?!
