    Another week, another pod from Cycling Central HQ.

    An awesome foursome fronts the panel in this week’s packed podcast, hosted by Cycling Central’s inner-city-hipster-Gen-Y-connection, Alexander Hinds, and supported by his less youthful but equally exuberant counterparts in Phil Gomes, Stuart Randall and Anthony Tan.

    Christopher Froome, fresh off his biggest career win at the Tour de Romandie, reaffirms he is the undisputed leader at the Tour de France. Meanwhile, his teammate and reigning Tour champion, Bradley Wiggins, says otherwise – that either Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford will decide just before the Grand Départ, or a “natural hierarchy” will be created on the road.

    It’s all a bit confusing, really. So we discuss the topic to confuse you further still.

    The same day Froome was crowned overall winner in Switzerland, hitherto unknown Mustafa Sayar becomes champion of the Tour of Turkey – but not without severe criticism by all and sundry, after his “unbelievable” ride two days previous.

    Clean winner or dirty as a rat?

    Operation Puerto also drew to a close this week – another event with a multitude of question marks hanging over it, when the presiding judge at the Criminal Court in Madrid ordered the 200 seized blood bags to be destroyed, rather than handed over for analysis by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

    How can faith in cycling be restored when Spanish administrators egregiously continue to cover up their own mess?

    Finally, with the National Road Series moving to the Battle of the Border in northern New South Wales, the quartet muse over the term “return on investment” when it comes to sponsoring domestic cycling teams, and what it actually means.
