The Aural Velvet Trio, otherwise known as Al Hinds, Phil Gomes and Anthony Tan, are the movers and shakers in this week's Cycling Central podcast.
Before scooting off to the boot himself for a well-earned vacanza in Italia, young Al takes to the chair alongside sage counterparts Gomesy and Tanny, engorging themselves with the issues of the week.
They begin by waxing lyrical over Dan McConnell and Bec Henderson's mountain bike World Cup wins last weekend, breaking a drought that has lasted more than a decade and accomplished on the smell of one of Mike Tomalaris' soiled handkerchiefs.
Talk then centres around the 96th Giro d'Italia. Yes, that's this year!
With more course changes afoot due to inclement weather, the final mountain time trial takes on even greater importance - will it set this year's Giro podium in stone and therefore make a Vincenzo Nibali victory lap in Brescia a fait accompli? Or will Cadel Evans and Rigoberto Urán flush caution down the toilet and mount a masterful eleventh hour offensive?
There's also wrap from the Amgen Tour of California, which saw Evans' protege Tejay van Garderen put not a foot wrong en route to overall victory in The Golden State. It thus creates an enviable conundrum for the BMC Racing Team: who will lead them in July?
Along with a few pithy remarks about Jens Voigt, Denis Menchov and Levi Leipheimer, it's available right here, right now, on the Cycling Central podcast.
