Rouleur Conversations podcast: Amanda Spratt and latest WorldTour bikes
Staying in Europe this winter means Amanda Spratt will be unable to defend her green and gold Australian national champion's stripes, but she's got plenty of other targets in her sights.
As former world champion Annemiek van Vleuten moves on to pastures new at Movistar, Spratt steps up to more of a leader's role at the newly-named Team Bike Exchange. What next for the born winner? And will it include a karaoke version of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun?And talking of Bike Exchange, our very own tech-head Peter Stuart keeps tabs on the merry-go-round of manufacturers swapping teams during transfer season, with the Aussie's now switching to Bianchi, AG2R to BMC, ISN to Factor, Jumbo-Visma to Cervelo... It's a veritable minefield. Pay attention. Pete talks like he rides - fast.
