    No guest this month, so Neil and Matt waffle on about the latest races big and small, before discussing the pros and cons of mountain biking in the Netherlands.

    014 - The new racing normal (Originally aired October 2020)

    1:21:17

    It's vacation-racing time for us here at ATAC the pod, so, we're skipping a month of recording - and we thought it would be good to throwback to one of our most popular episodes, originally published in October 2020. Also good to see how the world of triathlon has (or has not) changed since then! In this episode (Originally published Oct 2020), we speak to a few members who’ve raced in the past few months and discuss how their races went, as well as what it’s like to race in these COVID times. We also dive into Matt’s genius-like predictions for the Tour de France, discuss the major cycling events taking place over the next few months, and get to know ATAC’s communications director, Anna Larentis (who 'gatecrashes' the show).
