Podcast: Vuelta wrap, NRS schmozzle, loss of Goss  

La Vuelta is over. How good was it - or weren't you watching? Our National Road Series is in a sorry state. It continues to produce graduates worthy of a place in the WorldTour but that's not the point. Name a team or race promoter that is satisfied with the way things are being run and we'll show you pigs that can fly. He could've been one of the greats but Matthew Goss decided to call it quits last week, at the ripe old age of 29. What legacy does he leave behind?

Podcast: Vuelta a España - Quintana's to lose?  

The year's final Grand Tour is in the home straight. It would require a near-catastrophic set of circumstances for Nairo Quintana to lose - but then again, this Vuelta has been anything but typical.
