This episode was just getting polished up as both Michael Woods and Riley Pickrell were involved in crashes in Stage 5 of the Giro d’Italia. Before the start of Stage 6, Woods presented symptoms of a mild concussion. The team made the decision that he should leave the race, head home and recover fully. Even though Pickrell was feeling well, he, too, didn’t start Stage 6 in case of concussion. While the interviews in this episode were recorded at the start of the Giro, they will still give you insights into the riders we all care about, including what might be ahead for Woods this year as his career is winding down.

So, go behind the scenes of the Giro d’Italia with Michael Woods, Riley Pickrell and others at Israel-Premier Tech. Also, take a ride in the Israel-Premier Tech team car. Directeur sportif Oscar Guerrero offers support to Pickrell on his first Giro stage and shares his knowledge about riders and Grand Tour racing.

This episode of the Canadian Cycling Magazine Podcast is supported by Yoeleo Canada. Did you know that the brand, which is based in China, has an office in Montreal? That’s where you’ll find support for all of Yoeleo’s carbon products including bike frames, handlebars and wheels.

Just this past April, the company launched its Pro Next wheelset. Yoeleo says these new hoops are lighter, wider and faster than last year’s model. The Pro Next wheels with a rim depth of 35 mm tip the scale at about 1,250 g. They’re optimized for tires—clincher or tubeless—ranging from 28c to 32c but you can go bigger if you want to take on some gravel riding with them.

The wheels cost $1,339. To get a little more aero, there are rim depths of 45 and 50 mm that cost a little bit more. If you head to with the code UPGRADE2024 you can get 20 per cent off a pair of these latest Pro Next wheels.
