Episode 117: TDDTIE | New UCI CX Rules

It's August, which means it's officially “cross is coming” season. To kick things off the They Don't Do That in Europe crew get together for a surprisingly entertaining conversation about rule changes. From the banning of podium bikes to the definition of artificial obstacle, this one covers it all.
