Millrose, Oregon T&F Greats, Evan Jager is BACK!

6 months ago

This week we talk about a wide variety of things. We analyze both some hot European indoor action as well as some great road race action from Japan before analyzing the return of Evan Jager and his BTC teammates. We then wonder who the greats of Oregon T&F are before previewing the upcoming NYRR Millrose Games and concluding with some more Vaporfly talk.

During our Vaporfly talk, we talk about some great articles which we loved and that you can find here: https://news.nike.com/news/nike-vaporfly-4-review, https://www.outsideonline.com/2408971/nike-vaporfly-controversy, https://www.irishtimes.com/sport/other-sports/fair-is-unfair-the-pros-and-cons-of-the-nike-vaporfly-rule-1.4158041, http://japanrunningnews.blogspot.com/2020/01/coming-down-from-hakone-this-year-race.html
