This week we've got the podcast renamed (though, not yet with a fancy new podcast album cover). Plus, we take a look at the the new Road Grand Tours (now called RGT) Apple TV app and splintering of their app platform. We talk about our experiences with Magene's direct drive trainer, and dive into Ray's sports tech industry chat at a Barcelona business school. We chat about the upcoming Sea Otter show, as well as Garmin's Connect IQ Summit next week.
