48. Why Nathan Haas is racing gravel now

Nathan Haas has retired as a professional cyclist to take up a new life as a....professional cyclist.

Haas is the latest WorldTour rider to give up the hustle, bustle of the pro peloton for life on the open off-road, as he goes full-time gravel racer.

James and Joe talk to the Australian about why gravel, why now, where he thinks the gravel scene is going, whether UCI involvement is a good thing, leaving the WorldTour after a decade, and saying goodbye to French pasta forever.

Interview starts at 17.55.
