episode 64: Service Course | Lunsar to Arkansas

This episode of Service Course comes from two far flung destinations. Firstly Lizzy takes you to Arkansas where she was competing in the Joe Martin Stage Race and then Tom, with the help of Oskar Scarsbrook takes you to Sierra Leone. More specifically the Lunsar region of Sierra Leone where the Tour de Lunsar was taking place. The most important race in the region, the Tour de Lunsar is not on the UCI’s calendar but it is supported by our sponsors Science In Sport. You’ll hear an incredible atmosphere from a race like no other as well as from the riders taking part, and you’ll find out how donations of kit from the European peloton play a key role in making the race possible.
