With an understandable lack of racing to discuss, Kathi, Luke and Euan gather virtually and chat about a wide range of cycling subjects.
We discuss which cyclist we’d want to be in quarantine with, some of our all-time cycling favourites and those days of racing which are just burned into our memories.
Regular listeners will be delighted to hear that, despite no racing we’ve still got space to discuss things like Richie Porte’s Grand Tour career, Thibaut Pinot winning things and Philippe Gilbert’s all-round awesomeness.
Once you have a listen you might want to watch some of the races we remember. I mean, most of us have a bit more time on our hands right now don’t we?
For many cycling fans, the red letter day of the season is Omloop Day. It has cobbles, it has bergs, it has the Kapelmuur – and it kicks off the Classics season. With worries around how much of the cycling season will actually get raced (Italian races in jeopardy, even the Tour de France coming into question due to the corona virus), it felt like we needed to drink in as much of the action as possible. And we got two fantastic wins. Both using the Kapelmuur well, it was a solo win for the world champion, Annamiek Van Vleuten (Mitchelton Scott), in the women’s edition and Trek-Segafredo’s Jasper Stuyven had enough in his legs to stay in front of Deceuninck-QuickStep’s Yves Lampaert to take the biggest win of his career in the men’s race.
