173: Ellingworth takes the wheel at McLaren

The Cycling Podcast

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe review some of the biggest stories from the past week in professional cycling. After 14 years, the Tour of California – the biggest stage race in the USA – is taking a hiatus. What does this mean for racing in America – and does Peter Stetina's decision to quit the World Tour in favour of gravel events such as Dirty Kanza suggest the sport is heading in a different direction? Richard reports back on his trip to McLaren HQ in Woking, where he met Bahrain-Merida's new boss Rod Ellingworth and asks him about signing Mark Cavendish and reluctantly seeing world time trial champion Rohan Dennis leave. We also discuss Filippo Ganna's world record-breaking four-kilometre individual pursuit ride in Minsk. And as the medical hearing into the conduct of Dr Richard Freeman – former doctor for both Team Sky and British Cycling resumes – we discuss the implications of Dr Freeman's admission that he'd lied about the delivery of testosterone to British Cycling HQ.
