S8 Ep90: Wout and the art of winning

The Cycling Podcast

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss a week packed with racing as the Classics riders tackled the first, and longest, Monument of the season while the stage racers continued their build-up to the Tour de France. In part one: We review Milan-Sanremo and Wout Van Aert's incredible Italian double. Last week he won Strade Bianche, this week the Jumbo-Visma man took La Classicissima, outsprinting defending champion Julian Alaphilippe, who had launched a searing attack on the Poggio. But what did we make of the new route, and will it be only temporary? It seemeed to shed most of the sprinters but set up the thrilling finale – will the organisers be tempted to mix up the course in future years as a result? In part two: We discuss the French stage races, particularly the Tour de l'Ain, which Daniel described as being like open mic night at the local pub turning into Live Aid. We witnessed a showdown betweeen Jumbo-Visma and Team Ineos. Does this hint at what we should expect when the Tour de France starts at the end of the month? We also hear from Team Ineos sports director Gabriel Rasch about how things are shaping up for the Tour. In part three: We turn our attention to the Tour of Poland, which started with a terrible crash in the finishing straight that caused serious injury to Dutch champion Fabio Jakobsen. Sprinting has always carried an element of danger and cannot be made entirely safe but what can be done to minimize the risks to riders? And what of Remco Evenepoel, the overall winner, who continued his 100 per cent record in stage races this year? The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca and Science in Sport. My first Tour de France Our four-part series, My First Tour, is available for Friends of the Podcast. Sign up on our website. In the series, Richard, Lionel, Daniel and François take turns to recall their first Tours – whether it be the first they saw on television or from the roadside, the first they covered or, in Lionel's case, the first they covered in a camper van. Also, with the peloton set to return to the Giant of Provence this week, we've made the 2016 Friends Special about Mont Ventoux – Heat, Wind and Fear – available for current Friends of the Podcast.
