This is the first ten minutes of an episode that's just been released for Friends of the Podcast called A Team Apart.
It's a study of a team that punched above its weight last season, Team Sunweb. They won three Tour de France stages, Flèche Wallonne, Paris-Tours and nearly the Giro d'Italia too. A new sponsor DSM has perhaps given the team greater security, considering Sunweb is in the fragile holiday market, although the team lost its new star, Marc Hirschi on the eve of the season. This episode gets under the skin of how the team often shuns the conventional approach.
