In the sixth and final episode of Adam Blythe Interviews, presented by The Cycling Podcast, Adam sits down with fellow Lotto-Soudal rider, Thomas De Gendt.
De Gendt finished 3rd in the General Classification at the 2012 Giro d’Italia and was once Belgium’s biggest hope for a Grand Tour winner. He has since established himself as a breakaway specialist, winning stages at all three Grand Tours and a handful of week-long stage races including Paris-Nice, Volta a Catalunya and the Tour de Romandie, where this episode was recorded following the time trial prologue.
He talks Blythe through his career to date, his unique riding style and what he has in store for 2019.
