The Cycling Podcast returns after the Christmas and New Year break with our first episode of 2020.
Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe as they each pick three things they're looking forward to in professional cycling in the coming year. From new teams to riders facing new challenges, big-name transfers and leadership dynamics, new places to visit and, yes, the prospect of goulash.
We discuss the likely fortunes of Bahrain-McLaren, Israel Start-Up Nation, Sam Bennett at Deceuninck-Quick Step, the Hungarian Grande Partenza and much more.
As for Nice-Paris, well, everything will be explained...
