episode 12: Fly me to the moon

This episode of The Cycling Podcast starts with the most significant corrections corner ever following Daniel's assertion last week that Ineos Grenadiers rider Pavel Sivakov had climbed the equivalent of the distance to the moon...

We also discuss the early races of the season, the big stories in the news and look ahead to Chris Froome's debut for his new team, Israel Start-Up Nation. Can he win a fifth Tour de France after his long recovery from injury? Or will age and the emergence of so many other grand tour contenders count against him.

We also hear from Doug Ryder, the boss of the Qhubeka-Assos team which nearly collapsed at the end of last year. Having saved the team from extinction he was celebrating at the weekend as Giacomo Nizzolo got their first victory of the season at the Clasica Almeria.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca and Science in Sport.

This episode is also supported by Harrys.
