episode 204: Annus galaxicus: The Classics, part two

In the second part of our look back at the one-day races of 2021, we pick up the story by asking whether Peter Sagan can return to his best to challenge the current crop of Galácticos.

We hear from Jonathan Vaughters about the ways racing has changed and why a 'boring' race to watch does not mean an easy race to ride.

Toms Skujiņš of Trek-Segafredo tells us which of the current riders are most likely to win all five one-day Monuments in their career.

And we hear from Ineos Grenadiers rider Tom Pidcock, who was the breakthrough rider of the spring.
