episode 2: Pogačar and the perfect carbonara

In our first regular episode of 2022 we anticipate the Grand Tours and ask whether it will be the third year of Pog – Tadej Pogačar.

Daniel Friebe has spoken to Pogačar's coach, Iñigo San Millán, who describes him (Pogačar, not Daniel) as "the perfect athlete." We also hear from Pogačar himself. 

And we hear from Egan Bernal, who Richard spoke to in between training rides in Colombia (Bernal, not Richard). Bernal tells us that while the Tour de France is his main focus he would like to ride Liège-Basgogne-Liège and Flèche Wallonne as well.

Rolf Aldag, meanwhile, tells us about Bora-Hansgrohe's ambitions as they transition into a team with a focus on general classification in stage races.
