In this episode, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe react to Egan Bernal's terrible crash while training in Colombia which left Ineos Grenadiers' reigning Giro d'Italia champion needing surgery on his back and right leg.
Then we turn our attention back to previewing the 2022 season looking at the men's one-day Classics and asking who will challenge Wout van Aert while Mathieu van der Poel regains full fitness, how Ineos Grenadiers will deploy Tom Pidcock to greatest effect and where Remco Evenepoel fits into Quick Step's Classics line-up. We also hear from Bora-Hansgrohe's sports director Rolf Aldag about Milan-Sanremo.
Finally, there's more from Richard on the early season form of Scotland's Mark Stewart.
