episode 6: Remco off to a flyer

Is Miguel Angel Lopez's crown as cycling's Superman under threat? Who's already looking al dente just a week into the season? Does the new Cofidis jersey look as good on the bike as off it? And just what should we make of the Astana rap?

All these questions and more are covered in a bumper episode. With the road racing season well underway in Europe and the Middle East Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss what we've seen so far.

The season was almost a week old and Quick Step were still waiting for their first win of the season until Remco Evenepoel took flight on stage one of the Vuelta Valenciana. We hear from Evenepoel about his thwarted attempts to check out the gravel finish to Friday's third stage in Spain.

We also recap the rest of the racing, including Tom Pidcock's win in the cyclo-cross World Championships, and on the road at the Challenge Majorca, Grand Prix La Marseillaise and Saudi Tour.

UAE Team Emirates head coach Iñigo San Millan tells us about ketones and, at the end of the show, Lionel looks at the history of cycling's world rankings and delves into the prospect of promotion and relegation in the World Tour.
