episode 8: We have Vlasov!

In this week's episode we discuss last week's stage racing in Saudi Arabia, the south of France and southern Spain.

Dylan Groenewegen and Fabio Jakobsen each won two stages at their respective races, and, although these are very early days, we wonder if the two Dutchmen may emerge as the world's top sprinters this season. 

We hear from the young Norwegian Tobias Johannessen, who finished third at Étoile de Bessèges. He is an identical twin whose brother, Anders, also rides for Uno-X, the ambitious Norwegian team eyeing a wild card for the Tour de France.

And ahead of his season debut at the Tour of Oman, we speak to Mark Cavendish's coach, Vasilis Anastopoulos.
