In this month’s TCP Féminin we consider the rise of Movistar, the women’s team that has slowly established itself as a formidable force and, as of the beginning of March, the best in the world.

episode 16: Rogačar

In the first of two episodes this week, Richard, Lionel and Daniel look back at Paris-Nice and Tirreno Adriatico, the stage races in France and Italy respectively won by the Slovenian superstars, Primož Roglič and Tadej Pogačar.
Roglič’s performance in the ‘Race to the Sun’ ended up throwing up as many questions as answers, though in the end he did win – and that, as Lionel points out, is the crucial fact...
