The Cycling Podcast / A Diamond Thief in the Hornets’ Nest

The Cycling Podcast / A Diamond Thief in the Hornets’ Nest

In this week’s regular episode, Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and Rob Hatch of GCN and Eurosport commentary fame reflect on two thrilling days of racing at Opening Weekend in Belgium. 

On Saturday, a dominant Jumbo-Visma performance culminated in victory in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad for a rider whose winning moves typically display all the stealth, cunning and deftness of a gemstone heist. This was followed on Sunday by another Jumbo masterclass and success for one of the team’s less prolific yet most versatile stars. 

As usual, there’s also a full round-up of the week’s news and we also look ahead to Strade Bianche next weekend.
