We take a look back at a busy week of racing – including the cyclocross World Championships – and some of the biggest stories of the last week, including heartening news about the Tour of Britain. It’s then time to focus on some of the big talking points and performances at the AlUla Tour, Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and Étoile de Bessèges – including an excellent week for Brian’s countryman, the Lidl-Trek star Mads Pedersen.
In the final part of the podcast, we discuss the upcoming 20th anniversary of Marco Pantani’s death and – with the help of a couple of Italian friends – arrive at the conclusion that ‘il Pirata’s’ life and legacy still deserve to be revisited.
