We discuss how Stevie Williams’ thrilling overall victory represents a return from the brink for the Welsh rider – and one tinged with controversy. The other two breakout stars of the race were BORA-Hansgrohe sprinter Sam Welsford and UAE Team Emirates’ 20-year-old Mexican prodigy Isaac del Toro. We investigate Del Toro’s roots – and look at phenoms of yesteryear who did or didn’t deliver on their early promise.
There’s also the usual round-up of the week’s news and a look at what INEOS Grenadiers are plotting – and trying to change – in 2024.
