The Cycling Podcast / The XL Giro Preview

The Cycling Podcast / The XL Giro Preview

The Giro d’Italia starts here! We begin Girovagando 2024 – our comprehensive coverage of the first Grand Tour of the 2024 season – with our now time-honoured XL preview, ahead of Saturday’s Grande Partenza in Turin. 

Daniel Friebe is joined by Brian Nygaard and Rob Hatch for a thorough examination of riders, race route and the big questions ahead of an edition that Tadej Pogačar is widely expected to win. The episode features exclusive interviews with two men who have seen first-hand just how thoroughly Pogačar has prepared for his first appearance in ‘La Corsa Rosa’ – Team UAE Emirates’ Performance Coordinator Jeroen Swart and climbing lieutenant Rafał Majka.

We also discuss cultural highlights on the route, what to look forward to from our podcasts in the next month – and one terrifying threat that will loom over the whole race when we get to Naples.
