March 12 | Join Lionel Birnie on the road between Paris and Nice for this week's episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast.

Lionel is covering the event known as The Race to the Sun – the second WorldTour stage race of the season – exclusively for the podcast.

In this episode, he covers the opening four days of the race and captures the flavour of the event out on the road.

We hear from Sir Bradley Wiggins, who is riding Paris-Nice for the last time in his career, and Sean Kelly, who won the race a record seven times, tells us his favourite memories. And there's a guest appearance by British Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch.

There's also a quick survey of the peloton to find out which race is best: Paris-Nice or Tirreno-Adriatico.
