August 11 | The first regular episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast since the Tour de France starts with an update of the events that have happened in the world of professional cycling in the past couple of weeks.

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe then discuss the Olympic Games road races. Both men's and women's races were marred by nasty crashes in the closing stages and we ask whether the course was too dangerous.

We also discuss the time trials and a third consecutive gold medal for America's Kristin Armstrong and a second for Fabian Cancellara, during his final season as a professional.

And there is Richard's in-depth report from the Tour of Utah, which uncovers the unique character of this race and looks at the state of professional cycling in the United States.

The Telegraph Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Eurosport.
