Oct 27, 2016, 09:59 AM

October 27 | This episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast comes from the track centre at the London velodrome on the opening night of the London Six-Day.

It is Bradley Wiggins's first race since the Fancy Bears hackers leaked details of therapeutic use exemptions that permitted him to use a corticosteroid before major road races in his career. He teamed up with Mark Cavendish, his Madison world championship partner and despite the recent controversy the crowd's reaction proved the fans were still behind Wiggins.

In this episode, Richard talks to London Six-Day organiser Mark Darbon about the new series of track races taking place this winter and culminating with a one-night finale in Palma, Majorca.

Richard also talked to Australian rider Cameron Meyer. The former Madison, points race and team pursuit world champion retired from cycling in June but has decided to make a comeback.

And Lionel calls Daniel Friebe to get his verdict on the route for the 100th edition of the Giro d'Italia.
