December 1 | In this episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe are joined by Cannondale-Drapac CEO Jonathan Vaughters and French journalist François Thomazeau.

We spoke to Vaughters about Cannondale-Drapac's season, their new signings and plans for 2017. Despite not winning a World Tour race in 2016, Vaughters explained that he was pleased with the team's progress and noted that they had their highest ever finish in the rankings.

We also discussed the announcement by ASO, RCS and Flanders Classics, the organisers of all the biggest races in the world, that team sizes would be reduced by one rider for next season's events.
