September 27 | In this episode of The Cycling Podcast Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the World Championship road races in Bergen, Norway.

Peter Sagan became the first rider to win three consecutive road race rainbow jerseys but we ask why he has such success in the World Championships when he has only one other Monument to his name.

We tackle the other talking points from the race – including Gianni Moscon's disqualification for holding onto the Italian team car and the French team selection – and then turn attention to the UCI presidential election, which saw Brian Cookson beaten by David Lappartient.
