October 25 | The Cycling Podcast this week comes from the Tour of Guangxi in China, the last World Tour race of the 2017 season. Fran Reyes, who listeners will remember from our Vuelta a España coverage, was there for all six stages and brings us a report from a race that was difficult to follow from afar, but which seems to have been a hit with the riders.

We hear from Mikel Landa, in his last race for Team Sky, and his teammate Beñat Intxausti, making a rare appearance after two years of struggling with illness. There are also interviews with the overall winner, Tim Wellens of Lotto-Soudal, and with Fernando Gaviria, the Quick-Step sprinter who won four stages.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.
