A look ahead to 2018

Jan 24, 2018, 08:04 PM

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe recap the week in professional cycling and cast their eyes over the forthcoming season at what they are looking forward to from the 2018 season.

We discuss the Giro d’Italia wild cards, Richie Porte’s fifth successive victory on Willunga Hill, asking whether that’s proof that the Tasmanian is over the terrible crash that ended his Tour de France last season. We weigh up the importance of UCI president David Lappartient’s outspoken comments about Chris Froome and Lance Armstrong.

And Daniel ‘steals’ Richard’s thunder when it comes to what he’s looking forward to this season like a co-leader attacking his team-mate on the first mountain stage of the Tour de France.
