Sprinting in the desert

Feb 08, 2018, 09:15 PM

February 8 | In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Orla Chennaoui discuss the opening days of the Dubai Tour, where the sprinters have been sharing the stage wins among themselves.

Daniel Friebe is in Dubai and he sends a despatch from the race featuring an interview with Norway's Alexander Kristoff who has swapped the Katusha team for the UAE Team Emirates this season.

We also discuss the charms of cyclo-cross and wonder what will happen at the Ruta del Sol next week when Chris Froome makes his first race appearance of the season.
