In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe review the final Classic of the spring and another win for the dominant Quick Step team courtesy of Luxembourg champion Bob Jungels. We also weigh up the winners and loser at Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

The BMC Racing team lost their biggest supporter, Andy Rihs, who died last week aged 75 and we assess the Swiss businessman’s impact on professional cycling during a near two-decade association with the teams. We also hear from BMC’s sports director Max Sciandri about what Rihs meant to the team.

There’s also a brief look ahead of the Giro d’Italia with Mitchelton-Scott rider Esteban Chaves before our preview of the first grand tour of the season next week.
