The next generation

Aug 16, 06:46 AM

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe recap the European Championships road race, won by Matteo Trentin.

We also hear from George Bennett of LottoNL-Jumbo about his fourth place in the Tour of Poland and his ambitions for the forthcoming Vuelta a Espana.

And, after a good week for young riders on the big stage, we look at the next generation. The Tour de l'Avenir starts on Friday and many of the World Tour teams will be keeping a close eye on the racing. We hear from Bahrain-Merida's manager Brent Copeland – who recently signed Welsh climber Stevie Williams after he finished fifth in the Baby Giro – about how the top teams look for the stars of tomorrow.
