The transfer market

Season 8, Episode 198,  Dec 03, 2020, 03:33 PM

In this week's episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe talk about cycling's transfer market and the eleventh hour rescue of World Tour team NTT, which will race in 2021 as Qhubeka Assos.

As well as discussing the eclectic roster being put together by the African team, we hear from rider agent Gary McQuaid, who looks after Bob Jungels, Adam Yates, Jai Hindley and others, and from one rider who's been left high and dry, James Shaw.

Shaw spent two years with Lotto-Soudal and has been trying to get back into the World Tour but is finding it tough. Still just 24, he feels he has a lot to offer and hopes to continue his professional career, but he also has a mortgage to pay and dogs to feed and worries that he is running out of time.
