Van der Poel has lift off
First, Lionel Birnie, Daniel Friebe and Richard Moore discuss Strade Bianche, a race that grows in prestige, and in fans' affections, each year. Was this edition the best yet?
And from Paris-Nice, Richard and François Thomazeau convene over a beer in Gien to review the stage three time trial and to look ahead to the rest of the race. There are interviews with stage winner Stefan Bissegger, race favourite Primoz Roglic and lead-out man par excellence, Michael Morkov.
Our slow radio segment comes from the white roads of Tuscany, thanks to Lizzy Banks.
