The Amstel Close Race

Apr 19, 07:27 PM
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the photo finish to the Amstel Gold Race.

After losing Brabantse Pijl to the young British rider in a close sprint, Wout van Aert turned the tables on Tom Pidcock by an even closer margin in the finishing straight named after 2019 winner Mathieu van der Poel.

Lionel tries to explain how the photo finish camera actually works, Daniel debuts Grievance Grotto and we look ahead to Wednesday's Flèche Wallonne. Will the race end in a sprint on the Mur de Huy or are we in for a surprise?
