Season 11, Episode 16,   Mar 15, 09:08 PM

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by former Team CSC and Team Sky press chief and Leopard-Trek manager Brian Nygaard to review the two big WorldTour stage races that concluded at the weekend and look ahead to the first Monument of the 2023 season - Milan-Sanremo. 

After the usual weekly news round-up, we discuss the latest Pogcineration of Paris-Nice and the Roglication of Tirreno-Adriatico. What do these two results mean for the Grand Tour season and, in particular, Jonas Vingegaard’s chances of retaining his Tour de France crown?

In the final part of the episode, we also look ahead to Milan-Sanremo, by many estimates the most boring Monument of the season and by Daniel’s the best.
