The Phonebox, the Ibex & Eight Bowls of Linguine

Season 11, Episode 19,   Mar 22, 2023, 10:00 PM

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, after our on-the-whistle analysis in Arrivée at the weekend, we revisit Milan-Sanremo in the company of Larry Warbasse of AG2r-Citroën, who was in the thick of the action right up until the moment of Mathieu van der Poel’s race-winning attack on the Poggio.

Larry takes Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie inside the peloton, dissecting and demystifying the wiles and vagaries of the first Monument of the season. We also hear the latest news from the Remco-Roglič battle in Catalonia - and look ahead to a weekend that signals the true start of the cobbled Classics season.  

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.
