Cyclingnews podcast: Episode 11

Taking the Giro by the horns

In episode 11 of the Cyclingnews podcast, we take the Giro d'Italia by the horns

The Giro d’Italia is go, and already there’s been lots to talk about in the first week. We give it our best shot in the Cyclingnews weekly podcast episode 11. Get it now while stocks last.


This week, Cyclingnews‘ Daniel Benson and BikeRadar’s Jeff Jones show no mercy as they dissect the winners and losers in the first four stages. From Mark Cavendish’s dig at ‘disrespectful’ Garmin, to his failure to beat Alessandro Petacchi, to Danilo Di Luca continuing the amazing success of Team LPR, to the enigma that is Tom Danielson. Outside Italy, we also cover Tom Boonen’s latest flirtation with Bolivian marching powder, Alejandro Valverde’s Italian ban and what lies ahead for Team Astana.
