In the latest episode of the podcast, Daniel Benson, Sadhbh O’Shea, and Patrick Fletcher are joined by Procycling editor Ed Pickering to discuss the racism row that flared up after Team Sky rider Gianni Moscon verbally abused FDJ’s Kevin Reza at the recent Tour de Romandie.
Was Sky’s handling of the incident satisfactory? What action should be taken by the UCI? These are some of the issues under discussion before conversation turns to the questionable form of Chris Froome and the team’s picks for the Giro title.
The Cyclingnews team has also recently linked up with the guys at ‘Recon Ride’ to produce preview podcasts for every major race on the road calendar. With Dane Cash and Cosmo Catalano analysing the routes and assessing the contenders, it’s your essential pre-race preparation. The Giro d’Italia edition can be found here.
The original Cyclingnews podcast will continue with regular episodes throughout the Giro d’Italia, featuring interviews with all the major protagonists out in Italy and close analysis of the racing and the storylines. The podcast will not stop in Milan, with plenty of action to discuss and dissect in June and some special plans in the works for the Tour de France.
