In the final episode of Season 4, Neil, Matt and Bruce review the final DVV and Superprestige races of the season, seeing a key win from Van Aert, and evidence that 'sprinters win on confidence' even in CX, with Alvarado continuing her outstanding record along the finishing straight in 2020.

They review the issue of Manon Bakker being fired from Experza after racing on non-sponsor wheels. They also discuss the classic camera shots and whether it is not necessary for race organisers to have a cablecam and a JCB... and explain why Lars van der Haar is a mental arithmetic whizz.

In the Laatste Ronde they look forward to next season's National Trophy and discuss the implications of it being just 5 rounds, the loss of HSBC sponsorship, and how World Cup clashes will affect riders. They also have the latest on the new rounds, diving into the pits with Mark Deakin, the organiser of the Taunton race that few outside of the South West will have raced.
