In this episode of The Cycling Podcast Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are joined in Betty's tearooms by François Thomazeau to discuss the men’s elite time trial.
The gold medal and rainbow jersey was won for the second year in a row by Australia’s Rohan Dennis, who pulled out of the Tour de France midway through, reportedly because he was dissatisfied with his team’s equipment and kit. We discuss what this means for Dennis and also weigh up the significance of Remco Evenepoel’s silver medal. A year ago he was a junior world champion, now he’s a runner-up at elite level.
Plus, hear from Great Britain’s Alex Dowsett and learn about the UCI’s junior conference, where the stars of tomorrow learn about the future career that awaits them.
