Britain's Tao Geoghegan Hart has come of age at Giro | Vuelta preview with Sean Kelly
32 min

Brad is joined by Graham Willgoss to break down a quite stunning performance from his protégé, Britain’s Tao Geoghegan Hart, as he produced the biggest ride of his career so far to win Stage 15 of the Giro d’Italia on Sunday and announce himself as a serious contender.


Brad believes the 25-year-old has come of age at this Grand Tour and lauds the Brit's attitude and talent. He also makes it clear that he thinks his former team-mate Geraint Thomas would have triumphed in Italy had it not been for his unfortunate injury.


Meanwhile, Brad and Graham give their reactions after two of the biggest talents in cycling duked it out for Tour of Flanders glory on Sunday as Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin Fenix) beat rival Wout van Aert (Jumbo Visma) in an amazing finish.


Finally, the great Sean Kelly joins the guys to help preview the Vuelta a España. They give their predictions and wonder how the sport will cope with having two Grand Tours on at the same time. Does Chris Froome have a chance to triumph?

196: Peiper on Pogacar: It was the pinnacle of my life
Allan Peiper was in the UAE Team Emirates car behind Tadej Pogacar during the dramatic time trial on La Planche des Belles Filles. The 60-year-old Australian describes the young Slovenian's victory over this compatriot Primoz Roglic as the pinnacle of his life and in this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel talks to him about this year's Tour de France. It was a particularly poignant race for Peiper, who was diagnosed with cancer last year and was unsure whether he'd be able to work at the Tour de France. In this conversation, he talks about how he helped manage Pogacar through his sensational debut Tour, how management techniques have changed since his own racing days and what winning the yellow jersey meant to him.

PYSO, ep. 80: Fabian Cancellara on a champion's mentality and the work that goes into it
In this episode of Put Your Socks On, the legendary Fabian Cancellara weighs on on the socks. "Socks — they need to be short," says the four-time world time trial champion. "Rapha always comes up and says the socks need to be high. No! That look is not stylish. That look it's just a no-go. So I want to have my socks short. And then it's stylish." The two-time Olympic time trial champion also points out that high socks are now aero equipment. "They think socks can give an advantage of one to five watts," he says. "There is a lot of discussion, but you know what is good? I'm out of the game. I just don't want the tan lines for when I am at the beach." Cancellara chats with Bobby Julich and Gus Morton about his long and storied career, which included three wins at both Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. The Swiss racer also holds the record for most days in the Tour de France yellow jersey — 29 — for a rider who never won the overall. Cancellara wrapped up his career in high style right after the 2016 Olympic Games — "a better ending of a career was not possible" - but he says that his Flanders win in 2013 sticks out as a career highlight because of how hard he had to fight back after a challenging 2012. hard 2012. "2006 to ’16, I had a lot of success, but also a lot of hard times," he says, from crashes to cheating allegations. "I mean, in three weeks I gained 10 kilos. Ten days after the Olympics, I went from hero to zero. I had to learn to grow a thick skin." "To be in the spotlight, it's not easy. But if you want to win bike races, it's part of the game that when the spotlight comes you need to adapt to it and you need to be able to handle it," he says. "I worked with a life coach. I didn't only work on cycling skills, I worked on my own to have this responsibility in my daily life."
