Hosts Ed Pickering and Daniel Benson also discuss the merits and the draw backs surrounding eRacing, while we talk all things Alaphillipe with the Frenchman set to be the cover star on next month’s edition of Procycling magazine.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
