In this week’s episode of the Cyclingnews podcast we focus on the 12-rider long-list Team Ineos have built for the Tour de France

We run through the riders included, focus on their main GC challenge and ponder where this leaves Egan Bernal after it was confirmed that the Colombian would aim for the Giro d’Italia.

We chart the progress of Geraint Thomas – hear from him twice at the Etoile de Besseges and ask whether age will finally catch-up with him or if he can discover his 2018 Tour winning form and claim a second win in the race at the age of 35.

There’s a discussion over whether any team can win all three Grand Tours in one season, and we discuss some of the latest action from  Etoile de Besseges as the European season kicks up another gear.
