In this week’s podcast episode, we hear from Peter Sagan, Nicholas Roche and Tom Dumoulin, while we also have an exclusive interview with George Bennett from Jumbo Visma. 

We debate the merits of the Team Ineos Tour de France squad and the possible implications of leaving both Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas at home on the sofa. We analyse the depth within Jumbo-Visma, and ask whether Ineos are rattled by the Dutch team’s recent performances.

We hear from George Bennett on the strength at Jumbo-Visma and how the Kiwi is adamant that he will improve ahead of the Tour de France. 

Dumoulin and Roche talk to us about rider safety and the questions facing the CPA after a string of major crashes and incidents, while we also hear from Peter Sagan at the Critérium du Dauphiné.
