In the latest Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello, we talk about the precarious situation at the Giro d'Italia after a number of positive COVID-19 tests have led to two teams withdrawing and one additional team's management requesting that the race comes to an early end.

We discuss if the Giro will make it to Milan, and how the organisers are vowing to carry on.

We also hear from Mark Cavendish, who spoke to the media in Belgium this week, and we look at the potential teams that he could join in 2021.

With the men's and women's Tour of Flanders coming up on Sunday, we look at the favourites, and we talk to Elisa Longo Borghini about her season, the Classics and Trek-Segafredo.

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.
