Listen on

Episode notes

The action is coming thick and fast in the 2021 season now, and Brad and Graham caught up after the first Monument of the year, which saw Jasper Stuyven spring a surprise on the Poggio to win Milan-San Remo ahead of an all-star cast.

Wout van Aert, Mathieu van der Poel and Julian Alaphilippe were all outfoxed right at the end of an epic 299km ride on Saturday, but Brad praises the Big Three for how "they have advanced the sport".

There's also praise for Ineos, who placed Tom Pidcock in 15th and were, to quote Brad, "bloody brilliant... the team of the day."

After a glorious wander down memory lane - including details of the day Mario Cipollini gave Bernie Eisel a clip round the ear, and Brad's first encounter with Lance Armstrong at Milan-San Remo - in part two we look ahead to this week's Volta a Catalunya.

Ineos are bringing a formidable team with G, Adam Yates and Richard Carapaz all in attendance. But who will fancy themselves as team leader? And are Jumbo-Visma spreading themselves too thin as the inevitable Tour de France showdown looms with Dave Brailsford's boys?
