Episode notes

Sir Bradley Wiggins is joined by Orla Chennaoui and Graham Willgoss to get right up to speed with the Vuelta a España after Brad's time away at the Tour de France and Tokyo.


Brad's backing an unrecognisably relaxed Primoz Roglic to make it three Vuelta victories in a row, and says his Jumbo-Visma team "might as well be in the jersey, because they're riding like they have it". 


Rogla seems happy to attack the last week, says Brad, but must now show his hand in the mountains to take the lead back from Odd Christian Eiking. 


Orla, meanwhile, is enjoying the new Jumbo leader's new laidback style: "He's perceptively giggled twice [in interviews], and it's an odd thing to listen to, because he's usually so monosyllabic!" 


In another Grand Tour that is not going Ineos's way, there's a warning from Brad not to write off Egan Bernal too quickly. Praise, too, for the calm head on young Tom Pidcock's shoulders after his Olympic gold and his focus on the road ahead. 


Plus, the trio pick over Fabio Jakobsen's extraordinary reaction to being dropped by his Deceuninck–Quick-Step sprint train.
