In the latest episode of The Cycling Podcast we hear from Tom Pidcock, the versatile young rider who explains his decision not to step up to a World Tour team in 2020.

Lionel Birnie, Daniel Friebe and Richard Moore also discuss Mark Cavendish’s move to Bahrain-Merida. Can he and Rod Ellingworth roll back the years and have the kind of success they enjoyed together at British Cycling and Team Sky?

We also discuss the politics of the UCI’s conflicts with the teams and even with the anti-doping body that they established.

The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
