In this second part of this week’s Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe speaks to Marco Pinotti, head of performance at Team CCC, and a resident of Bergamo, one of the cities in Italy that has been worst hit by coronavirus.

In the second part we hear from Jonathan Vaughters, boss of the EF Pro Cycling team, who were the first to pull out of the Strade Bianche race a couple of weeks ago, about what the future might hold for the sport once the crisis is over.
