The Cycling Podcast returns to Bettys to discuss the penultimate day of the World Championships in Harrogate.

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau discuss the women’s road race, won with an astonishing 104-kilometre solo break by Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten, before recapping the controversial disqualification of another Dutch rider, Nils Eekhoff, for drafting a team car after a crash.

There’s also a look ahead to the next time the World Championships are to be held on British soil, in Scotland in 2023. Finally there’s another despatch from Irish rider Conor Dunne.

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