The diamond miners.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast’s Fuoripista series we ask what is talent and how do the World Tour teams identify and nurture it. We hear from Matxin Fernandez, who established a reputation as one of the keenest talent spotters by unearthing a generation of brilliant young riders for Quick Step before moving to UAE Team Emirates, and Rod Ellingworth, who moved British Cycling’s academy to Italy to help develop the riders’ skills and prepare them for life in the pro ranks.
