Tour de Yorkshire finale with Froome, Lawless and Van Avermaet

May 5, 2019

In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast brought to you in association with Sportful, Pinarello and Floyds of Leadville, Daniel Benson and Philippa York wrap up the final day’s action from the Tour de Yorkshire.

The stage finished in Leeds with Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) winning ahead of the Team Ineos duo of Chris Lawless and Eddie Dunbar. Lawless’ second place was enough for the British rider to win his first stage and race and take Team Ineos’ first win since their launch earlier in the week.

We hear from Lawless on his win, and Van Avermaet after the Olympic road champion took his second win of the season.

We catch up Chris Froome after the four-time Tour de France winner set up Dunbar and Lawless on the road to Leeds. Froome talks about his form, and Tour de Yorkshire but keeps his cards close to his chest of the Ineos line up for the Giro d’Italia.

Speaking of the Italian Grand Tour, Dunbar may be about to make his debut at a three week-race we interview him at the finish in Leeds, with Team Ineos set to announce the full Giro d’Italia line up in the next 24 hours.
