Vos victorious in Yorkshire, Bernal out of the Giro

May 4, 2019

In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you in association with Sportful, Pinarello and Flyods of Leadville, we hear from Marianne Vos after her incredible win at the Tour de Yorkshire. We also hear from Lizzie Diegnan on her return to racing, and Philippa York and author William Fotheringhan talk about the Harrogate Worlds course.

Fotheringham was out on Friday riding the course and likened it to the Oslo course from 1993. He and York talk a walk down memory lane and discuss both the Norwegian course and Harrogate’s 2019 parcours.

We then jump to the men’s Tour of Yorkshire and debate the stage that saw Alexander Kamp defy the odds but take home a well-deserved win ahead of Chris Lawless and Team Ineos.  There’s a segment looking ahead to Sunday’s final stage with York providing her ever-excellent analysis.

And of course we talk about the news that Egan Bernal has broken a collarbone and will miss the Giro d’Italia. Where does this leave Team Ineos on the eve of their Grand Tour debut.
