    Valgren interview and report cards for NTT and EF Pro Cycling

    Valgren interview and report cards for NTT and EF Pro Cycling

    In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello, we speak to Michael Valgren about his 2020 season, his time at NTT Pro Cycling and his move to EF Pro Cycling ahead of next year’s campaign.
     


    The Danish rider spent two years on the African team and never quite managed to replicate the 2018 form that saw him win Amstel Gold Race but he talks about his motivation, why things didn’t work out and how he will fit into EF Pro Cycling’s roster.


    As well as hearing from Valgren, we also start our yearly report card analysis of the WorldTour teams and as Valgren features – and because there’s no real method – we start by taking a look at both NTT and EF.
     


    NTT actually started the season incredibly well. They came into 2020 with arguably one of the weakest rosters of the WorldTour teams but they won six races by the time Paris-Nice concluded. They dominated a number of online races during lockdown but once racing resumed they struggled. Giacomo Nizzolo won the European Championships and Ben O’Connor took a fine stage in the Giro d’Italia but there was very little for them to celebrate.
     


    They ended the year with eight wins but the season was really dominated by sponsorship issues and once more the underperformance of several key riders. Sponsorship issues created uncertainty and tension between the management before Assos stepped in to help the team going forward. We analyze the season for NTT, before Procycling’s editor Edward Picking – a former teacher no less – provides the team with a report card grade.
     


    Then we head to EF, and the American team that went from 17 wins in 2019 to 17 wins this year. There was no Monument win this time around but the team were aggressive in every format of racing – they won stages in all three Grand Tours and finished on the podium in the Vuelta a España. They also won the Critérium du Dauphiné with one of the best days of racing we saw all year, and even if you strip out the wins they took outside of the WorldTour – for example, the wins in Colombia – they were impressive. Our presenters look back on the year for the team before Mr Pickering provides his end of season grade.

    Will the Giro reach Milan, possible teams for Cavendish and Longo Borghini interview

    In the latest Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello, we talk about the precarious situation at the Giro d’Italia after a number of positive COVID-19 tests have lead to two teams withdrawing and one additional team’s management requesting that the race come to an early end.
    We discuss if the Giro will make it to Milan or not and how the organisers are vowing to carry on.
    We also hear from Mark Cavendish, who spoke to the media in Belgium this week, and we look at the potential teams that he could join in 2021.
    With the men’s and women’s Tour of Flanders coming up we look at the favourites and we talk to Elisa Longo Borghini about her season, the Classics and Trek Segafredo.

    The road ahead for Mark Cavendish, Gent-Wevelgem and Giro d’Italia highlights

    The road ahead for Mark Cavendish, Gent-Wevelgem and Giro d’Italia highlights

    In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, we look back at the Giro d’Italia, Gent-Wevelgem and talk about where Mark Cavendish goes from here after he told the world that Gent-Wevelgem might be his final race.  We also hear from Mads Pedersen, Jack Haig, and Alex Dowsett.
    We start with Mark Cavendish, who told reporters that Gent-Wevelgem could be his final race as pro rider. In emotional scenes, the British rider gave little else away but with his contract up and no confirmation of an extension at Bahrain McLaren could this be it for the sprinter who has won 30 stages of the Tour de France, Milan-San Remo, and many more races? Daniel Benson and Ed Pickering discuss the huge impact Cavendish has had on the sport, his major achievements, what he was like to interview, and how his personality and his fast finish went hand in hand.
    We also look back at the Giro d’Italia  - before the latest COVID-19 results were announced – and analyse the finish in the men’s edition Gent-Wevelgem. Coming up in the next edition of the podcast we have an exclusive interview with Elisa Longo Borghini from Trek Segafredo and preview the Vuelta a Espana.
