We're delighted to welcome a BIG guest to the GTCC today - G's boss and the head of INEOS, Sir Jim Ratcliffe!
A huge cycling and sports fan, Jim is one of the most talked about men in the sporting world right now, following his investment into Manchester United.
The INEOS Sport portfolio continues to grow and, over an hour and a cup of coffee in his Monaco office, Jim was more than happy to chat to Geraint and Tom about how he's ended up owning one of the world's largest cycling teams, an America's Cup sailing team, two other football clubs, a stake in the Mercedes F1 team, become a major sponsor of the All Blacks, and so much more.
There's also an excellent anecdote about being crashed by Chris Froome - yes, really - plus a lot of chat about Jim's plans for returning United to the top of English and world football.
We hope this gives you a great insight into Sir Jim and a better understanding of his sporting investments.
Meanwhile G's straight back to work - this time in Catalunya, as he continues his prep for the Giro.
We'll see you next week for the last GTCC of season four!
