    Lighting it up in the Alps and a big win at Amstel - Watts Occurring powered by Eurosport

    Lighting it up in the Alps and a big win at Amstel - Watts Occurring powered by Eurosport

    Well, day one at the Tour of the Alps was a cracker wasn't it - and after a tasty, attacking finale, G came home sixth, three seconds back on teammate and stage winner Tobias Foss. He jumped straight on the massage table, called up Luke, and gave him the rundown.
    Meanwhile the boys are fresh from their first alternative commentary with Eurosport - head to @eurosportcycling on Instagram to relive the boys' commentating efforts on the Amstel Gold Race! And after they came off air, INEOS Grenadiers put on a show, setting up Tom Pidcock for his first (well... maybe second) Amstel title.
    Luke and G analyse that win and look ahead to Fleche and this Sunday's final spring Monument, Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Before that, G's got a few Alpine mountains to summit. Send him your best.
    We'll be back next week - if not before...

    Crashes, classics, and concussion - Watts Occurring powered by Eurosport

    Crashes, classics, and concussion - Watts Occurring powered by Eurosport

    The boys are back to discuss the fastest ever edition of Roubaix, won in serious style by world champ Mathieu van der Poel. Yes, that's the bloke who won Flanders too. He is untouchable right now - although, of course, if Luke wasn't suffering from concussion, he'd have taken it to the Dutchman...
    Speaking of Luke's concussion, he's got a bit of bad news on that front. He's still suffering after his crash in E3 and is back off the bike. He's hoping to be back to normal soon, but there's no rushing an issue like this.
    G is trucking along happily in Sierra and should be back in action at the Tour of the Alps this time next week. See you then for a racing update from our elder statesman, who is now less than a month out from the Giro.

    Flanders review, training with Pog, and a concussion update: the boys are back - Watts Occurring powered by Eurosport

    The boys are back - and we've got some news: Watts Occurring is now powered by Eurosport!
    We're delighted to welcome Eurosport as our new title sponsor for 2024. We've got lots of exciting things planned, including Luke, G and Tom doing a spot of alternative commentary... More details on that soon.
    Before then the boys are back with the first Watts Occurring of 2024 - and there's lots to catch up on. Luke's overcoming his concussion, G's been training with Pog in Sierra Nevada and the boys do a deep dive looking back on an incredible Flanders.
    It's good to be back. See you next week for a Roubaix recap.

    Luke Rowe on what the future holds, a difficult 2023, and riding back to form

    Luke Rowe on what the future holds, a difficult 2023, and riding back to form

    When we ask our GTCC members for guest suggestions, one man often comes up: Mr Luke Rowe.
    Of course Luke is a part of the GTCC family and a familiar voice to you all as half of Watts Occurring, but for the final GTCC episode of season four we thought we'd shine the spotlight on our other Welshman and dig into his career over the past few seasons, his plans for this year, and what life might look like when he's hung up his competitive wheels.
    2023 wasn't kind to Luke. He lost his Mum, Alyson, in April and - as anybody can imagine - cycling took a back seat for a while. But, having penned a fresh two-year contract at the end of the season, he's hoping for a big 2024.
    And so after another incredible series, we call time on the GTCC! We'll be back next week with the first Watts Occurring of 2024 - and back in October for GTCC S5.

    Sir Jim Ratcliffe on riding with G, crashing with Chris Froome, buying Manchester United and his love of sport

    Sir Jim Ratcliffe on riding with G, crashing with Chris Froome, buying Manchester United and his love of sport

    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!

I’ve listen to many of your very good interviews. My favourite is the interview with the charming Johan Museeuw.
