World of Cycling: Are Jumbo-Visma the most dominant team ever?
Conor Dunne is joined by Tom Southam and William Fotheringham to discuss the Vuelta a España, also featuring Jetse Bol, Rob Hatch, and our stats guru Cillian Kelly
Few, if any, could have predicted how the Vuelta a España would be shaped up heading into the first rest day of the race. Sepp Kuss of Jumbo-Visma leads but is remarkably followed by teammates Primož Roglič and Sepp Kuss in second and third, respectively. The Dutch superteam stands on the precipice of history.
Many riders have been saying that this year's Vuelta stacks up as the toughest Grand Tour they have ever ridden, and to get an inside view from the peloton, we hear from Burgos-BH's Jetse Bol. Alongside the Dutchman, we get a view from Rob Hatch on how the race is shaping up and get an insight into the pain of the Alto de l’Angliru from GCN's Conor Dunne.
