The Bradley Wiggins Show by Eurosport


Bernal's Ineos flawless but Yates can gamble | Sagan furore nothing new

Season 4, Ep. 13

Sir Bradley Wiggins is joined by Graham Willgoss and Sean ‘The King’ Kelly to dissect Simon Yates’ solo win on Stage 19 and its ramifications.

Yates’ performance all but guarantees him a podium finish prompting Kelly to posit that the Brit can apply pressure on Egan Bernal by gambling on Stage 20.

However, Wiggins, who called Ineos’ Giro performance near flawless, sees Bernal wearing the maglia rosa to Milan, praising his mentality. Here is what Wiggins said:

“Different animals come out on the bike. Off it Bernal is very gentle, on it, he’s a killer. It’s a mental strength that separates the great from the good.”

Elsewhere, Wiggins and Kelly discuss hierarchies within the peloton after Peter Sagan was fined for ‘intimidation’ on Stage 18. The scenes that led to Sagan’s sanction, it was concluded, have always happened.
