The Bradley Wiggins Show by Eurosport
Yates was beaten by Ineos, not Bernal | Stage 20 left an ‘empty feeling’
Sir Bradley Wiggins is joined by Graham Willgoss and Orla Chennaoui for the latest podcast to review Stage 20 of the Giro.
The Ineos Grenadiers once again produced an exhibition of General Classification riding on Saturday. The performance all but delivered Egan Bernal a second Grand Tour win, and left a stage that had promised fireworks, lacking in genuine GC action. That fact left Chennaoui feeling ‘empty’.
Simon Yates cracked in the final few kilometres but the Team BikeExchange rider will likely finish on the podium, which Wiggins and Chennaoui agree is a great result, concluding that ultimately the Brit was beaten by the collective excellence of Ineos.
In fact, Ineos have such depth that, Wiggins says, they could name a completely different team for the Tour de France and remain as strong.
The pressure of team leadership is also debated given the contrasting fates of Bahrain–McLaren team-mates Damiano Caruso and Mikel Landa.
Finally, the big reveal: Who will be singing what at the karaoke wrap party.
