Giro starts with a bang as van der Poel proves ‘Golden Generation’ has come to cycling

Sir Bradley Wiggins is joined by Matt Stephens on the streets of Budapest following the Grande Partenza of the 2022 Giro d’Italia where Mathieu van der Poel lived up to his pre-race favourite status to win the opening stage and secure the pink jersey.


The pair discuss their favourites to finish in Pink in Verona where Great Britain’s Simon Yates is Matt’s favourite to bring home the goods for BikeExchange–Jayco. The legendary do also catch up on the highlights of the season so far as the Bradley Wiggins Show has had a little break, but is back with a bang.


And of course, the focus had to come to Mark Cavendish, where you can hear real-time the pair realise just how much of a legend the sprinter is, but will he be going to the Tour de France?


And it wouldn’t be a pod on the Giro without the love for Italy’s signature grand tour oozing from the duo, where Matt tells the story of the time he beat Marco Pantani.
