124: Goodbye Tom, Hello Tom

Our final episode before the Vuelta a España sees Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe meet up in London to discuss the week's big talking points in the world of professional cycling.

With Tom Dumoulin's move from Team Sunweb to Jumbo-Visma confirmed, we weigh up the biggest transfer of the summer so far. The former Giro d'Italia champion and Tour de France runner-up will add to a formidable-looking stage race line-up at his new team but can the Dutch squad strike the balance and keep their many stars happy? And what does this mean for Team Sunweb?

We also pay tribute to Felice Gimondi, who passed away aged 76. Gimondi was a legend of Italian cycling – only the second man, after Jacques Anquetil, to win all three grand tours.

Finally, we look ahead to the last grand tour of the season, the Vuelta a España, which kicks off with a team time trial on Saturday evening.

The Cycling Podcast will be in Spain for the duration of the race and nightly coverage begins on Saturday, with three episodes of Kilometre 0 released during each week.
