In this week’s episode Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe review opening weekend in Flanders and the first cobbled classics of the spring, Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne on Sunday.

We hear from Jake Stewart, the 21-year-old from Coventry who was second at Het Nieuwsblad – the youngest podium finisher since Eddy Merckx in 1966 – and rides for the French team, Groupama-FDJ.

We also look ahead to Paris-Nice and speak to Matteo Jorgenson, an American who rides for Movistar: another 21-year-old tipped for great things. And we hear from Laura Meseguer about El Cycling Podcast, our new Spanish-language podcast.
