Welcome to another episode of The Bike Lane. With the Giro d’Italia more than halfway through, we speak to Nathan Haas about his first Grand Tour, we re-evaluate our estimates of Cadel Evans’ form, and ask: “Has Brad Wiggins lost his nerve?” And the always sharp Will Walker gives us his view of Adam Hansen’s impressive win on stage 7.

The Weekend Warrior segment is back, we chat to former Fairfax Digital Editor Mike Van Niekerk about cycling, drugs and the media, we’ve got a Target Healthy Living Tips segment about how to recover from injury, What’s On Your Mind and The Hot Lap. Enjoy!

In this episode we cover the following issues:

  • Giro d’Italia:
    • Could Cadel Evans win the Giro?
    • Why is Brad Wiggins descending so poorly? Has he lost his nerve?
    • Adam Hansen: one of the most popular stage winners at the Giro?
  • Weekend Warrior presented by Champion Systems: the depth of Colombian cycling
  • What’s on your mind? “Organised” bunch rides: good fun/training, or recipe for disaster?
  • The Hot Lap:(see the Strava segment here): Can four-time 1km time trial world champion Shane Kelly beat Tiffany Cherry’s Hot Lap time around the Yarra Boulevard crit track?
  • Target Healthy Living: What training can you do when you’re injured?
  • Interview with Mike van Niekerk: cycling, drugs, sport and the media
  • Interview with Nathan Haas: how is his first grand tour going and what of Ryder Hesjedal’s form
