Dave McKenzie: 2024 Giro d’Italia Preview

May 2, 2024

In episode 105, I catch up with Giro stage winner, SBS commentator and my good mate Dave McKenzie to discuss some hot topics ahead of this year’s Giro d’Italia.

Macca and I discuss the “dominance vs. entertainment” theme referring to Pogacar’s likely sweep of the Giro GC and speculate about Sam Welsford’s surprising exclusion from the Bora Hansgrohe team. We preview some of the exciting teams and riders to keep an eye on, and finally, I squeeze the classic story from Macca’s epic solo giro stage win from the glory days.
