Luke Plapp: UAE Tour debrief, Worlds, Grand Tours & More

March 6, 2022

In this episode of The Press Room, I catch up with Ineos Grenadier and Australian Road Race Champion – Luke Plapp. We had a lot to cover since our first episode back in season 1 and so we began with the recent UAE Tour where Plappy was a force in the leadouts and showed his climbing potential finishing in the front group on both mountain stages including 5th on Jabel Hafeet. We also get Plapp’s opinion on the World’s ITT course, his favourite Oakleys, his coffee obsession and he even shares some inside knowledge into the Australian Junior Worlds team traditions.
