We chat to Alex Dowsett on how Covid stole his Hour attempt, winning that Giro stage and staying in the WorldTour

On 12th December, Britain's Alex Dowsett was set to take to the Manchester Velodrome an his attempt to regain the Hour Record from Belgian Victor Campenaerts... then he caught Covid.

Joe and James caught up with Dowsett while he was in isolation to talk catching Covid and it forcing him to postpone his Hour attempt, why he was certain he could go better than his 2015 effort and recapture the record and about that memorable Giro d'Italia stage win which kept him in cycling's WorldTour.
