S12 Ep23: Cobbling Together History

The Cycling Podcast Féminin team are looking back over a thrilling cobbled Classics season. Rose Manley, Denny Gray and Orla Chennaoui pick out their favourite moments, hero riders and big surprises from the cobbled races this year.  Catching the team’s attention are emotional moments for Pfeiffer Georgi and Kasia Niewiadoma, breakthrough moments for Puck Pieterse and Letizia Paternoster and heroic antics from Shirin van Anrooij and Lotte Kopecky. With so many exhilarating moments to choose from, will Rose, Denny and Orla agree on anything? Our mini feature this month is on the women’s Ronde Van Vlaanderen which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. With the help of journalists and riders who were there, we explore some of the stories and moments that came out of the early editions of the race. Oenone Wood, Loes Gunnewijk, Giorgia Bronzini and Marion Clignet all share their recollections of races that have been overlooked in recent history.

S12 Ep22: Sing When You’re Winning

 In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe visits top Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch at home - or is it vice versa - and they’re joined by the now-retired cobbles maestro Mitch Docker for a considered look back at the events of the last week.  After the usual round-up of the big stories, it’s back to last weekend and Paris-Roubaix. After the unique insight into British national champion Fred Wright’s preparation for the “Hell of the North” featured in our Arrivée episode on Sunday, there’s more of the same today. We also hear from two riders who made memories while missing the time-cut, before reflecting on Mathieu van der Poel’s latest masterclass.  The headlines away from Roubaix were dominated, regrettably, by a horrendous crash at the Tour of the Basque Country. We wade into the safety debate while pondering what last week could mean for the Tour de France.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast NordVPN This episode is supported by NordVPN.

S12 Ep21: Arrivée | Paris-Roubaix 2024 | Men's Race

In our latest Arrivée episode of the Classics season, Daniel Friebe & Richard Abraham give their verdict on the 121st edition of Paris-Roubaix or the “Hell of the North”. Fresh off his third victory in the Tour of Flanders last week, Mathieu van der Poel was the hot favourite to also land his second Roubaix title. Richard Abraham was in France to see whether MvdP could add a sixth Monument to his palmarès - or whether a cast of challengers headed by Mads Pedersen was able to thwart him.  The episode also features a unique insight into Bahrain Victorious leader Fred Wright’s recon of the Roubaix cobbles last week. buycycle Arrivée is supported by buycycle.

S12 Ep20: Arrivée | Paris-Roubaix 2024 | Women’s Race

In this latest Arrivée episode from The Cycling Podcast Féminin, Rose Manley and Rebecca Charlton take a closer look at one of the most anticipated races on the calendar, Paris-Roubaix Femmes. After three explosive editions since the inaugural women’s race in 2021, expectations were high for the 2024 race. The odds were in Lidl-Trek’s favour having taken the win twice before. However, Team SD Worx were looking for revenge after being kept off the podium at last week’s Tour of Flanders with World Champion Lotte Kopecky hoping to continue her string of impressive results. Paris-Roubaix is Paris-Roubaix though and anything can happen on those unforgiving 148.5 kilometres and 17 cobbled sectors.

S12 Ep19: Flanders Classic?

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is again joined by journalist Richard Abraham and former Classics maestro Mitch Docker, as we revisit the men’s Tour of Flanders on Sunday and review some of the more salient and controversial talking points from ‘Vlaanderens Mooiste’. Mathieu van der Poel’s third Flanders victory was his most emphatic to date, but his triumphant solo move on the Koppenberg - while others floundered in his wake - also raised questions about whether that iconic climb should be removed from the Ronde course. We discuss this, Michael Matthews’ relegation in the sprint for the minor places, plus the accomplished performances of Movistar and runner-up Luca Mozzato. In the last part of the episode, thoughts then turn to Paris-Roubaix next weekend and the Tour of the Basque Country - where the ‘home team’ is lining up with a surprising import.

S12 Ep18: Arrivée | Tour of Flanders 2024 | Women's Race

For our first Féminin Arrivée of the season, Rose Manley and Denny Gray pore over an explosive edition of the Tour of Flanders. Team SD Worx start the race with World Champion and home favourite Lotte Kopecky looking to make it a hat-trick of Ronde Van Vlaanderen victories.  But can Lidl-Trek, a team growing in confidence and tactical nous, finally reap their rewards? And what of the GOAT Marianne Vos, can she add a title here to her wins from Dwars door Vlaanderen and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad already this season? buycycle Arrivée is supported by buycycle.

S12 Ep17: Arrivée | Tour of Flanders 2024 | Men's Race

In our second Arrivée episode of the Classics season, Daniel Friebe & Richard Abraham deliver their verdict on the 108th edition of the Tour of Flanders or Ronde van Vlaanderen. With Wout van Aert’s spring campaign ruined by a crash in Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday, the Belgian’s long-time bête noire, Mathieu van der Poel, started the race as the hot favourite. Find out whether MvdP could become the first reigning world champion since Peter Sagan in 2016 to ride to Flanders glory in the rainbow jersey - or who among the cast of challengers, led by Mads Pedersen & Matteo Jorgenson, managed to thwart him. buycycle Arrivée is supported by buycycle.

S12 Ep16: Mads as a March Hare

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by former Classics stalwart Mitch Docker and the journalist Richard Abraham, as we look back at last weekend’s pre-Ronde van Vlaanderen appetisers, the E3 Saxo Classic and Gent-Wevelgem. Friday saw the latest masterclass from Mathieu van der Poel in E3, which  underlined his status as the outstanding favourite for De Ronde. Forty-eight hours later, though, Mads Pedersen’s victory over Van der Poel in Gent-Wevelgem led some to wonder whether Lidl-Trek had happened upon the perfect blueprint for defeating the Dutchman - not that the strategy will be easy to implement on Sunday.  In the final part of the podcast, we hear from a rider for whom just being on the startline on Sunday will represent a personal triumph - the Dane Michael Valgren, whose career was almost ended by a horror crash in the 2022 Route Occitanie.  Babbel Learn a language the fun, easy way with intuitive 15-minute lessons you can do when you want.

S12 Ep15: Last Woman Back

Our mini-feature this month focuses on the final riders to complete Paris-Roubaix. Riders who have had to overcome difficult circumstances to reach the end of one of the most formidable races in cycling, even when they finished way outside of the time limit. We speak to Ilaria Sanguineti, Eluned King and Senne Knaven about what motivated them to push past crashes, injuries and calamitous conditions to reach the famed velodrome and what it is like to ride the famous cobbles once the race is already long gone. We also have plenty of race analysis from the first few Classics of the season. Rose Manley is joined by Denny Gray and Rebecca Charlton to pick apart what could be a changing of the guard at the top of the women’s peloton. Elisa Balsamo outsprinted rider-of-the-moment Lotte Kopecky to take the spoils at Trofeo Binda after a huge effort from her team. With Lidl-Trek finally taking the top spot after improving results and rising confidence, we ask: what gave Lidl-Trek the winning edge and could it finally end SD Worx’s winning dominance? We also discuss Ellen Van Dijk’s victorious return from maternity leave, pick out rising stars Mareille Meijering and Puck Pieterse, and make a rare detour on to the track to reflect on Laura Kenny’s golden career following her retirement.

S12 Ep14: The Pog & Phoneline

This week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast comes from the latest stop on Daniel Friebe’s springtime Mediterranean tour, Mallorca, and precisely the home of Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch. That pair are joined by journalist Richard Abraham, as we revisit some of the most compelling storylines from Milan-Sanremo at the weekend.  Jasper Philipsen’s victory on Via Roma meant heartache for Tadej Pogačar and his UAE Team Emirates team - and prompted questions about their strategy. Will Pog now have to rethink his not-yet-winning formula in La Classicissima, particularly in light of his newly declared ambition to become the greatest rider in history? Speaking of history, in a special investigation, Daniel sets off in search of a piece of Sanremo’s. And, speaking of the future, Mathieu van der Poel has just committed the next decade to one company, as Rob reports.  NordVPN This episode is supported by NordVPN.

S12 Ep12: American Flyers

This week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast is a special dispatch from the Côte d’Azur, partly recorded at the home of our own Captain America - better known to us as Décathlton-AG2r La Mondiale’s ‘Motown Maestro’ Larry Warbasse - and featuring an exclusive interview with Visma-Lease a Bike’s newly crowned Paris-Nice champion, Matteo Jorgenson, on the morning after his triumph on the Promenade des Anglais.  Larry and Daniel Friebe kick off with a recap of some of the week’s big stories, including Paris-Nice. Jorgenson’s victory was the most important in his flourishing career to date - and, over coffee in Nice’s Vieux Port, the Californian by birth, Idahoer by upbringing and Niçois by adoption tells Daniel how he overcame pre-race favourite Remco Evenepoel and childhood friend Brandon McNulty. After that, also in Nice, we hear journalist François Thomazeau’s reflections on what was due to be his final Race to the Sun.   In the last part, it’s back to Larry’s secluded hideaway in Èze to hear about his week in Italy at Tirreno-Adriatico. Larry will also be in action at Milano-Sanremo at the weekend - and he reveals some of the secrets of La Classicissima here, while also pondering what Tadej Pogačar has to do to win.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep11: The Whole Pog

In this week's episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and journalist Richard Abraham are back in the bike race bubble at Paris-Nice, where two of the Big Four contenders for this year's Tour de France start to piece together their preparations for July.  Remco Evenepoel comes fresh from victory at the Volta ao Algarve but is taking on a stage race on French soil for the first time in his career. Meanwhile Primož Roglič looks to open his account for his new team, BORA-hansgrohe, at a race he won in 2022. We discuss the expectations of both riders and hear from experienced Australian Jack Haig on what makes Paris-Nice a race of singular difficulty.  Of course we also tackle the weekend's big talking point, namely the exploits of another one of the Big Four, or should that be the Super Six: Tadej Pogačar at Strade Bianche. Daniel and Richard hear from Pog's former teammate Matteo Trentin and digest an 81km solo victory that will undoubtedly go down as one of one of his greatest hits.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep10: Mum's the word

We’re looking at motherhood in our February episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin. With Ellen Van Dijk’s much-anticipated return from maternity leave on the horizon, we explore the growing trend of racers returning to the peloton post-baby. Rose Manley speaks to Lizzie Deignan, one of the first women to be supported by her team to a return to racing and her agent Emma Wade, as well as new mum and Uno-X rider Joss Lowden, former Trek-Segafredo rider Abi Van Twisk and former British champion Meg Backstedt (née Hughes). Rose is also joined by Orla Chennaoui and Denny Gray to look at the recent racing, most notably a rare debut win for the GOAT Marianne Vos at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Discussion descends into bickering as the team try to decide how well Lidl-Trek played their tactics at the race after finishing third and fourth. We also ponder Lotte Kopecky’s recent transformation after showing off her climbing legs on the UAE Tour’s Jebel Hafeet and wonder how that might affect a seemingly tense relationship with teammate Demi Vollering.

S12 Ep9: Yellow Fever

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by the veteran French journalist François Thomazeau and the Aussie former Classics maestro Mitch Docker to recap Opening Weekend - the Belgian double-header dominated, as per the predictions, by the Visma-Lease a Bike team.  Wout Van Aert was the favourite for Saturday’s Omloop het Nieuwsblad and indeed looked to be zeroing in on victory until the peloton him down in the closing kilometres. It was left to Jan Tratnik to ‘save’ Visma-Lease a Bike and take the win…with Van Aert having to wait until the following day’s Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne to open his Classics account for 2024. We discuss these and other notable performances from the two races, and also hear from Bahrain Victorious’s Fred Wright about what went…wrong for him at Omloop. Julian Alaphilippe, too, has had better weekends, and would have been hoping for a better response to his boss, Patrick Lefevere’s, recent criticism in the Belgian media. Nevertheless, we ask: what exactly was Lefevere playing at?  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep8: Weekend Warriors

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by the journalist Richard Abraham & top commentator Rob Hatch, as we look forward to a very eagerly anticipated Opening Weekend in Belgium.  Before thoughts turn to Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne,, we review some racing highlights from the last weekend, most notably from the Algarve in Portugal, where Remco Evenepoel passed the 50-victory mark in his still very young career. We then shift our attention to the Var in France, where our ‘own’ Larry Warbasse performed with some distinction on a fine weekend for his Décathlon-AG2r La Mondiale team..  In the final part of the episode, we focus on two upcoming races where Visma-Lease a Bike will be expected to pick up where they left off in 2023, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and O Gran Camiño in Galicia, Spain - start ramp for Jonas Vingegaard’s 2024 campaign. We hear from one rider who’ll be hoping to thwart the “killer bees”  in Belgium, Fred Wright of Bahrain Victorious, before telling you why tall trees may fall hard in the not-too-distant future in Galicia - even if that doesn’t apply to Vingegaard this weekend.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep7: Stars & Watercarriers

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by the journalist Richard Abraham & Décathlon-AG2r La Mondiale stalwart Larry Warbasse - a still slightly soggy Larry Warbasse after his season’s début at a very wet Tour de la Provence. We discuss how Mads Pedersen whipped up a storm that blew the rest of the field away in the south of France - & ask whether the weather conditions themselves were even fit for racing. The Belgian whirlwind, Remco Evenepoel, also began his season at the weekend in Portugal, & did so with a trademark long range win. We hear from him, while turning our thoughts to the Tour de France; that race will also define everything Mark Cavendish does between now and July, and the Astana sprinter’s coach, Vasilis Anastopoulos, gives us a full debrief on a successful start to the year in Colombia. Finally, we look ahead to one of the less ballyhooed races taking place in the coming days - The Tour of Rwanda - & hear from one rider for whom it will literally mean the end of the road.

S12 Ep6: A Mads Rush

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by top commentator Rob Hatch and the Danish former comms chief turned team manager turned journalist, Brian Nygaard.  We take a look back at a busy week of racing - including the cyclocross World Championships - and some of the biggest stories of the last week, including heartening news about the Tour of Britain. It’s then time to focus on some of the big talking points and performances at the AlUla Tour, Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and Étoile de Bessèges - including an excellent week for Brian’s countryman, the Lidl-Trek star Mads Pedersen.  In the final part of the podcast, we discuss the upcoming 20th anniversary of Marco Pantani’s death and - with the help of a couple of Italian friends - arrive at the conclusion that ‘il Pirata’s’ life and legacy still deserve to be revisited.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep5: Poel Position

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by two of cycling’s most recognisable and beloved commentators - Renaat Schotte and Rob Hatch - to discuss to the start of the European road season and look ahead to the cyclocross Worlds in Tábor, Czechia.  The reigning ‘cross world champions, Mathieu van der Poel and Fem Van Empel, are both favourites to retain their titles at the weekend. Renaat tells us why a Van der Poel victory, in particular, looks a safe bet…but possibly not a foregone conclusion.  In the last part of the podcast, we switch our attention to the tarmac and examine some of the themes of the road season so far. After last week’s laurels for the 20-year-old Mexican wunderkind Isaac Del Toro, we’re treated to an even closer look at his journey to the top by some of the men and women who first brought him to Europe with the A.R. Monex team.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep4: Aussies and Kiwis

We’re looking at life a little upside down in the first Cycling Podcast Feminin of the year. Special guest cycling journalist Rebecca Charlton joins Rose Manley and Denny Gray to look over the first Women’s World Tour race of the year – the Tour Down Under in Australia. We analyse the veracity of overall winner Sarah Gigante’s claims that she was “washed up” at the age of 23 and all get into a hotly-fought argument over Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig’s prospects for the year. We’re also introducing the first in our year-long series of mini features. In this month’s episode we look into the current crop of talented New Zealand racers and ask what’s behind the sudden rise in Kiwi riders. Rose speaks to World Tour talents Niamh Fisher-Black and Mikayla Harvey plus former TIBCO rider Jo Kiesanowski and Patrick Harvey, manager of the development team Black Magic Women.  The team also round-up the latest news on the future of the Women’s Tour following the liquidation of organisers Sweetspot.

S12 Ep3: Stevie Wonder (&) The 20 Year Old Genius

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by former peloton stalwart Mitch Docker and former pressroom stalwart François Thomazeau to review the first WorldTour race of the 2024 season, the Santos Tour Down Under. We discuss how Stevie Williams’ thrilling overall victory represents a return from the brink for the Welsh rider - and one tinged with controversy. The other two breakout stars of the race were BORA-Hansgrohe sprinter Sam Welsford and UAE Team Emirates’ 20-year-old Mexican prodigy Isaac del Toro. We investigate Del Toro’s roots - and look at phenoms of yesteryear who did or didn’t deliver on their early promise.  There’s also the usual round-up of the week’s news and a look at what INEOS Grenadiers are plotting - and trying to change - in 2024.  Follow us on social media: Twitter @cycling_podcast Instagram @thecyclingpodcast The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S12 Ep2: Caleb Ewan - Homeward (Re)Bound

When, midway through last year’s Tour de France, Caleb Ewan ‘celebrated’ his 29th birthday, in fact far from rejoicing, the Aussie sprinter was enduring some of the most difficult days of his career - out of form and out of favour with his Lotto-Dstny team, so much so that his boss, Stéphane Heulot, would respond to Ewan quitting La Grande Boucle by questioning his professionalism.  Ewan’s relationship with Lotto looked irredeemably broken - and indeed, three months later, Jayco-Alula announced that they and Ewan were to reunite in 2024. Another three months have now passed since that news broke - and Ewan is finally ready to set the record straight, as he did in this in-depth interview with The Cycling Podcast on the eve of The Tour Down Under: on why he and Heulot never hit it off; on whether, as reports suggested last summer, he even contemplated retirement; and, most importantly, on his new beginning with the team where for him it all started.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

In this special episode of The Cycling Podcast, as a festive treat, we serve up a Christmas selection box of highlights from the 2023 men's Grand Tours. Proceeding in chronological order, we journey back in time first to May and the Giro d'Italia, where Daniel Friebe and Brian Nygaard saw lots of rain, a race that took its time to catch light, then a finale for the ages.  Next, Lionel Birnie took over at the steering wheel for the Tour de France - variously assisted and accompanied by François Thomazeau, Mitch Docker, Lizzy Banks, Ian Boswell and Richard Abraham.  Finally, it was on to Spain and the Vuelta - where Daniel and an assortment of familiar guests saw Jumbo-Visma continue their quest to make history by winning all three Grand Tours in a single season.

Yes, it’s the most wonderful time of year… Christmas quiz time! Reigning champ (or so she claims) Orla Chennaoui pits herself against quiz debutant Denny Gray in Rose Manley’s fiendish Yuletide puzzler. Let your brain be bamboozled by humdingers like, how many corners were there in the World Champs course? Did Demi Vollering really explain her teammate’s toilet habits in a post-race interview? And most crucially, which rider is “Orange Bumcrease”? As is only appropriate at Christmas time, prepare for a whole load of sledging on all sides. Before all that, Rose, Orla and Denny reveal their racing highlights of the year and in a Cycling Podcast first, Denny closes the show with his performance of “12 Days of SD Worx-mas”.  Merry Christmas to all our listeners!

S11 Ep146: Rolf Lessons - Rog, Cian, Cav, Ullrich and more with Bora-Hansgrohe’s Head of Sports Rolf Aldag

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, we visit Bora-Hansgrohe at their December billet in Mallorca for an in-depth interview with the team’s Head of Sports Rolf Aldag.  It turned out to be a timely conversation, coming as it did hot on the heels of news that Cian Uijtdebroeks had walked out on Bora-Hansgrohe to sign for Jumbo-Visma - his agent claimed after his Bora deal had been terminated, the team said a year before it was due to expire.  Here, Aldag talks to us about Uijtdebroeks’ shock exit and what it could mean for Bora, the rider and the sport. We also, of course, discuss the star signing who has recently moved the other way, from Jumbo to Bora, Primož Roglič. There’s much more besides – on Rolf’s own career, the winning formula he helped to create at HTC High Road, Jan Ullrich’s belated doping confession and Mark Cavendish’s hopes of another Tour de France stage win.

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, long-time Grand Tour diarist Pavel Sivakov joins us to reflect on his 2023 season and look ahead to his imminent move to the world’s number one-ranked team, UAE Team Emirates.  The winner of the Giro della Toscana in September and a top-10 finisher in six stage races, Sivakov enjoyed his best season ever in 2023 - and yet recognises that, in some pundits’ eyes, his Grand Tour results are still used as the single measure of his career trajectory. He and Daniel Friebe discuss why that is while also looking back at his time at INEOS, examining that team’s quest to build a new identity, dissecting his own issues with self-doubt - and casting thoughts ahead to the next phase of his career.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe is joined by ace Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch to discuss the latest headlines from the world of professional cycling and some of the burning issues of the week.  In Germany, the hot topic of the last few days has been the release of the new, multi-part Jan Ullrich documentary ‘Der Gejagte’. Daniel reports back on what we as viewers learn and also reflects on how the film in some ways acts as the perfect afterword to his Ullrich biography.  In the final part of the episode, there’s time for a bit more self-examination - in this case from Rob on the ever-evolving craft of the commentator.  The 12 Hills of Christmas route on Strava The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

Are they on the brink of a bright new era or contemplating a crisis of identity?  There’s also discussion of the news last week that GCN+ and the GCN App are to close – in addition to the usual round-up of the latest headlines.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep142: Rootin’ Tootin’ Van Vleuten!

It’s an Annemiek Van Vleuten special on The Cycling Podcast Feminin. Rose Manley and Denny Gray reflect back on the racing career of one of the most successful and influential riders in the sport following her retirement in September.  Rose sits down with Van Vleuten herself to talk about the things that shaped her as a rider and how she’s finding post-retirement life. And Van Vleuten reveals what’s next for her both personally and professionally. We also look back at the ways in which Van Vleuten shaped the cycling world: from her winning-against-the-odds mentality to her extreme training regime. To help us decipher this part of her legacy, Denny speaks to her Movistar teammate Katrine Aalerud who continues to be directly inspired by Van Vleuten's approach to racing. Aalerud also offers up her insight on what it is like riding in service of one of the greatest cyclists of this generation and what Van Vleuten is like off-the-bike too. Plus, we dig back into the archives to hear Richard Moore's interview with Van Vleuten's coach from May 2020. Richard talks to Louis Delahaije about how his unique approach to training unlocked Van Vleuten's continual success. The nature of her training now being one of the most important parts of her ongoing legacy. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, we take you inside one of the more dramatic and harrowing stories of the 2023 season - a crash that abruptly ended one rider’s realistic chance of winning the Giro d’Italia, his season and also his seven-year career with the team that, as a teenager, he had dreamed of one day joining.  That rider is Tao Geoghegan Hart - and he is also our guest and Daniel Friebe’s conversation partner this week. We hear about the initial trauma of the accident, the ordeal of the days that followed and the slow and sometimes tedious battle to regain fitness. In addition, Tao looks ahead to his new start with Lidl-Trek and nominates some of his heroes and heroines of 2023.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep140: The Revolution Will Be Televised (But Probably Won’t Happen)

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe & Brian Nygaard delve deeper into one of the stories of a wild pro cycling autumn - the revelation that half a dozen World Tour teams want to launch their own league or series to help secure their (financial) future. Brian was at the bleeding edge of two previous attempts to do precisely this - and he helps us understand why neither ultimately came to fruition. There’s also the usual news round-up, including reports of a bleak outlook for the Tour of Britain.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

There’s also an honest analysis of AG2r’s fortunes over the past few months - and where they can and need to improve next year.  In addition, we round up the week’s news, including the latest attempt to bolster pro cycling’s income streams and the remarkable homecoming of a Colombian idol.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep138: Explore | The heat is on

Explore returns with Adam Bowie, one of The Cycling Podcast's producers, taking over the mic to document his ride at the 2023 Étape du Tour. Each July, the Étape gives thousands of riders a chance to experience the thrill of riding the route of a Tour de France stage on closed roads. This time it was the course of stage 14 from Annemasse to Morzine in the Alps, taking in the Col de Cou, Col du Feu, Col de la Ramaz and Col de Joux Plane. The Étape was celebrating its 30th anniversary – the first edition was held in 1993 and was 'won' by Christophe Rinero, who five years later won the king of the mountains. More recently, the fastest finisher in the 2018 Étape, Victor Lafay, won a stage of the 2023 Tour de France in San Sebastian. But for the other 16,000 participants the challenge is completing the stage. Regular listeners will remember Adam's episode of Explore from 2021, in which he tackled the 350-kilometre King Alfred's Way route in south-west England. This time, we join Adam in the Alps, as he takes on a reconnaissance ride a few days before the Étape... The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep137: Gen TikTok Tour

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, we review two big gala events that took place in Paris this week - the Vélo d’Or awards ceremony and the presentation of the 2024 Tour de France routes.  Daniel Friebe is joined by veteran reporter and resident francophile François Thomazeau plus top commentator Rob Hatch to give our verdict on the Vélo d’Or voting panel’s decisions - and on two Tour de France routes, men’s and women’s, that pack an awful lot of ingredients into what look like a pair of exceedingly rich cakes. Finally, we resume last week’s conversation about seasoned pros who find themselves jobless at the end of the 2023 campaign. After Tsgabu Grmay last week, it’s Joe Dombrowski’s turn to tell us about his fight to stay alive in the WorldTour.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep136: Speculate to Accumulate

This October episode of The Cycling Podcast Feminin is full of our podcast’s most dreaded thing “speculation”. Rose Manley and Denny Gray look over some of the rumours around next year’s Tour de France Femmes route which will apparently include a showstopping final day on the Alpe d’Huez. They also look ahead to some of how next season’s teams are shaping up, with Lidl-Trek and EF Education-Cannondale taking almost opposite approaches to their rosters. We hear from young Brit Abi Smith about her first years in the pro cycling world as she prepares to take a step up to join Team DSM next season. She speaks about how she has used painting this year as a mental escape from life on (or perhaps more accurately, off) the bike. And we cover the final races of the 2023 Women’s World Tour and hear from Tour of Guangxi winner Daria Pikulik. Plus, we stray ever so briefly on to the gravel to congratulate Kasia Niewiadoma on her World Championships win. We can hear Orla weeping happy tears all the way from Amsterdam!

S11 Ep135: Route & Branch Changes

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and ace commentator Rob Hatch examine one venerable Italian cycling institution’s latest iteration - the newly revealed 2024 Giro d’Italia route - and look at the brightest, most ambitious upstart on the same nation’s racing calendar: Filippo Pozzato and his races in the Veneto.  We deliver our own assessment of a noticeably less lofty-than-usual ‘Corsa Rosa’ route before hearing Jayco-AlUla head DS Matt White’s verdict. We, or rather Daniel, then literally travels to Italy to find out how Pozzato is trying to shake up an ageing, ailing Italian scene - and why he may need a bit more help from the Giro itself.  In the final part of the podcast, we reflect on the predicament of the many riders who find themselves jobless at the end of the 2023 season - and one in particular, the Ethiopian Tsgabu Grmay. He tells Daniel that, while his present plight looks bleak, his dreams and inner fire are very much still alive.

S11 Ep134: Pog-Eat-Rog World

This week’s episode features a comprehensive look back at the last monument of the season, Il Lombardia, and the latest example of Tadej Pogačar in just his latest annus mirabilis.  Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and Rob Hatch also reflect on Thibaut Pinot’s very noisy and memorable farewell, plus the full-stop on a few other notable careers last weekend. There’s also the latest on the merger that apparently will now never be, between Jumbo-Visma and Soudal-Quickstep. The former’s most decorated alumnus, Primož Roglič, is of course on his way to Bora-Hansgrohe, and their team boss, Ralph Denk tells us how he got his man.

S11 Ep133: How Much is that Rog-lič in the Window?

In this week’s bumper episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by French press-pack doyen François Thomazeau to discuss some dramatic events over the last seven days - and look ahead to il Lombardia at the weekend.  There’s the usual news round-up, then the labyrinthine tale of how Daniel tried to establish the 2024 destination of Primož Roglič. We also ponder the latest twists and turns in the Soudal-Quickstep/Jumbo-Visma saga and what they may mean for Remco Evenepoel, among others.  In the final part, there’s a look ahead to il Lombardia and the end of the road for TCP favourite Thibaut Pinot. We also bid farewell to François’ dear friend and Induráin-whisperer Francis Lafargue, who passed away last week.  There’s also the usual round-up of the week’s other news, including the results of last weekend’s European Championships.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep132: Interstellar Alliance: the merger that could realign the pro cycling planets

The Cycling Podcast returns this week with an in-depth look at the news story that has rocked the sport over the past few days: the revelation by Dutch website Wielerflits that the existing Jumbo-Visma and Soudal-Quick Step teams may be about to join forces. Daniel Friebe and ace Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch hear from the journalist who broke the story, Raymond Kerchoffs, and go on to discuss both the likelihood and the implications of any such move. Does it spell the end of the road for Primož Roglič at Jumbo-Visma ad the start of a new journey for Remco Evenepoel, perhaps alongside Jonas Vingegaard? We weigh up those possibilities and various permutations. There's the usual round-up of the week's other news, including results of last weekend's European Championships.

S11 Ep131: The World Tour After Van Vleuten

In this month’s episode of The Cycling Podcast Feminin, Rose Manley and Denny Gray pour over what has been a packed racing schedule since the World Championships. They pick out the defining moments and big breakthroughs from this closing part of the season which has included a nail-biting Tour of Scandinavia, a lively Tour de Romandie and a Simac Ladies Tour that was full of surprises. We also hear from Canyon-SRAM’s huge new talent Antonia Niedermaier who has already bagged a Giro stage win in her first year in the World Tour. The young German tells us about her double life as both an elite cyclist and an elite ski mountaineer and reveals her ambitions to compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympics. Rose and Denny also – dare we say – “speculate” on where we can expect the new rivalries and new winners to come next year now that one of the sport’s leading lights Annemiek Van Vleuten has retired. Van Vleuten said goodbye to racing at the Simac Ladies Tour, having racked up an astounding 104 wins in her 15 year elite career. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep109: The XL 2023 Vuelta Preview

The third and final Grand Tour of the men’s cycling season, La Vuelta a España, rolls out of Barcelona on Saturday August 26, and in this XL race preview we look ahead to what we are already calling “El Clásico”.  After the usual weekly news round-up, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie first examine the route, then the riders and particularly the favourites for overall glory in Madrid. To help them, they enlist one of the voices of Belgian cycling, commentator Renaat Schotte, our resident great Dane, Brian Nygaard, and Eurosport’s eyes on the ground in Spain, Laura Meseguer.  We also hear from the Motown Maestro, Larry Warbasse, who’ll be lining up in Barcelona for his AG2r-Citroën team, plus there’s a trip down TCP memory lane, through our own daily coverage of the Vuelta since 2016.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep107: The White Company

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel and Lionel are joined by Team Jayco-AlUla Director of High Performance and Racing Matt White to reflect on the UCI ‘Superworlds’, Jayco’s Tour de France and the start of cycling’s transfer window - and look ahead to the Vuelta a España.  Before that, we recap a busy week of news, including the announcement that former British Cycling and Team Sky doctor Richard Freeman has been handed a four-year ban for possession of a banned substance and twice lying to UK Anti-Doping investigators. We ask the question - are some or even all of successes amassed on Freeman’s watch now tarnished?

S11 Ep106: Arrivée | Women’s World Championship Road Race

The so-called ‘Super Worlds’ came to a conclusion with the women’s road race from Loch Lomond to Glasgow. Six laps of the city centre circuit created another hell-for-leather battle between the best riders in the world, creating a race that seemed to defy the normal rules of road racing. With the ‘A team’ of Rose, Orla and Lizzy unavailable for selection, Lionel Birnie is joined by Denny Gray to discuss the action on an afternoon when the race crowned a rider worthy of the world title and a year in the rainbow jersey.

In this week’s regular episode, we revisit last Sunday’s Men’s World Championship Road Race in the company of AG2r-Citroën ace Larry Warbasse, who was making his senior début in USA national team colours at the weekend. Despite Larry’s vital work early in the race, US team leader Neilson Powless couldn’t stop Mathieu van der Poel claiming the rainbow jersey - & we get Larry’s thoughts on a scintillating race & controversial Glasgow course. There’s also a brief & for Daniel excruciating discussion about the Van der Poel pitstop which made the tabloid headlines in Scotland on Monday. We hear, too, where the other medals have gone so far in Glasgow & look ahead to the men’s TT. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep104: Arrivée | Men's World Championship Road Race

Arrivée returns with our on-the-whistle review of the world championship men’s road race in Glasgow - where the grumbles about the crit-like course were drowned out by a pulsating, heavy metal battle for the rainbow jersey. Much of the pre-race speculation focused on the latest instalment of Mathieu van der Poel and Wout Van Aert’s age-old rivalry. Tadej Pogačar and Mads Pedersen were among the riders overshadow them and indeed defending champion Remco Evenpoel - and all of the aforementioned quintet would be in the thick of the action on Sunday.  Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss who came out on top and why on a memorable afternoon in Scotland.

S11 Ep103: Caledonia Dreaming

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by one of Belgium’s voices of cycling, TV commentator Renaat Schotte, to preview this weekend’s elite World Championship road race in Scotland.  After the usual news round-up and a summary of the early moves on this year’s transfer market, our thoughts turn to Sunday’s course - and particularly the 14.3km Glasgow city circuit which will decide who inherits Remco Evenepoel’s rainbow bands, or indeed whether The Baby Cannibal can retain his title.  In the last part of the episode, we change pace with some final reflections on the Tour de France - the drama of the yellow jersey battle, what will be our lasting memories of the 2023 edition and other salient talking points.

In 1964, it was the scene of a famous duel between Jacques Anquetil and Raymond Poulidor as the two brushed shoulders in their battle for the yellow jersey. Eleven years later, in 1975, a spectator punched Eddy Merckx which effectively ended the Belgian's long reign as the undisputed best rider in the world. The final visit, in 1988, saw a win by Denmark's Johnny Weltz but after the stage there was chaos with tens of thousands of fans trying to get off the mountain. A funicular railway was installed, narrowing the road and the climb was closed even to amateur cyclists making it very difficult for the Tour to return. But race director, Christian Prudhomme has long harboured a dream to take the Tour back. Even though the climb will be closed to spectators, it promises to be a special day. In this episode we hear from Prudhomme, local rider Remi Cavagna of Soudal-Quick Step, climber Dan Martin and the last man to win on the volcano, Johnny Weltz.

S11 Ep70: Kilometre 0 – Shooting the Tour: Enter the Slipstream

In this episode of Kilometre 0, we speak to three filmmakers who had the tricky task of making a film during the 2020 'Covid' Tour de France. The result is Enter the Slipstream, which debuts on US streaming service Peacock, part of NBC Sports, tomorrow (Saturday, July 1). Lionel Birnie spoke to director Ted Youngs, producer Matt Rogers and story producer Alexis Steinman about the filmmaking process, how Covid changed the story and how Enter the Slipstream is the ultimate tale of perseverance for the riders, the EF Pro Cycling team and the filmmakers themselves. Kilometre 0 at the 2023 Tour de France will be for Friends of the Podcast subscribers.  The next episode will be Laura Meseguer's interview with Joseba Beloki, the Basque rider who finished on the podium at the Tour de France three times and crashed in spectacular fashion on the run-in to Gap on Bastille Day during the 2003 Tour.

S11 Ep69: The XL Tour de France preview

This is our XL Tour de France preview with Lionel Birnie, Daniel Friebe and François Thomazeau – a bumper episode looking ahead to the race, which starts on Saturday. A few days before the grand départ, as the team line-ups and new jerseys are unveiled we look ahead to see what's in store at the biggest race in the world. It's shaping up to be a clash between defending champion Jonas Vingegaard and Tadej Pogačar – who have won the last three editions between them – but is there more to the race for the yellow jersey than that? We weigh up the sprinters and the relatively few opportunities for them to shine and ask the big question – can Mark Cavendish win his 35th stage and claim the outright record? Our Tour de France logo this year features the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the silhouette of the Puy de Dôme, which the Tour will visit for the first time in 35 years. We also hear from Mitch Docker, Ian Boswell and Richard Abraham, who will be joining the podcast team at various points through the Tour. The Cycling Podcast's daily coverage starts on Saturday evening, after stage one, but we are continuing our build-up by kicking off our Kilometre 0 series early. To mark the 10th anniversary of The Cycling Podcast we have created a mini series for Friends of the Podcast called The 100th Tour, 10 years On. It's the story of the 2013 Tour as told by the podcast and it will be released daily as we build up to the start of this year's race in Bilbao. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep68: Richie and Chris: The 100th Tour, 10 years on

Kilometre 0 Richie and Chris kicks off a seven-part mini series focusing on the 2013 Tour de France. To mark the 100th edition of the race, the Tour headed to Corsica for the grand départ. Lionel Birnie spoke to former teammates Chris Froome and Richie Porte about the race. Froome led Team Sky for the first time having been runner-up to Bradley Wiggins the previous year. Wiggins was somewhat controversially – although perhaps not surprisingly – left out of the line-up a few weeks before the start. There was drama from the start. On day one Froome crashed in the neutralised zone before the race had even started, then the Orica-GreenEdge team bus got stuck under the finish line gantry, almost bringing the entire Tour to a standstill. Froome laid down the gauntlet in the Pyrenees when, for 24 hours, everything looked to be going Sky's way. Then there was a date with Mont Ventoux, a double-ascent of Alpe d'Huez and some nervous moments in the final few days. The rest of the series The 100th Tour, 10 years On is the story of that 2013 race as told by The Cycling Podcast. We've delved into our archive to revisit the first Tour the podcast covered. The remaining six episodes will be released for Friends of the Podcast subscribers from Tuesday to Thursday. Our Kilometre 0 series for the 2023 Tour de France will be available to Friends of the Podcast subscribers. Sign up at thecyclingpodcast.com.

S11 Ep67: Steelsy determination

With the SD Worx victory machine still rumbling on at the Tour de Suisse, Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks are faced with a few conundrums. Is Kasia Niewiadoma back to her best? Can SD Worx be beaten on strategy? And most pressingly of all, exactly who has the cutest dog in the peloton?  The Cycling Podcast Féminin team pick over some of the week’s impressive solo performances and hear from rising star Claire Steels who Zubeldia’d her way to sixth on GC. Steels was also involved in one of the crashes at the Tour Féminin des Pyrénées which was eventually called off over safety concerns. We address some of the consternation over the forthcoming Giro Donne and look ahead to the race with Lizzy, our very own two-time stage winner. We also get the perspectives of Urška Žigart of Jayco-Alula, Soraya Paladin of Canyon-SRAM and Erica Magnaldi of UAE-ADQ ahead of the second Grand Tour of the year. Plus we introduce the podcast to a new voice – Denny Gray – who will be joining Rose for our daily podcasts from the Tour de France Femmes next month.

S11 Ep66: Boy Gino – Remembering Gino Mäder

The world of professional cycling was rocked and devastated this week by the death of 26-year-old Bahrain Victorious rider Gino Mäder after a crash in his home race, the Tour de Suisse. The tragedy has completely overshadowed the build-up to the Tour de France - and, in turn, forced a change to our original plan for the episode, namely a review of the new Netflix docuseries, Tour de France: Unchained, after last week’s interview with execuitve producer James Gay-Rees.  You’ll still hear that review, for which we’re joined by another award-winning filmmaker, Finlay Pretsell, but the first part of the show is dedicated to Mäder, his short but already distinguished career and our interactions with one of the most thoughtful and admirable riders in the peloton.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by one of the brains behind what some have already called the event of the cycling season - not Christian Prudhomme or Mauro Vegni but James Gay-Rees, the Oscar-winning executive producer of the hotly anticipated docuseries released on Netflix last week, Tour de France: Unchained.  James lifts the lid on how project was devised, conceived and tweaked, until the thousands of hours of raw footage filmed before, during and after the Tour had been crafted into eight gripping episodes.  Before that, there’s the usual round-up of the week’s news, including a Dauphiné wrap, Arnaud Démare’s Tour snub and the shocking events at the Tour Féminin International des Pyrénées.

As the Critérium du Dauphiné reaches its halfway stage, Lionel Birnie is joined by François Thomazeau and Rob Hatch to discuss what it all means for the build-up to the world's biggest race. Does his stage win mean Julian Alaphilippe is back? Is Jonas Vingegaard emerging as the pre-Tour favourite with Tadej Pogačar on the sidelines recovering from his fractured wrist? We tackle all the big questions from the Tour de France dress rehearsal. We also get a view from the front row as the voice of Radio Tour, Seb Piquet, talks us through the opening few stages.

S11 Ep62: The Reign in Spain

The Cycling Podcast Feminin team are reunited once again following Lizzy Banks’ long anticipated return to racing. Lizzy shares her experience of helping her team to victory at the Joe Martin stage race earlier this month, after overcoming two and a half years of illness and injury. There’s plenty to discuss in the World Tour, where the SD Worx winning streak has continued. Emphatic wins in Itzulia and at the Vuelta a Burgos for Marlen Reusser and Demi Vollering respectively have left the other teams desperately wondering how to beat them. And like the rest of the peloton, the Cycling Podcast Feminin team can’t agree on the best way to go about it either. We also hear from Pfeiffer Georgi who can claim to be one of the few riders in the peloton to have overcome SD Worx at World Tour level this year. The De Panne champion speaks to the podcast fresh from her team’s success at the RideLondon Classique where they took two stage wins and the overall title. Pfeiffer speaks about her progress since her junior racing years and balancing her quiet, calm attitude with being an assertive road captain for Team DSM.

S11 Ep48: Kilometre 0 – Tao in the hunt

In this episode of Kilometre 0 from the Giro d'Italia, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie called Tao Geoghegan Hart at his rest day hotel to get his verdict on the opening nine days of the race. A brilliant time trial by Geoghegan Hart and his Ineos Grenadiers teammate Geraint Thomas kept them at the forefront of the pack stacked up behind leader Remco Evenepoel. And then, on Sunday night, Evenepoel announced he'd be leaving the race having contracted Covid, which puts Thomas in the pink jersey and lifts Geoghegan Hart into third place and raises the possibility of him repeating his 2020 Giro win.

S11 Ep39: Kilometre 0 - Imbroglio! The Big Italian Food Lie

Ask most people to think of Italy and what’s the first image that will come to their mind? For cycling fans it could be the Giro - but, generally, throughout the world, that picture in the mind’s eye is as likely to be of food as it is, say, the national flag, the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Colosseum.  In recent years, it’s been noticeable for journalists on the race that the Giro has leaned further into the notion of Italy as a sort promised land of the finest food and wine on the planet – no longer just ‘the hardest race in the most beautiful place’, per the sales pitch, but also the one where you’ll eat the best meals.  Italian recipes are genuine, humble in origin but luxurious in taste – and also ancient. So at least we’re always told. And yet recently one professor in Italy, Alberto Grandi of the University of Parma, hit the headlines all over the world and caused outrage at home by claiming that a lot of it was lies, mythology, either a misremembering of the past or a deliberate attempt to distort the truth.  In this episode of KM0, Daniel Friebe speaks to, among others, Grandi and John Dickie, the author an acclaimed history of Italian food, Delizia!, to find out what Grandi has claimed and whether, indeed, we’ll ever look at pizza, pasta and cappuccino in the same way again.  In addition to this episode, we’ll also post Daniel’s full interview with Alberto Grandi (with subtitles) on the podcast’s YouTube channel.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep36: Girovagando – The XL Giro d’Italia Preview

On Saturday the Giro d’Italia rolls out of Pescara on the Adriatic coast and, as ever, The Cycling Podcast will be there to document every stage, every polemica and every violation of the sacred codes of Italian gastronomy.  In this episode, Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and Brian Nygaard present our comprehensive preview of the first Grand Tour of 2023: who is riding, where the race is going and – if you’ll indulge our uncharacteristic speculation – who is likely to be in pink when the peloton arrives in Rome.  We hear, too, from our sometime Italian historical and cultural guru, John Foot, about the state of Il Bel Paese in 2023. There are also interviews with one of the men masterminding Remco Evenepoel’s Giro bid, Soudal-Quickstep coach Vasilis Anastopoulos, and the journalist who, whatever happens on the road, will, as ever, be the undisputed crowd favourite of the next month, Ciro Scognamiglio of La Gazzetta dello Sport.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

S11 Ep34: Total Demi-lition

How do you beat SD Worx? That’s the question that Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks are looking to answer in this month’s episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin. With the Spring Classics now at an end and with an Ardennes triple in the bag for Demi Vollering, SD Worx already have 13 victories from four different riders this season. What makes their dominance all the more impressive is the nature of those wins, coming from almost every racing scenario possible. The Cycling Podcast team look then to explore what has made SD Worx almost unbeatable, taking into consideration the tactics, riders and peloton psychology that has secured their winning ways. Of course, special mention is given to Paris-Roubaix, one of the few occasions where SD Worx were beaten. We hear from Lizzy’s day at the race as she followed the action on the cobbles and witnessed first-hand her teammate Alison Jackson take the pavé in spectacular style. We also bring all the latest news from the professional peloton, including the fallout from the mass exodus from the Zaaf Cycling team.

S11 Ep33: Mighty White

It was billed as a clash of the Titans but Liège-Bastogne-Liège turned into the latest episode of the Remco Evenepoel show after Tadej Pogačar’s early crash.  In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by former Liège winner and Pogačar team-mate Dan Martin to reflect on Sunday’s race. We also consider what may be the respective postscripts to La Doyenne - for Evenepoel and his Giro d’Italia bid and Pogačar’s chances of being fit for the Tour de France.  In the final part of the episode, we hear from the newly elected president of the Cyclistes Professionnels Associés, Adam Hansen. We also pay our respects to long-time friend of the pod and ex-Astana press chief Chris Baldwin, who sadly passed away last week.

The spring classics draw to a close with the fourth Monument of the season, Liège-Bastogne-Liège. After a spring dominated by the sport’s biggest names, La Doyenne, the oldest of the Monuments, was shaping up to be a showdown between Tadej Pogačar, winner of the Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race and Flèche Wallonne, and reigning world champion and defending Liège champion, Remco Evenepoel.

SD Worx’s Demi Vollering comes into the race with an Ardennes Classics triple on her mind. But with more teams taking more risks as the Spring season comes to a close, her ascension is anything but a forgone conclusion. Could her closest opponent in fact come from her very own team?

Is it the most predictable race on the calendar, or is there some hidden nuance to the final climb? We discuss how the race panned out and other associated Ardennes trivia before attention turns to the big one, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, on Sunday.

To aid them in an ever more desperate scramble for superlatives to describe Tadej Pogačar’s spring, the boys are joined by AG2R Citroën stalwart Larry Warbasse – who’ll be among those trying to prevent a Pog clean sweep at Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

S11 Ep28: Service Course | Tech Heaven in Hell

This episode of Service Course was recorded on location at the Hell of the North. Join Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley for two breathtaking races at Paris-Roubaix and a closer look at some of the bikes being ridden. The pair hear about the rival adjustable tyre pressure systems being used by Team DSM and Jumbo-Visma at the race, Scope Atmoz and Gravaa Kaps respectively, as well as speaking to the creator of Gravaa Kaps, Gertjan van Ginderen. Despite both DSM and Jumbo-Visma having men’s and women’s teams, disappointingly the systems were absent from the women’s race, and Lizzy finds out exactly why that was. Alongside that there are some other, literal, Easter Eggs, notably the one on John Degenkolb’s top tube, and seemingly an almost complete absence of suspension systems. Peter Sagan was using one, but he also had a gash in his tyre as Lizzy points out to his team before the start. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep27: Like a Mat Out of Hell

As the dust settles on another cobbled Classics season – and some who made it to the Roubaix velodrome on Sunday are still wiping the grit and in one or two cases tears from their eyes –  Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie take a last look back at the Hell of the North in the company of former WorldTour pro and cobblestone connoisseur Mitch Docker. We hear Mitch’s thoughts on another superlative performance by Mathieu van der Poel and also speak to a rider who was making his debut in the race on Sunday – INEOS Grenadiers’ teen marvel Josh Tarling. After that, we take stock after another huge race that concluded last weekend – the Tour of the Basque Country – and look ahead to the second half of the Classics season, starting with Amstel Gold at the weekend.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep24: Men who stare at GOATS

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by long-time contributor François Thomazeau to reflect on Tadej Pogačar’s Tour of Flanders victory at the weekend and look ahead to Paris-Roubaix.  Since Flanders, debate has raged about whether Pog will one day complete cycling’s “Monument Slam”. We discuss how much prestige should in fact be associated with such an achievement - and also revisit a few minor controversies thrown up by Sunday’s race.  After that, it’s time to look forward to “The Hell of the North” and hear about a febrile backdrop of social unrest in France.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep22: Arrivée | Tour of Flanders | men’s race

In our second round of Arrivée podcasts of the 2023 season, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe get together to serve up their hot takes after a memorable edition of the Tour of Flanders.  Could Mathieu van der Poel repeat his Milan-Sanremo heroics and thereby equal the career record of three Flanders wins? Would the home favourite Wout Van Aert finally add his name to the roll of honour of Vlaanderens Mooiste? What if Tadej Pogačar thwarted them both? Sunday afternoon would provide answers - and one the most entertaining races of recent years.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep21: A Perfect Gent

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe are joined by Renaat Schotte, one of the voices of cycling in Belgium, to review a scintillating weekend of Classics racing - and one that reaffirmed Jumbo-Visma’s supremacy ahead of the Tour of Flanders.  We savour an E3 Saxo Bank Classic illuminated by three galáciticos of the pro peloton before going on to discuss an edition of Gent-Wevelgem that will be remembered for its hideous conditions, a stunning performance by one team and a remarkable act of generosity by their leader.  The episode ends on a sombre note as, on the anniversary of Richard Moore’s passing, Lionel and Daniel reflect on the legacy and the void left by their friend, colleague and inspiration.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep20: Whole Lotte Love

This month, The Cycling Podcast Féminin team get what they wished for: a fiercely fought battle between two teammates. Lotte Kopecky and Demi Vollering gunned it out at Strade Bianche with the Dutchwoman eventually crowned the victor after a tense photo finish. Despite being pipped into second, the Italian classic marked yet another chapter in Kopecky’s extraordinary early season in which she has never finished lower than runner-up.  Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks discuss the race and its fallout, including the controversial disqualification of Kristen Faulkner for the wearing of a continuous glucose monitor.  Rose also speaks to Puck Pieterse, one of the unlikely stars of Strade Bianche. Cyclo-cross racer Pieterse finished fifth in her first ever Women’s World Tour road race. She explains her approach to having fun on the bike and why we won’t be seeing her at any more road races this season. The team also talk about a less acrimonious team one-two finish at Trofeo Alfredo Binda. Last month’s interviewee Shirin van Anrooij took the win there, followed by her Trek-Segafredo teammate Elisa Balsamo. Orla closes the show with a beautiful tribute to our deeply missed friend Richard Moore, who passed away a year ago. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, after our on-the-whistle analysis in Arrivée at the weekend, we revisit Milan-Sanremo in the company of Larry Warbasse of AG2r-Citroën, who was in the thick of the action right up until the moment of Mathieu van der Poel’s race-winning attack on the Poggio. Larry takes Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie inside the peloton, dissecting and demystifying the wiles and vagaries of the first Monument of the season. We also hear the latest news from the Remco-Roglič battle in Catalonia - and look ahead to a weekend that signals the true start of the cobbled Classics season.   The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

In this week’s regular episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by former Team CSC and Team Sky press chief and Leopard-Trek manager Brian Nygaard to review the two big WorldTour stage races that concluded at the weekend and look ahead to the first Monument of the 2023 season - Milan-Sanremo.  After the usual weekly news round-up, we discuss the latest Pogcineration of Paris-Nice and the Roglication of Tirreno-Adriatico. What do these two results mean for the Grand Tour season and, in particular, Jonas Vingegaard’s chances of retaining his Tour de France crown? In the final part of the episode, we also look ahead to Milan-Sanremo, by many estimates the most boring Monument of the season and by Daniel’s the best.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep15: Explore | The Midlife Cyclist

This episode of Explore was recorded in March 2022, when Lionel Birnie travelled to Berkshire to meet Phil Cavell. Lionel fitted squarely into the demographic Phil was writing for in his book The Midlife Cyclist and, as one of the people behind Cyclefit, has spent years trying to make riders more comfortable, more efficient and more powerful on the bike. As the years tick by and the likelihood of aches and pains on and off the bike rises, the middle aged cyclist has to pay more attention to their position, their pre- and post-ride regimes and their diet. But getting old does not mean slowing down. In fact, many riders in their 40s and 50s – and even older – are riding better than ever thanks to advances in our understanding of how to keep the body in good condition. Over a coffee Lionel and Phil chatted all things cycling.

S11 Ep14: The Incredulity of Thomas

Lionel Birnie is joined by EF Education-Tibco rider Lizzy Banks and Edward Pickering, the editor of Rouleur magazine, to help see through the dust thrown up by Strade Bianche. Saturday was a day when teamwork came under the microscope. In part one we examine the women’s race which was dominated by two SD Worx riders who had everything worked out except the ending. Demi Vollering seemed as surprised as anyone that her teammate Lotte Kopecky sprinted against her. Then we turn attention to the men’s race, won in exhilarating fashion by Ineos Grenadiers rider Tom Pidcock who attacked almost 50 kilometres from home, overhauled the riders ahead of him and struck out on his own. Although his lead was barely ever more than a minute, and at one stage was down to a handful of seconds, the lack of cohesion in the chase and notably between the two Jumbo-Visma riders undoubtedly played into Pidcock’s hands. In the final part, Lionel checks in with François Thomazeau, for an update on the opening couple of days at Paris-Nice and weighs up the brewing showdown between Tadej Pogačar and Jonas Vingegaard.

S11 Ep13: A Diamond Thief in the Hornets’ Nest

In this week’s regular episode, Daniel Friebe, Lionel Birnie and Rob Hatch of GCN and Eurosport commentary fame reflect on two thrilling days of racing at Opening Weekend in Belgium.  On Saturday, a dominant Jumbo-Visma performance culminated in victory in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad for a rider whose winning moves typically display all the stealth, cunning and deftness of a gemstone heist. This was followed on Sunday by another Jumbo masterclass and success for one of the team’s less prolific yet most versatile stars.  As usual, there’s also a full round-up of the week’s news and we also look ahead to Strade Bianche next weekend.    The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep12: Kool and the Gang

Comebacks, controversy and new rivalries, there’s plenty for Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks to discuss in this month’s episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin. We hear from Charlotte Kool who caused a major upset in taking two stage wins over former teammate and sprinting superstar Lorena Wiebes at the UAE Tour. She tells us what it is like taking on the mantle of leadership in one of the world’s best sprinting teams and going head-to-head against a rider you used to lead out. Newly crowned U23 cyclo-cross world champion Shirin van Anrooij talks to Orla about life at Trek-Segafredo and about enjoying some time off the bike before the Ardennes Classics. Plus we discuss all the main headlines to come out of Setmana Valenciana and the UAE Tour, including the rejuvenation of Ashleigh Moolman and the polemic surrounding Elisa Longo-Borghini’s win on Jebel Hafeet.

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by the young and ambitious chief of the Uno-X men’s and women’s teams, Jens Haugland, to discuss their unlikely journey towards the pinnacle of the sport - the Tour de France.  In a wide-ranging interview, Haugland explains why professional football and the priesthood could have been his alternative career paths - and revisits his team’s very humble beginnings.  Before all of that, we round up the week’s main headlines and zero in on key talking points from the Ruta del Sol and Volta ao Algarve, ahead of Belgium’s Opening Weekend.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep10: The Pog Days Aren’t Over

In this week’s regular episode, Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are joined by former Team Sky and Katusha ace turned gravel-racing maestro Ian Boswell.  After our usual round-up of the week’s news, it’s time to reflect on Tadej Pogačar’s 2023 racing début at the Clásica Jaén Paraíso Interior - and his scintillating victory on the white roads of what has already established itself as Spain’s answer to Strade Bianche.  The Pogcineration on the Andalusian farm tracks is also our cue to quiz Ian about what’s in store for him and the gravel scene generally in 2023. Then, in the last part of the episode, we hear from EF Education First - Easypost’s Esteban Chaves about his recent victory in the Colombian national road race championship and what made it so poignant.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep9: Admirable Lord Neilson & The Battle of Hoogerheide

This week Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie are back and joined by one of the most illustrious and recognisable voices in Belgian cycling, Sporza’s veteran commentator and reporter Renaat Schotte.  After the usual news round-up, we review the action from the cyclocross Worlds in Hoogerheide, where Fem Van Empel and Mathieu van der Poel went double Dutch by taking the women’s and men’s titles respectively.  Defeat for Wout van Aert meant disappointment for Belgium, although spirits there will have been buoyed by the latest evidence of Arnaud De Lie’s prodigious talent at the Étoile de Bessèges. With Renaat’s help, we find out more about a rider who is already being hailed as a Tom Boonen-Philippe Gilbert hybrid.  Neilson Powless took overall victory at Bessèges - and the American would be most people’s choice as the rider of the early season. We hear from the EF Education-Easypost man about his early-season success, why he’ll try his hand at the cobbled Classics and why his Native American ancestry is so important to him, especially when things are going well on the bike.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.  The 11.01 Cappuccino  Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S11 Ep8: Explore | Rubbing shoulders with giants

Explore is about cycling with a sense of adventure, journeying into the unknown and setting off for a challenge not knowing quite what lies ahead. This episode is no exception, although it features a slightly different type of journey. Lionel Birnie talks to American cyclo-cross rider Ben Frederick, who made the trip of a lifetime to Belgium over the Christmas and New Year period. It was his first visit to Europe and he was there to take part in the big festive cyclo-cross races where he rubbed shoulders with Mathieu van der Poel, Wout van Aert and Tom Pidcock. There's nothing especially amazing about that, you might think. After all, Frederick, who is 32, has talent. He was eighth in the US nationals in December and had earned his place on the start grid. But Frederick's sojourn to Flanders was the culmination of an extraordinary journey. A few years ago, an innocuous crash while training on the trails caused a serious concussion. He had to re-learn how to do simple tasks, such as making coffee, and how to read before he could even contemplate getting back on the bike. It was almost two years before he could race again. He set himself a goal – to experience something most cyclists can only dream of. To line up with the stars of modern cycling, the giants of the sport, amid the feverish party atmosphere of a Flandrian Christmas.

S11 Ep7: Inter-stellar Domination

In this week’s episode, Daniel Friebe is joined by Rob Hatch and Lionel Birnie, fresh back from his trip to the GP La Marseillaise for the start of the French season.  We round up a flurry of racing over recent days, including that curtain-raiser in Marseille, and exchange hot takes about what we’ve seen so far in Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Spain. We also reflect in greater detail on an emphatic start to the season by two teams, Intermarché Circus Wanty and Team DSM, with contrasting approaches to rider recruitment in particular.  In the final part of the episode, we ponder the news announced by Peter Sagan last week - that 2023 will be his final campaign in the sport’s biggest races. What was Sagan’s impact, what is his legacy and what chance is there of a Monumental swansong? The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep6: Service Course | The wisdom of Boz

In this episode of Service Course, Tom Whalley speaks to Ian Boswell about the upcoming gravel season, the rule changes made by Unbound, and his plans for a very podcast-y Cape Epic ride partnering Mitch Docker. Boz also talks about his plans to transition from the pointy end of gravel races to the party end at the back. Beyond that, Tom and Lizzy Banks discuss the UCI rule changes for road bikes in 2023, Artificial Intelligence doing us all out of a job, and that Lab 71 bike that no one is confirming the existence of. Turns out there may or may not be one in Lizzy's kitchen. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport. The 11.01 Cappuccino Our regular email newsletter is now on Substack.

S11 Ep5: The Joe & Larry Show, Volume II

After their first appearance to look back on the 2022 season a few weeks ago, we reunite Joe Dombrowski of Astana-Qazaqstan and Larry Warbasse of AG2R Citroën and turn our gaze and thoughts forward to their respective 2023 campaigns.  We ponder their hopes, dreams and fears for the coming campaign, and reflect on a broader question: to what extent is the grunt work that goes into arriving at and staying in peak condition science, and to what extent is it art? At the heart of the discussion are some of the points raised by the trailblazing triathlon coach Olav Aleksander Bu in a recent appearance on the Rich Roll podcast, which you can access here. https://www.richroll.com/all-episodes/ As ever, we also review the week’s main news stories, including the shock non-retirement of Nairo Quintana. Colombian journalist Juan Carlos Berajano joins us to talk about how that plot twist has been greeted back in his and Quintana’s homeland.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep4: The Women's World Tour is back

The Cycling Podcast Feminin kicks off 2023 with a look at the racing that is already in full swing in Australia. Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks discuss the first Women’s World Tour race of the season – the Tour Down Under – which returns to the calendar for the first time since 2020. We also hear from brand new Australian National Champion Brodie Chapman about finally winning the race that kickstarted her cycling career. Back in 2018, Chapman had a full-time office job and was competing in her first ever UCI race when she made the final selection at the National Championships. Her sixth place finish saw her land a pro contract, a move to Europe and even victory in the Sun Tour of Annemiek Van Vleuten. Now she has joined one of the biggest teams in the world, Trek-Segafredo and is looking to both bolster their team of champions as well as pursue some of her own ambitions this year.  Fellow Trek-Segafredo recruit Amanda Spratt also had a stand out performance at the Tour Down Under. Her explosive climbing on stage three left The Cycling Podcast team speculating if she might not be taking a step down from race leadership after all.  Plus we have the latest news from the women’s professional cycling scene including an update on the collapse of the B&B Hotels team and the agreement of a new title sponsor for the former Drops Cycling squad.  The Cycling Podcast Féminin is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep3: Touching the Void or (Down) Under Pressure

The 2023 men’s WorldTour kicked off with the Tour Down Under, and that race features heavily in this week’s regular episode, with our roving reporter on the ground in Adelaide, Mitch Docker, bringing us up to date with the latest action.  Mitch is joined by Daniel Friebe and multiple former Monument and Grand Tour stage winner Dan Martin to also discuss the rest of the week’s news. That includes the announcement that one of the most beloved riders in the pro peloton, Thibaut Pinot, will retire at the end of the 2023 season.  The existential void into which some riders disappear when their career ends is our big discussion point in the second half of the podcast. It is also a poignant one in the week when the former Astana rider, Lieuwe Westra, passed away at the age of just 40, after years of mental turmoil. In the episode we’ll hear about those from Westra’s friend and biographer, Thomas Sijtsma.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep2: Tricky, It’s Greener, Barcelona

After the presentation of the 2023 Vuelta a España route in Barcelona on Tuesday, The Cycling Podcast takes a closer look at the 21 stages that will make up the peloton’s journey from the Catalan capital to Madrid in the summer.  Daniel Friebe is joined by a pair of experts well known for their work on GCN and Eurosport - Rob Hatch and Laura Meseguer. We hear their thoughts on a route whose difficulty either impressed or appalled the riders present in Barcelona on Tuesday - but will happily leave a lighter carbon footprint than last year’s edition, hence the Woody Allen-inspired title of this week’s episode.  There’s also the usual round-up of the week’s main news, including an interview with Allan Peiper. The Aussie is returning to Tadej Pogačar’s side at UAE Team Emirates after a break due to illness.  The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S11 Ep1: Flaming Bora

After our Big Predictions Pod last week, in this episode The Cycling Podcast continues to gaze into the crystal ball by taking a close look at a team that, we suspect, will continue to soar in 2023. That team is Bora-Hansgrohe, and one of the main brains behind their change of focus in recent months is head sports director Rolf Aldag, who joins Daniel Friebe for an in-depth conversation about the new, post-marginal gains age in professional cycling, how Bora-Hansgrohe are attacking it and some of the stars who could glitter in green and black in 2023. Before that, Daniel reviews the week’s news with ace Eurosport commentator Rob Hatch, and we also cross to Scandinavia to hear how Uno-X’s invitation to the Tour de France has been celebrated there.

The Cycling Podcast rings in the New Year by looking ahead to the 2023 season and some of the big storylines that may or may not play out on and off the road. Daniel Friebe is joined by former pro team manager and spin doctor Brian Nygaard and current AG2R Citroën ace Larry Warbasse. Having discussed the main headlines of the festive period, our not-so-clairvoyant trio hears from various other Cycling Podcast regulars, who this week provide their 2023 predictions for our deliberation. Can one nation really win all three Grand Tours in 2023? Or one team? And will the revelation of the next twelve months be a rookie who calls himself “Il Bandito”?

S10 Ep166: Merry Quizmas Everyone!

The Cycling Podcast Féminin's final episode of 2022 sees the return of the Christmas Quiz! But before their competitive sides kick in, Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks share their highlights of the season and are in agreement for once.  In a year when the inaugural Tour de France Femmes put women’s racing in the spotlight, they reminisce over some of the moments that captured their imagination at the race. Among them is the tightly-contested GC battle, Annemiek Van Vleuten’s eventual high mountain domination and getting to witness Marianne Vos – the greatest of all time – in yellow.  Honourable mention also goes to the finale of the Women’s Tour where Elisa Longo Borghini snatched overall victory by one second from Grace Brown, with practically the last pedal stroke of the whole race. The emergence of a potential new rivalry between Annemiek Van Vleuten and Lotte Kopecky also caught the attention, with the pair sharing the spoils across two of the most thrilling races of the year: Strade Bianche and the World Championship road race. The Christmas Quiz returns with Rose setting some devilish questions for Orla and Lizzy, such as how many people did it take to open the winner’s Champagne at Le Samyn? And did someone really win 8kg of dry dog food at the Lotto Belgium Tour? Plus, there's a finishing round of the pun-tastic “Cryptic Criterium” that descends into exasperation as all good Christmas board games should.

S10 Ep165: Team of the Year 2022: Jumbo-Visma

The Cycling Podcast completes its review of the 2022 season by electing our “Team of the Year”. In reality, it wasn't a difficult choice: Jumbo-Visma ruled the roost both in the terms of the quality and quantity of their victories, with Jonas Vingegaard's Tour de France title, Wout van Aert's July tour de force and Tobias Foss's rainbow jersey capping a sensational season. In an extended interview, the team's Managing Director Richard Plugge reminds us of his and their remarkable journey over the past decade, from the brink of oblivion to something akin to what Plugge calls "total cycling". Before that, Daniel Friebe and Rob Hatch discuss the week's big stories, including Astana's sacking of Miguel Ángel López.

S10 Ep164: Service Course | The man in the shadows

In this episode Tom Whalley speaks to Paul Farrell, the founder of Leggera who now designs frames and other items for some of the biggest brands in cycling. His career has seen him live in 55 different countries, with 15 years spent living and working in a carbon factory in China. Prior to that he spent over a decade working in the oil business, during which time he was shot at with bows and arrows. He also survived in the world's worst hovercraft tragedy.

S10 Ep163: Comeback of the Year 2022: Geraint Thomas

The Cycling Podcast continues its review of the 2022 season by electing our “Comeback of the Year”. Egan Bernal and Milan Vader made miraculous recoveries from injuries that looked career-threatening, Jai Hindley successfully banished the memory of a wretched 2021…but it’s Geraint Thomas who takes the laurels thanks mainly to his third place in the Tour de France. Before an extended interview with Thomas, Daniel is joined by Brian Nygaard to review the week's main news stories. We get the latest on B&B Hotels and Mark Cavendish, catch up on track and cyclocross news and also reflect on developments following the tragic death of Davide Rebellin.

S10 Ep162: Kilometre 0 – The cyclist and his shadow

This episode of Kilometre 0 features François Thomazeau talking about The cyclist and his shadow by Olivier Haralambon, which was published by The Cycling Podcast earlier this year. The book is a vivid exploration of what it is to ride a bike by Olivier, a philosopher and former racing cyclist. At the end of the 2020 Tour de France, François described the book – published in its original French as Le coureur et son ombre – as his favourite cycling book, which piqued our interest. François translated the book into English and The Cycling Podcast published it. Reading Olivier's book takes you into the very flesh of bike riding, it leads you straight into the noises, the sights, the smells, the urges involved in leaving the upward position for the stoop in the saddle. But it also takes you into the saddle itself, into the frame and the cogs and even the road, the tarmac, the rain and the sweat. It is more a book to feel than a book to read. – François Thomazeau Click here to buy the book Listeners in the US can buy the American edition published by our friends at Univoval University of Minnesota Press.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, we continue our review of the 2022 season by looking at some of the biggest stories of the last eleven months - and a troubling year for certain sections of the cycling media itself. Daniel Friebe is joined by AG2r-Citroën rider Larry Warbasse and Jeremy Whittle, the co-founder of Procycling Magazine and now The Guardian's Tour de France correspondent.

S10 Ep160: Ride of 2022: Tobias Foss, Worlds TT

The Cycling Podcast continues its review of the 2022 season by electing our “Ride of the Year” - and courting controversy with that selection. You can keep your Remcos at Liège, your Pogs at Strade Bianche, we say - the finest single exploit of the men’s cycling year was Tobias Foss’s giantkilling act in the World TT championship in Wollongong. In this episode, to help account for our choice, Foss himself gives us a forensic description of how he turned an annus mirabilis into an annus…iridis or “rainbow year”. Before that, Daniel is joined by Rob Hatch to review the week's main news stories. We get the latest on Nairo Quintana and Mark Cavendish, catch up on track and cyclocross news and also hear about the sad passing of a titan in the world of anti-doping.

In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy Banks talks to Henry Furniss, who describes his mission as 'enhancing adventure with disruptive techonology'. In 2019, he left WindyMilla, the company he co-founded, and the following year he hinted to Service Course what he planned to do next. Now he can put more flesh on the bones of his new project, which combines two of our favourite things – new materials and 3D printing. Lizzy met Henry on London's Brick Lane during the recent Rouleur Classic. Also in this episode, Lizzy chats to Tom about his production and sound design work on the Tour d'Écosse series for The Cycling Podcast and hints that there are plans for a full equipment and kit debrief with Lionel and Simon – neither of whom could be described as technical experts – in next month's episode.

S10 Ep157: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stages 13-15: Montrose – Peterhead – Elgin – Birnie – Dingwall

The final episode of the Tour d’Écosse series covers the last three stages of the ride to visit each of Scotland’s Football League grounds. Stage 13 of the trip takes Lionel and Simon from Montrose to Peterhead, via Aberdeen and a visit to Slains Castle, which inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula. At 128 kilometres it’s the longest stage of the entire tour too but, fortunately, it's somewhat tailwind-assisted. The following day, however, they battle a fierce headwind on the way to Elgin City’s Borough Briggs, before the last leg takes them from Birnie to Dingwall, the home of the 42nd and final football club on their itinerary, Ross County. This episode also features a chat with Scotland’s Commonwealth Games road race bronze medallist Finn Crockett, who supports Ross County. In total, over 15 days of cycling, they covered more than 1,300 kilometres and spent almost 58 hours in the saddle. The Tour d’Écosse was recorded by Lionel Birnie and Simon Gill. Production and sound design by Tom Whalley. Broomwagon support from Sam Slatter and Jon Heard.

The Angus stage of the Tour d’Écosse takes Lionel Birnie and Simon Gill from Dundee up to Forfar and Brechin before dropping down to the seaside in Arbroath and finally hugging the coastline to Montrose. There are a couple of culinary delights on the way, the Forfar Bridie for brunch and the Arbroath smokies for lunch before heading to watch the Red Lichties, Arbroath, take on East Fife at Gayfield Park, which is apparently the closest football ground in Europe to the sea. It’s a ride of almost 100 kilometres with more than 1,000 metres of climbing through the beautiful Angus countryside.

Join Lionel Birnie and Simon Gill in Freuchie as they recap the first stage of the Tour d’Écosse following their return to Scotland for their journey around the country visiting all the football grounds. First, though, an exploration of Freuchie’s cricketing exploits before they roll through the Lomond Hills to Perth, the home of St Johnstone, and then up to Dundee where the city’s two football clubs play in their own separate grounds that happen to be just across the street from each other.

After just 165 rest days, the Tour d’Écosse resumed in Bonnyrigg in late September for the final stretch of the journey taking in the remaining Scottish Football League grounds. The route director had to re-draw the course over the summer because Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic became the newest members of the Scottish League after winning promotion at Cowdenbeath’s expense in May. And so, instead of picking up where they left off in Alloa in April, Lionel and Simon head to Bonnyrigg, which is just south of Edinburgh for the first of six stages that would take them all the way north to Dingwall. We find out what connects Bonnyrigg to James Bond 007, we cross through the Scottish capital and, with the Netflix Tour de France series currently in production, hear from filmmaker Finlay Pretsell about the challenges of making documentaries about professional cycling. Then it’s over the Forth Road Bridge again – no confusion about how to get across the water this time – picking up a dotwatcher or two on the way, before reaching East Fife.

S10 Ep153: Movers and shakers

In the November episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin, Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks talk transfers. With a number of high profile riders swapping teams, The Cycling Podcast team discuss the mechanics behind the moves and how they might change the face of racing next year.  Drawing particular attention is the official arrival of Zoe Backstedt on to the Women’s World Tour. The 18 year old is the first rider to ever hold four World Championship titles across four different disciplines at the same time. She speaks to Orla about her imperious year and her goals for the forthcoming season when she’ll join Lizzy at EF Education-TIBCO-SVB.  Zoe will not only be racing against her sister Elynor (Trek-Segafredo) next year but will also be looking to beat her dad Magnus too. The former Paris-Roubaix champion will be taking up a place in the Canyon SRAM race car as their new directeur sportif Magnus chats to Orla about his ambitions to steer a competitive and popular Canyon SRAM team towards much needed winning ways.  We also hear from one of Canyon SRAM’s recent departures – Ella Harris – who gives an honest appraisal of her time with the team. The New Zealand rider speaks to Lizzy about her progression from the Zwift Academy and looks to the future with her move to Le Col Wahoo.

All roads lead to Alloa as the first stretch of Tour d'Écosse stages come to a conclusion with a trip to see the Wasps take on Clyde in the shadow of the beautiful Ochil Hills. The roll out is from the site of the West Lothian Cycle Circuit at Linlithgow. Lionel meets Matt Ball, one of the driving forces behind the creation of the circuit about how he hopes it will inspire generations of young cyclists and give riders of all abilities somewhere to meet, ride and race. Then it's a short final stage via Falkirk, Stenhousemuir and Stirling before the last stretch to Alloa in time for kick-off and the pre-match specialty, a Scotch pie on a roll. Yes, you read that correctly – a pie in a bread roll. The Tour d'Écosse resumes next time with the final run of stages taking Lionel and Simon all the way to Dingwall, home of Ross County.

Stage seven of the Tour d’Écosse is as close to the traditional transitional stage as it’s possible to get. The route avoids the Bathgate Alps and takes the low route from Glasgow to Edinburgh. In Lionel and Simon’s defence they have to go via Livingston Football Club’s Tony Macaroni Arena. It’s a beautiful, quiet ride offering time for reflection and reminiscence before they reach the outskirts of the Scottish capital, Edinburgh. Simon visits the Caledonian Brewery before they reach the home of Heart of Midlothian and then it’s on to Hibernian and a glimpse of some Sunshine on Leith.

We’re still in Glasgow, and this is the big one, the Queen Stage of the Tour d’Écosse with seven current Scottish Football League grounds on the route, plus a couple of wild cards. Lionel and Simon drop in on Cathkin Park, the so-called ‘ghost ground’ and former home to the long defunct Third Lanark club. There are stops at Hampden Park, home of the Tartan Army, Parkhead – or Paradise to give it another name – Cumbernauld and Airdrie, the club with two second names Albion Rovers, Hamilton Academical and Motherwell. We also explore the sectarian divide which splits the city with Kenny Pryde. The eyes of the cycling world will be on Glasgow, and other parts of the country as Scotland takes centre stage in August 2023 as hosts of the UCI World Championships. The first ‘Super Worlds’ as Lionel calls it, will see 190 rainbow jerseys awarded across multiple cycling disciplines. But what will the World Championships mean for the future of Scottish Cycling? We hear from Jimmy McCallum and Peter Ellen of The Cycling Academy about the work to create the champions of tomorrow. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S10 Ep147: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 5, part two: Dumbarton – Partick

We rejoin the Tour d’Écosse story midway through stage five, just as Lionel and Simon are about to cross back over the River Clyde and head into Glasgow. Has Simon got any cash for the ferry crossing? Will the rain dampen their spirits before they reach Partick? And most importantly what's for dinner in Glasgow? There are three more football grounds to visit, at St Mirren, Rangers and Partick Thistle, plus a visit to the cricket ground that hosted the world’s first football international match 150 years ago. We hear from Simon Inglis, the author and authority on football ground construction, about how the work of Glasgow-born architect and engineer Archibald Leitch shaped the way we watch the sport today. His stadium designs dominated football during its boom period at the beginning of the 20th Century and one of the finest surviving examples of his work is at Ibrox, home of Rangers. Then we catch up with Kenny Pryde, whose byline filled cycling magazines in the late 1980s and 1990s when Lionel was getting heavily into professional cycling and who later became a colleague. Kenny talks about the experience of covering Robert Millar’s career. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Supersapiens and Science in Sport.

S10 Ep146: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 5, part one: Port Glasgow – Dumbarton

With the rain hammering on the windows of their Clydeside loft apartment, Lionel and Simon decide to sit tight round the large dining table drinking coffee and eating porridge until the weather improves. There's the Killie Pie taste test, talk of Simon's phobia of big spoons, and then discussion of his previous exploits on two wheels. Simon has ridden from Lands' End to John o' Groats, from Tring to Tromsø and tackled the Transatlantic Way in Ireland so he's much more experienced than Lionel at long-distance, self-supported cycling. Finally, they can delay their departure no longer and the get on the road to Dumbarton via the Forth and Clyde canal. Dumbarton Football Club have a resident poet, Stephen Watt, who tells Lionel about the town and performs a poem he's written specially for The Cycling Podcast.

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast we discuss the burning issues of the week and continue to revisit some of the main themes and topics of the 2022 season. Daniel Friebe is joined by Brian Nygaard and veteran Sporza reporter and commentator, Renaat Schotte. Renaat explains why 2022 was a vintage one for Belgian cycling - and also tries, for the second time in recent years, to open Daniel's eyes to allure of cyclocross.

S10 Ep144: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 4: Ayr – Greenock

The Tour d'Écosse picks up where it left off, in Ayr, or more to the point in a pub in Ayr where Lionel and Simon have just ordered a dessert pizza that would horrify Ciro Scognamiglio and, for that matter, all Italians. Then it's back on the road, past the golf courses that decorate the Ayrshire coast, on the roads that made the Girvan one of the toughest stage races in Britain, and via an extraordinary – if brief – Elvis impression by Simon. We also talk Graeme Obree with Edward Pickering, author of the book The Race Against Time, and get our first glimpse of the Clyde as we arrive at Greenock Morton FC.

S10 Ep143: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 3: Stranraer – Ayr

This is the Robert Burns stage, as Lionel and Simon head from Stranraer to Ayr to the Scottish poet's home town. The town's football team, Ayr United, are nicknamed the Honest Men – a reference to a line in one of Burns's most famous poems, Tam o' Shanter. They're getting into their stride now, tackling the second of three consecutive stages of almost 100 kilometres. It's a day that focuses on the cycling, the glorious Scottish countryside, the nature of friendship, grief and cycling's role in the healing process. There's also fuelling tips and psychological tricks from Lizzy Banks, and a poetry reading from Sir Chris Hoy to round off the episode.

The clock is ticking today because Lionel and Simon want to make it to Stranraer's Stair Park ground in time for 3pm when the home side kick-off their match against visitors Forfar Athletic.

S10 Ep141: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 1: Gretna – Castle Douglas

This is the Tour d'Écosse take two. Lionel Birnie and Simon Gill return to Gretna, the first town visitors to Scotland reach after crossing the border from north west England, to finally get their ride underway. Starting from Gretna's Raydale Park ground, it's a ride of just over 75 kilometres to Castle Douglas. They tick off the first two football grounds – Annan Athletic's Galabank and Palmerston Park, the home of Queen of the South. Lionel sets out alone because Simon has some last-minute mechanical issues that require professional assistance. On the way, they meet Giancarlo Rinaldi who explains the history of Scotland's Italian immigrants and that the bicycle was invented in Dumfries, and Lionel proves to be quite handy at curling... although Simon insists it's just beginner's luck.

S10 Ep140: Explore | Tour d'Écosse prologue: Gretna 2021

Explore returns with the Tour d'Écosse, a multi-part series telling the story of the beautiful game on two wheels. It was an idea dreamed up by Lionel Birnie and Simon Gill during lockdown, inspired by their childhood passions of cycling and football. The plan was to ride from Gretna to Dingwall visiting all 42 of the Scottish Football League grounds on the way. There are so many questions to answer... Will Lionel and Simon make it to Forfar without falling out? Why are Cowdenbeath called The Blue Brazil? What actually is Irn Bru? And do Lionel's ancestors really hail from Birnie? This episode is a prologue, of sorts. Lionel and Simon headed to Gretna in June 2021 ready to set off on their adventure but, as you'll hear, it turned out to be something of a false start...
