One of the stories of the season has been Jakob Fuglsang’s transformation from nearly man to winner. His crowning glory came at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, which the Dane won alone, but he has been, along with Julian Alaphilippe, the most consistent rider of 2019. In this episode we speak to Fuglsang about his improvement and hear from his Astana sports director, Lars Michaelsen, his fellow Dane Chris Juul-Jensen, good friend and former teammate Andy Schleck and Danish journalist Brian Askvig of Ekstra Bladet. Kilometre 0 by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Hansgrohe

Fifteen years ago there were only one or two pro cycling teams that had press officers. Nowadays, they all have at least one and the job has changed enormously. In this episode of Kilometre 0 we hear from the communications directors and attachés de presse Taryn Kirby of Mitchelton-Scott, Hannah Troop of EF-Education First, Ralph Scherzer of Bora-Hansgrohe, Amy Cameron of CCC and Elisa Madiot of Groupama-FDJ. Kilometre 0 by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Hansgrohe
With the rest day just 24 hours away, the peloton could have been forgiven for wanting a quiet day.No such luck for them because crosswinds in the final couple of hours of racing caused chaos and left several riders counting the cost of being caught out.Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau as they pick over the results and sort the winners from the losers.Why were several of the overall contenders caught out? How did Team Ineos manage to come out of it on the front foot again? What was George Bennett doing going back for bottles at the crucial moment? We discuss this and much more.The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.OUR SPONSORSRapha has launched its new custom kit giving you the chance to design your own Rapha kit.

This is the second part of our conversation with sports journalist David Walsh about the 1999 Tour de France, which was won by Lance Armstrong. The Texan was dogged by questions about doping once it emerged he had tested positive for a corticosteroid and produced a TUE form for it, which turned out to have been back-dated.Kilometre 0 is supported by Hansgrohe showers and taps.
It’s Bastille Day in France - or as François reminds us, Le 14 Juillet, because no one calls it Bastille Day but there was to be no French stage winner in the Tour de France.Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau recap the ninth stage, won by the South African Daryl Impey.We also hear from another rider outside his team bus and from Team Ineos doctor Richard Usher and the surgeon who operated on Chris Froome after the four-time Tour winner crashed heavily at the Critérium du Dauphiné last month.The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.
After a snoozy stage on Friday, the Tour de France burst back into life with a barnstorming stage from Mâcon to St Etienne.Join Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and François Thomazeau at their hotel – which they are sharing with the CCC, UAE Team Emirates, Sunweb and Cofidis teams – as they unpick a fascinating day’s racing.The stage was won by Thomas De Gendt in sensational fashion but behind them Julian Alaphilippe seized the initiative and took back the yellow jersey while Thibaut Pinot gained some time that might turn out to be important.Tune in for the usual mix of interviews and analysis, another episode of Outside the Team Bus with our first Pédaleur de Charme of the Tour, and a difference of opinion between Lionel and François regarding the way Pinot has attacked the first week of the race.The Cycling Podcast is supported by Rapha and Science In Sport.

For some reason I can no longer replay episodes I have already listened to. Is anyone experiencing the same thing?

I listened to Sherwen and Liggett because my Dad did when he watched the TdF. My Dad had a Flying Scot bike and I inherited my love of TdF because of him and P&P’s commentary. I honour my Dad’s memory by watching the TdF and it will never be the same without the two Ps’ travelogue.

Probably the best sports podcast I listen too and cycling isn't my number one sport. Richard, Daniel and Lionel are a great combination with news, features and humour in the right measure. Full daily episodes of all grand tours too. Excellent podcast.
