In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley take a deep dive into the world of online cycling, something that we've all become even more accustomed to over the last 12 months thanks to a global pandemic. Tom speaks to Zwift's lead game designer Wes Salmon, Hustle City creator Marcus Cheek, cyclist and CEO of Die Gute Fabrik Hannah Nicklin, Mike Rose from No More Robots, and Stuart Ruecroft. If you played Milk Race on your Spectrum or Commodore 64 in the 1980s then you'll have seen some of Stuart's work. In the episode Tom asks how platforms such as Zwift have been so successful in combining the language of cycling with that of video games. Tom also peaks into the future to see what new platforms are emerging, platforms such as SOL cycling and Hustle City, and looks at how they are going to utilise your smart turbo trainer to create new ways to enjoy online cycling. Plus Lizzy takes a look at a sub-5kg disc-brake bike build. Service Course by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

The 2021 World Tour season is underway with the UAE Tour and in this episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the opening three days of racing in the dessert. There was a stage win for Mathieu van der Poel before his Alpecin-Fenix team had to withdraw after a staff member tested positive for Covid-19. As expected, Filippo Ganna won the time trial with Tour de France champion Tadej Pogacar taking the leader's jersey before strengthening his position by winning the stage to Jabel Hafeet ahead of Adam Yates. But what colour is the leader's jersey? That's the burning question posed by Daniel. We also discuss the curious case of Marc Hirschi's transfer and the NDA and in the final part there's a subject that is sure to divide people. No, not Slow Radio (although there is that too), but an look at the impact Brexit is having on the careers of British cyclists, and particularly young riders, now freedom of movement is no longer a right for UK citizens.

This is the first ten minutes of an episode that's just been released for Friends of the Podcast called A Team Apart. It's a study of a team that punched above its weight last season, Team Sunweb. They won three Tour de France stages, Flèche Wallonne, Paris-Tours and nearly the Giro d'Italia too. A new sponsor DSM has perhaps given the team greater security, considering Sunweb is in the fragile holiday market, although the team lost its new star, Marc Hirschi on the eve of the season. This episode gets under the skin of how the team often shuns the conventional approach. To sign up as a Friend of the Podcast go to http://thecyclingpodcast.com/friends

This episode of The Cycling Podcast starts with the most significant corrections corner ever following Daniel's assertion last week that Ineos Grenadiers rider Pavel Sivakov had climbed the equivalent of the distance to the moon... We also discuss the early races of the season, the big stories in the news and look ahead to Chris Froome's debut for his new team, Israel Start-Up Nation. Can he win a fifth Tour de France after his long recovery from injury? Or will age and the emergence of so many other grand tour contenders count against him. We also hear from Doug Ryder, the boss of the Qhubeka-Assos team which nearly collapsed at the end of last year. Having saved the team from extinction he was celebrating at the weekend as Giacomo Nizzolo got their first victory of the season at the Clasica Almeria.

I was travelling back to Girona from the first team training near Marseille at the start of the year with our trainer Nate Wilson and I was asking him a whole bunch of questions about coaching and it suddenly struck me that the conversation we were having would make a great a great podcast. So I got my recorder out of my backpack and asked Nate about his methods and philosophy but also the mental side of a relationship between a coach and an athlete. Nate is a young guy – younger than some of the athletes he coaches – and he's raced at a good amateur level himself so I was really interested to know if there are any differences between coaching a keen amateur who wants to get the best out of themselves and a pro rider whose living depends on their performance. It made me think about my own training and relationship with my coach as well, so I hope that you take something interesting from it no matter what level of riding you do. I've got a block of back-to-back racing coming up which I'm really looking forward to. I'm back to the south of France to race Haut Var this weekend, then it's up to Belgium for Opening Weekend and then I'll be at Strade Bianche again, which I'm really looking forward to. Listen out for Talking Luft with Nate over on the original Life in the Peloton feed next week and I'll be back with another episode here on The Cycling Podcast in a couple of weeks. Hope you all enjoy the pod.

The first episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin of 2021 includes a report from the new Jumbo-Visma women's team training camp in Alicante and a conversation with Ella Harris, the Canyon-SRAM rider, from her home in New Zealand. With Rose Manley taking over in the host's chair, and Orla Chennaoui and Richard Moore in domestique roles, there's a fresh look and sound to the monthly podcast that focuses on women's racing. We hear from Nancy van der Burg, who has gone from nutritionist to the Jumbo-Visma WorldTour team to professional rider with the new women's team in two years. There's also a new, as yet unnamed feature: a quick fire Q&A with a rider. Marjolein Van 't Geloof of Drops-Le Col, supported by Tempur, is the first victim.

In this episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the Ineos Grenadiers strategy for this season's three grand tours. With Geraint Thomas, Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz and Tao Geoghegan Hart in their squad they have four grand tour champions to divide between three races – and that's before considering the ambitions of Pavel Sivakov, Adam Yates and others. So how will they manage it? And will Dave Brailsford's suggestion that he wants his team to rip up the established tactical handbook and race more freely be possible? Can they 'prepare like Germany, play like Brazil' as he put it? We also discuss the latest UCI rule changes which bans the so-called 'super tuck' descending position and seriously increases fines for littering.

It's a bit of a departure from the norm this week because my guest is Jack Thompson – aka Jack Ultra – who is not a professional cyclist but whose adventures on two wheels have demonstrated to me the power of the bike. When I first heard about the type of riding Jack does I was impressed by the sheer scale of the targets he sets himself. From Everesting three mountains, one in Italy, one in France, one in Spain, back to back to attempting to ride further in a week than anyone else has done, these solo rides are very different to the shoulder-to-shoulder intensity of life in the pro peloton. And yet I thought there'd be some similarities and when I learned that for Jack cycling is something of a therapeutic pursuit for him I was fascinated to find out more about him and why he does what he does. I hope you enjoy the episode. Cheers, Mitch.

6: Duel in the sand

2021-02-0301:04:461

Road racing is back with the traditional curtain-raiser to the European season, the Grand Prix La Marseillaise, taking place in the south of France on Sunday. In this episode we assess the latest instalment in the ongoing duel between Wout van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel. It's a rivalry that spans the mud (and sand) of cyclo-cross, the cobbles and hills of the Classics and could flare up in the heat of July at the Tour de France this year. Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the significance of this latest showdown and whether sand has any place in cycling...

In this episode of Service Course Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley look at the latest trends in cyclocross bikes. With riders like Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert tearing things up both on the road and in the mud, they ask whether the two disciplines of road and cx are now having much more of an influence on each other. Lizzy speaks to Anna Kay, one of the most promising young CX riders out there, and Tom chats to the team from Canyon about the new look Inflite, the bike ridden by the defending CX world champions Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado and Mathieu van der Poel. The 2021 road season is also upon us, and so Lizzy and Tom take a look at some of the new tech in the peloton, with Lizzy doing some top level sleuthing on the roads around Girona.

4: Dumoulin hits pause

2021-01-2701:10:491

The cycling world has been rocked by the decision of one of the sport’s stars, Tom Dumoulin, to hit the pause button on his career. The Dutchman is taking time out, with the blessing of his team, Jumbo-Visma, to decide whether he wants to continue or not. The news broke 24 hours after the release of last week’s episode, a special with Jumbo-Visma from their training camp in Spain, including an interview with Dumoulin in which he discussed his goals for 2021. What led to the decision, and what are the chances of Dumoulin returning? Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the 2017 Giro d’Italia winner’s decision and share their memories of a rider who is elegant on the bike and charming off it.

This week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast comes from the Team Jumbo-Visma training camp in Alicante, Spain. Richard Moore and Orla Chennaoui spent a few days with the world’s number one ranked team as they prepared for and looked ahead to the 2021 season. We hear from Marianne Vos, who will lead the new women’s team, Wout van Aert, Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk, Sepp Kuss, Tobias Foss and Primoz Roglic, as well as team boss Richard Plugge and sporting director Merijn Zeeman. Van Aert explains why he has agreed to three more years with the team, Dumoulin discusses his Classics ambitions, and we hear who will lead Jumbo-Visma at the three Grand Tours.  We also look back on 2020 and a Tour de France that looked to be theirs until Roglic’s defeat to Tadej Pogacar on the penultimate day. What happened at La Planche des Belles Filles, did Jumbo-Visma make any mistakes over the three weeks of a Tour in which they were the strongest team, and how can they try and ensure it doesn’t happen again?  The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca and Science in Sport For 25% off all your Science in Sport products go to http://scienceinsport.com and enter the code SISCP25 at the checkout This episode is sponsored by Babbel, the language learning app. With Babbel you can choose from 14 different languages, including, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

It's great to be back for another season of Life in the Peloton and for my first episode of the new year I caught up with someone I've been wanting to get on the pod for a long time. It's the German Aussie Heinrich Haussler. Even though I've known him a long time, there were so many things I wanted to talk to Heino about. For a start, is he German or is he Australian? He won the Aussie champs and has ridden for Australia but he moved to Germany in his early teens and much of his development in cycling was thanks to the German system. We also talked about some of his biggest wins, particularly his stage win in the 2009 Tour de France and towards the end of the pod I asked him why, in his mid-30s, he's started racing cyclo-cross. This is the first podcast of 2021 and the plan is very much the same as last year. Life in the Peloton will be released fortnightly here on The Cycling Podcast feed and in between there'll be an episode of Talking Luft over on the original Life in the Peloton feed. If you missed any of last year's episodes and need to catch up, there's a link to the 2020 playlist below. In the meantime, sit back and listen to Heino and I hope you enjoy it.

What does 2021 have in store? In this first episode of the new year Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe gaze into their crystal ball, and we hear from François Thomazeau, Ian Boswell, Lizzy Banks, Ciro Scognamiglio, Mitch Docker, Harry Tanfield and Ben Lowe of VeloViewer, with their predictions for the upcoming cycling season. Will young riders continue to dominate, or will the oldies have their revenge? Will ultra-narrow handlebars begin to proliferate in the professional peloton, and – less likely – will Daniel get his wish and see crosswinds “banned”? There’s also an interview with Hugh Carthy, looking back on his third place at last year’s Vuelta a España and ahead to a new season in which he is looking forward to an enhanced role at his team, EF Education-Nippo.

203: Strictly Amaraterra

2020-12-2301:02:15

Since 2016, when The Cycling Podcast first covered the Giro d'Italia on the ground, the soundtrack has been provided by Amaraterra, a London-based band that plays the southern Italian pizzica music. They were in the news recently after it was reported that a Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show offered a free lunch rather than a payment to perform. It was a story that provoked a big response from many of our listeners, for whom Amaraterra's music has become synonymous with the Giro and Italy.  In this bonus episode we enjoy the music of Amaraterra and speak to three members of the band, Alfredo Gianni, Mark Glanville and Cassandre Balosso-Bardin, as they tell us about some of the tracks that accompany our Giro coverage.  It is a challenging time for those who work in the performing arts. Denied the chance to perform live – as they have been doing at least once a month since 2012 – Amaraterra have had a difficult year. In this episode there are also details about how to support the band as they try to finish their first full-length album: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/malvasia-amaraterra-s-first-full-length-album/x/25413806#/ The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca (https://www.iwoca.co.uk/) and Science in Sport (https://www.scienceinsport.com/) .

This episode of Explore, introduced by Lionel Birnie and Hannah Troop, features a man who was a fixture on British children's television in the late 1980s and 1990s – Timmy Mallett. The host of Wacaday, the Wide Awake Club and Mallett's Mallet, Timmy was never seen without his trademark colourful glasses and trusty sidekick, a large foam mallett. In 2018, he rode the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela and he wrote about the very personal reason for making the trip in his book Utterly Brilliant, which is part travelogue, part memoir. Lionel caught up with him to ask him about his journey, what cycling means to him and why his brother Martin was one of the biggest inspirations in his life.

Hi Mitch! Firstly thanks for great podcast! I am Listening it since the Orica times. When you had a proper mullet :) You are saying that next pody is the last one and a special on? My sixth sense is saying that you will open a mystery box of Primož Roglič and showing the world that he is not so quiet one :) Keep up a good work! And come to Slovenia for a bit of great Cycling, ask Mezza about it ;)

Hey Mitch, just one reason why people set the difficulty to zero is for racing. With no gradient simulation, the race is a flat road, so you don't get hit by gear changes and/or fatigue from climbing

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.
