episode 194: Life in the Peloton – Svein Tuft turns the mic on Mitch

In the final episode of the Life in the Peloton for this year, Mitch Docker is back on the other side of the mic with his friend and former Orica-Scott teammate Svein Tuft asking the questions.

Find out about Mitch's school days and how he completed a year's worth of art coursework in a couple of days, his early racing days and how he got started on the road to the World Tour with the Drapac development team.

We started working with Mitch at the start of the year, when Lionel Birnie interviewed him outside a busy bar in Girona for The Cycling Podcast. That episode can be found here and together with this one provide the perfect bookends to the season.

We're delighted to confirm that Life in the Peloton will return to The Cycling Podcast in 2021.

Theme music
The theme music for Life in the Peloton was composed by Pete Shelley, who was lead singer of the punk band Buzzcocks. It was commissioned by the production company behind Channel 4’s coverage of the Tour de France in the 1980s and was used as the theme music for the nightly highlights show. Pete died in December 2018. We were given permission by Pete’s widow and his manager to continue using the music for the theme tune to Life in the Peloton. To hear more about the music, listen to the Andre Greipel episode of Life in the Peloton.
