Join journalists Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe – and a few special guests along the way – as they podcast about the latest cycling news and the world of professional cycling. Expect a mix of insight and analysis as our three experienced journalists cover not just the big talking points but take you behind the scenes of professional cycling. Richard Moore is the author of Slaying the Badger and Sky’s the Limit, Daniel Friebe writes for Procycling and is author of The Cannibal, a biography of five-time Tour winner Eddy Merckx, and Lionel Birnie is co-editor of The Cycling Anthology, a collection of essays about the Tour de France.


episode 16: Opening Weekend

In this week’s episode Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe review opening weekend in Flanders and the first cobbled classics of the spring, Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne on Sunday.
We hear from Jake Stewart, the 21-year-old from Coventry who was second at Het Nieuwsblad – the youngest podium finisher since Eddy Merckx in 1966 – and rides for the French team, Groupama-FDJ.
We also look ahead to Paris-Nice and speak to Matteo Jorgenson, an American who rides for Movistar: another 21-year-old tipped for great things. And we hear from Laura Meseguer about El Cycling Podcast, our new Spanish-language podcast.
