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 184: Women’s Tour 2021: Stage 4 – Shoeburyness to Southend-on-Sea

It’s another packed podcast from the Women’s Tour. Join Rose Manley, Lionel Birnie and Lizzy Banks at the famous Rossi’s ice cream parlour on the seafront in Southend-on-Sea as they recap stage four.
The stage was won by Lorena Wiebes of Team DSM and we hear her finish line reaction and get the thoughts of sports director Albert Timmer.
Lizzy checked out the course, we hear reaction from the riders after a fast, furious run-in, and in the final part we ask race director Mick Bennett why there is no live coverage of the race – something that is a World Tour requirement. Lizzy also gives her thoughts on the fact fans cannot watch the race as it unfolds.
Finally, we learn about Southend and a debate rages about ice cream flavours.
