episode 35: Life in the Peloton – Tom Pidcock

This week's guest is a young man who has made a big splash in his first couple of months racing in the World Tour.

I knew the name Tom Pidcock because he's been racing on the coat tails of Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert in cyclo-cross for a couple of winters now, but I'd never actually met him or spoken to him before.

But when I got a message to say Tom would love to come on the podcast I was really keen to find out more about a man whose reputation preceded him...

If ever a rider was built for Paris-Roubaix it was Magnus Bäckstedt. Since turning professional and seeing the cobblestones for the first time, he dreamed of conquering the Hell of the North.

But, like the journey from Compiègne to the velodrome, Bäckstedt's journey was far from smooth...

The latest episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin focuses on the Tour of Flanders and Ghent-Wevelgem with interviews with Elisa Longo Borghini, Anna Henderson, Demi Vollering, Lotte Kopecky and Grace Brown.

Orla Chennaoui, Rose Manley and Richard Moore discuss how the races were won and we also have a long interview with a new name, Kristen Faulkner.

Faulkner has a remarkable story: she grew up in Alaska, is a Harvard graduate, and was a venture capitalist until January...



episode 32: The Great Dane of Flanders

Richard Moore heads to Oudenaarde for the Tour of Flanders and then reviews the men's race with Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe.

The biggest question pre-race was whether Deceuninck, sorry, Elegant-Quick-Step could topple defending champion Mathieu van der Poel and his big rival Wout van Aert.

And the answer was, yes, thanks to another brilliant display by their Great Dane, Kasper Asgreen...



episode 31: Life in the Peloton – Belgian cobbled Classics with Luke Durbridge

The cobbled Classics in Belgium are such an exciting time of year and it's become a tradition for me to check in with my good buddy Luke Durbridge to talk about what makes these races so special.

Luke is up in Belgium at the moment and has been riding all the Classics that lead up to the big one on Sunday – the Tour of Flanders – and Paris-Roubaix just over the border in France a week later...



episode 30: Trailer: Supersonic: The Marcus Christie Story

This is a trailer of a new episode for Friends of the Podcast. To listen to the full episode sign up at

The path to a career as a professional cyclist is a road less travelled and also a notoriously gruelling one. For many, moreover, it can become a search for the self, the pursuit of an identity, which raises the stakes way beyond the promise or reality of whatever material rewards come with success...



episode 29: Who's afraid of the big bad Wolfpack?

In this episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe discuss the week's racing in Belgium and Catalonia.

First, the cobbled Classics where Deceuninck-Quick Step got off to a flyer with victory for Sam Bennett at the Oxyclean Brugge-De Panne Classic before winning the numbers game at the E3 Saxo Bank Classic, where Kasper Asgreen got the better of everyone, including Mathieu Van der Poel and Wout Van Aert.

On Sunday, though, Van Aert bounced back to win Gent-Wevelgem...

Ian talks about his continuing recovery from the concussions that forced his early retirement, and gives his reaction to the way the new concussion protocols are impacting racing this season. On the new tech side of things Tom speaks with Chris Blomfield-Brown from CORE about their new core temperature sensor, which is being used by a number of men's and women's teams this year...
