episode 43: Press Conference | Giro d’Italia 2022


It’s the rest day and Daniel Friebe and Lionel Birnie have been in Abruzzo staying at a vineyard with a pair of jacuzzi pools in the garden.
Rest assured, the press conference episode was not recorded in the jacuzzi.

We left the story of the 2012 Giro d'Italia on the eve of the Stelvio stage on the penultimate day of the race with the destiny of the maglia rosa still delicately poised.

Ryder Hesjedal had trimmed Joaquim Rodriguez's lead at Alpe de Pampeago and just needed to keep the Spaniard on a leash to stand a great chance of becoming the first Canadian grand tour winner in the final time trial in Milan...

episode 38: Kilometre 0 – The duel, part 1


This is the tenth anniversary of one of the closest grand tours of all-time, decided by just 16 seconds after a two-week tussle between two very different riders.

The Canadian Ryder Hesjedal and the Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez took turns wearing the maglia roas as if they were playing a game of pass the parcel. It was an intriguing clash of styles too – the patient diesel versus the jack-in-the-box...

Lionel joins Daniel Friebe to discuss stage five which, as expected, went the way of the sprinters – although it wasn’t without drama along the way...
