December 8 | In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, we join Brian Holm for pie and mash in London. The former Danish national champion has had an eventful career – he nearly died in a crash when he was a young professional, he won the Paris-Brussels one-day classic and he rode for the German Telekem team, helping his team-mate Bjarne Riis to win the 1996 Tour de France. Like Riis, Holm doped, and later confessed. As sports director for Mark Cavendish's HTC-Columbia team and now Quick Step...

The Cycling Podcast this week is devoted this week to the 2018 Giro d'Italia, with the route for the 101st race unveiled on Wednesday. We discuss the route and Chris Froome's decision to try to win his first Giro before going for his fifth Tour de France. It was already known that the Giro would start in Israel, becoming the first grand tour to start outside Europe, but already this is generating controversy and headaches for RCS, the Giro organisers. We hear different viewpoints on the...

November 22 | Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe meet up in central London after their sell-out West End show at the Arts Theatre to discuss the latest training camp and team building trends. The Australian Orica-Scott team plan to break with established training camp tradition by moving hotels each night, making it more like a stage race, rather than spending time at one base. While it might break with the routine and give the riders a change of scenery every day, will it be...

November 14 | During the Vuelta a España Orla Chennaoui went to Herne Hill velodrome to meet Ned Boulting, who races on the track throughout the year.

The Vuelta a España concluded with its traditional stage into Madrid – a time to enjoy a glass of something fizzy to toast three weeks on the road. Alberto Contador, completing his final race as a professional, was given the honour of riding ahead of the peloton as they reached the circuit in Madrid. But the racing soon hotted up as Chris Froome, who has become the first rider to do the Tour de France-Vuelta double since the Vuelta moved to its late summer spot made it clear he also had his...

Stage 20 | Corvera de Asturias | Alto de l’Angliru | Vuelta a España 2017

9/9/2017
More
The Angliru had all the ingredients to create an epic stage to decide the Vuelta a España. Epic is an over-used word in professional cycling but in this case it applied. The steep gradient, the long climb and the miserable weather made it a test that would add an element of risk to proceedings. In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel Birnie and Fran Reyes have their own battle to the top of the Angliru. Once there, they report on Alberto Contador’s final victory as a professional, and...

The Vuelta a España headed deep into the Cantabrian countryside and at last a breakaway was given a big advantage so they could fight for the stage. A group of 20 got clear and as the end approached, five men broke away. It was eventually Sander Armée of Lotto-Soudal who got the better of Julian Alaphilippe and Alexey Lutsenko – both stage winners earlier in this Vuelta – to give his team their third victory of the race. Behind them, Fabio Aru went on the attack, almost as if to prove a...

In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Lionel Birnie, Daniel Friebe and Fran Reyes are at the top of the climb having completed their won battle with the steep, rough, partially-concrete road, albeit with four wheels rather than two.
