    8: Service Course | Episode 7 | Gold Medal Machine?

    In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley take a close look at the new HB.T track bike that Team GB will be riding at the Olympics in Tokyo. A collaboration between Hope Technology and Lotus Engineering, the bike’s striking looks are certain to divide opinion. To find out more about the design, Lizzy spoke with Tony Purnell, the head of development at British Cycling. He believes that, in a few years time, we will see road bikes emulating the design of the HB.T
    We also hear from Lizzy’s Bigla - Katusha teammate Martina Alzini, who is part of a very exciting, Italian team pursuit squad. Martina talks about the beautiful new Pinarello that the Italians will be riding in Tokyo, and gives her thoughts on GB’s new machine.

    Welcome to The Cycling Podcast presents Life in the Peloton with Mitch Docker.
    We're delighted to welcome Mitch to the team for 2020 and ahead of the release of his first new episode on January 29 we thought we'd delve into his back catalogue to present six edited versions of some of his greatest hits.
    Mitch's friend and former teammate Luke Durbridge is a regular guest on Life in the Peloton and, as you'd expect, the pair have a great rapport.
    Life in the Peloton comes to The Cycling Podcast's channel in 2020 with the first 'new' episode featuring EF Education First rider Jimmy Whelan. If you've never heard Mitch's podcasts before, this is a taste of what's to come.

    4: A trip to Girona to meet Mitch Docker

    4: A trip to Girona to meet Mitch Docker

    For this episode of The Cycling Podcast Lionel Birnie travelled to Girona to meet Mitch Docker.
    Melbourne-born Docker rides for EF Education First and is about to embark on his 12th season in the elite pro peloton. He came to Europe in 2009 when he got a contract with the Skil-Shimano team, then moved to Orica-GreenEdge, where he spent six years, before heading to EF Education First.
    In that time he's evolved from sprinter to lead-out man to Classics specialist to road captain.
    He's also the host of his own podcast, Life in the Peloton, but we thought it was time to turn the mic on Mitch and ask him the questions for a change...
    Coming soon: The Cycling Podcast and Life in the Peloton are joining forces for 2020 and Mitch's series of podcasts will be published on our channel from January 29. In the meantime, look out for edited versions of some of his favourite episodes from the archives on our channel.

    3: The Cycling Podcast Féminin | January 2020

    3: The Cycling Podcast Féminin | January 2020

    The Cycling Podcast Féminin returns for 2020 with a look ahead to the new season and interviews with Morgane Gaultier, the UCI's women's cycling coordinator, and two talented young riders, Sarah Gigante and Pfeiffer Georgi.
    Gigante is the youngster who shocked her rivals by winning the senior Australian national road race title last year at the age of just 18. Now 19, she backed that up this year by winning the time trial title. Rose Manley caught up with her a few days after the championships. 
    Georgi, also 19, combined riding for Sunweb with her school exams in 2019. With those behind her, she tells Orla Chennaoui that she will be fully focused on cycling in 2020 as she continues with the Dutch team, one of the eight now with World Tour status. 
    Orla, Rose and Richard Moore also discuss Annemiek van Vleuten's huge training rides and pick out things to look forward to in 2020, including the revamped Women's World Tour, the Olympic Games and the appointment of Rolf Aldag as a sports director at the Canyon/SRAM team.
