Great entertainment and insight into pro cycling

This has become my favourite cycling podcast. Matt is very funny and his guests quickly become at ease and so the conversation just flows. The guests he has are stellar as well which always helps. Would recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in cycling as it’s very easy listening and has many laugh out loud moments even if you don’t follow pro cycling.

Yes Please! ,

Nice Pod

Less of the eating on mic would be appreciated.
