    Tour Down Under news and interviews

    Tour Down Under news and interviews

     After a long hiatus we welcome back Procycling editor Edward Pickering to the Cyclingnews podcast, as we look ahead to the Tour Down Under and discuss a number of topics from the evolution of UAE Team Emirates to the chances of Elia Viviani and Caleb Ewan as they go head-to-head in Australia.
     Viviani moved to Cofidis over the winter and we discuss how the French team has successfully gone about their business in the transfer market and whether the Italian can replicate the form he has shown over the last two years.
     We also hear from both Viviani and Ewan after Sunday’s downtown criterium, while we also check in with Tom Southam from EF Pro Cycling as he looks ahead to the first WorldTour race of the year.
     Our final interview in this episode is with Matt White, from Mitchelton Scott. White has masterminded six overall titles in the last nine years and with Daryl Impey on his roster is looking to make it three in a row. The Australian team director talks about this year’s Tour Down under course and how and where the race might be won.

    Dumoulin, Alaphilippe and the best and worst of the 2020 WorldTour kits

    Dumoulin, Alaphilippe and the best and worst of the 2020 WorldTour kits

    In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast we hear from Tom Dumoulin, Julian Alaphilippe, Caleb Ewan and Jumbo Visma’s Merijn Zeeman on how he picked his team’s Tour de France squad, and how they’ll take on Team Ineos in July. 
    We also cast our gaze over the good, the bad and the ugly from this year’s men’s WorldTour team kits. We announce the winners of our signed Vincenzo Nibali jerseys and there are two musettes stuffed with kit to give away. 
    We start with a look back at the highlights from the December training camps and sit down with former Giro d’Italia winner Tom Dumoulin. The Dutchman controversially switched teams to move from Sunweb to Jumbo Visma over the winter and in our interview he opens up about the car journey in which he turned around at half-way due to his knee injury and his reasons for switching teams. Now fit and healthy, he also talks about the 2020 Tour de France and how he and Jumbo Visma’s other leaders are going to work together this July. 
    Dumoulin’s director, Merijn Zeeman is another guest on the podcast and he tells us how the management arrived at the final eight Jumbo Visma for July’s event and why they’ve decided to send such a strong team to the race.
    From Jumbo Visma we head to Deceuninck-QuickStep in Calpe and catch up with Alaphilippe to find out whether he can replicate his incredible 2019 season. 
    We also pick our top three, and bottom three, WorldTour kit designs for 2020, before a final stop at Lotto-Soudal in Mallorca where we hear from Caleb Ewan on his dreams for Milan-San Remo and his transition from Mitchelton Scott to his current Belgian team.
    Our latest competition gives you the chance to win one of two mussettes. We have one from Katusha Alpecin that’s stuffed with goodies and kit from last year, while we also have a similar prize for BMC Racing fans. Can you tell we’ve recently moved offices and need to clear some space?

    Peter Stetina: From the WorldTour to gravel racing

    Peter Stetina: From the WorldTour to gravel racing

    In this episode of the Cyclingnews Podcast, brought to you by Sportful, Floyds of Leadville and Pinarello, we kick off 2020 with an exclusive interview with Peter Stetina. The American rider turned away from the WorldTour at the end of the 2019 campaign, and is now preparing for a change in direction as he embarks on a season of gravel races. In late December, we sat down with Stetina, who enjoyed ten years at the top of elite racing at the WorldTour level. 


    He talks about his time in the sport, stage racing, almost losing his leg after a career-threatening crash, and how his accident forced him to take stock of everything around him. "I'm stepping away in my prime," Stetina tells us, as he looks back on a decade-long career that has spanned a number of high-profile teams. 


    Stetina also talks about his charity work and the causes close to him, before opening up about his hopes for the future, as he enters a new phase of his life.


    We hope you enjoy our discussion with Peter Stetina.

    Cyclingnews Podcast: Review of the year

    Earlier this month the Cyclingnews Podcast team recorded their first episode in front of a live studio audience. Featuring expert knowledge from Philippa York and Yanto Barker - and podcast mainstays Edward Pickering from Procycling Magazine and Cyclingnews’ Daniel Benson - we looked back at the last 12 months with a quickfire review of the cycling year, starting with the monuments of spring, on through the Giro, Tour de France and Vuelta and the World Championships. We even took questions from the audience.
     


    Full of genuine insight into the racing season and anecdotes from York’s career, the podcast provided a neat overview of the year with one eye also looking towards the future and the riders the panel expects to dominate in 2020.

    World Championship: Controversy in the U23 men’s race

    World Championship: Controversy in the U23 men’s race

    It’s the morning after the U23 race at the World Championships and there’s only one place to start and that’s with the disqualification of Nils Eekhoff from the Netherlands and the decision from the UCI jury to award Samuele Battistella (Italy) with the rainbow jersey.
    Eekhoff had crossed the line first in Harrogate after a seven-man sprint but an hour after the finish it was announced that the UCI jury were investigating the result.
    Another hour went by before Eekhoff was seen leaving the race in tears. His crime, drafting after crashing with around 120km to race. The UCI only checked the footage after the race, which of course led to huge uproar from fans, journalists and fellow riders. It’s fair to say that this has been the biggest talking point of the race so far.
    We hear from Eekhoff, his national coach, Tom Pidcock, who was bumped from fourth to third as a result, and the UCI.

Quite insightful opinions and coverage, good interviews

Irish_7 ,

Great podcast, handsome presenters, can I win the prize please?

Bahrain McLaren, Jumbo Visma, EF

A Keating ,

Fantastic, exclusive insights.

This Podcasts provides a unique view into the world of cycling, I’ve really enjoyed listening to a point of view that I’ve never considered before, such as the recent interview with a cycling agent and the world of transfers. Including interviews with riders before and after races is also a great touch and interesting to listen to post-race emotions of the riders, which usually you only get to hear from the race winner on tv coverage.
My favourite episode is the yearly ranking and reviews of the team jersey’s to compare my own thoughts. Only improvement I could think to offer is a regular weekly podcast releases same day every week to fit in the schedule.
Keep up the great work guys!
