    Meet the World Tour's youngest rider

    Meet the World Tour's youngest rider

    In our first episode of 2022 we meet the World Tour’s youngest rider, Cian Uijtdebroeks.




    The 18-year-old Belgian has signed for Bora-Hansgrohe and will make his professional debut in Mallorca at the end of the month. 




    Already dubbed “the next Remco,” Uijtdebroeks came to wide attention when he won the junior edition of Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne in 2020 with a 50km solo breakaway. 




    But who is he, and how does an 18-year-old deal with the expectation and hype that comes with being a talented young rider in Belgium?




    Before Christmas, Richard went to meet him at the Uijtdebroeks family home close to the border between Flanders and Wallonia.

    The Cesares aka The Moonies: Our alternative awards 2021

    The Cesares aka The Moonies: Our alternative awards 2021

    Welcome to The Cesares, also known as The Moonies, or to put it more simply The Cycling Podcast's alternative awards 2021.

    Our virtual ceremony hosted by Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe has none of the glitz or glamour of The Oscars or, indeed, any of the world's well-known awards nights.

    But it can only be a matter of time before The Cesares, or The Moonies, or whatever we're calling it is, matches the same prestige as the Velo d'Or or the Flandrien of the Year prize.

    So, without further ado, let's reach for The Cycling Podcast's pile of brown envelopes to see who the lucky winners are this year. Which race will claim the Definitely Not Flèche Wallonne Race of the Year prize? Who is in line for the Sex and the City Comeback of the Year gong? Who can stand in the way of Primož Roglič and the Primož Roglič Defeat from the Jaws of Victory award?

    Drum roll, please... let's welcome to the stage, in a virtual tuxedo and bow tie, your host Richard Moore...

    Explore | The 12 hills of Christmas

    Explore | The 12 hills of Christmas

    Explore usually takes riders a little further afield than just a few kilometres from their home but in this episode Lionel Birnie sets out on his familiar festive route in the eastern edge of the Chilterns.

    On the route are 12 hills and so this is the 12 hills of Christmas, a 90-kilometre route peppered with short climbs.

    While Christmas is a time for celebrations, lightheartedness and joy it's also a time for reflection on the year almost passed. Regular listeners will know Lionel missed a big chunk of the season and cancelled his Tour d'Écosse series for Explore at very short notice. While the roads may be reassuringly familiar, he also takes the time to explore less comfortable territory as he talks about his mental health and what happened this year.

    Service Course | Press conference

    In this press conference episode of Service Course, Tom Whalley and Lizzy Banks open the floor to your questions. We discuss whether time is up for the front derailleur thanks to Classified's revolutionary two-speed hub, we try to unmuddy the waters when it comes to picking that perfect winter tyre and Richard from France asks Tom and Lizzy to describe their dream builds.

    Finally, we talk about increasing the accessibility of cycling and hear from the creator of The School of Rocks, Eleanor Jaskowska, about how to build your confidence and develop a skillset for off-road riding. Her partner, Liam Glen, winner of the Highland Trail 550 also tells us about building a race winning bike on a budget and making your own bike packing bags.

    Annus galaxicus: Press conference

    In this week's episode, it's over to you, our listeners, to ask the questions of Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe.

    Is Patrick Lefevere's belief in Remco Evenepoel misplaced? Is it right for the whole cycling circus to fly to Australia for the World Championships considering the environmental impact? How have the peloton and the press room changed since we started The Cycling Podcast in 2013? Are the crowds at the Tour of Britain bigger than at the Dauphiné? Which race route would make the best one-day Classic? Can anyone win the triple crown again? And more...
