    Rouleur Conversations - Lora Klinc on Primož Roglič, and Cattle Auction from Issue 106

    Rouleur Conversations - Lora Klinc on Primož Roglič, and Cattle Auction from Issue 106

    Slovenia is a cycling superpower - with two out of the three Grand Tour winners this year and an Olympic time trial gold for Primož Roglič. A new book by Roglič's partner Lora Klinc was designed to explain the mysteries of the international peloton to Slovenia's legion of new cycling followers, and the English-language version is surprisingly informative for even the most knowledgeable fan. Also on this episode, Daniel Stewart's examination of xenophobia in bike racing from Rouleur Issue 106.

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - Supersapiens

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - Supersapiens

    Supersapiens hit the headlines recently when the UCI banned use of the glucose monitoring system in races. Company founder and CEO Phil Southerland, who also founded Team Novo Nordisk with a roster comprised entirely of type 1 diabetics, declared it a backward step from the governing body, citing improved rider health and welfare possibilities with the new technology.
    Supersapiens co-founder and CTO Gagan Chaudhari joins us to explain how the system works, what the benefits are, how to monitor fuel intake and what the future holds. It’s food for thought, literally.

    Rouleur Conversations - Rouleur Edition 106 The Empowerment Issue

    How do we make cycling - as a sport and a way of life - as diverse as possible? That’s the central question in Rouleur edition 106 - The Empowerment Issue. And it’s the theme of this podcast. We hear from cycling coach Thea Smith on how her club is trying to attract more women, non-binary and trans people through the gates of the venerable velodrome in London’s Herne Hill. And from Will Butler-Adams of Brompton on how the bike industry has a vital role to play in rebuilding society after the pandemic.

    Rouleur Tech Podcast - BMC and bike design

    Swiss brand BMC are leaders in technological developments in the bike world. From their base in Grenchen, BMC’s team of engineers at the Impec lab develop new ideas and push the boundaries of what can be achieved in bicycle design for any terrain. Stefan Christ, head of R&D at BMC, joins host Dan Cavallari to explain what they get up to in their mysterious lab, and what we can expect to see coming out of the brain factory in the future. Both Dan and Rouleur’s digital editor Peter Stuart have visited the BMC HQ on several occasions, and a whole lot more besides. Peter chips in with his take on who is really putting in the hard yards on R&D.

    Rouleur Conversations - Emma Pooley and The Art of Cycling

    Rouleur Conversations - Emma Pooley and The Art of Cycling

    Emma Pooley is more likely to be found running up hills these days than cycling up them, but the competitive spirit that led her to Olympic medals, world championships and multiple stage and race wins is still strong.  She joins presenter Ian Parkinson from her home near Zurich to talk about retirement, the current state of the women’s pro scene and why she’s about to run 100km through the mountains. She also delivers a personal warning about the dangers of too much sun and not enough sunscreen. Tan-line cultivators listen closely.
    And what can cyclists learn from the great philosophers? Author James Hibbard argues that - from Plato’s search for the ideal to Nietzsche’s struggles in the Alps - there are lessons there for anyone who rides.

    Rouleur Tech Podcast:Lael Wilcox Unbound

    Rouleur Tech Podcast:Lael Wilcox Unbound

    Ultra-Endurance rider Lael Wilcox was the fastest woman at Unbound 2021. She sits down with host Dan Cavallari to discuss going fast over 350 miles of gravel. While it's all about the legs and the heart, bike tech plays a vital role in multi-day races in the wilderness. From making the right choice of aero bar or flat bar, choosing the best power banks and bringing a reliable head-torch for those nighttime mechanicals, Lael doesn't leave a single element of her gear to chance. Evidently as averse to an idle mind as an idle body, Lael also explains how she rode across Alaska while listening to East of Eden on audiobook, and in one race stayed awake by scaring herself stiff listening to Stephen King's It.
    We promise this podcast will be a little less jarring.
