    The Pride Episode: Being out as a cyclist

    The Pride Episode: Being out as a cyclist

    Paul Hartner is 21 years old, races for the Project Echelon elite team, and has legitimate dreams of a pro career. This makes him one of the most accomplished openly queer male cyclists on earth.

    This is his coming out story and, more broadly, the story of being out in the cycling world. It's told with the help of Trek-Segafredo pro Tayler Wiles and the man who guided Paul out of the closet, Owen McGrath.

    L39ION of LA, Lachlan's Everest, and Manuela Fundacion

    L39ION of LA, Lachlan's Everest, and Manuela Fundacion

    It's been a wild week in bike news. We actually had to re-record most of this episode, as the 24 hour gap between recording and publishing saw two major news stories make abrupt U-turns. 

    Manuela Fundacion will not be Mitchelton-Scott's new sponsor, and Lachlan Morton didn't actually set the Everesting record. We discuss. 

    Plus, we chat with Justin Williams about a new podcast collaboration between CyclingTips and his L39ION of LA team.

    The head-to-toe $200 kit challenge

    We open this week's episode with the News, including CCC's decision to pull out of its men's WorldTour team and rumors that Romain Bardet may be leaving AG2R. 

    Then, Shoddy Dave explains how he kitted himself out, head-to-toe, for $200 USD. Helmet, shoes, shorts, jersey, socks, gloves - everything.

    Was the gear any good? What did he learn from shopping at the bottom end of the market?

    Roadmap Episodes: How to make heroes

    Roadmap Episodes: How to make heroes

    How does a sport make heroes? How does cycling build superstars? This is the focus of our third Roadmap Episode, digging into the future of pro cycling at a time when the future is anything but clear. 

    We speak with Justin Williams, who has built his Legion criterium team into a mini media house, and to Helen Wyman, who understands the lessons road cycling can learn from cyclocross. And finally, we talk to Kimo Seymour of Life Time, the company that owns North America's largest gravel events.

When we AWL get together again....

I listen to AWL your podcasts—when is Neil going to rejoin the crew? Love your work and YES I can hear everyone, maybe because you AWL are using your own equipment at home. Thank you for making my day

This is one of the podcasts that I always listen to when a new one comes out. I have always loved the content and unbiased reviews and interviews.

Still 💗 the pod

Every one of the cycling pods that I listen to has its own personality & vibe.

Still enjoying you all, even after all these years. And Caley still has a soothing voice!

Update: I really miss Neal. Love the addition of Dane, though. It is like one of my best pals is missing.

AM, Marshall okay, nice as occ guests, but def not if I have to give up Neal.

And tbh, I wish AM & Marshall were mostly on their own pods. Though agree w M about Florida Project. I don’t care about MB, gravel, CX that much so the huge focus on gravel is not compelling to me.

Also while I’m wishing/commenting...

1) Easier if all your pods were in 1 feed as TCP does. I can skip the ones that I’m not into. Haven’t added any new ones to my feed. Probably won’t.

2) Still dislike your theme music. You & Velonews tie for most annoying theme music.

3) From the Top w the Rapha dude. He’s close to insufferable, which I did not expect. Not sure about that pod. A bit too fanboy - felt like a press placement. And do I care about what the ‘top’ folks think? Unclear if they need more attention. I’d probably be more into view from the front line team staff... so a bit concerned about more convos from folks ‘at the top of the cycling industry.’
