    All Roads Lead To Florence

    All Roads Lead To Florence

    With the Giro d’Italia now in the rear-view mirror Tadej Pogačar can afford to put his feet up (relatively-speaking) and watch how his likely rivals for the Tour de France fare in their final warm-up races.

    Daniel Friebe is at the Critérium du Dauphiné having transformed into Television’s Daniel Friebe by entering the nearest telephone box before emerging with a slightly bigger microphone. He handed over the baton to Graham Willgoss, who will be part of our Tour de France team alongside Richard Abraham and Mitch Docker.

    Graham, Richard and Mitch recap the opening couple of days of the Dauphiné and ask what to expect from the race in the French Alps over the rest of the week.

    Our Tour de France 2024 coverage starts here…

    Girovagando 2024: The Highlights

    Girovagando 2024: The Highlights

    The Giro d’Italia that ended last weekend was the ninth The Cycling Podcast has covered on the ground, in full, with daily episodes from every stage. 


    Over that near decade, it’s fair to say that our love of the ‘Corsa Rosa’ and its host nation has deepened and broadened with every edition. 


    Daniel Friebe was initially nonplussed with the route unveiled last autumn - thinking it lacked sporting uncertainty and both historical and topographical showpieces - but the journey from Turin to Rome ended up both reviving old loves, revealing new ones and providing a compelling canvas for the racing itself, for all that Tadej Pogačar robbed the General Classification contest of any suspense. 


    In this podcast, you’ll hear some of Daniel’s personal highlights from road trip he shared with Brian Nygaard - and to which you, as listeners were vicariously invited, down and up ‘The Bel Paese’, on and off-course, hopefully into the soul of the Giro d’Italia.

One of the best, most sincere and moving episodes I've heard in years. Lizzy deserves our support. I (we listeners) want to hear Lizzy's voice! Please help her to become a regular on "The Cycling Podcast" as Richard Moore would do. Best to you Lizzy!

Best Podcast for Cycling Culture and Racing

Brings the panache of European cycling to the US. Also gives insight into local culture. Great.

Fantastico

I like the word play and metaphors used often to describe the events gong on in cycling. The intelligence sometimes conveyed by all involved is appreciated, especially from a bunch of fellow alcoholics.... Thanks! Chiro is way too Nationalist, and rarely says anything of substance, no? Ah, but maybe he speaks for the sands of time.... . Lionel has an excellent robot voice! I miss Lionel being at the Giro. Send Italy your old Super 8 cameras! Queen stage? More like Queens of the Stone Age Stage.... Chiro you should be ashamed of your country. I am so saddened and sorry for the passing of Richard Moore. My condolences. He is and will be greatly missed.

It’s funny to hear Friebe call someone else snobby….
