S8 Ep42: Dave Brailsford on a year with Ineos

The Cycling Podcast

In this week's episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe reveal a few more details of the upcoming coverage of Our Giro d'Italia. Our virtual journey round Italy kicks off in Budapest on Saturday, May 9 and over the course of three weeks we will delve into the history and culture of the Giro d'Italia, capturing the sounds and flavour of the first grand tour of the season. There'll also be an opportunity to ride part of our virtual Giro every day, but stay tuned for the fine details on that. In this week's episode we hear from Dave Brailsford, the boss of Team Ineos, as he marks the first anniversary of his working relationship with the chemical company owned by Jim Ratcliffe. Brailsford also talks about the impact of the coronavirus on professional cycling. There's François Thomazeau's latest song and Larry Warbasse talks about e-racing, having taken part in the Digital Swiss stage race. DONATE TO RYSZARD SZURKOWSKI We heard from Herbie Sykes about Ryszard Szurkowski, who won the first edition of the Peace Race 50 years ago and, aged 72, was paralysed in a crash during a race in Cologne a couple of year ago. The Lions Club of Poznan has set up a crowdfunding page to raise money to buy a customised vehicle for Ryszard.

OUR GIRO The Giro d'Italia may not be taking place in May this season but The Cycling Podcast will be releasing daily episodes telling the story of Our Giro. Race director Daniel Friebe has designed the route and we'll delve into our memory banks to celebrate the great race. There'll be the usual flavour of Italy along the way too... Here's our teaser.
