S9 Ep83: Life in the Peloton – Simon Mottram

The Cycling Podcast

For this episode of Life in the Peloton, I chatted to Simon Mottram, who founded Rapha back in 2004. I was really interested to hear what drove him to start the company and particularly his comment that Rapha is not a clothing company, it's a cycling company. Simon's passion for cycling shines through and it's fair to say that Rapha has changed the way we think about style on the bike. As you probably know my team, EF Education-Nippo, wears Rapha kit and so I wanted to find out more about the man who puts the jerseys on our backs. Cheers, Mitch Life in the Peloton playlist Keep in touch with Life in the Peloton Keep up to date with everything that’s going on with Life in the Peloton at my website lifeinthepeloton.com Life in the Peloton shop Check out my range of Life in the Peloton merchandise on our Etsy store too, from beanies and caps to embroidered tees, logo tees and much more.

It was commissioned by the production company behind Channel 4’s coverage of the Tour de France in the 1980s and was used as the theme music for the nightly highlights show. Pete died in December 2018. We were given permission by Pete’s widow and his manager to continue using the music for the theme tune to Life in the Peloton. To hear more about the music, listen to the Andre Greipel episode of Life in the Peloton.
