It’s the final episode of Talking Luft for the year. And officially my final episode of Talking Luft as a professional cyclist.

After so many of you asked how I wear my cycling cap, I thought I would get my good mate Luke Durbridge to flip the mic on me and ask all the usual questions.

On our last night in Spain together, we sat down over a few Orvals and had a good laugh recording.

In true Talking Luft style we chat:

Cycling caps full of luft, headbands, coffee stop routines, solo training vs. group training, my favourite training loops in Europe & Melbourne and a whole lot of beer.

Plus.. find out what my second favourite race is behind Roubaix (because we all know that’s no secret).

This was a great way bookend my time in Europe, and for now, it’s full steam ahead as I pack up with the family and move our lives back to Australia.

This was the last episode of the Life in the Peloton for this year, but don’t worry, both Life in the Peloton and Talking Luft will be back again in January for a whole new season of podcasts – with an exciting new sponsor onboard. Stay tuned for more news on that in the coming months!

If you missed an episode this year, you can find both series here on our website: Life in the Peloton (with The Cycling Podcast) and Talking Luft or on all major podcast platforms.

I want to say a big thanks to everyone for listening and following the podcast this year. To the long time listeners and the newcomers to the show – thanks for joining me, you guys keep me coming back and I’m continually blown away by the support. Thanks also to everyone for getting behind the caps and merch this year, it’s been unreal to see them out on the roads and I’m so glad you’ve loved them as much as I have.

Lastly, some final thanks to the team behind the podcast. To Simon Kane who’s been editing these Talking Luft episodes and has taken the quality to a whole new level. Thanks mate.

To Lionel and all the team at The Cycling Podcast for having us over the past two years, it’s been an awesome ride, thanks guys.

And to Lara who works on everything behind the scenes to keep Life in the Peloton running smoothly, a big thanks.

For now, enjoy this episode and I hope you can all enjoy a little off season of your own, time to switch the channel over to cyclocross!

Until next year..

Cheers,

Mitch

    Talking Luft! with Allan (Alby) Iacuone. S3. E01.

    44:33

    Rapha presents Talking Luft! G’day everyone, Talking Luft is back for 2022! But what is Talking Luft? Well, it’s really just a little extra chat I have with guests that I speak with on Life In the Peloton the previous week. A bit like the DVD Extras, it’s the break away series where I try to find out that little bit more about them and their cycling style. It's a little bit laidback and a lot of fun. This season I've broken the episodes up into 4 topics: Style, Bikes, Culture & About You - with an exciting bunch of new questions for 2022.  On last week's episode “How not to train like a Pro," I spoke with my old coach, and returning guest, Kevin Poulton about entering a new era of my life - life after pro cycling - and how I go about training now while still keeping as much form as possible. Both Kev and I had already featured on Talking Luft, so I was searching for a new guest that would fit.  Meet local Melbourne cycling legend Allan ‘Alby’ Iacuone. He was previous Australian champion in 1994, rode professionally overseas many moons ago and has continued to hold his form while rejoining the rat race of normal life. He has mastered the 'How to not train like a pro' while continuing to hold pro form! The perfect guest. Alby has a very likeable personality as you'll hear, he is currently the coordinator of the Rapha Cycling Club and is known around the Australian cycling scene as a real local legend - the perfect guy to talk some Luft with. It was great recording at the Melbourne Rapha Clubhouse and I loved hearing Alby's stories. Enjoy the first ep of 2022 and stay tuned next week for a great new episode of Life in the Peloton with Stuart O'Grady. Cheers, Mitch   Show Notes Watch the highlights that we chat about for Alby's 'Most Rewatchable Race' - the Tour de France 1992 - Stage 13, it's epic! https://youtu.be/JbDLVTMr0V4 . . .

    Coach Kevin Poulton – How not to train like a pro. Ep1. S7.

    52:16

    Photo: Theo Clarkes Rapha presents Life in the Peloton Well, here we are at the start of a New Year – and this is a big one. It’s the start of my life after professional road racing: it’s a new era for me, and of course for the pod! As you might also know by now though, I’m not out of the game just yet… In 2022 I’ll still be on the bike, but instead of the World Tour I’ll be tackling a whole new range of events from my new base back here in Australia. The pod won’t be slowing down either, we have a fantastic new title sponsor in Rapha who we’ll be collaborating with to keep track of the pro peloton and the wider cycling world. With a new outlook and a different calendar in front of me I’ve got back on the bike and I’ve been loving it. Without Grand Tours or Classics on my schedule however, I realised that I don’t need to be doing the thirty hour weeks on the bike, and I don’t need to keep obsessing over that extra one percent. So what should my riding look like? After thirteen years in the peloton, I want to know how not to train like a pro. What would make me faster? How long do I need to get fit? What – if any – residual benefits would there be from all the work I’d done over all these years? What better way to understand this than to talk to my old coach, Kevin Poulton. Some of you will be familiar with Kev from some previous pods; he has a wealth of experience, he’s full of insight on all aspects of training, and I love chatting to him. Kicking off with explaining where I have just come from, Kev and I talked about the heightened intensity of the World Tour, and the changes in training over the past decade. We also put forward our theories as to why the peloton seems to have been going so fast for so much of the time in the last two years. Kev also got into detail about what my riding should look like now. He had some great tips and advice that really helped me start to plan for a big year ahead. We have a great cycling scene here in Melbourne and we discuss how to use the bunch rides, the chop offs, and even some KOM hunting to get what you need. I’d love to think that there is also something in there for anyone out there listening who wants to know how to get the best benefit from limited time in the saddle. So let’s get going with the first pod of the new era: Life in the Peloton – How not to train like a pro. And stay tuned next week for as we kick off our regular programming of Talking Luft every second week.

    Life after the Peloton – Advice on Retiring from Pro Cycling

    1:40:27

    The Cycling Podcast presents Life in the Peloton It’s the final episode of the year on The Cycling Podcast, and my final episode as a pro as I pack up life in Europe and head into my retirement from cycling. This final year of professional racing for me has been a transitional phase in many senses. Firstly, because I haven’t raced a whole lot, I was able to start getting used to being back at home with the family and falling into a more ‘normal routine’ outside of athlete life. Secondly, facing the change to my next phase of life meant trying to understand what life on the flip side of being a professional athlete is like; what to expect, what to relish when approaching my final races & maybe even what to physically keep as some kind of memorabilia as we pack up to move back to Australia. I started picking out a few ex-professionals that I knew & have looked up to with respect as to how they transitioned after they left the peloton. You’ll hear me speak with ex-pros David Millar, Svein Tuft, Tejay Van Garderen, Gracie Elvin, Brett Lancaster, Dominique Rollin, Robert Wagner and Andreas Klier. I wanted to chat with them to pick their brains and hear their thoughts over the course of my final year as a pro, to help me take it all in – hoping they could give me advice, help me learn from their mistakes and shed some light on what’s to be expected from the transition from Professional Cyclist to the ‘real world’. It was great hearing all their perspectives, as you’ll hear, I know it will be quite the lifestyle change but it’s something I’m ready to tackle head on. I’m looking forward to a few Aussie beers at home with the family. For now I hope you enjoy this last episode of the season and a big thanks for all the support over the this final year. I’ll see you here next year from the other side of the fence. Stay tuned next week, our final Talking Luft for the year, with Luke Durbridge turning the mic on me.

    Talking Luft! with Bert De Backer. S2.E17.

    25:22

    Talking Luft is back for another week and this time I’ve got Bert De Backer behind the mic, or Backsie as I like to call him. Bert is a Belgian Pro and good mate of mine who I first raced with back in the days of Skil-Shimano, and who also retired this year, riding his last race at Paris-Roubaix with Pro Team B&B Hotels p/b KTM. A few days before our last Paris-Roubaix I sat down with Bert and got Talking Luft (or lack of – in Bert’s case). We chat cycling caps and heads full of hair, all things Belgian – including a lesson in Belgian patisserie treats, training loops, best team kits, bikes and a cheat meal that couldn’t get any more Belgian. You’ll hear we had a good laugh recording this one, so I hope enjoy the listen! I also had Bert on ‘My Last Sunday in Hell’ episode that aired last week over at The Cycling Podcast, where I took you on the road to Paris-Roubaix for the last week of racing in my pro career. If you haven’t checked that out be sure to head over for a listen. But for now, here’s Backsie.

    Mitch Docker – Paris-Roubaix: My Last Sunday in Hell

    1:28:32

    Photo: Pipe Cano The Cycling Podcast presents Life in the Peloton Since announcing my retirement from Pro cycling earlier this year, I knew I would draw my 13 year career to a close at the end of the 2021 season. At that point I didn’t know what my last race might be. Then fate stepped in – Paris-Roubaix, a race I’ve truly loved over the years, was rescheduled from it’s usual April spot to an end of season Sunday in October. It seemed perfectly fitting to ride this brutal race as a bookend of my pro career. So that’s what I aimed for. But with the many high caliber classic style riders in our team, I wasn’t guaranteed an automatic start. I had to be ready to race. And as many of you know, my run-in to my final race wasn’t all smooth sailing. After fracturing my elbow 3 weeks out at Benelux tour, the question of my ability to race – especially a cobbled classic race – was up in the air. I was finally selected to go to Belgium for that last week of racing, with a one day classic, Eurométropole, the Wednesday before Paris-Roubaix, to test out whether my elbow would hold up. It’s no secret I did make it to the start of Paris-Roubaix, but, as you’ll hear, it wasn’t without my doubts. This episode I take you along for the ride that final week of my Pro cycling career. I chat to my mates and teammates who were there with me along the way: Tom Scully, Michael Valgren, Stefan Bissegger, past teammates Bert de Backer, Luke Durbridge, Sam Bewley, Jack Bauer and Mathew Hayman. I hear their stories of past Paris-Roubaix editions, their hopes & fears for our upcoming wet October Sunday and we look back at the day that was My Last Sunday in Hell. It was one hell of a final week of racing, full of nerves, excitement & capped off in one brutal day on the cobbles. What was truly most special about that day was the support out on the road. There could not have been a better place to finish my career than Belgium, the home of cycling. I want to thank everyone who was there cheering in the rain or watching from home. It was a day I’ll never forget.

    Talking Luft! with Hannah Barnes. S2.E16.

    17:09

    Talking Luft is back for another week & I’m chatting with British pro Hannah Barnes, who rides for Canyon-SRAM. In true Talking Luft style we chat a bit of life outside of the peloton & the good things in life. As you can see, Hannah runs some sensational Luft in her cap so I was keen to get her take. We chat cap style, training loops, her favourite bikes, the perfect G&T and an intriguing back story into the design of her favourite kit of all time. I had Hannah over on The Cycling Podcast last week hearing about her story growing up in the UK and how she got into cycling and the World Tour. It was a great listen if you haven’t heard it already head over and jump into it. But for now enjoy this episode of Talking Luft! I also wanted to say thanks to everyone who got behind our LITP x COIS Road Worlds’ Collection. It’s been awesome to see how many of you loved it. Don’t forget – the pre-order for the Worlds’ Tshirt closes this Friday 1st Oct, so be sure to head across to get yours.

    Hannah Barnes – Growing up in the Peloton

    49:23

    The Cycling Podcast presents Life in the Peloton I’m back this week with one of the most experienced riders in the Women’s Pro Peloton, British rider Hannah Barnes. After turning pro with United Healthcare in 2014, Hannah has ridden for Canyon-SRAM for the past six seasons and is set to move on to the new Uno-X Team next year. As a youngster she was multiple National Champion across several cycling disciplines, and most recently won the British National Individual Time Trial in 2018. She’s also a Giro d’Italia stage winner and has finished top six in both Gent-Wevelgem and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. I was keen to hear Hannah’s story and how she came into cycling and the pro peloton. I loved hearing about her early years; watching her Dad race 24hr mountain bike events on the weekend, lying about her age when she was 12 so she could join one of the relay teams and joining the local club at age 10 to start weekly racing. She’s had a colourful career, across multiple continents and as you’ll hear, her fair share of ups and downs. I hope you enjoy the chat with Hannah, I know I did.

    Talking Luft! with Niamh & Finn Fisher-Black. S2.E14

    31:21

    Niamh and Finn Fisher-Black are siblings from New Zealand, both currently racing in the World Tour. I had this brother-sister combo on the pod last week over at The Cycling Podcast chatting about making the jump across from NZ to Europe to live the pro life. Which, as I remembered, isn’t all that smooth sailing. It was a great chat to these youngsters who definitely have a big pro career ahead of them! Jump over and listen if you haven’t already. This week I’ve got them both on for a bit of Talking Luft – and it was a lot of fun. We chat favourite teams & races, training loops in Nelson, coffee, cheat meals and I learn what the kids these days are calling a Tafi cap. Plus! Listen out for the announcement about our new merch collab coming very soon! Enjoy guys!

    Niamh & Finn Fisher-Black – Siblings taking on the Pro Life

    46:43

    The Cycling Podcast presents Life in the Peloton Life in the Peloton is back after a break during the Vuelta a España and for this episode I spoke to two young Kiwi champions who are going to have very big futures. If you don’t know the name Fisher-Black yet, I reckon you’re going to hear it a lot in the coming months and years. Niamh and Finn Fisher-Black are brother and sister who are both racing at World Tour level. Niamh is 21 and in her first year with the SD Worx team after a couple of seasons with Bigla Pro Cycling. This season she was ninth overall at the Giro and won the best young rider classification. Her younger brother Finn is still only 19 and he started the season with the Jumbo-Visma development team. As you’ll hear, he was starting to be integrated in the Pro Jumbo-Visma team and rode the Baloise Belgium Tour for them in June, finishing fourth overall in a race won by Remco Evenepoel. That turned out to be his final race for Jumbo-Visma because in July he made a mid-season switch to UAE-Team Emirates. I wanted to find out more about Niamh and Finn, how they grew up racing and training together and their transition over into the pro ranks. Listening to them speak about their transition from New Zealand to European pro life reminded me of my move so many years ago and the commitment it takes to move to the other side of the World to try to make it in the sport. I really enjoyed this chat, I hope you enjoy the listen. Stay tuned next week for our Talking Luft!
