Join Rose Manley, Lionel Birnie and Lizzy Banks as our nightly coverage of The Women’s Tour kicks off following the opening stage to Banbury.
Hear from Sophie Wright, teammate of stage winner Marta Bastianelli, and Anna Christian, who launched one of the most persistent attacks of the opening stage.
Plus there’s Lizzie Deignan, who lines up as defending champion and newly-crowned Paris-Roubaix winner, Christine Majerus, Amy Pieters and Elisa Longo Borghini.
Lizzy outlines what we can expect to see over the coming five days after a number of potential winners were ruled out. Will this be a race won by the sprinter who can time trial best or can someone gain enough time against the clock to hold off the time bonus chasers?
We also ask what the impact of a brutal debut edition of Paris-Roubaix may have on the six-day stage race.
Plus, we discuss Banbury Cakes and ask what the nursery rhyme is all about.

    191: Service Course | One hour, three minutes and 59 seconds in the life of...

    1:25:58

    In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy and Tom speak to two holders of prestigious cycling world records. First up is Ashton Lambie, who at the time of recording is the current holder of the individual pursuit world record, and the first person to go under four minutes in that event. Ashton talks about living in an RV, not wanting to ride for a road team, bench pressing over 300lbs, coffee, bikes, and what to watch on Netflix. Next is Joss Lowden, the new hour record holder. Lizzy caught up with her at the British National Championships, she tells us that she actually broke that record riding one of Ashton’s old frames. Finally Tom chats to Anna Lawson, an ironman athlete, about the weird world of bikes used in those competitions, but more importantly her ride to COP26 in Glasgow and the ways that cycling can have a positive impact on climate change.

    190: Life in the Peloton – The retirement episode

    1:41:12

    So, this is it, retirement. Or, to put it another way, the longest off-season of my life. I've ridden my final race and in a few short weeks I will be officially retired from the professional peloton. When I made the decision that this would be my final season as a rider, I wanted to prepare myself for what comes next. And so, over the course of the year, as my mindset has changed and I've got closer to my final race, I spoke to some friends and former teammates about what to expect. In this episode, I speak to eight people who have all adjusted to retirement – some very recently, such as Tejay van Garderen, some longer ago like David Millar. Brett Lancaster, Andreas Klier and Robert Wagner have all stayed in the sport in some way, whereas Dom Rollin has gone in a completely different direction. I also speak to Grace Elvin and my good buddy Svein Tuft about the ups and downs of no longer being a pro athlete. What's it like to no longer be the best at something? How do we adjust to regular life? What can those who have gone before me tell me that can help me prepare for my own retirement? This is the final episode of Life in the Peloton for 2021. I hope you've enjoyed our season of shows. Thank you for all your support and kind comments and I'll see you on the road. I'm really looking forward to finding out what life outside the peloton has in store...

    189: The four days of Pozzato

    1:15:17

    Richard Moore has been in the Veneto region of northern Italy experiencing the rebirth of racing in an area that is rich in cycling heritage. Richard joins Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe to talk about the week's racing and riding. Filippo Pozzato, former Milan-Sanremo winner and Italian national champion, has created a new one-day race in his own image. The Giro del Veneto, first held in the 1920s but absent from the calendar for more than a decade, has returned and has been joined by the Veneto Classic and a gravel one-day race, the Serenissima. The Veneto region is also home to some of Italian cycling's most storied manufacturers, including Campagnolo and Sidi. But how does a new race fit into an already crowded Italian race calendar, what is the true potential for gravel racing, and what does it say about the current state of the sport in Italy?

    183: Life in the Peloton – My last Sunday in Hell

    1:29:16

    So, this is it, my final race as a professional cyclist. When I announced I'd be retiring at the end of this season I didn't know what my last race would be, but then fate stepped in. Paris-Roubaix – a race I've truly loved over the years, was rescheduled from its usual April spot to an end-of-season Sunday in October. It seemed fitting to ride this brutal race to close my career. It's been quite a journey to get here, especially after fracturing my elbow in a crash at the Benelux Tour in early September. With so many high-calibre Classics riders in our team I wasn't guaranteed a start. It was touch-and-go whether I'd be on the start line in Compiègne for the Hell of the North and there were even moments in my final preparation race when I had my doubts. This episode tells the story of my final week as a professional cyclist. Join me along the way as I get ready for the race with my current teammates – Tom Scully, Michael Valgren and Stefan Bisseger, catch up with some of my best friends in the peloton, Bert de Backer, Luke Durbridge, Sam Bewley, Jack Bauer and Mathew Hayman, followed by the aftermath of one of the legendary wet editions of Paris-Roubaix. I've always said I wanted to do at least one wet Paris-Roubaix before I retired but as the rain fell on the morning of the race and everyone retreated into their own thoughts I began to have second thoughts. I won't spoil how the race turned out – you'll have to listen for that – but as one of my old teammates said, very few people in sport get to bow out with a fairytale finish. Having said that, the way my Paris-Roubaix ended turned out to be the perfect send-off. I've loved my professional career but I've learned this year that when it's time, you know it's time. I hope you enjoy this episode – thank you for all the support whether you were there cheering in the rain or watching at home.

    182: Women’s Tour 2021: Stage 3 – Atherstone time trial

    47:41

    The Women’s Tour had the first time trial stage in its eight-year history as the riders tackled a 16.6-kilometre circuit round Atherstone. But this was about as far from the traditional out-and-back British 10-mile time trial as you could get. Join Rose Manley, Lionel Birnie and Lizzy Banks in the New Swan in Atherstone as they recap a stage that has turned the race on its head – and possibly put the leader’s jersey out of the reach of all the riders. Hear how the time trial unfolded with our focus on the riders who sat in the hot seat – or the giant deckchair of destiny – over the course of the afternoon. We spoke to the riders who led the time trial and to Demi Vollering, who won the stage and took what could be an unassailable lead overall. Lizzy was out on the course checking out the technical aspects of a demanding course and we hear from Clara Copponi, who put up a spirited defence of the race lead she took yesterday. We also hear from World Hour record breaker Jos Lowden, Women’s Tour ever-present Leah Kirchmann and Lionel finds out about the Atherstone ball game.
