So, friends, that's it for another Tour de France - and what a memorable one it's been. Wout van Aert joined a super-exclusive club of riders to have won a mountain stage, a time trial and a sprint with victory on the Champs, Mark Cavendish did
Age: 22; starts: 2; wins: 2. It seems that 2 is indeed the magic number for Tadeg Pogacar, who is set to retain his Tour de France crown having finished seventh in the penultimate stage time trial. For the record, the prodigiously talented Wout
It was an emotional outing for stage winner Matej Mohoric, who made his feelings known about the well-documented police raid on the Bahrain-Victorious team hotel on finishing first in Libourne. His zipping-of-the-mouth gesture as he crossed the
On a day that Tadeg Pogacar once again showed everyone who’s boss, Ned, Chris, Matt, David and Pete discuss the vagaries of the King Of The Mountains competition, which Pogacar also claimed with his victory in Luz Ardiden, such is the weighting
A largely uneventful day's racing culminated in fine style, as new best friends Tadeg Pogacar and Jonas Vingegaard combined forces to see off a sneaky Richard Carapaz on the brutal final climb on the Col du Portet. Carapaz slipstreamed his riva
... by which we mean, Austria's Patrick Konrad, who won a thrilling victory in Saint-Gaudens. Hence, Paddy's Day. And, appropriately enough, Ned, Pete, David and Matt spend a fair bit of the pod discussing the race for Green, with the latter in
At least, that's how Ned, Matt, Chris and Pete view their second crack at a rest day pod. Among the subjects up for discussion - in the absence of interviews - the chances of anyone upsetting Tadeg Pogacar in the remaining days of the Tour, and
... well, actually Sepp Kuss didn't chase it down, but rather broke away on the final climb in the Pyrenees to become the first American to win a stage of the Tour since Tyler Farrar in 2011. Fittingly, Andorra is the country in which he reside
On the day that Bauke Mollema claimed a fine solo victory in Quillan, Ned, David, Pete, Matt and Chris spend much of the podcast coming up with bizarre alter egos, and reflecting upon some of the less imaginative nicknames for riders on the Tou
Well, he's only gone and done it. In defiance of all expectations prior to the 2021 Tour, Mark Cavendish equalled Eddic Merckx's stage victory record with a typically gutsy and audacious ride on between Nimes and Carcassonne. It's worth listeni
In a largely quiet day's racing, German Nils Politt cruised to victory in Nimes having launched a superb late attack from strong group of riders containing current world champion Julian Alaphilippe, and Imanol Erviti and Harry Sweeny - who fini
‘That’s not the most famous mountain in world cycling, it’s a reasonably sized hill!’ At least, that’s how it looked the way Wout Van Aert rode Ventoux, crushing a high-class field with a breathtaking solo breakaway that seemingly lasted foreve
If ever a stage has been taken in more convincing fashion by less than a quarter of a wheel, we'd like to see it. Mark Cavendish was quick to praise his teammates following his win. Especial thanks went lead-out man Michael Morkov, who made way
... the wicked being Ned, Chris, Pete, David & Matt, who compensate for the lack of action with some highly whimsical conversational meanderings. The lads return on Tuesday, when they are anticipating crosswinds on the 190km stage in the Valley
In addition to the important matters of the day, this episode is all about words you can’t pronounce and have never used, because you’re too frightened about mispronouncing or misunderstanding them. Think about the big words that fit that parti
Is this the moment we found our winner? Still a long way to go, of course, but day eight saw reigning champion Tadej Pogacar rip the yellow jersey off the back of young pretender Mathieu van der Poel, who was, as predicted, found somewhat wanti
What to say about today, aside from the fact that Slovenian powerhouse Matej Mohoric joined a relatively elite club of riders to have won a stage at all three of the Grand Tours, with a supremely accomplished ride as he 'cantered' to victory in
You can be sure the old Mark Cavendish is back when he wins a sprint in fine style, yet still finds time to complain about the efforts of rivals beaten, and the fact the finish line isn’t quite where it’s been in years gone by. But we wouldn’t
‘Now, lads, I know you’re the best cyclists in the world - and some of the fittest, strongest, most athletic and durable specimens humankind has ever produced - but I thought I might just nick 19 seconds from the lot of you over 39km on the tim
Hey, Cav, nice to see you, what have you been up to for the last 5 years? Oh, not much, hanging out, keeping busy, minding my own business, been a bit under the weather, to be honest. What you doing today, then? Hm, dunno, thought maybe I might
It’s days like this that serve as a reminder as to just how extraordinarily courageous and granite-hard you have to be to be a professional cyclist. The third stage of the Tour de France was won by Tim Merlier, but that doesn’t tell half the st
In an emotional day two of the tour, Mathieu Van der Poel took the yellow jersey by powering up the Mur-de-Bretagne for a sensational stage win on his debut - having attacked and attacked and attacked again. The Dutchman is the grandson of late
Gosh! Well, that was an uneventful start to the 2021 edition of the Tour. Nothing to talk about here at all. Nope, nothing: zip, nil, nada. That’s not true, of course. It was a brutal opening salvo, not least thanks to the intervention of an ov
Only Ned Boulting and Matt Rendell could preview the Tour de France by referencing the Suez crisis, bull tattoos, Sigmund Freud, dental surgery, medieval Cornish and the relative merits of the Brazilian and German football teams. But all this t
The final podcast of the Vuelta, Ned and David reflect on a vintage year of Cycling.
