In our final regular podcast from the Giro d’Italia we hear some of the riders’, team directors’ and journalists’ highlights from the past three weeks, with contributions from Gianluca Brambilla, Daniel Oss, Simon Clarke, Filippo Pozzato, Stefan Küng, Albert Timmer, Matt White, Nate Brown, Laura Meseguer, Adam Hansen, who in Turin completed his 14th consecutive Grand Tour, and many more. There’s also an interview with the runner-up, Esteban Chaves, who, after losing the pink jersey to Vincenzo Nibali on Saturday, at least had the consolation of being named our overall Pédaleur de Charme winner. And Daniel Friebe meets Miculà Dematteis, a former teammate of Nibali with a fascinating story. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport and Eurosport.
The penultimate stage of the Giro d’Italia, crossing back into Italy and finishing at Sant'Anna di Vinadio, saw Vincenzo Nibali complete his Lazarus act to claim the pink jersey of overall leader. Nibali’s apparently dramatic turnaround over two days in the Alps has raised eyebrows and in Saturday’s stage 20 podcast Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe discuss whether suspicion is justified. They are also joined by Ciro Scognamiglio of Gazzetta dello Sport. There are interviews with Joe Dombrowski, who was third on the stage, Alejandro Valverde, who moved up to third overall, Ian Boswell, Jos van Emden, Tanel Kangert and Steven Kruijswijk. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport and Eurosport.
In Friday's Cycling Podcast from stage 19 of the Giro d’Italia to Risoul, Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe savour the most gripping day of racing in this year's 'Corsa Rosa'. A sensational stage win has put Vincenzo Nibali back in contention to win the race overall, while Esteban Chaves has taken over the maglia rosa from Steven Kruijswijk. Kruijswijk's crash on the descent off the Agnello has thrown the race wide open. Chaves, Nibali & the Dutchman are all now potential winners with another brutal mountain stage now standing between the peloton & the race finale in Turin on Sunday. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport & Eurosport.
May 27 | With riders from 34 nations racing this year's Giro, the 'Corsa Rosa' now emphatically lives up to its billing as a global sporting showcase. Between Eritreans & Russians, Albanians & Brazilians, there are many common themes but also some remarkably different journeys to the Giro. Together, they demonstrate that cycling is changing & diversifying almost beyond recognition - even if its sacred races & places remain the same. Kilometre 0 is supported by Science in Sport.

In this Quick Tip Victor answers a question about riding downhill from listener Marcus in Australia. A lot of people are nervous about going downhill fast on a bike. It can be a lot of fun but you have to have confidence. Victor’s non-scientific advice comes in two points: Point one is to trick your brain to build confidence Point two is to keep the bike stable by weighing the pedals Victor also addresses some common problems faced when riding downhill: High speed wobbles and how to stop them When decending how do you use your brakes?

In Natalia's absence, the dudes try really, really hard to channel her spirit to talk about women's cycling, but they don't do a very good job. What they do accomplish beautifully is ramble on and on about Scandinavia, California and the Upper East Side in Manhattan. The fourth Grand Tour is discussed. Sorta. The Giro, a real Grand Tour, is also discussed. IAM Cycling is a Swiss registered UCI WorldTour cycling team, managed by former French road race champion Serge Beucherie. The title sponsor is IAM Independent Asset Management SA, a Swiss investment management company. And now they are gone. Poof.
In Wednesday's Cycling Podcast from stage 17 of the Giro d’Italia to Cassano d'Adda, Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe analyse an intriguing day of racing, with Roger Kluge of IAM Cycling taking the stage. Kluge's well-timed attack in the last kilometre denied Filippo Pozzato, 'soul sister' to friend of the podcast Ciro Scognamiglio. Ciro naturally insisted on congratulating Pozzato in person for a fine if unlucky performance - & we were there to witness the uproarious scenes. The general classification remains unchanged, with Steven Kruijswijk still in the pink jersey. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport & Eurosport.

In Tuesday's Cycling Podcast from stage 16 of the Giro d’Italia to Andalo, Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe pick apart a scintillating day of racing, culminating in Alejandro Valverde's victory over race leader Steven Kruijswijk. Short, mountainous & coming after a rest-day, today's 132km stage into the Dolomiti di Brenta was always likely to be aggressively raced. So it proved, as a flurry of attacks at the top of the Passo della Mendola unhinged Esteban Chaves & looked set to presage further moves on the climb to Fai della Paganella. They duly arrived, with Ilnur Zakarin, Valverde & Kruijswijk finally pulling away to contest the stage victory in a sprint, Chaves recovering, & Vincenzo Nibali losing more time. We hear from Chaves, his directeur sportif Matt White, Nibali's coach Paolo Slongo, Zakarin's team manager Viatcheslav Ekimov, one of Kruijswijk's keen lieutenants Jos Van Emden, & our resident Italian national treasure, Ciro Scognamiglio.

Matthew Hayman wins the 2016 Paris-Roubaix -Photo. G Watson] So this is the big one! I am speaking with 2016 Paris Roubaix winner Matt Hayman. I caught up with him 1 month after on training camp up in the high mountains in Andorra. A very un-roubaix environment but the memory was still very fresh and vibrant. I get quite excited this week as I hear the story the first time myself, so will have to excuse some of the colourful language. I hope you enjoy it, I certainly did! https://lifeinthepeloton.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/matt-hayman-the-day-after-roubaix-2.m4a
May 23 | It's rest day on the Giro d'Italia, so it's the perfect time for a pausa caffè – or coffee break. The relationship between cycling and coffee is well-established. After all, who doesn't love a good cup of coffee during or after a bike ride? Kilometre 0 is supported by Science of Sport.
In the latest episode of The Cycling Podcast from the Giro d’Italia, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe are joined by former rider Dan Lloyd and journalist Ned Boulting to discuss the stage 15 mountain time trial from Castelrotto to Alpe di Siusi in the Dolomites. The identity of the stage winner was a surprise – 24-year-old Russian Alexandre Foliforov who rides for the Gazprom-Rusvelo team. It was Foliforov’s first grand tour stage win and it came by the narrowest of margins, less than a second from the race leader Steven Kruijswijk. The Dutchman, who took the pink jersey on Saturday, extended his lead and now has an advantage of two minutes and 12 seconds from Colombian Esteban Chaves. But it was a bad day for Vincenzo Nibali, the 2013 Giro champion. He was already losing time to Kruijswijk and Chaves when he had a mechanical problem with his bike on the climb. His chain slipped, he stopped to try to sort it out himself but then had to take a spare bike. At the start of the day, he ...
In Saturday's Cycling Podcast from stage 14 of the Giro d’Italia to Corvara, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe revisit the key action on a sublime day of racing against an awe-inspiring Dolomite backdrop.

Dutch reporter Daan Hakkenberg joins Lionel & Daniel to assess Kruijswijk's chances of taking the maglia rosa all the way to Turin. We hear from Vincenzo Nibali's Astana team-mate, Jakob Fuglsang, and get the latest instalments of our Giro regulars, The Shark's Tale, & Pédaleur de Charme.

In Friday's Cycling Podcast from stage 13 of the Giro d’Italia to Cividale del Friuli, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe dissect the key action on a day that saw Mikel Nieve claim victory & Andrey Amador the pink jersey. Nieve is cycling's super sub, a man who excels when his team finds itself battling adversity, as was the case this week with Team Sky as they lost Mikel Landa to illness. Lionel & Daniel discuss this, Saturday's Dolomite blockbuster to Corvara, & a shocking admission from Filippo Pozzato. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport & Eurosport.
May 20 | This weekend, the Giro d’Italia heads for the peaks which more than any other have inspired its marketing tagline: “The toughest race in the world’s most beautiful place.” Jagged, luminous, majestic, the Dolomites premiered in the 1937 race and since then have become central to the Giro’s allure. And yet they also remain mysterious, not only by virtue of their ancient myths and legends but also, more simply, in terms of where and what exactly they are. In this episode of Kilometre Zero, Daniel Friebe, the author of Mountain High and Mountain Higher, takes us on a journey into the “Pale Mountains” on the eve of the Giro’s Dolomite blockbuster to Corvara and the mountain time-trial to Alpe di Siusi.

In this Quick Tip Victor answers the listener question “what is your number one piece of advice for a beginner cyclist and your number one piece of advice for an experienced cyclist?” Victor’s top piece of advice to beginner cyclists: don’t worry about speed, don’t worry about distance, don’t focus on equipment. Focus on developing a smooth pedal stroke at a high RPM. Breaking bad habits is hard, so getting this right from the beginning can give you an advantage. Victor’s top piece of advice to experienced cyclists: don’t obsess about equipment. Make sure you focus on form, technique, and break up your training and shake things up with things outside your normal routine. Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Paris Roubaix is a cobbled stone classic one day race, it is one of the 5 memorials races in the year. It is a spectacle, it is a tough mans race. It is the best race of the year. It is my favourite race. Matt Hayman has ridden Paris Roubaix 15 times in his career, he is a specialist to say the least. This is his favourite race too. 2016 Roubaix was a special day for Matt, I was able to get his thoughts the night before, the night before he knew what the 2016 addition was going to be. https://lifeinthepeloton.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/matt-hayman-part1-the-night-before.m4a Hang in there, part 2 is coming real soon..
The Giro d’Italia’s 12th stage ended with a sprint finish in Bibione, along the coast from Venice, where the German Andre Greipel took his third win of the race on his last day before going home. Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe are joined by VeloNews correspondent Andy Hood, who first covered the Giro d’Italia in 1996, and La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Ciro Scognamiglio to discuss the day’s action and look forward to the mountains. Greipel’s victory strengthened his hold on the red points jersey but after an early-season affected by injury, he always planned to pull out of the Giro after 12 stages to prepare for the Tour de France. We ask whether that’s disrespectful towards the race. We hear from second-placed Caleb Ewan, whose inexperience perhaps told in the finish against Greipel. And we look at the battle for the overall lead, which will hot up now. Can Bob Jungels cling onto the pink jersey? Will Movistar’s Andrey Amador and Alejandro Valverde – who are second and third overall – ...
In Wednesday's Cycling Podcast from stage 11 of the Giro d’Italia to Asolo, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe analyse a second Diego Ulissi stage win & an eventful day in the battle for the pink jersey. Billed as a mere 'transitional stage', the 227km northward journey from Modena allowed overnight leader, Bob Jungels, to gain further time on race favourites Vincenzo Nibali & Alejandro Valverde. Lionel & Daniel hear from Nibali, who attacked in vain on the penultimate climb of the day, & Ciro Scognamiglio also delivers his typically idiosyncratic verdict on the Sicilian's tactics. There are interviews with Steven Kruijswijk, Tom Dumoulin & Leigh Howard, who spent some of the stage sloshing around in a roadside ditch. The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport and Eurosport.

In the latest Cycling Podcast from the Giro d’Italia, Daniel Friebe steps in for self-styled team captain Richard Moore, joining Lionel Birnie to digest the events of stage 10. It was a dramatic day, too, with Gianluca Brambilla relinquishing his pink jersey to team-mate Bob Jungels, Team Sky’s Mikel Landa withdrawing through illness, and the second youngest rider in the race, 21-year-old Giulio Ciccone, claiming victory in Sestola. We hear from Landa’s directeur sportif, Dario Cioni, about the Basque’s problems and Team Sky’s chances of somehow regrouping between here and the grand finale in Turin. The Katusha boss, Viatcheslav Ekimov, sets the record straight on his team’s controversial decision to remove Alexey Tsatevich from the Giro, MotoGP pilot Cal Crutchlow drops in on the Corsa Rosa, and Lionel and Daniel take a whimsical detour to the former home of a ghost of Giri past.

There are interviews with Mikel Landa, the Team Sky leader, and, after a rough couple of days for the former pink jersey wearer, Tom Dumoulin.

May 13 | This episode of Kilometre 0 focuses on one of the unsung heroes in the peloton, Maarten Tjallingii, who stepped into the spotlight during the Giro d’Italia’s opening weekend in the Netherlands. Tjallingii lives in Arnhem, so he had every incentive to attack during stages two and three. Over the course of stages two and three, he spent more than 350 kilometres off the front. Among his prizes was a day in the Giro’s blue king of the mountains jersey. Let’s meet Maarten Tjallingii. Kilometre 0 at the Giro d’Italia is supported by Science in Sport and Eurosport.

In the latest Cycling Podcast from the Giro d’Italia, Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie are joined by Sophie Smith as they discuss the sixth stage from Ponte to Roccaraso, with the first summit finish. There are interviews with the Orica-GreenEdge sports director Matt White, and with Rory Sutherland of the Movistar team. White was critical of Movistar’s tactics on the treacherous descent of Bocca della Selva: “We had that information [that the descent was dangerous] and Movistar railed the descent, which I was very surprised by,” said White. “They took a lot of risks and I think it was a pretty silly move. There’s no need to take risks. Teams have different tactics. Sometimes it leaves you scratching your head.” We also hear from the Team Sky leader Mikel Landa and there is the latest instalment of The Shark’s Tale, the Vincenzo Nibali story.

Hansen, who turned 35 on Wednesday, tells us that he enjoys riding all three Grand Tours – as he has done for the last five years – and that he has no target in mind. “I enjoy it so I’ll keep going,” he says. “At the moment I’m going good so I’ve no reason to stop.” As well as discussion and analysis of the fifth stage and the race so far, the latest podcast also includes the latest riveting instalment of The Shark’s Tale.

May 11 | To say that Italy is a complicated country would be both an accepted truth & something of an understatement. Officially, Italy has been a united nation since 1861 – but many would argue that its northern & southern halves have never truly learned to cohabit. The Giro & cycling have reflected the division for the 107 years since the race's inception. Can it ever change? Three stages in the deep South this year won't cause a revolution - but they may remind us that it's a battle worth fighting.
