Road captains are leaders but rarely winners. They are usually experienced, but not always. They are a link for communication between sports directors and riders and they need to have detailed knowledge of the course, acting almost as human GPSs.
Now, with ever more information available to riders and sports directors, there is a greater emphasis on clear communication and quick decision making — and on the role of road captain.
In this episode we hear from some road captains and their sports directors, including Mitch Docker, Nikias Arndt, Heinrich Haussler, Sam Bewley, Logan Owen, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Luke Roberts and Dario Cioni.
Kilometre 0 by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Hansgrohe showers & taps.
