The Cycling Podcast at the World Championships

Royal Hall - Friday 27th September

Where are we Lionel? On stage at the Royal Hall...

The Cycling Podcast brings its unique blend of analysis, insight and humour to the World Championships.

For six years award-winning and best-selling cycling authors and journalists Lionel Birnie, Richard Moore and Daniel Friebe have been providing weekly updates from the world of cycling - covering men and women’s road racing with a smattering of diversions into track, cycle-cross and touring/exploring. They have also reported daily from the three grand tours - providing an unparalleled level of insight into the tactics, trials and tribulations of life inside the peloton whilst giving their listeners a flavour of the sights, sounds and tastes of life on the road for the journalists covering these races.

The Cycling Podcast has won the bronze medal for all sports podcasts at the British Podcast Awards, been awarded best podcast at the Cycling Media Awards and grown to a listenership of more than 100,000 during the grand tours.

For this very special one-off show at the World Championships, Lionel, Richard and Daniel will be joined by colleagues and further special guests to be named later.

Richard Moore is a former Scottish Commonwealth Games cyclist whose first book, In Search of Robert Millar, won Best Biography at the 2008 British Sports Book Awards. His other books include Heroes, Villains & Velodromes, Slaying the Badger, Sky’s the Limit and Étape.
