3: Presenting Jumbo-Visma 2021
This week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast comes from the Team Jumbo-Visma training camp in Alicante, Spain. Richard Moore and Orla Chennaoui spent a few days with the world’s number one ranked team as they prepared for and looked ahead to the 2021 season. We hear from Marianne Vos, who will lead the new women’s team, Wout van Aert, Tom Dumoulin, Steven Kruijswijk, Sepp Kuss, Tobias Foss and Primoz Roglic, as well as team boss Richard Plugge and sporting director Merijn Zeeman. Van Aert explains why he has agreed to three more years with the team, Dumoulin discusses his Classics ambitions, and we hear who will lead Jumbo-Visma at the three Grand Tours.  We also look back on 2020 and a Tour de France that looked to be theirs until Roglic’s defeat to Tadej Pogacar on the penultimate day. What happened at La Planche des Belles Filles, did Jumbo-Visma make any mistakes over the three weeks of a Tour in which they were the strongest team, and how can they try and ensure it doesn’t happen again?  The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca and Science in Sport For 25% off all your Science in Sport products go to http://scienceinsport.com and enter the code SISCP25 at the checkout This episode is sponsored by Babbel, the language learning app. With Babbel you can choose from 14 different languages, including, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.

Ep. 62 - Kait boyle, FKT on the kokopelli
On the morning of Christmas Eve 2018 Kait Boyle was at the height of her ultra endurance racing career, having won the 24 hour World Championship in 2018 and set a new record on the AZT 300. Her life would take an unexpected turn later that day when she was involved in a horrific vehicular accident that left her with a long list of injuries and a long path to recovery. Like many of you, I watch her social media feed for months as she dedicated herself to rehabilitation and ultimately back to fitness. * * * Almost a 2 years, and a pandemic later, she finally found herself at the top podium again. This time in the form of an FKT on the Kokopelli Trail. On Nov. 6th, 2020 Lael Wilcox, Kurt Refsnider, and Kait all met in Moab at the start line of the Kokopelli, each of them on ITT's with FKT's on the mind. Kait was able to finish with a time of 13 hrs, 7 mins, which was good enough to beat the long standing time set by Rebecca Rush by 25 minutes. In doing so, she answered 2 years of questions and uncertainty. She was equally rewarded for her hard work, perseverance, and PATIENCE. As a personal fan, I remember cringing seeing the gruesome pics from her crash and injuries. It was hard to watch, I can't imagine how hard it was to live. * * Pictures courtesy of Rugile Kaladyte In addition to her accomplishments on the bike she is also the Co-Founder of Bikepacking Roots, which supports and advances bikepacking, the growth of a diverse bikepacking community, and access to and the conservation of the landscapes and public lands through which we ride. Her contributions on and off the bike are both impressive and valuable to this community that we all love. It was great to share in this milestone with her and hear about her journey over the past couple of years. Kait, congrats on the FKT, and we look forward to rooting for you in future races. You can learn more about Kait on her website or follow her on social media.

Episode 69: Winter Riding -- Tips and Tricks from Laura and Ted King
Your Guide for a Great Winter Ride! This is a special one, welcome to King of the Ride podcast. Here we have return guest/sometimes-co-host Laura King and Ted talk about how to optimize your cold weather riding. You asked, we answered. After more than 1000 questions came pouring in, Laura and I summarized them and answer them today in this podcast. Here in Vermont, where the sun rises at lunchtime and sets a few minutes later, we need to make the most of our riding window and that takes lots of hardware, software, and just the right equipment. Here are some products mentioned in this podcast: Velocio is the only clothing we use. From stifling hot to frigid cold, there is NO better clothing out there. Alternating piping hot Ginger Mapleaid and Lemon Tea Mapleaid from UnTapped in a vacuum bottle is a definite. Bar Mitts are our dropbar bike hand covering of choice, now with Extreme Cold models. 45NRTH is our go-to for winter riding boots. Their Ragnarok are good MTB shoes for the slush and their Wolfgar are great in the deep frozen tundra. We also use their Cobrafist for arctic riding on a flat bar bike. Planet Bike SpeedEZ are the fenders currently on my bike. SKS Xtra Dry fender is currently on Laura's bike. Rene Herse Hurricane Ridge tires when I need some tread. Otherwise their Barlow Pass or Snoqualmie Pass are totally fine -- wide and supple. 45NRTH Dillinger 5 are 5" studded tires for fat biking. More questions? Send them to @iamtedking or @lauracameronking.
