Tao seals stunning Giro win - and Brad speaks exclusively to Britain's new superstar
Play • 42 min

Sunday witnessed another remarkable moment in the history of British cycling as Tao Geoghegan Hart won the Giro d'Italia for Ineos Grenadiers, seeing off Jai Hindley in the final time trial in Milan after going into Stage 21 level on time.

Tao becomes the fifth Brit to win a Grand Tour, a run started by Brad and carried on by Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome and Simon Yates. We hear the interview Tao conducted with Brad during The Breakaway after his stunning victory on the streets of Milan.

Brad and Graham reflect on a wonderful achievement for the Londoner, the relationship he has with Brad and the qualities which make him so special.

Ineos Grenadiers managed to bag GC as well as seven stages despite losing G early on in the race, with Filippo Ganna picking up the final stage to round off a stunning Grand Tour. But special praise is reserved for Rohan Dennis too after his herculean efforts to bring Tao to the title.

We look back on a quite unforgettable Giro - but let's not forget another big British talent, Hugh Carthy, who is now second on GC in the Vuelta...

We are back next weekend for the latest on the Spanish Grand Tour.

Ep 93: Peak Zwift, Coco is Cara! Zwift Power + all the Zwifty chat
A new episode for a New Year - and 2021 has dawned with, as usual, lots of Zwift news and developments for the Zwiftcasters to discuss.The trio start off with an exploration of the possible reasons why Simon’s very favourite pacer bot may have had an identity change. Coco is now Cara! But why? Simon has a theory. The podcasters move on to discuss the big new Peak Zwift - with more than 46,000 users on the platform concurrently the growth of Zwift over the past year can now be quantified, using this public metric. Up from a mere 16,000 concurrent users at the same point last year, Simon, Shane and Zwift celebrate the achievement whilst also exploring what it all means. Just in time for the Tour de Zwift’s six remaining stages, the game’s developers think they may have found a possible bug which could explain why some users (previously described by the chaps as “potato-owners”) have hit problems riding big events. Are potatoes off the hook? The Zwiftcasters chime in. A high profile departure from Zwift of a respected event organiser seems to have focussed some attention on the event management system - is a new hire at Zwift, combined with the drama of the departure, an answer to some of the gripes Event Organisers have? And Zwift Power has been having a tough time recently - Glen Knight, one half of the service’s inventors tries to shed light on what may be happening. Plus all the usual other Zwift news and chat! We hope you enjoy listening.

2: Life in the Peloton – Heinrich Haussler
It's great to be back for another season of Life in the Peloton and for my first episode of the new year I caught up with someone I've been wanting to get on the pod for a long time. It's the German Aussie Heinrich Haussler. Even though I've known him a long time, there were so many things I wanted to talk to Heino about. For a start, is he German or is he Australian? He won the Aussie champs and has ridden for Australia but he moved to Germany in his early teens and much of his development in cycling was thanks to the German system. We also talked about some of his biggest wins, particularly his stage win in the 2009 Tour de France and towards the end of the pod I asked him why, in his mid-30s, he's started racing cyclo-cross. This is the first podcast of 2021 and the plan is very much the same as last year. Life in the Peloton will be released fortnightly here on The Cycling Podcast feed and in between there'll be an episode of Talking Luft over on the original Life in the Peloton feed. If you missed any of last year's episodes and need to catch up, there's a link to the 2020 playlist below. In the meantime, sit back and listen to Heino and I hope you enjoy it.

It was commissioned by the production company behind Channel 4’s coverage of the Tour de France in the 1980s and was used as the theme music for the nightly highlights show. Pete died in December 2018. We were given permission by Pete’s widow and his manager to continue using the music for the theme tune to Life in the Peloton. To hear more about the music, listen to the Andre Greipel episode of Life in the Peloton.
