PYSO, ep. 75: Ryder Hesjedal on his rollercoaster Giro d’Italia win
55 min
The Giro d’Italia is in full swing, and what a race it’s been. The unpredictable nature of the Italian grand tour this year reminds Bobby and Gus of another remarkable year, where Ryder Hesjedal took and lost and took the pink jersey, finally winning the overall in a nail biter of a final time trial. So we rang up Ryder to hear about that year at the the Giro, and to get some insight into his interesting career in professional cycling.

Ryder got his start in bike racing with mountain biking in his native Canada in the ’90s. By the time he was 15, he was racing the MTB world championships.

A stint with the Rabobank development road team led to a contract with U.S. Postal Service — which he used in part as training for mountain biking en route to the Olympics.

After some trial and error, Ryder found his sweet spot with Jonathan Vaughters’ Slipstream team, where he enjoyed being a driving force in the scrappy upstart squad.

An excellent 2011 year saw him finish seventh overall in the UCI rankings, and with the team’s directive to focus on the Giro for 2012. Here is the story of how he did exactly that.

It’s time to Put Your Socks On.

Life Beyond the Peloton with Jamie Anderson & Bernard Moerman
In this special Telstra Connected Cycling webinar we are joined by Belgian cycling legend Bernard Moerman and Professor Jamie Anderson to talk about the theme of transitions. We explore why so many professional cyclists struggle with transitioning to a life after the peloton. On the flipside,  we also talk about how a bunch of former Australian professional cyclists have found their way into influential positions in the European cycling scene. In the last part of the interview we chat about the phenomenon of “Corporate Athletes” who throw themselves back into competitive sport after a long hiatus – and why doing so can help people to thrive in so many aspects of their lives. Based in Belgium, Bernard Moerman is a leadership mentor, career coach and storyteller who helps people to realise their inner potential. Prior to shifting his focus to working with business leaders, he spent more than two decades as a talent scout & manager, performance coach and Professional Cycling Team Director. See Bernard’s recent TED Talk here: https://youtu.be/p68eKVnu5_w  Jamie Anderson is Professor of Leadership & Strategic Management at Antwerp Management School, an executive coach and mentor to many former professional cyclists. Jamie is also a competitive Masters cyclist who has achieved podium results at UCI World Series Granfondo Events and many other world-level one-day and multi-day races for amateurs. Living in Belgium, he is currently European Masters Champion (M5) for the Individual Time Trial.  See Jamie’s TED Talk about work, life & cycling here: https://youtu.be/tmc6HohWVCs

29: Daniel Holloway: Surviving the Six Days
Daniel Holloway is a professional cyclist who races for Texas Roadhouse and is a 20 x US National Champion, a Pan Am Games gold medalist, and a member of the US National Long team for the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo. I met Daniel when he was a junior racing on the track, sometime around 2004. Years later, when I had the opportunity to race some of the European six days, I needed a partner, and Daniel ended up being the man for the job. He was one of the youngest riders in the field at our first Six Day in Dortmund, and I was one of the older riders in the peloton. I think it is quite accurate to say we really had no idea what the hell we were doing. Together we stumbled our way through 4 seasons of racing Sixes, World Cups, and World Championships together. We had wins, crashes, DNF’s, lots of laughs, and one moment that was pretty close to a fistfight. I thought having Daniel on the show would be the perfect excuse to tell some entertaining stories, and also to help my audience understand the archaic and iconic world of European Six Day racing.  Texas Roadhouse Cycling Team | Elite Bicycle Racing Team https://texasroadhousecycling.com PEZ Talk: Six Day Man Colby Pearce – PezCycling News https://pezcyclingnews.com/amp/interviews/pez-talk-six-day-man-colby-pearce/ The Time Capsule: Colby Pearce - An American Team in the Six Days https://www.veloveritas.co.uk/2011/02/11/colby-pearce-time-capsule/ Six Day Cycling - Hong Kong 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aoN8XDHM4c
