Talking Luft! with Hugh Carthy. Ep 16.

This week I’m Talking Luft with Brit Hugh Carthy.

We’re a week in at the Vuelta and he’s riding like a demon, currently 4th on GC.

We sat down on the first rest day to chat cap style, beverages, training loops and he tells a true peloton war story from that day of golf ball sized hail at the Tour de France this year.

It was a great cruisey chat, I hope you enjoy it.

And stay tuned to The Cycling Podcast next week as I’m getting Hugh back on the podcast to hear more about his story and answer your Vuelta questions, so send them in!

Cheers,

Mitch

Valgren interview and report cards for NTT and EF Pro Cycling
In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello, we speak to Michael Valgren about his 2020 season, his time at NTT Pro Cycling and his move to EF Pro Cycling ahead of next year’s campaign.   The Danish rider spent two years on the African team and never quite managed to replicate the 2018 form that saw him win Amstel Gold Race but he talks about his motivation, why things didn’t work out and how he will fit into EF Pro Cycling’s roster. As well as hearing from Valgren, we also start our yearly report card analysis of the WorldTour teams and as Valgren features – and because there’s no real method – we start by taking a look at both NTT and EF.   NTT actually started the season incredibly well. They came into 2020 with arguably one of the weakest rosters of the WorldTour teams but they won six races by the time Paris-Nice concluded. They dominated a number of online races during lockdown but once racing resumed they struggled. Giacomo Nizzolo won the European Championships and Ben O’Connor took a fine stage in the Giro d’Italia but there was very little for them to celebrate.   They ended the year with eight wins but the season was really dominated by sponsorship issues and once more the underperformance of several key riders. Sponsorship issues created uncertainty and tension between the management before Assos stepped in to help the team going forward. We analyze the season for NTT, before Procycling’s editor Edward Picking – a former teacher no less – provides the team with a report card grade.   Then we head to EF, and the American team that went from 17 wins in 2019 to 17 wins this year. There was no Monument win this time around but the team were aggressive in every format of racing – they won stages in all three Grand Tours and finished on the podium in the Vuelta a España. They also won the Critérium du Dauphiné with one of the best days of racing we saw all year, and even if you strip out the wins they took outside of the WorldTour – for example, the wins in Colombia – they were impressive. Our presenters look back on the year for the team before Mr Pickering provides his end of season grade.   The Cyclingnews Podcast is brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello.    Sponsor message   Born in the Italian Dolomites, Sportful has been making athletes faster, more efficient and better protected since 1972.   Official apparel supplier to Bora-Hansgrohe.

2020 – A year like no other | Hugh Carthy the complete package but will EF back him for GC in 2021?
Brad and Graham are back and joined by living legend Sean Kelly for the last episode of the Bradley Wiggins Show this year to dissect a season like no other.  The trio deliberate on the truncated racing calendar with Sam Bennett and Tao Geoghegan Hart’s exploits at the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia lauded. King Kelly breaks down his nerves as protégé Bennett sealed Champs-Élysées glory.   Primoz Roglic, who saw a maiden Tour de France win agonisingly taken from his grasp by Tadej Pogačar, bounced back to claim a consecutive Vuelta a España to continue an astounding few years.   Elsewhere, Hugh Carthy was the latest breakthrough act in a season of breakthroughs, and Brad calls the Lancashire rider the finished package, who has a genuine chance of winning a Grand Tour. However, will EF Pro Cycling back him?  2012 Tour de France winner Brad expects Team Ineos to bounce back after – despite Giro success – a disappointing season but raises questions over some of the signings the British-based team have made. Chris Froome, who is set to sign with Israel Start-Up Nation for the 2021 season, expects excellence, adds Brad, and his team have made some astute signings to support the seven-times Grand Tour winner as he goes in search of a fifth Tour.  The trio wrap up with their moments of the season and expectations for next year.

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
