21. The King Sean Kelly on being one of the greatest of all time and why he should have won the Tour de France .
Play • 1 hr 29 min
Our guest on the show this week is the King, Sean Kelly.

159 career wins, nine Monuments, one Grand Tour, seven consecutive Paris-Nice, countless other big races, Kelly is one of the greatest road cyclists of all time.

James and Joe talk to Sean about that immensely successful career and being ranked the second greatest cyclist ever behind Eddy Merckx, never having to pay for his own pint in Ireland and being recognised in the street, his notoriously strict eating habits including banning bread from his diet, Tour of Flanders and rainbow jersey regrets, that insane Poggio descent in 1992 and why he should have won the Tour de France.

We also chat with Sean about the peloton's current crop and ask which rider from today reminds of him most and whether he really did get left behind by his team once.

Joe talks about Zwift at the top of the show, we have a guide to the training app/game here - https://www.cyclist.co.uk/tutorials/4206/zwift-top-tips-on-how-to-make-the-most-of-the-virtual-app
