Ineos Grenadiers and Israel Start-Up Nation report cards
In this week’s episode of the Cyclingnews podcast there’s an exclusive interview with Daniel Martin from Israel Start-Up Nation while we also continue our WorldTour report cards with Ineos Grenadiers and ISN under the spotlight.   Ineos won the Giro d’Italia with Tao Geoghegan Hart, bombed at the Tour de France and came second in the Vuelta a Espana. They won 19 races in total and obviously the standout ride was the Giro, where they bounced back from losing Geraint Thomas to win seven stages wins and the maglia rosa.   They were well below their typical best at the Tour, were forced into late line-up changes before seeing Egan Bernal falter in the mountains. There was a stage win for Michal Kwiatkowski but in the build up to the Tour they were off the pace in races like the Dauphine and their Classics campaign was quiet, even by their standards. Over at Israel Start-Up Nation the team won two stages in Grand Tours, courtesy of Daniel Martin and Alex Dowsett. They had nine difference winners in fact, and took fourth overall in the Vuelta and while the caliber of their wins wasn’t huge – only two were at WorldTour – the team showed signs of promise and progress.   We analyse both teams’ seasons, before Procycling’s Edward Pickering, who used to be a teacher, hands out grades for each team.   The Cyclingnews Podcast is brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello.

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.

198: The transfer market
In this week's episode Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe talk about cycling's transfer market and the eleventh hour rescue of World Tour team NTT, which will race in 2021 as Qhubeka Assos. As well as discussing the eclectic roster being put together by the African team, we hear from rider agent Gary McQuaid, who looks after Bob Jungels, Adam Yates, Jai Hindley and others, and from one rider who's been left high and dry, James Shaw. Shaw spent two years with Lotto-Soudal and has been trying to get back into the World Tour but is finding it tough. Still just 24, he feels he has a lot to offer and hopes to continue his professional career, but he also has a mortgage to pay and dogs to feed and worries that he is running out of time.  Our supporters The Cycling Podcast is supported by iwoca (https://www.iwoca.co.uk/?utm_source=google-ads&utm_medium=PPC&utm_campaign=1905711499&ad_group=72226008204&target_id=kwd-42576349472&creative=380272393106&match_type=e&device=c&ad_position=&network=g&feed_item_id=&device_b=desktop&network_b=search&interest_location=&click_location=9046030&keyword=iwoca&device_model=&placement=&placement_cat=&gclid=CjwKCAiA17P9BRB2EiwAMvwNyG7LjjUiFXEIJY-HBSKJfyR50-5sKP0zagY3v2vOS6h34Gkoif7WahoCPsAQAvD_BwE) and Science in Sport For 25% off all your Science in Sport products enter the discount code SISCP25 at scienceinsport.com (http://scienceinsport.com/) This episode is also sponsored by Hello Fresh (https://www.hellofresh.co.uk/) .

Ep. 61 - Ted King, FKT on the ARHCR
From 2006 to 2015 Ted King was a professional road cycling before switching to gravel where he took 1st at the DK200 in 2016 and 2018. Earlier this month he completed the 1,000+ mile Arkansas High Country Race in first with a time of 4 days, 20 hours, which was good enough to snag the FKT set by Jay Petervary in June of this year. The ARHCR is no walk in the park either. It may be easy to have your guard down when you see that the highest point on the route is only 2,745 ft. elevation, but in the words of friend and route creator Chuck Campbell "The valleys are low and the grade is steep". I got to preview a portion of the route in February and I got a first hand taste of the steepness. The route is littered with sharp grades going both up or down. There is very little flat sections, in most cases you're either going up or down. On Oct. 31st 2020 twenty ultra-endurance cyclist started from Fayetteville, AR. Racers can choose to go either CW or CCW, but regardless of which direction you go there is still 1,037 miles and over 80,000 ft of climbing through the Ozarks and Ouachitas in NW Arkansas. Of the 20 that started only 7 finished, which in itself is a testament to the toughness of this route. This was Ted's first attempt at an ultra endurance bikepacking event. He didn't have much experience bikepacking either, but that didn't stop him from signing up to tackle a very challenging course. Like many of you, I followed his dot closely to see if his wealth of experience in other disciplines of the sport would transfer over, or if the local Andrew Onermaa would be able to keep the crown away from King. In the end Ted would ultimately grit it out to win by beating out all previous FKT's, but for much of the race Andrew was on his heels never taking the pressure off. He recorded a video shortly after scratching that's worth watching. If you want to know how hard it is, this video scratches the surface of what it takes to compete at a high level against one of hell of a professional cyclist. Ted, congrats on your FKT, welcome to bikepacking! I can't wait to see what you set your sites on in the future.

PYSO, ep. 81: UCI innovation manager Michael Rogers on progress and regulation
The Lugano Charter, constructed in 1996, formed the UCI's basis for regulation of bike technology with a noble ideal: the rider, not his or her access to technology, should determine who wins a bike race. The devil, as always, is in the details. Now, Michael "Mick" Rogers, a three-time world time trial champion, is tasked with guiding the regulation of bicycle equipment and clothing as innovation manager at the UCI. Rogers got his start in big-time racing with Mapei in 2000. He proceeded to have a successful career with Quick-Step, T-Mobile, Team Sky and Saxo-Tinkoff before retiring in 2016. In addition to having world-class physiology, Rogers was also fascinated with the physics and mathematics at play in bike racing, whether that was in the mechanics of a long sprint leadout train, or in the interconnected variables of a fast time trial position. At T-Mobile, which became HTC, Rogers said "we were one of the the teams to really master the leadout train. If we go back into the mid ’90s with [Marco] Cipollini and Saeco, they revolutionized the leadout train. At HTC, we took that that one step further, we started to understand some of the mathematics. We started to understand that when we were riding on the front, with two or three kilometers to go, we're at 60 plus K an hour — the amount of energy that the riders behind us would would need to come up beside Mark Cavendish was going to have a massive effect on the actual sprint." Rogers' real-world studying later included time racing at Team Sky, a team famous for its analysis and methodical racing tactics. Rogers talks about how the team could be so effective when riding in coordination. "It just kind of came down to, we knew what we were good at as riders," Rogers said of being able to reel in breakaways and attacking riders with confidence. "Simple math — when we were riding at our threshold, the power values and very high power to weight ratios. We knew that anyone riding out over that threshold, to be able to open up a large enough gap, the amount of energy required to put in is almost for most people unbearable. When you're attacking on some of these climbs, you might have to ride at 600 650 watts for for 30 to 40 seconds. And there's only a handful of guys that can withstand that kind of intensity for anything longer than a minute. So it's simple math, they're going to come back." Now at the UCI, Rogers and his coworkers are tasked with keeping up to speed with a sport that is changing rapidly. "We are aware that cycling must progress. There must be evolution," Rogers said. How that looks, and how a level playing field can be enforces among teams and nations with varying levels of financial ability, will be an ongoing challenge. Tune in to this episode of Put Your Socks On to hear Rogers' thoughts on the challenges and the excitement of regulating bike racing heading into a new world of cycling.

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
