Rouleur Podcast: issue 61 with Johan Museeuw

Posted on

“We stand up in the morning and we think about cycling. It’s in the blood.” Johan Museeuw, triple Tour of Flanders winner, tells Rouleur what makes a Flandrian.

Three times winner of the Ronde Van Vlaanderen, three times winner of Paris-Roubaix, world champion and twice World Cup champion; Johan Museeuw is our guide to the two finest races of the year… probably.

 

The Flemish cycling superstar nicknamed the ‘Lion of Flanders’ (De Leeuw Van Vlaanderen) tells Ian Parkinson what makes a Flandrian cyclist and why cycling is written into the Flemish people’s DNA.

 

Now 50, he also discusses his cycling academy, tips for riding the cobbles and his opinion on modern cycling’s current crop of Classics riders.

“We have that beautiful picture of Tom Boonen on the Koppenberg. It’s a more difficult hill than the Muur Van Geraardsbergen and he’s riding in the middle. Thats the way to ride it.

 

“I know the Koppenberg and he has a good position. If you’re at the front you can do what you want. But it’s really not so easy to do that.”

    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics
    to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

  36. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to
    send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog
    you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I

  37. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and
    wanted to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  38. I heard what you have to say! You bring up an excellent point and I’ve wondered the same thing. I think comments are definitely heard even when it is a busy conversation. Even if the author does not have the bandwidth to respond to every single comment, other commenters that are subscribed can jump into the conversation like you and I are doing now.
    One thing I’ve always wondered is… why don’t more commenters get into discussions with other commenters? There are so many good points to expand on in a lively conversation.

  39. I agree. I’d love to see more interaction between commenters to keep the conversation bubbling along.
    you’re right about the difference between those wanting to add to the conversation and those who are just looking for traffic. Read through any long thread of comments and you’ll generally find a number of people restating what’s already been said. It shows that they had little interest in being part of what’s going on and more interest in just being seen to have their say.

  40. As far as generating comments, as your post says, the conclusion is vitally important. I remember hearing from a radio broadcast expert who taught that the very first thing you should think about is the final line of what you want to say on air. That’s what causes the listener to think, “me too”, involving them in what you’ve said.
    Then you design a creative way to start what you want to say to grab attention. Finally, all you need to do is write just enough in between to get your listeners from your attention grabber to the ‘kicker’.

  41. That’s probably badly explained in just a paragraph but hopefully you get the idea.
    I think the conversation between bloggers in the comments sections is a really undervalued thing. I read an interesting note in a post at ConversationAgent.com the other day about how a Valeria met a good blogging colleague – in the comments section of another blog.

  42. I think the admin of this web site is really working hard in support
    of his website, for the reason that here every material is quality based stuff.

  43. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very
    internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice
    would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
