Geraint Thomas is used to spending hours in the saddle but even he admits his latest challenge is a tough one.
He’s riding the turbo in his garage for three 12-hour shifts to raise money for the NHS. No team cars, no domestiques and no post-ride massages – but plenty of supporters joining him on Zwift. Ian Parkinson asks how he’s coping and whether he’s up for a delayed Tour De France in late August.
We also hear from Danish journalist Emil Foget – who wrote Rouleur 20.2’s story on cardiac arrhythmia in cyclists. Listen to the podcast long read version here.
Managing editor Ian Cleverly appeals for subscribers to help the magazine survive the coming months and Stuart Clapp, the king of Desire, talks cycling books before taking his top off and sharing his Heinrich Haussler obsession. Thankfully, there are no photos.
