Video : Tom Pidcock : STEPPING UP TO ELITE

Tom Pidcock’s rise has been something that’s intrigued me quite a bit over the last while. Earmarked as the next great white hope of British Cycling since he was an U16, he has followed his own path. And I’ve wondered over the last year or so if the puff has gone out of his hype train. With the likes of Evenpoel, Simmons, Eekhoff, etc all stepping up as such young ages I had wondered was the value diminshing in his stature.

This video gives a good insight into his background, and into his makeup and has made me question my assesment of him. If you have the time, it’s certainly worth the watch

Episode 48 – 2019 Season Review – Part 1

Finally it’s the Flammecast & Velocast Cross over you’ve had nightmares about. Derek is joined by both John & Scott and they take a rose tinted look back at the first half of the 2019 Season. They discuss the classics, the rise of Wout Van Aert, Mathieu Van der Poel and the transition in sprinting. They also look at Team Ineos, Bernal and all associated with that.

It’s funny after this Podcast was recorded two things happened. The first was that Fat Elvis sacked his Coach and secondly Brian Holm basically confirmed what we were discussing in the Podcast about Deceunick Quickstep. Required reading after this podcast are these three articles.
