Rouleur Conversations Podcast: Issue 20.7 with Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker and Chris Jones

 We have three fascinating, erudite guests on the latest podcast, and Desire editor Stuart Clapp too. Only joshing, Stu…

Olympic team pursuiters Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald were interviewed by Hannah Dines for the latest Rouleur issue, and an excellent feature it is too. Waiting for a postponed Olympics, getting back to racing, mental health and explaining the Madison via the works of Shakespeare – Katie and Elinor cover it all in typically engaging style.  

Elinor BarkerBaltimore cyclist Chris Jones’s superb essay in issue 20.7 is another highlight. He tells Ian Parkinson about the experience of riding the city streets as a Black man in America, racial divides, very gradual improvement and freeing the mind via the bike. Essential listening.

Our Stu was understandaly emotional at the weekend, as a young man from Hackney most of us here at Rouleur Towers have known since he was skinny little kid working in a bike shop, won the Giro d’Italia. Stuart has a nice little anecdote about Tao Geoghegan Hart and what a decent chap he is – of course he does. Brings a tear to the eye.
