These take readers behind the scenes and explore the culture and landscape as well as the racing, while the `Lionel of Flanders', complete with beer recommendations, does the same for the Classics in Belgium. There are appearances, too, by leading journalists and podcast favourites Francois Thomazeau, who takes responsiblity for the French Tour de France jinx, Ciro Scognamiglio, with a hearfelt love letter to cult favourite Filippo Pozzato, Fran Reyes, who pens a farewell to El Pistolero, Alberto Contador, and Orla Chennaoui, who hits the road to cover La Course in a one-woman karaoke-booth-on-wheels. Further contributions from professional riders Ashleigh Moolman Pasio and Joe Dombrowski and the voice of the Tour de France, Sebastien Piquet, as well as stunning galleries from the podcast world's first and only dedicated photographer, Simon Gill, make this the perfect celebration of a year in cycling.
