    Rapha Race Radio

    Roadside dispatches from the best bike races in the world

    21 July 2018

    Bike racing is bonkers. It is a sport as beautiful as it is ugly, as exciting as it is boring, as pure as it is tainted. And that’s why we love it.

    This year, Rapha is going to take you roadside at the world’s biggest races, sending a team out to follow the professional sport in the most unprofessional way possible.

    Filmed with the fans, we’ll drink with the Belgians at Flanders, take a shower in Roubaix, paint mountain roads in the Alps, and see whatever other mischief we can get up to (preferably without being arrested).

    We’ll show you the best and the worst of the sport, taking you beyond the existing coverage to celebrate moments of heroism and panache, criticise the ills and excess, and ignore everything in between.

    And, for one final treat each episode, we’ll be calling on the help of former Spring Classics legend Juan Antonio Flecha to tell us what the races are really like.

    This is Rapha Race Radio. Unlicensed, unofficial, very often unrepeatable in print. By the end of the season, we’ll have 20 episodes, a clapped out campervan and a clapped out crew in desperate need of some performance enhancement.

    Over and out.


    All episodes


    Three fans and one legend.


    Harry loves Lance Armstrong, Jan Ullrich, and Alexandre Vinokourov. Or at least he did when he was a teenager falling in love with the sport. Harry doesn’t have heroes anymore.


    Stuart doesn’t write about himself in the third person. [He’s a bearded Scot who once enjoyed the dubious honour of modelling alongside 2006 Tour de France runner-up winner Oscar Pereiro – Ed.]


    A Scouser* with a gin habit, Kitty knows absolutely nothing about pro bike racing. But she’s enthusiastic. * Affectionate term for people from Liverpool.

    Juan Antonio

    One of the great classics riders of his generation, and now the most charming man on cycling TV for Eurosport. Doesn’t realise what he’s letting himself in for.
