Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of A Journey Through the Cycling Year by The Cycling Podcast, read by Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe.

Embark on a journey through the cycling year with The Cycling Podcast, which has been entertaining and informing fans since 2013. 

Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe share their diaries from three incident-filled Grand Tours, the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. These take listeners 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 François Thomazeau, who takes responsiblity for the French Tour de France jinx; Ciro Scognamiglio, with a heartfelt 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, make this the perfect celebration of a year in cycling.

For all cycling addicts

Fantastic to hear all these stories for the cycling year 2017 read by the contributing authors. Thoroughly infused with the personalities we have come to know and love from The Cycling Podcast. I especially enjoyed Richard's on-going food woes and the chapter on Race Radio by Seb Piquet. What do you say, guys, make it an annual tradition????

Great year in review

Great companion to the Cycling Podcast with extra insight into the Grand Tours. Hopefully a yearly publication.

Vintage 2017 - ready for drinking

For English speaking fans the Cycling Podcast was essential listening. At its best it was like sitting next to 3 friends discussing the events of the day. There was insight, humour and a tremendous sense of joie de vivre. Some of the best bits were when they talked about food or wine and almost forgot the cycling altogether.

When Richard Moore died at the age of 48 in 2022 the chemistry was broken. This book, recorded as audio files and then transcribed for print - a reversal of the usual practice - captures some of the magic of Richard, Daniel, Lionel and their friends.
