The Rouleur Podcast
Rouleur Conversations - Marcel Kittel, Peter Kennaugh and Pfeiffer Georgi
Everyone knows professional cycling is a tough sport - that’s part of its appeal - but does it place too much of a strain on some of its competitors, and how well does it look after those who struggle? Cycling’s not the only sport facing up to the mental health issues endured by some of its brightest performers. On this podcast we hear the personal stories of two recently retired stars - Marcel Kittel and Peter Kennaugh. And we talk to newly-crowned British champion Pfeiffer Georgi about her brilliant season on the road, and her plans for next year’s Classics.
