    Richie Porte’s hopes of Grand Tour victory this year were dashed by a disastrous fall at the Tour de France. He talks us through his view of that crash, his recovery and his return to racing.


    Plus the two Ians – Cleverly and Parkinson – are joined by a real comedian – Michael Smiley. Michael is also an acclaimed actor (Spaced, Luther, Jawbone), a former cycle courier and a cycling fanatic. They talk films, boxing, courier culture, commuting etiquette and, a bit, about bike racing.
