With the Tour de France due to kick off in London in just a few weeks, I’ve decided to re-issue my first ever podcast. I recorded it at the official launch of the Grand Depart 2007. It was originally broadcast on 9th February 2006 as the first podcast from ‘Cycling: News & Views’. This podcast later morphed into Quickrelease.tv.

The podcast – available only on iTunes – features interviews of Phil Liggett; author and rock legend Johnny Green; Olympic gold medallist Chris Boardman; CTC chair Kevin Mayne, and a bunch of bike journalists.
