The Cycling Podcast / Wheels of (Mis)fortune

The Cycling Podcast / Wheels of (Mis)fortune

In this week’s episode of The Cycling Podcast, we take you inside one of the more dramatic and harrowing stories of the 2023 season – a crash that abruptly ended one rider’s realistic chance of winning the Giro d’Italia, his season and also his seven-year career with the team that, as a teenager, he had dreamed of one day joining. 

That rider is Tao Geoghegan Hart – and he is also our guest and Daniel Friebe’s conversation partner this week. We hear about the initial trauma of the accident, the ordeal of the days that followed and the slow and sometimes tedious battle to regain fitness. In addition, Tao looks ahead to his new start with Lidl-Trek and nominates some of his heroes and heroines of 2023.
