A Tour of Britain Rider, a rival Directeur Sportif, and the Race Director all walk into a podcast… That’s right, it’s the AJ Bell Tour of Britain special. From the massage table, Arkéa–Samsic rider Connor Swift tells Matt Stephens how it feels to ride the 2021 edition of the race, which has seen unseasonably hot weather. We learn all about Cherie Pridham’s penchants for getting locked out of her hotel room, something the Israel Start-Up Nation’s Director Sportif admits is just a small part of her busy day. And Route Director Andy Hawes gives Matt the lowdown on how he creates the perfect parcours - it helps that he’s one of the most dedicated professionals in the business.
