Editor Guy Andrews and photographer Taz Darling join host Jack Thurston to talk about the current issue of the magazine. The discussion starts with a new Rouleur book about Fausto Coppi written by Herbie Sykes. The book is brimming with extraordinary photographs of Coppi, many previously unpublished. Taz and Guy discuss Coppi the bike racer, the style icon and debate his controversial relationship with la dama bianca.
Guy also talks about his story of how the British bike company Genesis is reviving steel as a material for professional race bikes. Jack interviews Maxine Peake who has written and stars in a new radio play about the life of British cycling great Beryl Burton.
