Mitch Docker – Svein Tuft turns the Mic on Me

Well, it’s time to wrap up the season, both in cycling and Life In The Peloton.

I’ve been asked a couple of times when someone might turn the microphone on me to tell my story. And when out adventuring with my good mate Svein Tuft, he asked if he could do me the honour. I thought, who better to be interviewed by?

And so our closing episode for 2020 is my story.

Svein has a unique way of asking the right questions while also having a great knack for listening.

I really enjoyed being on the other side of the mic this time, as he takes me right back to my beginning, where I’ve come from and who has influenced me and made me into who I am today.

This was a great chance for me to reflect on my career up until now, and a chance to talk about what the road might look like ahead.

I hope you enjoy this little insight.

For now, it’s time for some beers and family time before we come back in 2021 with a new racing and podcast season, with Life in the Peloton and Talking Luft returning in February.
