Talking Luft! With Tsgabu Grmay. S2. E10

This week I’m Talking Luft with Ethiopian, and legend of a guy, Tsgabu Grmay, who rides for Team BikeExchange.

In case you missed it, I heard his story last week on The Cycling Podcast. He’s a super inspirational guy, and as you’ll hear, it’s hard not to love him. His positive attitude and fun loving personality is infectious and I came away from that chat feeling more motivated than ever.

But today we’re keeping it short, we’re Talking Luft – we’re talking cap style, training loops, coffee stops, a whole lot of bread and a side of beer.

We had some great laughs recording this and in true Tsgabu style he left me feeling inspired as he reflected on everything riding a bike has brought him.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Theme Music

The theme music for Life in the Peloton was composed by Pete Shelley, who was lead singer of the punk band Buzzcocks. It was commissioned by the production company behind Channel 4’s coverage of the Tour de France in the 1980s and was used as the theme music for the nightly highlights show. Pete died in December 2018. We were given permission by Pete’s widow and his manager to continue using the music for the theme tune to Life in the Peloton. To hear more about the music, listen to the Andre Greipel episode of Life in the Peloton.
