Talking Luft! with Brett Lancaster. S2. E11.

This week I’m Talking Luft with Aussie Brett Lancaster, who was an ex-teammate of mine on Orica-Greenedge, and had a 15 year career as a pro cyclist. He’s now a Director Sportif at Team Ineos.

He’s a good mate of mine, and you might remember hearing him on the podcast when I relived that epic Giro D’Italia TTT stage win with my OGE teammates.

He raced in the days of luft and no helmets so I thought he’d be a perfect guy to sit down over a cold beer and chat caps, racing and everything in between.

I hear about his love for Italy and the Giro, Tafi caps and we chat coffee stops, VBs and training loops.

You’ll also hear a snippet from my episode over on The Cycling Podcast last week with Rapha CEO, Simon Mottram. That was a great chat. If you haven’t heard that, be sure to head over and check it out. It’s a great insight into one of the best cycling brands in the business.

But for now, enjoy my chat with Brett.

We’re taking a break from our episodes at The Cycling Podcast during the TDF as they have you covered with daily episodes. I’ll see you back here in two weeks for another episode of Talking Luft.

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.
