Talking Luft! 3.0 with Luke Durbridge

Rapha presents Talking Luft!

Durbo has been on Talking Luft before – both versions 1.0 and 2.0, so this week it’s Talking Luft 3.0 – and I had something a little different lined up for him. A quiz.

It’s Cobbled Classics time, he’s up in Holland getting ready for Paris-Roubaix & I thought I’d test his knowledge on the race & a whole lot more.

Can he name 5 ParisRoubaix cobbled sectors?

Does he know how many metres the Roubaix velodrome is?

Who was best known in the peloton for the cut-off casquette?

Most importantly, I ask him questions about the history of cap style, bikes & beers, plus I throw him some scenarios that aren’t too far from what might happen out on a training ride. 

It’s another week of laughs, because let’s be honest, I really just could chat to him all day. If you haven’t listened to our Cobbled classics episode from last week, it’s the perfect warm up for Paris-Roubaix this weekend.

This was a bit of fun, and something completely different to our usual Talking Luft. I hope you enjoy playing along!

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.
