Talking Luft! with Lizzy Banks. S3. E15

Rapha presents Talking Luft!

Talking Luft is back for another week of cycling style, culture, rituals & bit of life off the bike.

Following on from my Tour de France Femmes episode last week with three riders from EF Education Tibco SVB, I sat down with their British teammate, Lizzy Banks.

And this was one hilarious chat. As you’ll hear Lizzy was a laugh to chat to and had some fantastic stories to tell.

We chat caps, bucket hats, aero hair styles, kit style, rice vs. pasta, race breakfasts, the best of curries, best & worst moments in a race, unplugging on the bike and, a first for the podcast – a war story that ends in victory!

All that, plus a whole lot more.

I hope you enjoy the listen.

Stay tuned next week for my Ultimate Strava episode as I unpack everything Strava with George Bennett, Mark O’Brien and Jay Vine.
