Dylan Van Baarle is Talking Luft!

Rapha presents Talking Luft!

You all know my love for Paris Roubaix, and in that sense I have some cycling royalty on the pod for you this week. Chatting with none other than the man who conquered this year’s Hell of the North, Paris Roubaix winner, Dylan Van Baarle.

Riding for Team Ineos Grenadiers in his 9th year pro, I was keen hear more about Dylan and what makes him tick on and off the bike. We caught up while he was in Australia for the UCI Road Worlds and got Talking Luft!

Pro kit style, Oreo rice cakes, coffee shop stops, his favourite seat on the bus, the riders who inspire him, best & worst roommates, Netflix on race and a whole lot more!

This was a bit of fun. Enjoy this listen and stay tuned next week for my final LITP episode of the season, On Road with me to the Worlds.

Life in the Peloton’s 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.

I grew up watching those highlights and the music became part of my childhood. When I set out to create Life in the Peloton I knew that theme song was what would set the scene and capture the essence of Life in the Peloton.

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.
