Life in the Peloton

with Mitch Docker

   Life in the Peloton


The Life in the Peloton Podcast started as a way to share my life as a professional bike rider overseas with my family and friends. It soon became a show for anyone who is interested in learning about the sport and how professional athletes live.

As a keen conversationalist, I was always interested in talking with guys in the bunch about the ‘human side’ of bike racing – from how they got into cycling, to how they manage racing and family life. I found a lot of fans were interested in this too. Back in 2016, I decided it was time to start recording these conversations so they could be shared and enjoyed as much as I enjoyed them.

I’ve tried to keep cycling as the commonality between all guests on the podcast but, as is with life, there is much overlap between fields and topics and I think this is what makes each guest’s story all the more interesting.

I hope everyone listening enjoys the stories told and gains an insight into our world of cycling.

If there is something you would like explored or asked, or even have a question to ask from a previous podcast, please shoot me through a message, I´d love to hear from you.

Cheers, Mitch

  1. MD, love the poddie. Listened to all of them today bringing the family to and from the ski hill here in the States. Big OGE fan. Please make more, you’ve got a good tempo. Good luck this season. Tell Whitey to let you ride! Justin

  2. Any chance you can video the podcasts in the future and put them up on Youtube? I find podcasts good to watch because you see people’s facial expressions, which makes you feel a bit more like you’re part of the conversation.

    Thanks very much.

  3. Hi Mitch,
    We want more episodes! On TV I can see the battles between the race winners which is interesting but I find it fascinating when you give us the insite of what happens in the pack. You started something good, you have to continue. I would mention some of my favourite episodes, but they have all been great.
    I really apreciate what you have already done, but now that you have started, you can’t leave us hanging. You got to put out more. 🙂
    Take it easy!

  4. Recently found the pody and lovin’ it! I’ve found the stories really interesting and learnt heaps from them, thanks. I was wondering if you might be able to do a pody on food in the peloton – what you guys eat on race days and on training days. Also, a pody on languages in the peloton would be cool too.
