With the Giro d’Italia upon us, I thought who better to talk to than the in-form Londoner, Tao Geoghegan Hart. Fresh from 2 stage wins last week at Tour of the Alps in Italy, he is arriving at the Giro for the second Grand Tour of his young career. It was fun discussing and dissecting this year’s furious Giro parcours, as he sets his goals around the race ahead. We also discuss becoming a Pro, growing up in East London. Not to forget the ever important topic of coffee on the race. Have a listen.
Rory has had a long career. And as I found out when talking to Daryl Impey, a long career is not without it’s hiccups. “Hiccups” is putting it lightly, because before Rory could really sink his teeth into his profession career with Rabobank back in 2005, he received the piece of mail anyone would fear. A positive test result. For a substance completely unbeknown to him. Crushing. How do you deal with that as a 23 year old? And if you can, how do you come back from that? This is Rory’s story.
