In the interview, we talk about his self-supported mountain bike racing experiment and the extent to which it brings him closer to selection for the 2022 Commonwealth Games. We also discuss his latest road racing experiences, how the team decides which rider will be the designated leader on any given day, what it’s like to ride Tro Bro Leon, what happens to the pig awarded to the best Breton in Tro Bro Leon, his recovery from food poisoning, the lessons he learned from last year’s Baby Giro, what it’s like living at the team base in Besançon and ‘rooming’ with Joe Pidcock.
This episode was also supposed to act as a preview of sorts for the Baby Giro. Unfortunately, after we recorded the interview, Lewis contracted Covid-19, which means he misses the race and is now taking an enforced break from racing.
