The Telegraph Cycling Podcast supported by Jaguar
Journalists Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe of the acclaimed Cycling Podcast are linking up with The Telegraph for the Tour de France.
They will produce daily episodes throughout the race, including a preview before the Grand Départ in Yorkshire on July 5th, giving The Telegraph unrivalled coverage of the world’s greatest race.
Adam Sills, Head of Sport at Telegraph Media Group, said: “The Tour de France is one of the most important events on the sporting calendar, and one to which we have been giving increasing coverage in recent years.
“We are pleased to be teaming up with Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe of The Cycling Podcast to launch The Telegraph Cycling Podcast, supported by Jaguar. Already entertaining and insightful, this new daily Tour de France podcast will bolster our coverage and, with our cycling correspondent Tom Cary’s on-the-ground reporting, help make The Telegraph the number one source of news, analysis and interviews.”
Mark Cameron, Global Brand Experience Director for Jaguar Land Rover, said: “We are delighted to be joining The Cycling Podcast and The Telegraph as official sponsors of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast, supported by Jaguar. As the cycling audience increases exponentially it becomes more discerning, and there is a growing appetite for intelligent, objective and thought-provoking discussion, debate and analysis. We are pleased to support a podcast that, like Jaguar, is striving for quality and to be number one.”
The first episode of The Telegraph Cycling Podcast, supported by Jaguar will be an extended interview with David Millar, the veteran British rider who is about to start his final Tour de France. This will be broadcast on June 26, nine days before the 2014 Tour de France gets underway in Leeds.
Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe will file daily half-hour episodes as they cover the Tour. Each episode will be available on Telegraph.co.uk, iTunes, Audioboo and on our website thecyclingpodcast.com in the evening after the day’s stage.
The podcast will feature interviews, analysis, discussion and special guests. There will also be ‘bonus’ episodes as the race unfolds.
