The Rouleur Longreads Podcast: Concussion Repercussion

Concussion protocol has improved within pro bike racing in recent years, but is still not mandatory. 

The debilitating and potentially lifetime consequences of head injuries are still not widely understood within the sport.

With testimony from three racers with very different experiences: Toms Skujins (Trek-Segafredo), Brent Bookwalter (Mitchelton-Scott) and Matt Brammeier (now a British Cycling coach).

The Rouleur Longreads Podcast brings you selected long form articles from the magazine, especially recorded for Rouleur. Don’t stop what you’re doing – do it while listening to the world’s best cycling writing.

The latest in this series is Concussion Repercussion, by Ian Cleverly, from issue 18.3 of Rouleur magazine
