Rouleur conversations podcast: Ian Boswell and Cycling Through a Pandemic
Ian Boswell’s road career was cut short by severe concussion sustained during a crash at Tirreno Adriatico in 2019. Where one door closes, another opens, as the American started a new job for Wahoo and, before you know it, was racing again – and very successfully too – but this time on gravel.
Rachel Jary discusses changing disciplines, the more inclusive vibe of the gravel scene and why wearing a transgender flag sweatband has a personal meaning to Boswell alongside raising a broader conversation in the cycling community.
Author Jonathan Heard compiled ten wonderful stories of long-distance riding for his book Cycling Through a Pandemic having himself put his life on hold to take a winding month-long route from Land’s End to John o' Groats. Adventure cyclist and racer Sami Sauri also joins Ian Parkinson to describe the difficulty of riding across the deserts outside of Zaragoza during Spanish lockdown.
