Guest for the episode could scarcely be more qualified to comment. Joey Walker, a rider for Brother UK-sponsored Crimson Orientation Marketing RT, is the reigning British Circuit Race Champion. So too is Rebecca Durrell, who won the women’s title while riding for Team Brother UK-Tifosi p/b OnForm, now CAMS-Basso Bikes.

Rebecca and Joey share insights gained from their experience at the pinnacle of the sport. They lift the lid on start-line nerves, riding on the limit of crashing, managing the logistical and tactical demands of the Tour Series, and sharing the sensation of victory with crowds of several thousand people.

Brother UK Cycle Team OnForm‘s Mark Botteley offers a manager’s viewpoint. He describes the challenges his young riders are likely to face in the 2021 Tour Series, describes the tactical options for a squad long on potential but short on experience, and calls for elite domestic road racing to embrace the COVID-inspired opportunity to restructure.

Peter Hodges is the Communications Director for SweetSpot Group, the Tour Series organisers, and a man who has witnessed an astonishing 102 of the 107 rounds held by the competition since 2009. He describes its challenges, successes and plans for the future and even shares memories of his favourite venues.
