91. Alex Dowsett tells all about pro cycling

Cyclist Magazine Podcast

Nov 2 2023 • 1 hr 11 mins

This week Will and James are joined by Alex Dowsett, six-time British National TT champ, twice Giro d'Italia stage winner and one-time Hour record holder. And he did this all while competing with haemophilia.


Now retired, Alex has just released his autobiography, Bloody Minded (Bloomsbury), a candid account that pulls no punches, either when assessing his own performance or telling it like it was, from crap components to dodgy team owners to going-it-alone for the Hour. Happily, he's up for discussing it all, and more, on this week's show.


Interview starts at 4:20


Alex founded his charity, Little Bleeders, in 2016, which supports young people with blood disorders to get into sport. It's a great cause, so please do pay the website a visit for more details.

Bloody Minded, is published by Bloomsbury and available at all good bookshops.
