103. Ex-pro Scott Sunderland on 90s cycling, Classics, Cancellara, breaking stuff and RideLondon

Cyclist Magazine Podcast

Apr 18 2024 • 1 hr 12 mins

This week, Will and James talk to ex-pro, team ds and race director Scott Sunderland.


Today, Sunderland is race director for the RideLondon Classique and Tour of Flanders among others, but during the 1990s and 2000s he rode professionally for TVM, Lotto and GAN before taking on sports director roles at Team CSC and Cervélo Test Team. Here, Sunderland talks racing through the troubled 1990s; a near career-ender when he got hit by a team car; orchestrating Classics wins with Fabian Cancellara; and breaking tens of thousands of pounds of kit in the Arenberg Forest, all in the name of science. Honest. We also discuss the upcoming RideLondon Classique WorldTour women's race, which takes place on 24th-26th May.


Interview begins at 9.28.
