No, it’s not a re-run. Fabian Cancellara is back just two weeks after his first appearance on Bobby & Jens to touch on all the topics we didn’t have time for the first time around. For a cyclist as accomplished as Fabian, there’s a lot left to cover, like his abandoned hour record and some amazing moments in the Tour de France (in the yellow jersey no less).
But first, as a three-time Paris-Roubaix winner, Fabian provides his thoughts on this past weekend’s racing in northern France. And later on he offers up his insights for the Ardennes classics.
In his first appearance on the show, Fabian filled us in on his time trialing, his Olympic medals, maintaining motivation and more. This time around, co-hosts Bobby Julich and Jens Voigt open things up to questions from the fans, because Bobby & Jens is, in Bobby’s words, “the people’s podcast.” Bobby gives Fabian a moment to address the accusations of motor doping that have dogged him for well over a decade before moving on to questions about TTing on a road bike (spoiler: sorry, Chris Froome) and some of his greatest feats on the bike, including his incredible stage 3 win in the 2007 Tour de France.
Also on this episode, Fabian explains the origin of the nickname “Spartacus,” easily one of the coolest names in professional cycling. Fabian also has some advice for younger riders listening in.
