In our second ever podcast episode, Greg Trowman interviews the Saint Piran rider Joe Evans. As readers of The British Continental website will know, Joe has been keeping a journal for us this year documenting life both on and off the bike.
Before moving to the elite-level Saint Piran team at the beginning of 2018, Joe spent three seasons riding for Madison Genesis. This year, Joe has combined racing with full-time study at the University of Sheffield.
In the interview, recorded in October, we hear from Joe about how he balances training with studying full-time, why he thinks it’s important for a rider to have more than one string to their bow, and his unexpected love for racing the Tour Series.
“I was like, “I’m on the ladder now, I’m going to be a pro cyclist, it’s going to happen.” And then obviously it didn’t”
Before you take a listen, please accept our apologies for the audio quality in the interview. Unfortunately, we had a few technical hiccups, which means there is more background noise than we’d have liked. But please do bear with it, it’s well worth it!
The podcast is also available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and many other channels.
