Our guest on the show this week is the King, Sean Kelly.

With 159 career wins, nine Monuments, one Grand Tour, seven consecutive Paris-Nice wins and countless other big races, Kelly is one of the greatest road cyclists of all time.

In the latest instalment of the Cyclist Magazine Podcast, James and Joe talk to Sean about that immensely successful career and being ranked the second greatest cyclist ever behind Eddy Merckx; never having to pay for his own pint in Ireland and being recognised in the street; his notoriously strict eating habits including banning bread from his diet; Tour of Flanders and rainbow jersey regrets; that insane Poggio descent in 1992 and why he should have won the Tour de France.

We also chat with Sean about the peloton's current crop and ask which rider from today reminds him most of himself and whether he really did get left behind by his team once.

Joe also has time to talk about Zwift at the top of the show – we have a guide to the training app/game here.

Sean Kelly has also launched the Indoor Velo mobile training mount which you can learn about here.
