Radio 4 takes an audio Tour of Manchester Velodrome with Sir Chris Hoy

Sound and vision too, courtesy of the Today programme's audio slideshow...

Sounds and vision (nice slide show) of Chris Hoy taking Radio 4 business presenter Adrian Shaw and the chairman of Citigroup Sir Wyn Bishchoff around the Manchester Velodrome. Bischoff is a big fan of what British Cycling have acheived and wanted to see if there were any lessons the business world could learn… well, BC went for a more sustainable long-term strategy so stayed away from the mortgage backed securitiies and other complex financial derivatives and instead decided to corner the market in gold… Sir Chris doesn't tell him.

This was on the Today programme a few weeks back, but we missed it (thanks to biketweets for reminding us).

Today's audio slideshow of Sir Chris Hoy and his training regime's founder and first editor, nowadays to be found riding a spreadsheet. Tony's journey in cycling media started in 1997 as production editor and then deputy editor of Total Bike, acting editor of Total Mountain Bike and then seven years as editor of Cycling Plus. He launched his first cycling website - the Cycling Plus Forum at the turn of the century. In 2006 he left C+ to head up the launch team for Bike Radar which he edited until 2008, when he co-launched the multi-award winning - finally handing on the reins in 2021 to Jack Sexty. His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes, though he'd like to own a carbon bike one day.
