Time in the Saddle is a podcast series hosted by avid cyclist and radio veteran, Ryan O’Connor focusing on all things exciting in the world of cycling. In the sixth episode of season two, Ryan and Jason Lind talk about age in cycling.
In the latest episode, Ryan O'Connor and Jason Lind kick off the cycling podcast with a conversation about the South African National Championships – a blue ribbon event for each cycling discipline that took place between 7-10 February in City of Tshwane, Gauteng.
Congratulations are in order as reigning champion and premier South African cyclist, Daryl Impey defended his title, completing the course in just 57:46 minutes.
Later in the podcast, Ryan and Jason discuss age in cycling. Is 60 the new 40 in the world of cycling?
This is something that I'd like to focus on... a lot of being said in various cycling publications in the cycling world... about age in cycling and saying that older cyclists that we're seeing now are leaner, fitter, putting out incredible times on routes.
Ryan O'Connor – Kfm 94.5 radio presenter
It's just gotten more and more competitive... there's more 50 and 60-year-old riders than 30-year-old riders sometimes.
