Michael Barry has raced for the biggest teams over the years, but what you probably didn't know about his is that he's also listened to the BIGGEST tunes as well. We sat down with Michael to talk empathy in the peloton, taking a new perspective on cycling, and a really diverse range of music.
RACHEL an Olympian and Worlds medallist recently transferred to new women's outfit Movistar. We sat down with Rachel to talk her unorthodox way into the professional peloton, an aversion to "doof doof" music and learning the words to "Ice Ice, Baby" to fit in in highschool.
Ian Boswell has set about quietly rising through the Professional ranks over the past six years and with a new team in 2018 big things are on the cards. We sat down with Ian to talk unconventional pre-race playlists, being banned from selecting the music on the bus and buzzed words being the most honest words.
Emily Maye has spent the last six years or so embedded with some of the most prolific athletes of our time, and, unsurprisingly producing some of the most iconic and unique sports photography of the last decade. We sat down with Emily to talk spontaneous cello, a young Julian Casablancas, ballet and listening to“Stick the Fucking Flag up Your Goddamn Ass, You Sonofabitch” with her mum.
Sami Sauri has burst onto the fixed gear crit scene in a big way the past couple of seasons, progressing up the RHC standings and looks to be a force in 2018. We sat down with Sami to talk enjoying Pavarotti as a kid, preferring to socialise pre race, and never havnig seen the the Spice Girls movie.

Samantha Schneider, the older of the two Schneider sisters, has been killing it both on the US national scene and internationally for what feels like forever and she's still only 27.

One of cycling's most unique photographers, Andy gave us some great stories about staying on the same floor as Steven Tyler, being KISS's biggest fan for a year, picking up music from the now legendary John Herety and knowing most of the lyrics to the Frozen soundtrack.
