Tom Dumoulin on retirement, solo travelling and racing against G

Oct. 24, 2023

Tom Dumoulin was one of the world's very best road cyclists. A Giro d'Italia winner, Tour de France runner up (behind a certain Welshman...) and almost unrivalled on a time trial bike. And yet, that success, and the lifestyle necessary to perform at that level, came at a cost for Tom. In 2021, he shocked the world by announcing a sabbatical from the sport. In 2022, aged just 31, he walked away from competing completely. He's been on our list of dream GTCC guests for a long time, and it was incredible to get Tom's perspective on life in retirement, while he and G enjoyed reminiscing over some of their old battles. Not bad for the first guest of season four, hey? We'll be back next Tuesday. See you then. G, Tom and Producer George Want to join our weekly GTCC Zwift rides?
