The two cyclists of the Gaeldom regale us with their highly informed and highly opinionated views on modern day professional cycling, warts and all. Race reviews and post-race analysis of pro races don't dominate this 'cast however, the guys also convey their undeniable love for what cycling can do for your life and your soul. Even though the Flammecast is only a few issues old there have already been a fair few gems that are worth the effort of subscribing alone. Derek's cycling epiphany whilst on a morning ride recently, his suggestions for innovative use of furniture at press conferences and the emergence of the real Mellow Johnny, the artist formally known as the irascible one from the Velocast. So subscribe and be informed, entertained and inspired.
Best Pro-Cycling podcast.
Passionate, opinionated, iconoclastic & Celtic...Gwych!
Continuing the tradition
My introduction to cycling podcasts was the now deceased Velocast. Enthusiasm for the Velocast prompted the creation of the rather marvellous Velo Club Don Logan, and now John and Derek have come together to make yet another excellent little show in what is becoming a tradition of Gaelic cycling fans broadcasting their thoughts.
This is a damned fine podcast, intimate irreverent and really enjoyable to listen to. Thoroughly recommended.
