WLC Podcast: Adam Blythe on the Excitement of Live Commentating on Cycling’s Major Events

By We Love Cycling

Sit back, tune in and enjoy another episode of fresh and insider content for (road) cycling fans and adjacent enthusiasts.

Matt Stephens once again sat down with another fellow Brit, this time a good friend and, so to speak, colleague of his, Adam Blythe. Since they both enjoy live commentating on cycling events, they talk transitioning from being a professional cyclist to being a pro commentator, and touch on their shared love and passion for the profession… and also their hair.

Adam Blythe is a former professional road and track-racing cyclist from Yorkshire, with a pro career spanning from 2010 to 2019, who competed under the colours of Tinkoff and Lotto–Soudal, among others. Blythe began racing at a young age, quickly moving to the World Tour level. Appearing with a number of world-renowned teams and gathering wins such as the British National Championships and the RideLondon Classic, Blythe eventually decided to retire from pro cycling in October 2019, after finishing the season.

Since Adam is also a Škoda ambassador and an advocate for gender equality in his beloved sport, in 2020, Adam acted as a Directeur Sportif for the very first women’s virtual Tour, the V-Series Women’s Tour that took place on the virtual racing platform ZWIFT. Adam is an active supporter, organiser and advocate for women’s cycling events and projects.

Tune in for some lovely and insightful banter between two professionals.
