Matt Rendell’s Inside Stories of the Tour De France

Matt Rendell’s Inside Stories of the Tour De France

Sat 5 October 2024

ITV Tour de France commentator Matt Rendell shares stories from his 25 years’ covering the race – and his dealings with cycling’s big names from Eddy Merckx to Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish to Chris Froome.

Matt’s live shows delight audiences with a magically unpredictable mix of first-hand experiences of the biggest races on the calendar, bizarre/hilarious personal stories and thought-provoking ideas about the future (and history) of the sport. Is a rider from a Colombian village making it to the Tour de France really comparable to man landing on the Moon? How do Matt’s rapid post-race interviews compare to his in-depth investigative journalism that routinely earns him death threats?

Alongside his seven cycling books and contributions to print and broadcast media, Matt has worked for several teams; lived in Italy, Spain, France, Latvia and Colombia; written a book about learning salsa; and has past lives as a university lecturer and jazz double-bassist.

Matt Rendell will be in conversation with former Procycling writer Duncan Steer. There will be a chance to ask your own questions.
