Podcast 2014 Special Feature – Sarah interviews Anika Todd

Anika Todd has one of those stories that people daydream about on long rides.  She started riding casually with her then-boyfriend, joined the Tripleshot cycling club in Vancouver, who noticed she was pretty strong, and encouraged her to start racing.  She did so well that the club raised the money to send her to the Canadian National Championships…. where she came 7th in the road race and 2nd in the Time Trial – and she hadn’t even been racing for a year!  Team Tibco spotted her and signed her up, and now she’s a pro!

It’s not just her great story – it’s how she tells it, on her fantastic blog that’s given us a real insight into what the Spring Classics are like.  She popped by to tell Sarah about experiencing the European Spring, elbowing Kirsten Wild aside, having a day riding with Marianne Vos, and much more – including whether she still enjoys cycling!
