Clara Beard is Ferncoyote on twitter – and Sarah is @_pigeons_ if you want to ask them any questions (or tell Clara she’s awesome!)

Clara was working on the Tour of the Gila, where she was doing live twitter updating amongst other things.  She also works for the Tour Tracker, most recently at the Tour of California and the USA National Championships, and you should install their apps, they’re great.  She’ll be with them at the Tour of Utah, so keep an eye out for that.

Sarah was working on the Friends Life Women’s Tour, running the live updates on the website and on twitter.  You can listen to her talk about the race on that week’s podcast, and see her photos from the Edinburgh round of the Tour Series on her flickr.
