Podcast 2015 Episode 12 – Sarah Offends Yet Another Continent

Podcast logoIt’s an awesome episode this week as we discuss We talk ChongMing Island Tour and World Cup, Tour of California, Venezuela and European racing. It’s big! We also play a fantastic game called “How many continents can Sarah offend in one podcast?” Place your bets now and press play to find out if you’re right! Also, at some point Dan uses the word “apace” (true story)! (1:17:55 MIN / 74.82 MB)

Podcast logoIt’s a huge show this week with racing from four continents to cover, so we cover it quickly.

We travel from Britain to the USofA to Luxembourg to the Netherlands to Australia to South Africa and probably some other places too! (1:17:57 MIN / 74.83 MB)

Podcast 2015 Episode 10 – Murder We

April 26, 2015 2 comments

Podcast logoHi team, this week we discuss the extreme weather in Australia, whether it’s a good idea for Dan to let Sarah control his life (it’s most assuredly not) and we also talk about bike racing. Races we cover include the Fleche Wallone World Cup along with Omloop van Borsele, the Joe Martin Stage Race and BMX, MTB and some bonus outrage. There’s also a hint of murder… basically it’s the best podcast we’ve recorded this week (probably).

Sarah interviews…. Sharon Laws

April 19, 2015 1 comment

Podcast interview logoSharon Laws is a fascinating rider, one of those who gave up a good career to race bikes, and she’s had more than her share of adventures since then.  Last year she was racing in the USA with UnitedHealthcare, but she’s back in Europe for 2015 after signing for the reinvigorated super–team Bigla, although her season got off to a bad start when she broke her collarbone in the Tour of Qatar.

She told me about all that, and more, and previews Wednesday’s Flèche Wallonne World Cup, with a great take on what it’s like to ride the Mur de Huy. (25:06 mins, 39.1mb)

You can follow Sharon on her twitter, and find out more about her on Bigla team rider profile – and of course, follow the Bigla twitter too.  And you can read my previous interviews with Sharon from 2011 and from 2013 on Podium Café, and an audio interview with her from the 2014 Friends Life Women’s Tour.

The women’s Flèche Wallonne Road World Cup won’t have a live stream, but there will be highlights videos on the UCI youtube and maybe some highlights on the men’s race coverage.  I’ll follow the race live with my twitter list, which is the nearest thing to a feed, and I have more ways to follow the race in my guide.  You can find out more about the course, startlist, history and more on the race website, and on Velofocus’ preview.

Podcast 2015 Episode 9 – Technically Germany

April 15, 2015 Leave a comment

Podcast logoHey team, it’s only fair that we warn you straight up this week might be one of our best episodes ever (especially with the epic troll Sarah pulls on Dan about two-thirds of the way through). Sarah’s just got back from volunteering at the Energiewacht Tour (or possibly from Technically Germany, though Dan’s suspicious that it’s not a real place) and there’s so much to talk about. Sarah’s sleep deprived and Dan’s coffee deprived. Somehow we manage to discuss the race in detail and laugh maniacally along the way. It’s probably the fault of the seals. We also quickly recap Redlands and some other stuff. (1:17:11 MIN / 74.1 MB)

Energiewacht Tour

Check out the videos for the stags (These videos start with the “samenvatting”, the highlights, and down the side have the full coverage – “deel 1 van 3″ is part 1 of 3 etc)

All of Sarah’s audio interviews from the race are on the Energiewacht Tour Soudcloud – and her photos are all through the Energiewacht Tour twitter (here’s the photostream)

April 7, 2015 Leave a comment

Podcast logoHi team, it’s been a big week of cobbles and racing so we give a big recap to the Ronde van Vlaanderen, the kind of recap a monument deserves. We also cover GP Dottignies and Sarah has some exciting news about the Energiewacht Tour. There’s plenty of blogs and videos to check out below as well. Along with some Mountain Bike inspiration and a modest amount of bickering. Basically everything you want in a podcast, all in one neat package. (1:03:44 MIN / 61.19 MB)
