Podcast 2015 Episode 24 – How to Spell Cynical

August 25, 2015 Leave a comment

Podcast logoG’day team! After our [insert choice of adjectives here] attempts at commentating live on Sunday we thought it was high time to catch you up on the rest of the wonderful world of women’s cycling. It’s been a huge week of racing and so we try to cover it all. There were 4 different world cups on over the past week. Vårgårda hosted the road disciplines while there was also MTB and 4Cross. Junior track worlds and more! (1:17:38 MIN / 74.54 MB)

We covered a LOT of racing – and you can see all the videos from the (deep breath) Crescent Vårgårda Team Time Trial and Road Race World Cups, the Val di Sole cross country and downhill MTB World Cups, 4 Cross and Junior Track World Championships, the Sam Miranda Tour of the King Valley and the USA Pro Challenge in this lovingly curated post Sarah put together, along with results, photos, links and more.

We also talked about Amy Pieters leaving Liv-Plantur, and Stefan Wyman revealing how much it will cost to run Matrix Procycling next year, including implications of the new Women’s World Tour (if you missed that, we talked about it in last week’s podcast, with links in the post).   Want more Matrix?  Here’s a rider Q&A video by VoxWomen.

We talked about how she got involved with the site, how it’s grown, challenges and goals, and of course her plans for the future.  Of course our conversation took in a lot more, including the state of women’s cycling and what we love about it, and all kinds of things about the sport.

Podcast 2015 Episode 20 – Summer Classic

July 29, 2015 Leave a comment

Podcast logoIt’s a bit of a hectic podcast this week as there was only one short window where Sarah and Dan could coordinate their schedules to record. On the upside, it’s a bit of  a hectic podcast this week! Anyway, it was cobbly and rainy in France, which kind of makes La Course a summer classic, right? In addition to recapping the multiple attacks, crashes and attempts in Paris, we also discuss the BMX World Championships and the Para-Cycling World Cup. Enjoy! (58:38 MIN / 56.3 MB)
