Podcast 2015 Episode 29 – Worlds Apart

October 3, 2015 1 comment

Podcast logoG’day team, first of all, apologies for the delay in getting this episode out to you. We had major technical difficulties with our server during the week and it took a little while to fix. (For those who may be interested I’ll explain a little more at the bottom of the post). Anyway, we’re up and running now, and it’s a good thing too because what an amazing week of cycling last week was!

Richmond Virginia proved to be an excellent host for worlds and continuing on from last week’s time trials, this week brought us the Junior and Elite Women’s Road Races which proved to be incredibly exciting. We also discuss some controversy with Linda Villumsen and a recap of some other racing that happened in various disciplines. Enjoy! (1:10:15 MIN / 67.44 MB)

Sarah interviews…. Marianne Vos on Richmond 2015

September 25, 2015 3 comments

Podcast interview logoThe most successful rider at the Road Cycling World Championships in modern times has to be Marianne Vos, who started her Worlds with a win in the Juniors, and went on to win three elite gold medals and five silvers, not to mention her two Olympic golds on road and track, her two golds from Track World Champs, and her seven Cyclocross golds – and she’s still only 28!

This year, for the first time in her career, she’s not at Worlds, as she’s still recovering from the injuries and illness that derailed her 2015 road season, but the thing about Vos is she loves cycling, and has been following from home.  I caught up with her to talk about the racing so far, what she thinks about the road course and who could win, her advice for juniors racing Worlds for the first time, the announcement about the brand new Women’s World Tour for 2016, and much more.

You can listen to this one, or read the transcript below…

How are you, Marianne?

I’m good.  I’m not at the Worlds this time, but I’ll be watching closely

Is it strange not being there after being there every year since you were a junior.

It’s quite strange seeing it on television, and following it on social media, seeing my team mates and the women and guys from my country racing in America, and seeing the atmosphere there.  Of course it hurts a little bit, but on the other hand, I’m happy to be able to follow it from the side, and I’ll be back to be there next time.

Podcast 2015 Episode 28 – TTTEWITT

September 23, 2015 Leave a comment

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi team, so far at worlds in Richmond it’s been Time Trials. Team ones, Junior Women’s ones, Elite Women’s ones, trying to un-geoblock UCI video ones. So we talk about all that and a bunch of other hilarity as well (this may be a code for Dan swears a lot as we discuss socks in Vegas and all the ways in which they just don’t work)! Anyway, it’s a great episode with lots of things to be excited about and celebrate. (1:15:22 MIN / 72.37 MB)

Podcast 2015 Episode 27 – Dan Loses The Episode

September 15, 2015 Leave a comment

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowIt’s a huge podcast this week as there’s so much racing to cover and to look forward to! We first take a look at the Lotto Belgium Tour, Giro Toscana, Chrono Champenois, the Madrid Challenge, para-cycling and look ahead to all of the excitement of the road world championships in the USA. There’s some rum, plenty of swearing and hilarity going on as well. Sadly Dan ‘accidentally’ stopped recording just before Sarah declared herself victorious and so the episode title acknowledges his loss. (1:23:59 MIN / 80.62 MB)
