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)

Podcast 2015 Episode 8 – Cobbles (and the cobbly cobblers who cobble them)

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)

Podcast 2015 Episode 6 – Potential!

March 26, 2015 Leave a comment

Podcast logoHello everyone! This week Sarah and Dan tackle the most intense deconstruction of three paragraphs you’re likely to hear all week. As dull as that sounds, it’s guaranteed to be better than your high school poetry assessment, so there’s that! In racing news, we recap the action from Cholet-Pays de Loire and take a quick look ahead at an exciting weekend of Trofeo Binda and Gent – Wevelgem. Of course, there’s a lot more to the episode than just that, but telling you any more now would defeat the purpose of listening to it, so get excited and press play! (1:10:56 MIN / 68.10 MB)

Podcast 2015, Episode 5 – We love it when a plan comes together

Podcast logoSo much racing! We talk all about the Omloop van het Hageland, and then head over the border (or in Dan’s view, two suburbs over) to Drenthe for three fantastic races, including the first round of the 2015 Road World Cup, the Ronde van Drenthe.  Along the way we look at Loren Rowney’s crash in the Drentse 8, examine some tactics, and how analysis is completely dependent on hindsight, and wander all over the peloton.

(Because there was so much racing this week, we didn’t have time to talk CIRC, women’s wages or the proposed women’s World Tour, but we’ll be focusing on that next week)

As always we’ve got the videos and links to everything we talked about down below, but make sure you stream the podcast, we enjoyed it and we hope you do too. (56:38 MIN / 54.4 MB)

March 3, 2015 5 comments

Podcast logoHi team, this week Sarah and Dan round up all that’s fit to know about Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, including the best of social media, blogs and videos. We also get excited about upcoming races and salute our friend Jens’ love of Dutch Style Racing. There’s some great photos and videos from around the traps, including some excellent pieces from the track world championships, some downhill mountain bike and (Sarah’s favourite) some bikecam footage.
