Podcast 2014 Episode 11 – Ronde van Amazing

April 8, 2014 4 comments

Podcast logoWe wrap up the Ronde van Vlaanderen, talk about the Redlands Classic in the US (and how it’s not that fucking hard to provide some race footage!). We review a lot of blogs and videos we’ve seen through the week including ride blogs from Chloe Hosking, Gracie Elvin and Emma Johansson, and a great video from Matrix Vulpine. There’s also a great video from Caroline Buchanan and some more blogs from Anika Todd, Accidento Bizarro and a completely left-field shout-out to our mate Laura Moo. We quickly glance ahead to Energiewacht Tour and wonder where in the world the Tour of Thailand is (we’re pretty sure it’s in Thailand actually, but haven’t been able to confirm this online). Enjoy!

We really loved Accidento Bizarro’s blog on  how harassment can be just like riding a bike – it’s a great analogy, and she always write really well, you should definitely read it.

And once you’ve read that – read this!  Chloe Hosking‘s profile of all-round superstar, bike genius and our heroine, Ina-Yoko Teutenberg

Podcast logo Hello everyone! This week Sarah and I talk about the results of Le Samyn, Hageland, the Drenthe world cup series, and the coverage that goes with it – including the new commitment from the UCI to a quicker turnaround on race footage and a race highlights package with commentary from Ant McCrossan and Rochelle Gilmore.

December 30, 2013 Leave a comment

Mostly I’ve been watching the mid-winter cyclocross – so many great races and fun things, and I’ve been collecting links to videos, photos and other CX miscellany in this post (I especially love Balínt Hamvas’ race photos) as well as how to watch this week’s races – but these are some other things I’ve liked recently.  If there’s anything you’ve seen that I’ve missed, please please add that to the comments, or let me know on twitter.

December 23, 2013 9 comments

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowIt’s a Festivus miracle! (NOTE: Festivus miracles don’t actually exist). Dan’s been away so this week Sarah catches him up on all the track, paracycling, cyclocross, MTB and other news before Christmas takes over the schedule for the coming week. We talk Vos’ return to racing, Katie Compton in cross and sponsorship news for the road in 2014. Plus a whole bunch of other stuff including a philosophical discussion about whether the UCI deserves credit for doing things it’s supposed to do. Also at one point Sarah laughs uncontrollably for over 30 seconds. Merry Festivus/Crossmas/Christmas/Kwanzaa/Hannukah/Whatever/BahHumbug everyone! (51:53 MIN / 49.81 MB)

Podcast 2013 Episode 39 – Monique Hanley Teaches Us How To Change the World

December 15, 2013 Leave a comment

Podcast logo This week we interview one of Dan’s cycling heroes! Monique Hanley joins us to talk about cycling administration and culture change. Monique is on the Executive Board of Cycling Victoria and the Women’s Commission for Cycling Australia, and she’s worked on a lot of significant projects within those roles over the last few years. Her list of achievements are many and yet she’s still gracious, humble and looking ahead to the next challenges. It’s a great interview into a side of the sport that we don’t get to hear all that much about very often. Dan’s especially excited when Monique explains to him how it’s theoretically possible to get himself appointed to all the UCI cycling commissions. It’s a cracking interview, enjoy!

October 25, 2013 1 comment

Podcast logoThis week we get into our highlights from the 2013 season starting with the spring classics and moving on from there. The discussion takes in races, riders, imagined moments and all sorts of hilarity including a possibly really dirty joke about stamps. Honestly, there’s so much to love about the 2013 season that it’s definitely a 3 beer podcast this week (well, 2 and a half if you’re taking it easy). So sit back, relax, crack a cold one and settle in and prepare to relive the best bits of the first part of the season! And don’t forget to check all the links and videos and fun things out below!

Podcast 2013 – Episode 34 – OMG Sarah is Dying!

October 10, 2013 2 comments

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowThis week Sarah is suffering from a terrible chest infection/cough-of-doom and might possibly die before the end of the episode. So in order to avoid recording her death rattle we rush through the latest news on Toscana (actually we didn’t rush because this one made us angry), UCI rule changes, World’s broadcasting and a real tragedy that occurred during the week. We do try to end the show on a good note though, and fortunately there’s some good news to help us achieve that. It’s a bit of an emotional ride this week, but we do our best to get you through it all. Oh, and at some point Sarah challenges Brian Cookson to a swordfight. (1:20:57 MIN /  77.71 MB)
