Episode 8 – The Giro Donne epic spectacular

Episode 8 – The Giro Donne Epic Spectacular (originally posted 5 July)

Wow, well the Giro Donne is ongoing and it’s already been a hell of a week of racing. As Sarah catches us up on the race so far, I run through a brief list of the injuries that Marianne Vos started the race with and very carefully avoid defining a “selfie”.

I do take some time to introduce Sarah to the important health concept of medicinal beer and then caution against drinking and riding. Sarah forces me to admit that some of my best friends are, in fact, Australians. Sarah introduces me to the notion of ‘stealth hills’ and melting roads before forgetting her own twitter name.

It’s a good one, so let’s get on with it! (54:25min / 49.82MB)
