Things we talked about this week:
- Sarah went to the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with the Breast Cancer Care Cycling Team, and learnt all about frozen eyeballs. Tiffany Cromwell won the race, and Sarah interviewed her afterwards for Total Women’s Cycling – please click and read it. The full race results are here, here’s a tiny video interview with Cromwell after the race, and a highlights video:
Here’s another video, by Motomedia:
- We liked these race report from Le Samyn des Dames – Carmen Small‘s report on the Specialized-lululemon website is about the weirdness of racing, and her team-mate Ellen van Dijk‘s win, and the ORICA-AIS race report has lots of quotes from Emma Johansson, who was third. Race results are here.
- Le Samyn is the first race in the Lotto Cycling Cup – if you want to see the Motomedia team’s videos from last season’s Lotto Cup, they’re right here.
The UCI Stakeholder Survey is here – make sure you fill it in, and show them we want some serious action about women’s cycling.
- Cycling Fever have a great collection of videos from the Vuelta Ciclista a Costa Rica. Here are the full results.
- We are very happy that the Giro Donne has been saved for 2013. Here’s some more information about that, from Cycling Weekly
- Even if you’re not (yet) a cyclocross fan, you really should have a look at the 2012/13 Cyclocross season book, with photos by Balint Hamvas and words by our good friend tgsgirl. We loved last season’s book – the photos are gorgeous, and gs tells a really good story. You can find out more, and order a copy, on Balint’s website, Cyclephotos.co.uk – while you’re there, have a look at his photos, they’re beautiful.
- Emilia Fahlin’s blog on Cyclingnews on getting to know her new team-mates, and her adventures out motor-pacing.
