Podcast 2013 Episode 5 – Welcome to the Dark Side

This week we recap the Snowmageddon that was the Drenthe weekend. Sarah catches us up on some interesting developments in the world of marketing for women’s cycling. I teach Sarah about farming (including how to plant a chicken) and we swear a bit too. Early on I extol the virtues of the metric system and we take a look at the upcoming races this weekend.

Gracie Elvin‘s video of her, Amanda Spratt and Jessie Maclean having a surprise adventure after Drenthe:

Lex Albrecht‘s new video from her NOW and Novartis for MS training camp:

Marketing, women and cycling – Sarah’s a bit obsessed:

And this is the Rapha video that I was so taken with:

On Friday 15th March, Sarah will be in London for the joint season launch event for Matrix Fitness Racing Academy and the London Women’s Road Cycle League.  It’s at Look mum no hands! on Old Street from 6pm, and everyone is very welcome – if you’re nearby, come along and say hi to Sarah, she always loves meeting new people.

Finally, this article came out after we recorded, but Emma Pooley interviews are always full of great quotes.  This one on Cycling Weekly is no different, with calls for a women’s Tour de France, comments on Marianne Vos, and a message for Jonathan Vaughters….
