Podcast 2013 Episode 6 – Polemica is delicious and tasty

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowIt’s a feast of treats for you this week! First off we recap last week’s racing, making sure to check in on Emma Johansson breaking her streak of 3rd places, fortunately for her she did it by snagging a win. We also take stock of who’s been crashing (and I take over Sarah’s usual role of being the bastard in the podcast for a few minutes). We invent the best tasting cycling cocktail ever! We also discover that Sarah is a failure at pop culture, shocking I know. We also talk through some Exergy news and Sarah tells us about her favourite team launch event of all time. There’s a lot to cover so you’d best get listening now! (1:01:55 MIN / 59:45 MB)

The Exergy Tour for 2012 was cancelled, and teams aren’t surprised –  which might be to do with the fact that that prominent USA race organisers didn’t want anything to do with the race.  Someone who says she’s “Janet, spouse to the owner/CEO of Exergy” has replied to a comment of Sarah’s on Podium Café, where she puts her side of the Exergy story – you can click through and read it here.

Speaking of American races, the Amgen Tour of California have announced their women’s race.  Here’s Ant1 on it
