Podcast 2013 Episode 9 – The Sound of Sarah Blushing

Podcast logoThis week we talk through the rest of the Energiewacht Tour and there’s a LOT to cover. Sarah makes a wager with some team managers. And then Sarah renders me speechless with laughter at the thought of Fränk Schleck trying to race with the women there (seriously – it’s flat, windy, there are canals and the time trial’s important…). We talk Redlands Classic and start to get excited about Flèche Wallone. Sarah offers up some excellent race tactics (it’s easier to win if you don’t fall over? Really?). (1:06:44 MIN / 64.06 MB)

        Yeah, yeah… whatever. At least that one had a war in the background so there was something interesting going on. For the record, I think they could have solved a problem like Maria if they’d stopped her fucking singing every 15 minutes.

        That *was* one of the problems with Maria – all the singing!
