What a week! It’s the 1 year anniversary since we started saying dumb stuff on the internet! We talk social media jersey, Tour of California, harrassment, racing and all sorts of stuff. Not to be missed!
Well sort of. As it turned out, Sarah and I recorded this week’s podcast literally about an hour before the news about the Tour of Languedoc. Anyway, that’s all turned to 147 different shades of shit, so make sure to check out Sarah’s post to try and help us work out what the fuck’s going on over there. It’s a longer episode this week but that’s only because we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. Pour yourselves a strong whisky (or whiskey!) and settle in. (1:15:32 MIN / 72.16 MB)

Happy podcast birthday! We’re one year old today!
Things we talked about this week
The Tour of ChongMing Island World Cup
- Jessie Maclean‘s excellent twitter summary of the race:
I feel like we were invited to a party but got kicked out before the music started #ChongmingWC

- Race report from ORICA-AIS,
Japanese national champion Mayuko Hagiwara won her first European race – read about it on the Wiggle Honda site
We talked about the upcoming Tour of Languedoc Roussillon, but it’s been cancelled at the last minute. Or maybe not. More information here. And for all the news about everything to do with French women’s cycling, follow the excellent Gwéna.
The fantastic Gatineau races start this weekend. We both wish we were in Quebec for them – it’s a great festival of cycling.

I also really want to make a special mention of the fantastic Kathryn Bertine‘s documentary project “Half the Road”. There’s an amazing preview available over at IndieGogo and an opportunity for us all to make a donation and help tell a really important story in a really compelling way.
