This week we bring you a special feature as Sarah sits down to interview the reigning world number one, Emma Johansson! Sarah talks one-on-one with the Orica-AIS rider ahead of Trofeo Binda and Ronde van Vlaanderen which they discuss in detail and how Emma prepares for those, along with how she thinks Binda will unfold and who she’s keeping an eye on as the World Cup races continue. Sarah asks Emma about being last year’s number one rider and if she’d prefer to win the races outright or the overall. They also discuss her role promoting Belgium and tourism in Flanders, along with how she’s managed to be adopted by pretty much every country she’s ever been to (as a side note Dan reckons she totally has been adopted by Australia, her English accent is half Aussie now!!!). It’s a great interview, so enjoy! (34:26 MIN / 33.06 MB)
