G’day gang! This week Sarah’s on a deadline because she’s so famous and has important interviews and uni meetings to run off to. Which means we race against the clock to discuss Borsele, Westhoek, the Cairns MTB World Cup, the Cheshire Classic in the UK and of course, La Course by Le TdF! Then we enter the lightning round and try to quickly wrap up all the blogs, videos and awesomeness around the internet before we run out of time! While it’s fast and punchy, it’s filled with all the good stuff. This week Dan turns the tables on Sarah and limits HER ranting (about podium boys and so on) while also letting slip by “accident” exactly when Sarah’s birthday is. Basically everything you want to know from the week that was, leading into the week that will be, is in this podcast… so enjoy! (45:09 MIN / 43.34 MB)
To stream the most birthday-ish podcast about Sarah’s birthday, wait a week or so, but in the meantime click this one here!

This week’s racing
Sarah’s got a post with the videos, links and photos from this weekend’s racing – the Omloop van Borsele ITT, road race and junior stage race, and the Dwars door de Westhoek. It’s on Podium Café – but we LOVED Chloe Hosking’s race report from the Borsele road race, she tells it SO well. And here’s video:
