It’s been a week of worldly indulgences and this week’s podcast is no exception, hell we’re barely a minute into things before Dan’s invoking our theoretical lawyers and claiming indemnities! Anyway, this week we recap the women’s trade team TTT, the junior women’s ITT, the Elite women’s ITT (where Dan rather belligerently changed the results and history to suit his preferred view of the race – also Sarah sounds her “Smugness Alert”) AND we preview the Road Race! Also there’s some complicated polemica-y stuff which is important but hard to talk about, so of course we discuss that. We also talk about how sometimes these harder stories don’t get reported much in the press, possibly because they’re so complex and there’s a lot of stuff you can’t explain easily or quickly. On top of all of that we have the latest transfer news and the week wouldn’t possibly be complete without a bonus survey, so we’ve put that in too! (1:17:42 MIN / 74.6 MB)

Sarah especially loves this one – Lisa Brennauer‘s response on realising she’s won
Here’s that VeloNews report about Solovey, which we found bizarre.
Looking ahead to the Road Race on Saturday, here’s who Cyclingnews think we should watch out for
and here’s Sarah’s guide to watching the Road Race, if you don’t have it on tv. If you are new to women’s cycling, or know someone who is, Sarah’s playing her usual Equivalents game, where people tell her their favourite male cyclist, or type of cyclist, and she finds the female equivalent for you. Here’s Part 1 of the 2014 version – if you want to play, leave a comment there, or tell Sarah your favourite on twitter.
Keep up to dates with all the transfers on Podium Café – with gossip and speculation in the comments!
BMX – have we told you we love Caroline Buchanan?
Do you want to buy presents for cycling fans? Or just read something yourself? Sarah’s made a women’s cycling booklist – books by women’s cyclists, about women’s cycling, and books about cycling by women – it includes everything from autobiographies, to books about Victorian cycling, chicklist, poetry, feminist bicycle science fiction, politics and more, with road, track, MTB and handcycling.
We’re running a survey about women’s cycling and media coverage, for a project we’re running – thank you so much to everyone who’s filled it in! We’re running it until Monday, so if you haven’t completed it yet, please could you take 10 minutes to fill it in? We’ll put up some posts about the results over the next few months.
