Podcast 2015 Episode 1 – Happy Birthday Pauline

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi everybody and welcome to 2015! It’s kind of the season but not really the season which means it’s the pre-season, and pre-season means we’re talking about Ladies Tour of Qatar. Of course, we’re never satisfied with just one subject so we’re also talking about Cyclocross worlds, Para-cycling and all the crazy, funny, awesome blogs and videos and things we’ve seen about the place in the last couple of weeks. (1:09:31 MIN / 66.73 MB)

Recent races

Ladies Tour of Qatar

Cyclocross World Championships

Newport International Track Para-cycling Cup

Videos, thanks to the Dutch Federation

And photos thanks to British Cycling – Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

Para-cycling will be in the Tokyo 2020 Paralynpics… but the International Paralympic Committee says the UCI must do more to support Paracycling.

Things we like

This makes us happy – our friends Yolanda, Marcos, Saúl & Pedro have launched the first exclusively women’s cycling website in Spain – Ciclismo Fem, and you can also follow their twitter. Read all about it on Podium Café.

We also love the Podium Café FSA Virtual Directeur Sportif competition – if you want to play (and you should!) here’s how.  For more virtual women’s cycling games, check out Chicabike too.

Ellen van Dijk on her plans to attempt the Hour record, but not yet – and Carmen Small on the Hour, bikini racing and more.  And here’s one of the many interviews with Dame Sarah Storey on her attempt at the Hour record, which will be on 28th February at the Revolution event in London.
