Podcast 2015 Episode 13 – Pigs and Spiders

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi team! Dan’s been sick so this week we catch up on heaps of racing all over the planet, from China to Europe to North America. Along the way we explain some Aussie colloquialisms and have quite a bit of fun. It’s fair to say that we get pretty excited about the upcoming weekend of racing and well, everything really.

  1. Another choice podcast, fellaz!!

    Wow! Where did Kat Garfoot come from all of a sudden? She’s really tearing it up! Nearly snagged the GC from Anna vdB at Elsy Jacobs in a final-stage breakaway, and now in Bira threatening the GC alongside Emma ahead of tomorrow’s final stage… and at age 33 (which until recently the UCI according to their rule-book was considered too ‘old’). Props to Kat!!

    Rabo should still put up a spirited defense and secure the GC-win for Kasia Niewadoma. Kasia herself, if she’s able to secure this GC-win tomorrow, should be considered a good outside-favorite for the Giro Rosa if she hasn’t already.

    Hey, Aviva Women’s Tour is getting closer..! ITV video-profile of Matrix ahead of the race (mainly scenes of the team at Elsy Jacobs): http://www.itv.com/news/anglia/update/2015-06-12/race-day-our-british-team-take-on-the-worlds-best/
