Talking television with Helen Wyman
The 2016 Aviva Women’s Tour was a fantastic race, and Dan and I talked about the racing action in our latest podcast (spoiler alert: so exciting!) – but I had a pretty unique view of the race this year, because I was doing commentary for ITV4. I was doing the “as live” commentary with Hugh Porter, while cyclocross superstar and general all-round cycling guru Helen Wyman did the presenting at the start and finish of each show with Ned Boulting. I had so many questions about her experience – so we chatted about it all, with a foray at the end into how the TV coverage of women’s cyclocross has already changed the sport after one season – have a listen!
If you missed any of our TV commentary, they’ll be archived for a few more weeks here on the ITV Hub. You can also find tons of clips from the race, including highlights with some of me, on the Aviva Women’s Tour YouTube – and of course more fantastic media on the race website.
As always, I am funded to do this kind of thing by my wonderful Patreon supporters – thank you so much! You can join them from as little as £/$/€ 2 a month, over here.
