Podcast 2016 Episode 16 – Meta Birthdays

Podcast logoCan you believe it’s been four years since we started this crazy adventure of doing a podcast about women’s cycling? Sarah and Dan take a moment to celebrate how far women’s cycling has come in that time and to reminisce a little about how they got here. From that we launch fully into catching up on the racing from the Tour of ChongMing Island, Vuelta Feminin Costa Rica, Tour of the Gila, BMX World Cup, para-cycling, the latest from the Lotto Cycling Cup and more. It’s been an amazing week to witness the growth and globalisation of cycling, and we’re putting it all down to the birthday of the podcast.

Podcast 2016 Episode 13 – Glass Half Full

April 21, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we catch up on the Basque races with Durango Durango, and all the stages of Emakumeen Bira. There’s a couple of Dutch races blown (pun intended) apart and then there’s Dan’s annual rant about the race that we should be able to see live but can’t (oh Flèche Wallonne, we’re still not going to buy you a beer). But Sarah maintains her resolution to see the half-full part of the glass and we prove that as we look ahead to the MTB action in Cairns and all the racing in the week ahead. It’s a huge episode packed full of great highlights, amazing races and really interesting results. Enjoy! (1:23:33 MIN / 76.5 MB)

Podcast 2016 Episode 12 – Wily As A Bag Full of Foxes

April 13, 2016 2 comments

Podcast logoG’day team! This week Sarah’s been in the Netherlands for the Energiewacht Tour and it was spectacular, so we recap what it was like to be at the race and to see the junior women riding as well as the elite women. We also cover the results from Redlands and the Emakumeen Saria. There’s a lot of racing to get through as we go stage by stage but lots of interesting moments to catch up on and as always a lot to be thrilled by. This episode comes free with a bag of wily foxes to listeners in jurisdictions allowed to have them*
(*no actual wily foxes are available to anyone anywhere, ever). (1:19:45 MIN / 73.0 MB)

You can of course get free automated updates via iTunes here or via our RSS feed here.

Sarah’s needs a bit of a sleep following her race travel but will update with a links post full of photos and videos and whatnot soon.

As always, feel free to support all the hard work she puts into bringing you the very best of women’s cycling via her Patreon page here.

 

Podcast 2016 Episode 11 – I Can’t Love It Enough

Sarah’s in The Netherlands this week for the Energiewacht Tour and so we tried some skype trickery with her phone, hopefully the sound works out for the most part. In any case, the Ronde van Vlaanderen was spectacular on Sunday and it was spectacular! We catch up on our favourite parts of the race and all of the things we loved. We also discuss the issues with the streaming and what we think that means for future races. We take a quick look at the GP Dottignies and look ahead to the racing coming up. It’s a quick one, but a good one! (55:11 MIN / 50.5 MB)

With Sarah and Dan both travelling this week for race coverage and work, we haven’t had time to do the full link roundup but you can make sure you stay current on all your women’s cycling news with these:

Before we get into that though we catch up on everything Gent Wevelgem! There’s the Pajot Hills Classic, the first round of the Enduro World Series (from Chile!) some BMX and whole load of other interesting bits and pieces from around the web. We also have a new pinnacle of HTFU to present and some more great news about prizemoney (and all the ways in which that’s fantastic too)!

March 16, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we talk up a storm about all the racing that’s happened over the last week (and how it’s nice to get live video this week!). We catch up on Drenthe, Drentse8 and the ABSA Cape Epic. There’s another very open video from Wiggle High5 about their performance on the weekend. There’s been some really interesting articles come out that caught our attention as well – and as always we have heaps of links, videos, articles and more in the post below. Dan doesn’t actually pick a fight with anyone this week but we do invent a new board game. It’s a long one and it plumbs new depths of nerdery! (1:23:02 MIN / 76.02 MB)
