Podcast 2017 Episode 32 – Transfers (and the BS of the Points System)

This week we dive right into all the latest news and updates on transfers. If you need to know which rider is going where, then this is the episode for you! (Unless they haven’t been confirmed yet, in which case, you probably still want this episode but you’ll have to learn to live with the fact that we can’t predict the future). Lots of interesting moves being made, with notable riders going to interesting teams; young up and comers joining the elite peloton; and a few eyebrow raisers too. (54:44 MIN / 50.12 MB)

Podcast 2017 Episode 31 – Being Italian IS a Tactic

This week we talk through the Junior and Elite Women’s Road Races from Bergen in Norway. There was all sorts of excitement in both races, and we talk through the highlights, the lowlights and the interesting moments that made the races. We also have a bit of a chat about riders to keep an eye on from the Junior racing, and of course we get a bit sidetracked, distracted and diverted some of the time too. (1:08:20 MIN / 62.57 MB)

This week we catch up after Sarah’s been away at the Boels Rental Ladies Tour in the Netherlands. There’s Plouay results to discuss, all the Dutch racing and of course what it means for worlds. Speaking of worlds, we’re two weeks out from the festivities in Bergen and so of course it’s time for the (sigh, eyeroll) polemica.

Podcast 2017 Episode 26 – A Finn for the Finish

This week we cover the results from Sweden with the Vargarda Team Time Trial, and the Road Race. We also have an interesting diversion into how the calendar shift of this race has changed the way it’s raced and the results. Ella CyclingTips this week had a really interesting interview with Leah Thorvilson, the Canyon-SRAM rider who was the winner of last year’s Zwift Academy. We discuss that interview and the broader impact of Zwift Academy on the sport, especially interesting as the second year of the program is due to start in September. As always, lots more fun, laughter and Australian weather updates included! (47:28 MIN / 43.50 MB)
