Podcast 2016 Episode 27 – It DID Come Down To a Sprint Finish!

August 25, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week Sarah makes a foolish promise as we try to cover all of the rest of the 2016 Olympic racing and the various other races that took place since we last spoke. There’s the Olympic time trial, the track racing, the bmx, the mtb along with the Route de France, the Ladies Tour of Norway and the Open de Suede Vargarda. It’s a huge amount of racing and there’s a whole bunch of other stuff in there too. Brace yourselves for all the results that are fit to print (i.e. podcast). (1:23:21 MIN / 76.32 MB)

Podcast 2016 Episode 26 – The Olympic Road Race Time Trial Potato

August 9, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we do a full recap of the excitement and drama that was the 2016 Olympic Women’s Road Race in Rio. From the amazing efforts of Trixi Worrack, Marianne Vos, Ellen van Dijk, Mara Abbott and so many more, to the terrifying crash that changed the entire picture of the race we talk through each moment that lead to the final result. We also take some time to talk through the coming Individual Time Trial, who the top contenders are and who our favourites are likely to be. We include a couple of dark horse picks as well. It’s all Olympics this week, in all its glory. (1:32:05 MIN / 84.31 MB)

Because the Olympics are tough like this, we can’t find unrestricted videos of the race – it is what it is, hopefully highlights and the full race turns up on the Olympic YouTube at some point, like the London 2012 one did.  If you want highlights, check with your local Olympic broadcaster, and we have found these (they may be geo-restricted, but there are ways round that):

Podcast 2016 Episode 25 – The Tropical Classic

August 3, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we recap the Prudential Ride London Classique 2016, and Sarah shares her experiences with live commentating at the race. We then move into a full preview and breakdown of the 2016 Olympic Road Race, the teams, the riders and the course. We run down our list of favourites and riders to watch, and unsurprisingly there’s a lot of them. We also talk about one of the bigger news stores of the week which could simply be called Whereabouts in the World is Lizzie? But all is not lost because your intrepid podcasters manage to find a silver lining even there. (1:24:05 MIN / 76.9 MB)

We talked about Lizzie Armitstead’s missed tests, and there’s more info on the UKAD statement, on INRNG and the Telegraph – but we hadn’t seen her own statement at that point, which answers most of Sarah’s  remaining questions (we still want to see the CAS decision!)

Podcast 2016 Episode 24 – Horrific Good

July 27, 2016 2 comments

Podcast logo We’ve had a week off due to migraination and so there’s twice as much racing to get through. We take a romp through La Course, Thuringen Rundfahrt, Tour de Pologne and the BeNe Ladies Tour, all while discussing the finer points of multi-year growth plans and the overall development of the sport. Of course, this is all a precursor to the climactic Olympic Games racing that is just around the corner, but first we preview the Prudential Ride London Classique coming up on the weekend. So many things to discuss, it’s an epic episode! (1:07:23 MIN / 61.60 MB)

Podcast logoThis week we catch up on all of the remaining stages from the 2016 Giro Rosa including the infamous Mortirolo stage. There’s drama, there’s intrigue, there’s a few questions about what the hell actually happened. In the end though, we get a winner and a race that truly ticked all the boxes. There’s a huge amount of other things we manage to briefly mention, but as always, hit the post on our website to get all the videos and stories from the week of women’s cycling!

There’s a lot of really interesting results from Europe, Asia and around the world. We also dig deep into a preview of the Giro Rosa and who will (and won’t) be there, and what will make the race interesting. One thing we know is that it’s going to be super exciting and interesting!
