Can 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.

No podcast this week, as Dan and I needed a break, but there was still a lot of racing, so here’s a round up of women’s cycling videos, blogs and links from the last week in road, BMX, MTB, a bit of track, and a surprising look at what a rider gets up to in her spare time….!

Ella Cycling Tips race report – and highlights:
There were a whole load of races this weekend – here’s some video from road racing in Europe and MTB in the Czech Republic – and hopefully someone will find the video of the amazing racing in the USA!
On Friday, it was the Boels Rentals Hills Classic, aka Holland Hills – all around the hills of the Valkenberg region, including the Cauberg. This one is a hard race – last year Marianne Vos broke her collarbone in a fall here.
