Podcast 2015 Episode 17 – Jaggedy Bumpy aka Giro Rosa 2

Podcast logoIt’s been an incredible week of racing at the Giro Rosa with so many riders from different teams and countries winning stages and tearing up the road. There have been world firsts and there have been all kinds of tactics deployed on the road. It’s everything you could want in a truly Grand Tour, it’s been so good that Sarah even invented a new description! Some riders have been flying, some have cool scars (seriously). And the best is yet to come as we still have several stages that could seriously shake up the GC and potentially change the outcome of the race. Join us as we talk about it all.

Giro Q&As: Carlee Taylor, Elena Cecchini, Katrin Garfoot & Allison Linnell

Podcast interview logoWhen the Giro Rosa hit stage 5, the temperatures dropped and the roads went uphill… so what does that mean for the riders?  I caught up with some of them to ask…

Carlee Taylor

At any race, this Aussie is pretty much guaranteed as the most smiley and friendly rider, with adventures happening to her all the time – and the Giro is no exception!  We talked about how she crashed dramatically out of the Stage 2 breakaway, but took the Queen of the Mountains jersey, giving Lotto Soudal two Green Jerseys on the same day.
