I always love the Junior Track World Championships, because it’s not only the chance to spot stars of the future, but it’s also great to watch the young riders learning and developing – and their huge emotion when they win, and realise that all that hard work over the years has paid off. It’s lovely!
This year’s Track World Champs were shown live, so if you missed them, here are the videos – highlights shows and the full sessions – and I’ve put in the timings for the full races, if you want to find your favourites.
This week we talk through the rest of the Energiewacht Tour and there’s a LOT to cover. Sarah makes a wager with some team managers. And then Sarah renders me speechless with laughter at the thought of Fränk Schleck trying to race with the women there (seriously – it’s flat, windy, there are canals and the time trial’s important…). We talk Redlands Classic and start to get excited about Flèche Wallone. Sarah offers up some excellent race tactics (it’s easier to win if you don’t fall over? Really?). (1:06:44 MIN / 64.06 MB)
