This week we discuss Trofeo Binda, Gent Wevelgem, the ABSA Cape Epic and racing in El Salvador, plus a whole heap of blogs. It’s been a great week for blogs, seriously. We’ve got rider race reports from Tiffany Cromwell and Chloe Hosking as well as very thoughtful blogs from Bridie O’Donnell and Anika Todd. There’s so many things to enjoy, including some great interviews from our friend Clara Beard, especially the one about the Saddle Sore book. We also have a look ahead to Flanders!!! It’s a great variety of topics with heaps of laughter and mayhem. Settle in and enjoy! (1:19:09 MIN / 75.98 MB)

Last week’s women’s cycling news
We’re starting with something very close to a lot of women’s, erm, hearts….
Our friend Clara Beard interviewed Molly Hurfurd about Molly’s book Saddle Sore – a whole book about women’s genitalia and cycling. Read the interview on Girl Bike Love, and then find out more on the Saddle Sore website. Buy the e-book, for you or for the women in your life!
Clara also interviewed Rachel Heal, on DSing for United Healthcare – and being the first ever woman to DS at Milan-Sanremo. Read the Q&A, it’s really interesting.
Last week’s races
Hi everybody! This week Sarah and I recap the highlights and tragedies of the Omloop. We also ambitiously try to (kinda) follow Le Samyn semi-live while we record. We talk about the Track World Championships, including stellar performances from Kelly Druyts, Amy Cure, Sarah Hammer and more. We talk about Richmond worlds and a whole bunch of awards of the film type and other types as well! We get into a weird conversation about US state capitals and Sarah baselessly accuses Dan of lying, so of course Dan responds by accusing Sarah of lying about lying. See if you can spot who is telling the truth. Oh, and for those wondering, the Capital of Delaware is Dover, although Dan claims partial credit because there is actually a Wilmington in Delaware.(1:12:32 MIN / 69.64 MB)
