Podcast 2015 Episode 27 – Dan Loses The Episode

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowIt’s a huge podcast this week as there’s so much racing to cover and to look forward to! We first take a look at the Lotto Belgium Tour, Giro Toscana, Chrono Champenois, the Madrid Challenge, para-cycling and look ahead to all of the excitement of the road world championships in the USA. There’s some rum, plenty of swearing and hilarity going on as well. Sadly Dan ‘accidentally’ stopped recording just before Sarah declared herself victorious and so the episode title acknowledges his loss. (1:23:59 MIN / 80.62 MB

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.

Things to read and watch:

Sarah’s been collating all the race video and cool social media, blog posts, etc that she can find. She’s also been doing interviews and QandAs with riders. Here’s the full list of all the news there is, stage by stage.

Also, here’s Sarah’s guide on how to follow the race (remember there’s some really exciting stages to come!).

Podcast 2015 Episode 14 – Smash and Grab

Podcast logoIt’s a short episode because Sarah literally has to rush off to the Aviva Women’s Tour (thanks Patreon supporters for making this possible!). Before she goes we quickly recap Philly, the Spanish racing and almost preview the Women’s Tour. Hit play and enjoy! (30:45 MIN / 30 MB)

Read all about the Emakumeen-Bira here. (Check out the awesome photo galleries!)

The Diamond Tour’s podium setup raised some questions from riders like Marijn de Vries and had the organisers quickly putting out a statement. Anna Zivarts gave us a glimpse of what it might look like the men were treated in the same way.

And, of course, the Aviva Women’s Tour is a hotly anticipated race with lots of media and Marianne Vos doing commentary for the tv highlights!

 

Podcast 2015 Episode 10 – Murder We

Podcast logoHi team, this week we discuss the extreme weather in Australia, whether it’s a good idea for Dan to let Sarah control his life (it’s most assuredly not) and we also talk about bike racing. Races we cover include the Fleche Wallone World Cup along with Omloop van Borsele, the Joe Martin Stage Race and BMX, MTB and some bonus outrage. There’s also a hint of murder… basically it’s the best podcast we’ve recorded this week (probably).
