Sarah interviews…. Ellen Noble on her amazing cyclocross season

Podcast interview logoThe 2016/17 cyclocross season has been an amazing one for Ellen Noble, the 21-year-old American rider who not only won the U23 Cyclocross World Cup series (and came 6th overall in the elite women’s series), but finished the season coming second in the U23 Cyclocross World Championships, with some incredible descending skills.

She tells me all about how it’s been, what’s helped her get here, and where she wants to go next, with a lot more – including how she felt when the USA cycling media said there was no chance of an American getting onto the podium at the U23 Worlds!  Listen to our interview here:

 

 

You can find out more about Ellen on her website, and follow her adventures on her twitter, her instagram and her facebook.  Ellen’s teams are Aspire Racing in cyclocross, and she’ll race the 2017 road season with Colavita Bianchi.

Videos and media from the 2017 Cyclocross World Championships

I still can’t get over the amazing women’s racing from the Bieles 2017 Cyclocross World Championships!  The U23 women’s race was incredible enough, and then the Elite Women’s was just completely spectacular – one of the very, very best races I’ve ever seen in any kind of cycling, women’s or men’s.  It had everything – riding skills, drama, surprises, and a worthy winner, on a fantastic course.  I’m still getting the hairs stand up on the back of my neck, thinking of it!

If you missed any of it, here’s my collection of videos, photos and other media.  There’s a lot of it!  I’m start with the Elite women, and then move onto the U23s.  As always, if you seen anything I’ve missed, tell me in the comments, or on twitter, and I’ll edit them in.

There are lots of fantastic videos on the Cyclocross Magazine YouTube and interviews with the Canadians, on the Canadian Cyclist YouTube, from before the races and after.
