Can you believe it’s been four years since we started this crazy adventure of doing a podcast about women’s cycling? Sarah and Dan take a moment to celebrate how far women’s cycling has come in that time and to reminisce a little about how they got here. From that we launch fully into catching up on the racing from the Tour of ChongMing Island, Vuelta Feminin Costa Rica, Tour of the Gila, BMX World Cup, para-cycling, the latest from the Lotto Cycling Cup and more. It’s been an amazing week to witness the growth and globalisation of cycling, and we’re putting it all down to the birthday of the podcast.

Hey team, what a huge week it’s been. Sarah and Dan are both on a bit of a comedown following all the action of worlds and, of course, the fact that there was some post-race polemica stuff. So, just to be fair, here’s a WARNING: This podcast may contain traces of rants (Sarah limits Dan to a maximum 5 minute rant, but he performs well in his race of truth, beating the clock with time to spare!). BUT we mostly talk about the Junior and Elite Women’s World Championship road races and a whole bunch of cool blogs, stories, videos and also the BMX Supercross World Cup at Chula Vista. Sarah also finally finds the ultimate justification for her default position of wanting everyone to win all the time. (1:15:34 MIN / 72.56 MB)

BMX Supercross World Cup – Chula Vista
Good news everyone! This week we talk in detail about Flèche Wallonne and the extensive tv coverage provided for the race this year (Sarah sets a limit on how much Dan’s allowed to rant, which he accepts gracefully and without comment). We also talk about the BMX Supercross Wold Cup in Manchester and the upcoming MTB Downhill racing in Cairns (and how EVERYTHING in Australia is trying to kill you). There’s blogs and videos from all over the place and two big interviews with Emma Pooley and Evelyn Stevens to highlight. As usual, there’s plenty of swearing, plenty of laughing and lots more, so strap in and prepare for almost as much mayhem as if you were sprinting over the Mur de Huy for the victory.
