2014 Podcast Episode 44 – You Transferred My Battlebike!

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowWe cover all the latest transfer news and what the hell it means for all these teams. (Who’s going to lead what now?) And more importantly what it means for us fans (MORE EXCITEMENT!) There’s racing to discuss, with the end of the MTB enduro series and the beginning of the European cyclocross season. This week it’s Sarah’s turn to go on a rant! (I’m sure you’ll be shocked to learn that it’s about para-cycling.) Also, we preview the 2015 racing calendar and declare it an early victory with more race days on the cards AND some very exciting looking new races to look forward to. (1:09:48 MIN / 67.01 MB)

Sarah’s collecting all the transfer news in a Podium Café post, and there’s tons of gossip, speculation and conversation in the comments.  This week’s big news was Wiggle Honda’s announcement that they’re hiring two-time Giro champion Mara Abbott and young British champion Anna Christian for 2015.  And Sharon Laws is another rider moving to Bigla

Podcast 2013 – Episode 40 – Festivus Crossmas

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowIt’s a Festivus miracle! (NOTE: Festivus miracles don’t actually exist). Dan’s been away so this week Sarah catches him up on all the track, paracycling, cyclocross, MTB and other news before Christmas takes over the schedule for the coming week. We talk Vos’ return to racing, Katie Compton in cross and sponsorship news for the road in 2014. Plus a whole bunch of other stuff including a philosophical discussion about whether the UCI deserves credit for doing things it’s supposed to do. Also at one point Sarah laughs uncontrollably for over 30 seconds. Merry Festivus/Crossmas/Christmas/Kwanzaa/Hannukah/Whatever/BahHumbug everyone! (51:53 MIN / 49.81 MB)
