Podcast 2014, Episode 4 – Always Send Whisky

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowThis week we brace ourselves because spring is about to be sprung and cobbles are about to be flung because the Omloop Het Nieuewsblad is on Saturday! We take a moment to imagine what a women’s edition of Paris-Roubaix might look like. We also talk virtual director sportif, track worlds, Oceania championships, horse heads and Koppenbergcross equality! It’s a huge week and there’s so much going on, you need to make sure that you check all the links, videos, photos and things below. (1:16:14 MIN / 73.18 MB)

Cyclocross

The last cyclocross race of the season – Sluitingprijs Oostmalle, where Sanne Cant won the overall 2013/14 bpost bank trofee series.  There’s a little video clip of the women and the junior & u23 men on Sporza, and this 4-minute video looking at Cant’s season-long duel with Helen Wyman to win the series, and clips of Oostmalle (Sanne talking in Dutch, Helen in English)

There are some lovely photos of the Sluitingprijs by Balínt Hamvas on his site cyclephotos.co.uk. If you like cyclocross, or know someone who does, you can pre-order Balínt’s 2013-14 season book – with words by our friend Caro, who’s the reason Sarah’s into CX in the first place.

Podcast 2014, Episode 3 – We need to talk to each other!?

Podcast logoIt’s official! The season has started! The Ladies Tour of Qatar is now over and so we talk racing, deserts, camels, worlds in 2016 and heaps of interviews and stories we’ve seen around in the last week or so. Dan accidentally makes a very dirty camel joke, which he admits is actually better than the drinking joke that he was actually trying to make. We also talk about mental health, politics and whether it’s possible to write a book of the entire cycling season in the style of The Odyssey. So basically it’s exactly like every other podcast, except with normal levels of swearing restored! Enjoy! (1:07:11 MIN / 64.50 MB)
