This week we cover the results from Sweden with the Vargarda Team Time Trial, and the Road Race. We also have an interesting diversion into how the calendar shift of this race has changed the way it’s raced and the results. Ella CyclingTips this week had a really interesting interview with Leah Thorvilson, the Canyon-SRAM rider who was the winner of last year’s Zwift Academy. We discuss that interview and the broader impact of Zwift Academy on the sport, especially interesting as the second year of the program is due to start in September. As always, lots more fun, laughter and Australian weather updates included! (47:28 MIN / 43.50 MB)

After we had livestreaming of the first three round of the 2017 Women’s WorldTour, Strade Bianche, the Ronde van Drenthe and Trofeo Alfredo Binda, unfortunately we won’t get much for Round 4, Gent-Wevelgem. But I’ve collected videos, photos and race reports from the WorldTour, and also some snippets from Round 2 of the Junior Nations Cup, and the U17 women’s races.
First, the WorldTour – please click on the Sporza highlights, to show that there is an audience for the sport. And here are the UCI highlights:
This week we catch up on all the attacks (so many attacks!) from Trofeo Moreno and Trofeo Binda last weekend. You know racing is intense when top riders are gunning it on the front just to settle down the sheer number of attacks! The Dwars Door Vlaanderen started while we were recording, so we give that a moment’s consideration and also take a look ahead at Gent-Wevelgem on this weekend. There’s a heap of cool media and some epic races including the ABSA Cape Epic and the Indian-Pacific Wheel Race; and of course heaps more! (1:21:45 MIN / 74.85 MB)

This week’s women’s cycling news and links round-up
It’s Mothers’ Day this weekend in the UK, so if there’s a cycling-loving mum in your life, check out the Shopping section of the site for things we’ve seen and liked – how about a 2017 WorldTour team kit, or presents that help pro women cyclists, or everyday women’s cycling? Yes, I know, you might not have ordered in time, but you can always order something and give her a card saying something’s on the way!
