It’s an awesome episode this week as we discuss We talk ChongMing Island Tour and World Cup, Tour of California, Venezuela and European racing. It’s big! We also play a fantastic game called “How many continents can Sarah offend in one podcast?” Place your bets now and press play to find out if you’re right! Also, at some point Dan uses the word “apace” (true story)! (1:17:55 MIN / 74.82 MB)

This week’s racing
Videos from each of the stages by Wiggle Honda
This week Sarah begged me to name the episode “Donate your mountains” but that just doesn’t work because she ‘s in a stomping mood, mostly due to a lack of video from China this year. But even without video there was some great racing and lots to talk about. The Tour of Chongming Island and the Chongming World Cup, the Trofee Maarten Wynants, Battle on the Border and even more. We ponder the big questions like “With so many photographers and video cameras at Chongming, where did all the video and photos disappear to?” and “Is Point Danger to Mount Warning the name of the first stage of Battle on the Border or the name of a Queensland sex education textbook?” Enjoy!

Next week’s racing:
(Why so little information? Those 3 UCI road races don’t have websites, although of course Cycling Fever have pulled together whatever startlists they can find. I’ve a feeling we’ll have to wait for results to find anything about them – and yes, we really DO believe that all races and teams should have to have evidence of at least a basic website before they get UCI status, and have to provide a basic level of info as part of that deal)
Hi everyone! After Sarah’s leave of absence to go be awesome with the Friend’s Life Women’s Tour she reunites with Dan to relive all the drama and triumph of an amazing race. We go over all of the events of every stage and discuss what this might mean for the future of women’s racing. In the face of crowds comparable to those last seen at the Olympic Games, and media coverage from the major news outlets, not just the cycling press, look how far women’s cycling has come in the two years since we started talking shit on the internet! (Not that we’re claiming credit, but two years ago we didn’t have this podcast and we didn’t have the Friends Life Women’s Tour either… draw your own conclusions). We also squeeze in some time to talk quickly about Chongming Island and the Tour of California and take a quick look ahead at the racing coming up. It’s a big episode but it’s well worth the investment. Don’t forget to check the links below because they’ll lead you to that rarest of all treats in women’s cycling… comprehensive video coverage!
