We’re back after a small break due to illness and straight into a wealth of racing information with all of the main highlights from the Paralympics in Rio. Sarah’s collected a heap of information and as much video as possible, so do make sure to check it all out. We also have MTB worlds to cover, the Lotto Belgium Tour, The Madrid Challenge, and the Giro Toscana. In time-trial action there’s the Chronos de Champenois, and to top it all off cyclocross season is kicking off. Brace yourselves kids, this one’s a heck of a ride. (1:02:41 MIN / 57.40 MB)

Video collections from:
We loved this video from our friend Coreen Mazzochi, who made Giro Toscana highlights videos in the collection above, but also made this backstage video diary, showing what it’s like to cover the race:
Almost too much women’s cycling to follow in the second week of September 2016, but that means we have an absolute ton of video to watch too! Road, track, MTB, and cyclocross – wow!
It’s a huge podcast this week as there’s so much racing to cover and to look forward to! We first take a look at the Lotto Belgium Tour, Giro Toscana, Chrono Champenois, the Madrid Challenge, para-cycling and look ahead to all of the excitement of the road world championships in the USA. There’s some rum, plenty of swearing and hilarity going on as well. Sadly Dan ‘accidentally’ stopped recording just before Sarah declared herself victorious and so the episode title acknowledges his loss. (1:23:59 MIN / 80.62 MB

Things we talked about this week
This week’s racing
Videos, photos and results from the Lotto Belgium Tour, Para-cycling Road World Cup #4 (Pietermaritzburg), Giro della Toscana, Molly Shaffer Van Houweling’s Hour Record and the Madrid Challenge are all collected in this post.
There was also racing in Australia, the NRS Amy’s Otway Tour (Great Ocean Road, wow!)
Honestly by far the biggest story of the week was the final stage of the Giro della Toscana, and the rider protest so we take a detailed and quite angry look into what led up to it and once we’re on a ranty roll, well we keep going! Which means we launch into exactly why Brian Cookson’s words about his track record of promoting women’s cycling in Britain leave us scratching our heads a little (Dan translates for Sarah’s edification). Also somewhere along the way Dan coins the phrase “morality stumble” – we’ll leave it to you to decide if it’s a stumble into, or out of, morality. And in an attempt to finish the show before Sarah actually does need medical assistance we quickly mention a few of the good stories we’ve seen during the week. Prepare to gnash your teeth!

(In fact this week’s podcast is SO ranty that Sarah especially requested I find a soothing music video for you in case of emergencies, so here’s a rather splendid cello cover of Metallica’s ‘The Day That Never Comes’ which sort of seems appropriate)
