Good news everyone! This week we talk in detail about Flèche Wallonne and the extensive tv coverage provided for the race this year (Sarah sets a limit on how much Dan’s allowed to rant, which he accepts gracefully and without comment). We also talk about the BMX Supercross Wold Cup in Manchester and the upcoming MTB Downhill racing in Cairns (and how EVERYTHING in Australia is trying to kill you). There’s blogs and videos from all over the place and two big interviews with Emma Pooley and Evelyn Stevens to highlight. As usual, there’s plenty of swearing, plenty of laughing and lots more, so strap in and prepare for almost as much mayhem as if you were sprinting over the Mur de Huy for the victory.

This week’s women’s cycling news, videos and links….
We forgot to mention this, but truthfully, we both found it so weird that we’re not sure what we would have said anyway – but we love Ellen van Dijk! Her bizarre interaction in a beauty salon
Marianne Vos‘ roadtrip with a bunch of cycling fans – videos: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4
Meet the Rabo-Liv 2014 team
This week we’re not podcasting, but we’ve had all kinds of news and videos from women’s cycling in the last week or so – so here’s a random round-up, with videos, blogs, articles and all kinds of things I’ve liked in the last week in women’s cycling – road, crits, MTB, BMX, breakfast tacos, how to cool down a laptop and more!
This week’s racing
No video yet, but Emma Johansson won, for the second year in a row. She was racing with the Swedish National Team, but still has a race report on the ORICA-AIS website, and there’s a race report from Hitec too. Full results on the race website.
GP Comune di Cornaredo
UPDATE! Another video, from Wiggle Honda
Race report on Tiffany Cromwell’s website – Results on CyclingFever
Delray Beach Twilight
The first round of the USA Crits, the Delray Beach Twilight, was livestreamed, and you can watch the full race video – the women start around 2:30:00 – or just the women’s highlights
It’s an epic and epically rambly show this week with a discussion of the Drenthe series of races. We also talk El Salvador, cyclocross and Clara’s (Hughes that is) Big Ride. We ask you to weigh in on whether or not toasters are sexist. Sarah accuses Dan of being evil and we chat about Sarah’s podcasting exploits, cycling themed cakes, team launches, cool videos, amateur dentistry and snakes that eat crocodiles! Basically this podcast contains all the news and information you need to get you through the week! It’s a long one but we’re pretty sure you’re going to enjoy it, we sure did!
