Podcast Special Feature – Episode 23 – Sarah Interviews Ashleigh Moolman

Hi everyone! Dan’s still bouncing all over Australia so we’ve made a slight change to our podcast schedule. We’ll be recording and posting a new episode this weekend, but in the meantime Sarah’s been busy keeping up her series of special one-on-one interviews. This week she talks with South African national champion (and African continental champion) Ashleigh Moolman about upcoming races like the Emakumeen Bira, her intimidating maths skills and how a nasty horse-riding accident changed her perspective on life. As regular listeners know, we’re big fans of Ash and not just her riding, but also her friendly and positive manners, along with her excellent social media. This is another great interview and well worth a listen. (49:38 MIN / 47.66 MB)

If you would rather read this interview, there’s  a transcript over on Podium Café – part 1 is here.  UPDATE!  And Part 2 is here

You can read more about Ash on her excellent blog , where there are so many great posts – head in and have a look.  She’s got a fantastic twitter, too, and you can also follow her adventures through the Hitec Products website and twitter.

Last year Ash won the Boels Rental Hills Classic, and came third in the Flèche Wallonne World Cup, and Stage 4 of the Giro Rosa – watch the videos here

and here’s Sarah’s interview with Ash after Flèche, on Podium Café.

You can follow the Emakumeen Bira with our Podium Café friends, Babelia, Marcos and Saul – follow them on twitter through those links, and Babelia through the Road & Mud twitter account. Of course I’ve added them all to my live race tweeting twitter list, and we’ll have a race thread here on the Café too.  There is information on the race website, and previews on

And Road & Mud has a history of the Basque races, in Spanish or via google.  And if you didn’t see if last year, or want to be reminded of it, check out Saul’s article on being at the race, right here on the Café!

Podcast 2013 Episode 17 – No Liability Accepted In Any Jurisdiction

Podcast logo Ok team, it’s another big week in podcast HQ. First off the wonderful Kathryn Bertine drops by to talk all things documentarian, cycling, Olympics and general awesome with us. Personal favourites are when she talks about some of the work she’s been doing in St Kitts and Nevis to help provide opportunities for young aspiring cyclists to get support, training and equipment; and also later when I put her on the spot by asking if all this experience in actually doing something that helps cycling might mean she’d be interested in taking a run at the UCI Presidency. In addition to Kathryn, we cover the Philly Classic race and Durango-Durango before peeking ahead at the start of the Emakumeen Bira. And what podcast is complete without a proper rant? So I (Dan) go on a bit of spree about how I don’t care how good Cookson is, he’s still not different enough to McQuaid. Of course it sounds better with all the swearwords left in so you should click below to listen to it in all its glory! (1:23:09 MIN / 79.82 MB)
