This week’s episode covers a lot of historic moments in the midst of a very dynamic 2017 season. There’s Tour of the Gila in the US and Omloop van Borsele to cover off, along with the first ever women’s edition of Liege-Bastogne-Liege in all it’s conTEXT and glory. There’s some interesting articles from during the week including the latest edition of Ella’s SHE-cret Pro which seems to have stirred up a bit of controversy. In addition to which we take the time to appropriately thank the UCI for their help with making La Course more La Course-y than ever before.

This year following women’s cycling has got easier and more fun with the launch of Ella, the Cycling Tips women’s cycling site. Anne-Marije Rook is one of their two editors, Dutch journalist who races and rides around her home in Seattle.
We talked about how she got involved with the site, how it’s grown, challenges and goals, and of course her plans for the future. Of course our conversation took in a lot more, including the state of women’s cycling and what we love about it, and all kinds of things about the sport.
