Podcast 2014 Special Feature – Episode 56 – Sarah interviews Chloe Hosking

Aussie battler Chloe Hosking is a fan favourite, not just for her stubborn, “never-say-die” sprinting, but for the way she writes about women’s cycling.  Martin, one of my Patreon supporters, asked if I could interview her, and ask her all about joining Wiggle Honda for 2015, and the expansion of super-teams in the women’s peloton – so how could I say no?  Chloe is a lot of fun, loves to talk, and told me all about how she sees next year going, racing with Roxsolt and Wiggle for the Aussie summer season, as well as what she sees her role with the team will be for the Euro season.  We also talked about her blogging, the fall-out from those comments about Pat McQuaid, why you shouldn’t expect her to win in the Aussie National Road Race, but should definitely watch out for her in the Tour of Qatar, and a lot more!  We laugh a fair bit in this one too!

You can follow Chloe through her twitter, her instagram, and her excellent blog on her website – we talked about a lot of her posts, but especially her post on her influences – and this great profile of Ina-Yoko Teutenberg; dealing with disappointment; her  Women who blog about cycling list – and you should read these blogs about winning at the Lotto Belisol Belgium Tour and the Omloop van Borsele.  Really you should read them all…

Here are videos of that Borsele win

And if you want to know more about the Ladies Tour of Qatar, Chloe’s first UCI race of 2015, the videos from 2014 are in here, and the ones from 2013 are over on Podium Café.

Chloe has been racing the Aussie summer season with Roxsolt, and we were singing the praises of the man behind Roxsolt, Kelvin Rundle – follow his twitter, he really lives up to his name, @crazycyclefan.  And from 1st January 2015, Chloe will be with Wiggle Honda – follow their twitter too.

I’m funded to do these interviews thanks to my incredible Patreon supporters.  Thanks to all of them, and especially Graeme for the question and Martin for suggesting I interview Chloe!

Podcast Episode 22 – Sarah Knows US Geography Good

Podcast logoHi everyone! This week we race the clock to try and cover all the racing we saw during the week. After a couple of slow weeks, it’s back to full tilt with the Boels Rentals Hills Classic, Gooik, Philadelphia, the Marianne Vos Classic, Edinburgh’s round of the Tour Series, Grand Prix de Plumelec and lots more. There’s also a bunch of great blogs, videos, podcasts and stuff too. Even with all of that going on there’s time for Sarah to prove that she knows US geography like (literally) nobody else! Somehow we manage to keep it under an hour without skimping on the laughs, the bickering or the swearing so strap on your headphones and enjoy! (57:09 MIN / 54.87 MB) Don’t forget to tip your waitstaff!
