Podcast 2015 Episode 13 – Pigs and Spiders

The-Unofficial,-Unsanctioned-Women's-UCI-Cycling-ShowHi team! Dan’s been sick so this week we catch up on heaps of racing all over the planet, from China to Europe to North America. Along the way we explain some Aussie colloquialisms and have quite a bit of fun. It’s fair to say that we get pretty excited about the upcoming weekend of racing and well, everything really.

Podcast 2014 Episode 57 – Twas the Eve Before Christmas

Podcast logoThere’s been heaps going on in the world of women’s cycling. Cyclocross, parties, forthcoming races and so on. We recap 2014 and take a look at what’s up in January 2015. Jokes, swears and happy thoughts are plentiful! Sarah gives Dan the WORST Christmas present ever (unless it was a reverse present to herself, which does sort of make sense). Also, Dan shares a meme. Thanks for joining us in 2014, we look forward to talking more amazing cycling stuff with you in 2015. Have a safe and happy holiday season. And stay warm/cool as your preferences dictate!
