It’s the Giro Rosa this week, ten days of grueling racing in Italy, the biggest women’s stage race in the world, and one of the best ways to keep up with the action is the daily highlights videos on the UCI YouTube.
These are part of their commitment to supporting the Women’s WorldTour, and this year, they’re made by Rose Manley, of InCycle TV. I’ve always enjoyed Rose’s work, so I was delighted when she came on the podcast and told me all about the effort that goes into producing these, and the features she’s been making on various riders throughout the season.
It’s a hard job, for sure, but one that’s so valuable, and I loved her walking through what her (VERY long) day at a race is like, and the highs and lows of working on the WorldTour this season. Here’s hoping she’s able to get some sleep in Italy!

We talked about three specific features that were highlights of Rose’s 2017 so far – the profiles of Kasia Niewiadoma before Strade Bianche, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio talking about her recovery from her horrible accident, and hanging out with Coryn Rivera at home in California:
