Podcast 2017 Episode 23 – The Humblebrag Episode

Look, we do understand that not all weeks can be huge weeks of racing, but honestly this week was definitely a HUGE week of racing. We had stage racing at the BeNe Ladies Tour in the Netherlands and Belgium. We also had the Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour in East Germany. With races suiting different types of riders and different types of racing there was no shortage of surprises and feats of phenomenal prowess to be impressed by. All of that before we get into the high mountains for the Col d’Izoard and La Course by Le Tour de France. We also quickly cover some Canadian racing and talk about a couple of other news items from the week. (1:03:46 MIN / 58.39 MB)

2015 Boels Rental Ladies Tour – videos, photos and more

Last week was jam packed with amazing women’s cycling, and in the Netherlands it was the last Dutch race of the year – four tough sprinty stages, and ITT and then the final stage all over the glorious Valkenburg hills…  all with the Dutch weather making the racing hard, and the peloton making it even harder with 1000 attacks.  I’ve got videos, photos, results and more, so read on…

Boels Rental Ladies Tour

First the whole-race highlights – but there’s LOTS more from each stage too

Stage 1

Videos!  Stage 1 winner interview with Jolien D’hoore – and watch the finish sprint and podium with second-placed Lucy Garner.

Podcast 2015 Episode 9 – Technically Germany

Podcast logoHey team, it’s only fair that we warn you straight up this week might be one of our best episodes ever (especially with the epic troll Sarah pulls on Dan about two-thirds of the way through). Sarah’s just got back from volunteering at the Energiewacht Tour (or possibly from Technically Germany, though Dan’s suspicious that it’s not a real place) and there’s so much to talk about. Sarah’s sleep deprived and Dan’s coffee deprived. Somehow we manage to discuss the race in detail and laugh maniacally along the way. It’s probably the fault of the seals. We also quickly recap Redlands and some other stuff. (1:17:11 MIN / 74.1 MB)
