Shirt week! How to buy 2015 women’s team kits

I do love my traditions, and one of them is running an early season voting thread to see which of the women’s top-tier pro team kits people like best.  This is what people thought last year, and I’ve just launched the 2015 peloton version here on Podium Café – click through and vote!  UPDATE!  And by popular demand, the voting post for the “best of the rest”! The posts are full of photos and videos of team launches and the kits in action, and the comments section has more kits people love (or don’t!) – but what if you want to wear some of the top tier 2015 women’s cycling team kits?  Well, here’s the simple guide to what’s available and how to buy it. Obviously it’s not all the teams, but if more teams open shops, I’ll definitely let you know.

(Want to buy 2014 kits?  I have posts about the Euro pro peloton, USA teams and UK kits)

No team shop yet, but if you want this kit, they say it’ll be available soon – maybe sign up to their newsletter so you’ll see as soon as it’s up.

Matrix Procycling

They’re a UCI team for the the first time this year, and while their first batch of pre-order kits have already sold out, they’ll be re-opening the ordering in March.  If you want a closer look, check out the jersey and bibshorts on Milltag.

Links to make you smile

In England it’s cold and dreary, in Australia it’s apparently far too hot, so we need some women’s cycling links to cheer us up.  Luckily I have some for you!  I’ll start with lip-synching, but there’s all kinds of things that made me happy this last month in here…

It’s team camp season, and just like they did in the stage races this year, Rabo-Liv set a high bar for other teams to reach….

while over in the USA, Lindsay Bayer is shaking it…

 

Same song, different version…  CX rider Ellen Noble had one of those embarrassing premature celebration moments, and Dirtwire made this video, showing how she vindicated herself.  Lovely interview at the end.

Podcast 2014 Episode 41 – WoW Part Two!

Podcast logoIt’s been a week of worldly indulgences and this week’s podcast is no exception, hell we’re barely a minute into things before Dan’s invoking our theoretical lawyers and claiming indemnities! Anyway, this week we recap the women’s trade team TTT, the junior women’s ITT, the Elite women’s ITT (where Dan rather belligerently changed the results and history to suit his preferred view of the race – also Sarah sounds her “Smugness Alert”) AND we preview the Road Race! Also there’s some complicated polemica-y stuff which is important but hard to talk about, so of course we discuss that. We also talk about how sometimes these harder stories don’t get reported much in the press, possibly because they’re so complex and there’s a lot of stuff you can’t explain easily or quickly. On top of all of that we have the latest transfer news and the week wouldn’t possibly be complete without a bonus survey, so we’ve put that in too! (1:17:42 MIN / 74.6 MB)
