Podcast 2016 Episode 26 – The Olympic Road Race Time Trial Potato

August 9, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we do a full recap of the excitement and drama that was the 2016 Olympic Women’s Road Race in Rio. From the amazing efforts of Trixi Worrack, Marianne Vos, Ellen van Dijk, Mara Abbott and so many more, to the terrifying crash that changed the entire picture of the race we talk through each moment that lead to the final result. We also take some time to talk through the coming Individual Time Trial, who the top contenders are and who our favourites are likely to be. We include a couple of dark horse picks as well. It’s all Olympics this week, in all its glory. (1:32:05 MIN / 84.31 MB)

Because the Olympics are tough like this, we can’t find unrestricted videos of the race – it is what it is, hopefully highlights and the full race turns up on the Olympic YouTube at some point, like the London 2012 one did.  If you want highlights, check with your local Olympic broadcaster, and we have found these (they may be geo-restricted, but there are ways round that):

Podcast 2016 Episode 25 – The Tropical Classic

August 3, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logoThis week we recap the Prudential Ride London Classique 2016, and Sarah shares her experiences with live commentating at the race. We then move into a full preview and breakdown of the 2016 Olympic Road Race, the teams, the riders and the course. We run down our list of favourites and riders to watch, and unsurprisingly there’s a lot of them. We also talk about one of the bigger news stores of the week which could simply be called Whereabouts in the World is Lizzie? But all is not lost because your intrepid podcasters manage to find a silver lining even there. (1:24:05 MIN / 76.9 MB)

We talked about Lizzie Armitstead’s missed tests, and there’s more info on the UKAD statement, on INRNG and the Telegraph – but we hadn’t seen her own statement at that point, which answers most of Sarah’s  remaining questions (we still want to see the CAS decision!)

Podcast 2016 Episode 24 – Horrific Good

July 27, 2016 2 comments

Podcast logo We’ve had a week off due to migraination and so there’s twice as much racing to get through. We take a romp through La Course, Thuringen Rundfahrt, Tour de Pologne and the BeNe Ladies Tour, all while discussing the finer points of multi-year growth plans and the overall development of the sport. Of course, this is all a precursor to the climactic Olympic Games racing that is just around the corner, but first we preview the Prudential Ride London Classique coming up on the weekend. So many things to discuss, it’s an epic episode! (1:07:23 MIN / 61.60 MB)

Podcast logoThis week we catch up on all of the remaining stages from the 2016 Giro Rosa including the infamous Mortirolo stage. There’s drama, there’s intrigue, there’s a few questions about what the hell actually happened. In the end though, we get a winner and a race that truly ticked all the boxes. There’s a huge amount of other things we manage to briefly mention, but as always, hit the post on our website to get all the videos and stories from the week of women’s cycling!

Podcast 2016 Episode 21 – The Giro Rosa Will Be An Eyesore

June 29, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logo This week Sarah and Dan swear not to talk politics (it’s too depressing) but they do tackle the wealth of national championships results that occurred over the weekend. There’s a lot of really interesting results from Europe, Asia and around the world. We also dig deep into a preview of the Giro Rosa and who will (and won’t) be there, and what will make the race interesting. One thing we know is that it’s going to be super exciting and interesting!

Sarah’s video collection from the 2016 National Road Championships weekend.

Guide to following and watching the 2016 Giro Rosa.

Cyclingnews‘ new women’s cycling portal – and that great article by Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio we loved.

Talking television with Helen Wyman

Podcast interview logoThe 2016 Aviva Women’s Tour was a fantastic race, and Dan and I talked about the racing action in our latest podcast (spoiler alert: so exciting!) – but I had a pretty unique view of the race this year, because I was doing commentary for ITV4.  I was doing the “as live” commentary with Hugh Porter, while cyclocross superstar and general all-round cycling guru Helen Wyman did the presenting at the start and finish of each show with Ned Boulting.  I had so many questions about her experience – so we chatted about it all, with a foray at the end into how the TV coverage of women’s cyclocross has already changed the sport after one season – have a listen!

 

 

If you missed any of our TV commentary, they’ll be archived for a few more weeks here on the ITV Hub.  You can also find tons of clips from the race, including highlights with some of me, on the Aviva Women’s Tour YouTube – and of course more fantastic media on the race website.

Find out more about Helen on her website and by following her great twitter, and check out her fantastic cycling kit collaboration with Velocio Apparel, for women and for men…

As always, I am funded to do this kind of thing by my wonderful Patreon supporters – thank you so much!  You can join them from as little as £/$/€ 2 a month, over here.

June 22, 2016 Leave a comment

Podcast logo This week we’re back after Sarah’s been working doing the commentary for the television coverage of the Aviva Women’s Tour. We discuss all things British stage racing. We also catch up on the Giro del Trentino and the North Star GP. We take a quick look ahead and start to prepare ourselves for the excitement of the Giro Rosa. Our title this week is a tribute to the amazing Alison Tetrick who raced most of the Women’s Tour with four cracked ribs. (1:11:19 MIN / 65.3 MB)
