Sarah interviews… Helen Wyman, on her 2017

British cyclocross rider Helen Wyman has always been a fan favourite, and it seems like her racing is getting better than ever.   Winning her fourth Koppenbergcross this season, she was on the podiums of the last two Cyclocross World Cups, and with the weather turning wet, rainy and muddy, just as she likes it, this could be just the beginning of an exciting season.

We talked about what’s made a difference, and how the sport has changed over the last five years – including how Helen’s work on the UCI Cyclocross Commission has contributed to that.   It’s not all 100% positive, and we also talked about the changes Helen would like to see in the future, as well as losing her sponsor at a tricky time.

Sarah interviews… Vélofocus’ Sean Robinson on 2017 in women’s cycling

Last week Dan and I podcasted about our favourite racing moments of 2017, but I really wanted to hear about it from other people’s points of view, so I asked Sean Robinson, who, with Balint Hamvas, runs Vélofocus, which take my favourite women’s road cycling images.

Sean has a unique perspective of races, and we talked about his highs and lows of the season, how he thinks 2017 was different, and who we should look out for in 2018.
