This week Sarah makes a foolish promise as we try to cover all of the rest of the 2016 Olympic racing and the various other races that took place since we last spoke. There’s the Olympic time trial, the track racing, the bmx, the mtb along with the Route de France, the Ladies Tour of Norway and the Open de Suede Vargarda. It’s a huge amount of racing and there’s a whole bunch of other stuff in there too. Brace yourselves for all the results that are fit to print (i.e. podcast). (1:23:21 MIN / 76.32 MB)

Hi everyone! Did you know that Sarah went to Norway? She survived the trolls, swam in a fjord and invaded Sweden; it was a busy weekend for her. Also there was a bike race there! In addition, we finish recapping the Route de France and then talk excitedly about some new developments from the UCI for 2016. And to top it all off we invent a new game called “But what does it mean for the Olympics?” – the first edition is all about Team USA. (1:20:03 MIN / 76.86 MB)

It’s been a couple of weeks since we last recorded (sorry, but sometimes we need to take a week off, catch our breath and regroup to get through to the end of the season – think of it like us having a rest day in the middle of the grand tour that is the season). Anyway, we catch up on ALL the racing since last time we spoke which includes the Ladies Tour of Norway, Vårgårda World Cups – Team Time Trial and Road Race, the last of this year’s MTB World Cups in Méribel, and even the Tour of the King Valley in the Australian National Road Series. We also discuss how far we’ve come in the last couple of years with improved video coverage and how that results in shifting our expectations from races (in a good way), and so much other stuff. It’s an amazing episode and it’s here for you to enjoy right now! (1:32:42 MIN / 89.00 MB)

This week we talk up a storm about the Ride London GP, the Route de France, Tour of Utah women’s race and a whole heap of mountain biking, BMX stuff, blogs, videos and… (much to his dismay) Dan’s love life. In Dan’s own words, this is our worst podcast ever (Sarah disagrees, she thinks it’s Brilliant!). And, as always, don’t forget to check out the veritable treasure trove of links, videos and things to look at below! (1:05:59 MIN / 63.35 MB)

We love this blog by Chloe Hosking, on dealing with disappointment at the Commonwealth Games – every time she writes a blog we think “best blog ever”, and then she does it again!
This week’s racing
2014 Junior Track World Championships
- All the results – and reports on the UCI site from Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 and Day 5.

Hi everyone! This week Sarah and I catch up on the Route de France, Junior Track Worlds in Glasgow and the Mont Sainte-Anne MTB World Cup races. I find out Sarah’s been seeing other podcasts behind my back and we argue about the podcast pre-nup. This may result in lawyers at 20 paces before it’s all said and done (depending on who can afford the best/most lawyers). We also talk about a whole bunch of interesting and cool things, from the SBS Cycling Central episode on women’s cycling through to the latest in transfer and stagiaire news. It’s another cracking episode with something for everyone. (1:28:53 MIN / 85.33 MB)

Ever wondered what we look like podcasting? Swordpanda drew us this, it’s eerily accurate
There are some fun videos around today, so here’s a collection – with some links for watching cycling live this week.
Firstly, a little UCI video about life on the road for women’s pro riders – with Katie Colclough of Specialized-lululemon and ORICA-AIS riders Jessie Maclean, Gracie Elvin, Sungeun Gu and Shara Gillow:
UPDATE! and here is video from Stage 1 of the Route de France, won by Giorgia Bronzini ahead of Valentina Scandolara and Emma Johansson:
There’s more video, with Evie Stevens translated into French, here, and more videos, that may only be viewable from France, on Le Blog de Gwéna.
This week Sarah and I discuss races in London and France (along with some others). Then I fail at live-ish Twitter searching and we discuss a whole bunch of ways in which you can help make the sport better. It’s good news everybody! (Also don’t forget to check all the links below, especially the things we forgot to mention in the podcast, particularly the links to live coverage of the junior track worlds!).
