This week we cover the results from Sweden with the Vargarda Team Time Trial, and the Road Race. We also have an interesting diversion into how the calendar shift of this race has changed the way it’s raced and the results. Ella CyclingTips this week had a really interesting interview with Leah Thorvilson, the Canyon-SRAM rider who was the winner of last year’s Zwift Academy. We discuss that interview and the broader impact of Zwift Academy on the sport, especially interesting as the second year of the program is due to start in September. As always, lots more fun, laughter and Australian weather updates included! (47:28 MIN / 43.50 MB)

13th August 2017
The Women’s Cycling Road WorldTour is in Scandinavia, this time in Sweden, and we can watch the Crescent Vårgårda WorldTour live in full!
The race starts at 09:35 Euro CEST (8:30am UK BST, 5:35pm Aussie AEST/03:35am EDT) and it’s live in full on Swedish TV station SVT1 & SVT Play (people outside Sweden may need a VPN to access). Then, an hour into the race, from 10:30 CEST/9:30am UK BST, it’s live on the Eurosport Player and on Eurosport 2 in some countries including UK, with more TV here. You can also look for streams here, here and here.
I love this race, especially with the new gravel sections. You can also follow on twitter with the #VargardaWWT and #UCIWWT hashtags, and of course the race twitter.
More info on the race site, including startlist, and here’s the Team Time Trial highlights:
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)
