Coach, Ruud Verhagen said: “The girls rode well today but the lead-out at the end was not perfect. We will assess what we did right and what we did wrong and look to learn from today.”

“As a team were very attentive today,” said Amy after the finish. “At the finish there was some miscommunication and as a result we did not get the sprint quite right. But I think we can be satisfied with the form.”

It’s this week’s episode of Dan’s and my women’s cycling podcast.  Dan describes it:

Podcast 2014 Episode 5 – What’s the Capital of Delaware?

Hi everybody! This week Sarah and I recap the highlights and tragedies of the Omloop. We also ambitiously try to (kinda) follow Le Samyn semi-live while we record. We talk about the Track World Championships, including stellar performances from Kelly Druyts, Amy Cure, Sarah Hammer and more. We talk about Richmond worlds and a whole bunch of awards of the film type and other types as well! We get into a weird conversation about US state capitals and Sarah baselessly accuses Dan of lying, so of course Dan responds by accusing Sarah of lying about lying. See if you can spot who is telling the truth. Oh, and for those wondering, the Capital of Delaware is Dover, although Dan claims partial credit because there is actually a Wilmington in Delaware.(1:12:32 MIN / 69.64 MB)

Even if you don’t like podcasts, we have tons of videos, links, blogs and news in the post - click through to our blog to see what we talked about (and some stuff we didn’t get around to)

"It’s been a huge weekend of racing, with Amy Pieters winning the first European race of the season, the Omloop het Nieuwsblad, in fine style, while over in Costa Rica, Olga Zabelinskaya won the stage race. Let me tell you what happened, and point you to videos, photos and other links - and if any virtual Directeur Sportifs have been wondering about their riders moonlighting at the Track World Champs, I can show you that, too…"
