"So there I am looking for the broom wagon and it never comes!!! So now, I’m in the middle of the Netherlands somewhere, not quite sure how to get back to the team’s location but I would figure it out. So I keep looking back and there is regular traffic starting back up now, passing me and I keep looking back to see if any of the vehicles look like team related vehicles. FOUND ONE! I flagged a random guy down and he asked if I wanted a ride back - YES please:). So he hops out, puts my bike in the back, I get in the front seat with his black lab - Chipo - and we head down the road. His daughter was in the race and she wasn’t too far in front of me, they are from the Netherlands and this is her first year racing. You gotta get to know someone if you are riding in their car right?! :) So that was Gelderland….."

This week’s women’s cycling podcast - Dan describes it…

Podcast 2014 Episode 14 – I Will NOT Buy Flèche Wallonne a Beer

Good news everyone! This week we talk in detail about Flèche Wallonne and the extensive tv coverage provided for the race this year (Sarah sets a limit on how much Dan’s allowed to rant, which he accepts gracefully and without comment). We also talk about the BMX Supercross Wold Cup in Manchester and the upcoming MTB Downhill racing in Cairns (and how EVERYTHING in Australia is trying to kill you). There’s blogs and videos from all over the place and two big interviews with Emma Pooley and Evelyn Stevens to highlight. As usual, there’s plenty of swearing, plenty of laughing and lots more, so strap in and prepare for almost as much mayhem as if you were sprinting over the Mur de Huy for the victory. (1:03:59 MIN / 61.42 MB)

Click through to our blog for all the links to things we talked about (and some we didn’t get around to)
