Summary Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2014

All the wins and post-race interviews (with sub-titles!) from this year’s race - Ellen van Dijk, Lisa Brennauer, Marianne Vos, Kelly Druyts, Jolien d’Hoore and Emma Johansson - and Evelyn Stevens winning the GC.

(Unusually international version this year - only 2 Dutch stage wins, and only 1 in the GC top 10! Fun!)

The latest women’s cycling podcast from Dan and me - he describes it

Podcast 2014 Episode 38 – Look At All The World Cups

This week we talk our way through Plouay and what the world cups have been like this year (hint: they’ve been amazing!). Then we talk about the Para-cycling Road World Championships in Greenville, South Carolina. And proving that it’s been another action packed week of women’s cycling, we then turn our attention to the Tour de l’Ardeche and Boels Rental Ladies Tour, both of which started during the week. Of course it wouldn’t be a podcast if there wasn’t a bit of mountain biking and a whole lot of insanity in there too (so there is). We talk about our most amazing bits of transfer news and of course rumours. It’s a big episode and there’s something in it for (literally) everyone, so if you’re an everyone, or related to an everyone, you should probably listen up. (1:33:59 MIN / 90.23 MB)
