2014 UCI Womens Road World Cup World Cup - Round 6 Sparkassen Giro Bochum

26 minutes UCI video, including profile of German rider Lisa Brennauer

Audio

It’s the latest podcast from Dan and me, and holy moly, there was so much live racing we had a ton of things to talk about!  Dan describes it - can click through to our blog for all the videos and links and everything else - road, MTB and BMX, wow!

Podcast 2014 Episode 33 – Comrade Sarah and Global Politics

It’s a perilous episode this week as we discuss the Commonwealth Games ITT and Road Races in all their glory. Both races were quite significant to us, as they were the last time Emma Pooley would be racing at the top levels of the sport, representing England and (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!) bringing home medals. This week there was also the Sparkassen Giro World Cup in Germany, which provided a great spectacle in sprinting and we discuss the importance of last-ditch attacks in igniting races. Also the Mont-Sainte-Anne Downhill MTB took place this week, and the racing was incredibly close with less than 1 second separating the podium places. There’s an amazing video in the links below that you should definitely watch as you listen. We also accidentally stray temporarily into the fraught world of global politics AND Sarah once again demonstrates her knowledge of North American geography. It’s a very long episode this week, so you may want to make sure you’ve got extra beer on hand before you press play. (1:49:43 MIN / 105.33 MB)
