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)

I have Giro Rosa withdrawal symptoms….  here’s the latest women’s cycling podcast from Dan and me - Dan describes it….

Podcast 2014 Episode 29 – Big Enough For Polemica

What a Giro Rosa this year! This week Sarah and I talk about the spectacular racing, with several surprises. Among the reasons to celebrate, we enjoy the fact that the race is big enough to now generate International Fan Polemica ™ about tactics! How cool is that?! We do take the time to break down our view of events on the “controversial” stage 9 (spoiler alert: we didn’t find it that controversial really). BUT, even if all this does is encourage more international fans to love their favourite riders even more and wish for victory over their apparent nemeses, then YAY! In addition to recapping the rest of the Giro, we also talk European Championships and go through the first couple of stages from Thüringen Rundfahrt (a race close to Dan’s beer-soaked heart) and note the huge range of races coming up shortly, including La Course by the Tour de France and the Commonwealth Games. It’s a huge episode, but it’s worth the listen, if only to make comprehensive notes to tell Sarah and Dan exactly why they’re wrong about everything. (Warning:  if you’re new to our ‘cast, it does have a bit of swearing!) (1:32:46 MIN / 89.06 MB)
