Dokumentar - Det Ulige Cykelløb (by feltetdk)

Danish documentary on the state of women’s cycling there, and why there’s such a pay disparity between the men and women.  In Danish - more about the film here, or via google translate

Interview with Aurelia Bulbarelli, Deputy Director of Italian TV station RAI Sport, on why he’s not happy with the TV coverage of the 2013 Road Cycling World Championships provided by InFront - including being especially annoyed that the Junior women’s and men’s road races weren’t filmed. 

It’s in Italian, or read it in English via Google Translate

In this week’s Road Worlds women’s cycling podcast, Dan and I got a bit overexcited, and let out innuendoes get well out of hand!  Dan describes it:

Podcast 2013, Episode 33 - The Shutdown

This week we uncover the real reason for the US government shutdown and then we get stuck into recapping all the amazing racing that happened at worlds. The Junior Women’s race and the Elite Women’s race. It was epic and there’s lot to enjoy and discuss. From Monique Hanley live-tweeting the junior race through to the amazing range of domestiques and top stars who made the Elite race SO FUCKING EXCITING(!!!), we’re definitely still basking in the afterglow of good race. We also take some time to consider some of Brian Cookson’s recent comments regarding women’s cycling and the level of internal attention and support it currently receives from the UCI (HINT: Pick a number and then go lower. Lower. Lower. Still lower. Ok, now divide that number by 2.). But then we resolve to finish on a good note so we celebrate Tracey Gaudry being appointed as a Vice-President of the UCI and being on the road commission. Enjoy! (1:26:08 MIN / 82.68 MB)


Click through to our blog for all the links from this week, a load of stuff that we didn’t talk about but did like.  Or if you want your words podcast with less searing, no innuendoes & more (sensible) talk about the men’s race, I’m also on the Velocast Eurosport podcast

"While the UCI Congress was going on, and on, and ON, the junior women were racing their Road cycling World Championships. In some ways it was the most interesting course – no run-in, just 5 laps of the hilly finishing course. And even though we couldn’t watch it live, Monique Hanley’s tweets and Giulia de Maio‘s livetext updates on TuttoBici made the race sing."
