[It’s]Very steep, yeah. But it would be ok as a Time Trial, it’s just with other people in the way, that’s the problem!

And the wall of noise, it’s really cool for us - it’s a bit like Flanders, or the World Championships, in that having all those people there, it’s awesome. That’s what I would like to see the sport have more often, is races on the same day as men’s races. And it’s organised by ASO, who organise the Tour, so it’s a great race, and I’m really looking forward to it from that respect, I’m just worried about the prospect of not doing very well!

Part 2 of the transcript of my interview with Emma Pooley - you can read Part 1 on Podium Café or Listen to the whole interview as a podcast on my blog

"Emma Pooley is one of the most interesting riders in the peloton, the 2010 World Time Trial Champion and 2008 Olympic ITT silver medallist, who’s won some of the biggest races in the women’s calendar, including the Tour de l’Aude Grand Tour, and World Cups including the Trofeo Alfredo Binda, Flèche Wallonne and the GP de Plouay, combining climbing skills with suicide attacks. In part 1 of our interview she tells us all about what she was doing in her “reduced season”, including surviving finishing her PhD, running marathons in snowstorms, campaigning for women’s cycling, and much more."
