"Kristy Scrymgeour is a former cyclist, journalist, PR manager for HTC-Highroad, and now the owner and manager of the Specialized-lululemon team, who have just won two rounds of the women’s Road World Cup, the Crescent Vårgårda Team Time Trial and road race, with Chantal Blaak. I spoke to her about those two wins, the Project X Fundraiser to crowd-source support for the team next year, and much more. The full conversation will be put up as a podcast on my blog tomorrow, but just for the Café, you can read some of the conversation below."

"It’s been an incredible few weeks for Emma Pooley, first winning three stages in the Giro Rosa to demonstrate that she’s the best climber in the women’s peloton, then lining up for La Course – a race she helped to make happen – on the Champs-Elysées. So, it may come as a surprise to hear that she will retire after the Commonwealth Games road race on Sunday."

"Every day of the Giro Rosa, wifi permitting, Podium Café will be talking to ORICA-AIS riders Amanda Spratt and Valentina Scandolara. Today it’s Spratty’s turn to tell us about bouncing off walls, surprise climbs, and how the stage went - and we caught up with Vale to ask about her day in the break, and ending up in the Queen of the Mountains jersey."

"It’s hardly been an easy Giro Rosa so far, but today the peloton was ready for the first big climbing day, and it was another hot one. It was meant to be the day the General Classification was all shaken up, but would that be the case? Videos, photos, results and rider blogs - with some words just for Podium Café from our winner!"
