Flèche Wounds

May 3 | Flèche Wounds is the fourth and final episode of The Cycling Podcast’s KM 0 ‘Survivors of Spring’ series, supported by WellbriX. Richard Moore travelled to the Ardennes to spend the day with the Canyon-SRAM team at one of the biggest races on the women’s racing calendar, Flèche Wallonne.

Included in their international line-up (six riders, six nationalities) was Hannah Barnes, riding only her second race after five months on crutches. One of the toughest races on the calendar was a daunting proposition for Barnes and we hear from her before and after her Women’s World Tour debut.

We also hear from the team’s managers, Ronny Lauke and Beth Duryea, their young American star, Alexis Ryan, Germany’s Lisa Brennauer and Tiffany Cromwell of Australia. And we hear from somebody who, in his role with bike sponsor Canyon, was helping out on the day – one Erik Zabel.
