The Cycling Podcast Féminin - Episode 1

Jun 14, 2016, 11:42 AM

The first Cycling Podcast Féminin, with Orla Chennaoui and Richard Moore, looks at the dominant force in women’s racing, Dutch team Boels-Dolmans, profiles the exciting young British squad, Drops, and discusses the Women’s Tour with race director Guy Elliott.

Reporter Owen Rogers meets world champion Lizzie Armitstead and her teammate Megan Guarnier. Between them, Armitstead and Guarnier have won five of the nine events held so far this season in the new Women’s World Tour. We also hear from another Boels-Dolmans rider, world hour record holder Evelyn Stevens, and Wiggle-High5 star Emma Johansson.

Meanwhile, Lionel Birnie tells the story of the first Tour de France Féminin in 1984, and Richard meets a star of the future, Abi Van Twisk, at her workplace – a florist in central London – and speaks to Van Twisk’s Drops in-form teammate Alice Barnes and the driving force behind the team, Bob Varney.

The Cycling Podcast Féminin is supported by Rowe & King Cycling Coaching, tailored training by Luke Rowe and Dani King:
