The Cycling Podcast Féminin – Episode 6

Nov 16, 2016, 03:56 PM

Episode six of The Cycling Podcast Féminin celebrates the careers of some of the riders who retired at the end of the 2016 season, though there’s also an interview with somebody who is at the pinnacle of her career: Laura Kenny (formerly Trott). The four-times Olympic gold medallist spoke to Orla Chennaoui about life-post Rio and why we are unlikely to see her in a road race any time soon.

We hear from the silver medallist and fourth-place finisher from the Rio road race, Sweden’s Emma Johansson and American Mara Abbott, both of whom are bowing out of the sport at the highest level. And there’s an interview with Finnish rider Lotta Lepistö, the world road race bronze medallist who was shamefully ignored in last month’s look back at the championships in Qatar.

Finally, Jessie Walker tells the podcast about her disappointing experience with an Italian team. Just 22, Walker has put her career on hold – she tells us why, and whether she might come back.
