I ❤️ the 1980s

In the first Cycling Podcast Féminin of 2018 we hear from two pioneers of the 1980s, Robin Morton and Mandy Jones.

Orla Chennaoui speaks to Morton, who managed a men’s team at the 1984 Giro d’Italia, only securing her seat in the team car after the other directeurs sportifs took a vote on whether a woman should be permitted in the race convoy.

And Richard Moore speaks to Jones, the 1982 world road race champion. Now Mandy Bishop, she was only 20 when she claimed the rainbow jersey in real style, winning alone ahead of riders such as Maria Canins and Jeannie Longo at Goodwood situated near Chichester, West Sussex.

The Cycling Podcast Féminin is supported by Rapha and Science in Sport.
