An Olympian upset

Jul 30, 11:32 AM
In the July episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin Rose Manley and Richard Moore discuss the Olympic Games and the huge upset in the road race, won by Austria's Anna Kiesenhofer ahead of the favourite, Annemiek van Vleuten.

Orla Chennaoui, who is in Tokyo for the Olympics, gives us a blow-by-blow account of a race that we'll be discussing for years.

We also hear from Ashleigh Moolman Pasio about her stage win and second place finish at the Giro d'Italia Donne. And we speak to two young cyclists who switched sports during – and as a direct result of – the coronavirus pandemic and who have now been selected to be part of the Skoda Cycling Academy.
