Kool and the Gang

Season 11, Episode 12,   Feb 24, 2023, 09:51 AM

Comebacks, controversy and new rivalries, there’s plenty for Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks to discuss in this month’s episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin.

We hear from Charlotte Kool who caused a major upset in taking two stage wins over former teammate and sprinting superstar Lorena Wiebes at the UAE Tour. She tells us what it is like taking on the mantle of leadership in one of the world’s best sprinting teams and going head-to-head against a rider you used to lead out.

Newly crowned U23 cyclo-cross world champion Shirin van Anrooij talks to Orla about life at Trek-Segafredo and about enjoying some time off the bike before the Ardennes Classics.

Plus we discuss all the main headlines to come out of Setmana Valenciana and the UAE Tour, including the rejuvenation of Ashleigh Moolman and the polemic surrounding Elisa Longo-Borghini’s win on Jebel Hafeet.
