Sarah & Omne Ep9 - Cycling Fairy Tales

5

Well this week Sarah rather alarmingly threatens to stop talking about the Giro Donne, but with a little bit of coaxing I manage to salvage the situation. That success goes to my head a little bit and I solicit calls in the name of crazy. We take a moment to contemplate the Richie Porte/Tiffany Cromwell reunion and who has the better bragging rights in the relationship. Sarah compares Frank Schleck with Emma Pooley. I manage to Farq up CJs name and I explain my philosophy of race design before taking Sarah to task for overstating things. Sarah manages to calm down and hints at why Evie Stevens is practically guaranteed to win the Olympic road race. She then rather cleverly manipulates me into promising to watch some track racing during the Olympics. We take a brief diversion into the current state of Mining Wars which sounds like a reality tv show. It's not, but it probably should be. We're brought back to reality with Chloe Hosking's night terrors which leads into my crazy idea of the week which has the added benefit of rather neatly fixing cycling for everyone. We wrap the show up with a brief discussion of some of the classic Grimm cycling fairy tales.

Sarah & Omne Ep8 - The Giro Donne Epic Spectacular

3

Wow, well the Giro Donne is ongoing and it's already been a hell of a week of racing. As Sarah catches us up on the race so far, I run through a brief list of the injuries that Marianne Vos started the race with and very carefully avoid defining a "selfie". I do take some time to introduce Sarah to the important health concept of medicinal beer and then caution against drinking and riding. Sarah forces me to admit that some of my best friends are, in fact, Australians. Sarah introduces me to the notion of 'stealth hills' and melting roads before forgetting her own twitter name. It's a good one, so let's get on with it! (54:25min / 49.82MB) (as ever, it's a bit sweary so NSFW and all that) Here are some of the links from various things we reference as we go: The Giro Donne race twitter, which is live tweeting from the race and their website. Amber Pierce's twitter and she's doing her video chats on the Fuji Bike's facebook app. Sarah's twitter list of riders and teams in the Giro, and sources of information about them. And of course the Podium Café Giro Donne articles and the women's cycling section. Clara Hughes' blog on pain and suffering on the Specialized-lululemon website.
