episode 67: Steelsy determination

With the SD Worx victory machine still rumbling on at the Tour de Suisse, Rose Manley, Orla Chennaoui and Lizzy Banks are faced with a few conundrums. Is Kasia Niewiadoma back to her best? Can SD Worx be beaten on strategy? And most pressingly of all, exactly who has the cutest dog in the peloton? 

The Cycling Podcast Féminin team pick over some of the week’s impressive solo performances and hear from rising star Claire Steels who Zubeldia’d her way to sixth on GC. Steels was also involved in one of the crashes at the Tour Féminin des Pyrénées which was eventually called off over safety concerns.

We address some of the consternation over the forthcoming Giro Donne and look ahead to the race with Lizzy, our very own two-time stage winner. We also get the perspectives of Urška Žigart of Jayco-Alula, Soraya Paladin of Canyon-SRAM and Erica Magnaldi of UAE-ADQ ahead of the second Grand Tour of the year.

Plus we introduce the podcast to a new voice – Denny Gray – who will be joining Rose for our daily podcasts from the Tour de France Femmes next month.
