The August episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin covers all the recent racing, from London to the Basque Country. Orla Chennaoui, Rose Manley and Richard Moore also look back at the Giro Rosa and La Course by the Tour de France. 
There are interviews with Ashleigh Moolman Pasio, Lizzy Banks and Lucinda Brand, as well as Mitchelton-Scott owner Gerry Ryan and Reuters journalist Julien Pretot, who revealed during the Tour de France that Tour organisers ASO plan to establish a stage race for women.
There's an extract from the the audio diaries kept at the Giro Rosa by Banks and Tayler Wiles. And we hear from Helen Sharp of The Internationelles, the group of women who rode the route of the Tour de France a day ahead of the men.

This episode is sponsored by Heist and Beer52. 
Heist is on a mission to take away the frustration every woman has with their underwear. They’ve already revolutionized tights and shapewear. And there is more coming in 2020. 
Heist has an in-house team of material scientists and garment innovators, known as Lab12, creating its products.This team, Lab12, applies the same level of physiological research and technological innovation to underwear that has previously only been used in the sportswear category.
Lab12, led by Fiona Fairhurst, the inventor of the revolutionary, multi-gold-medal-winning Fastskin swimsuit, has applied technology never before used in underwear to create shapewear that moves with the body, rather than against it.
