episode 180: The Cycling Podcast Féminin | December 2019

In the final Cycling Podcast Féminin of the year the team look back on their standout moments of 2019 with Kasia Niewiadoma, Lizzy Banks, Maria Martins and Bob Varney.

It’s been a difficult few weeks for one of the teams of the year, Parkhotel Valkenburg. Their world number one, Lorena Wiebes, is the subject of offers from bigger teams and another rider, Sofie De Vuyst, announced that she has tested positive for a steroid. We speak to the team’s general manager, Esra Tromp, about a successful season followed by a turbulent few weeks.

Finally, Orla Chennaoui speaks to Kelsey Erickson about her work leading SafeSport at USA Cycling and Rose Manley talks to Christine Majerus about her cyclocross campaign.
