episode 185: Women’s Tour 2021: Stage 5 – Colchester to Clacton-on-Sea

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside… For the second day in a row the Women’s Tour finished beside the sea, this time in Clacton and for the second day in a row Lorena Wiebes won the stage.
Join Rose Manley, Lionel Birnie and Lizzy Banks on the sea front as they recap the stage. We hear from Mark Cavendish, who stopped to watch the race yesterday and was at the finish today.
Lizzy heads out on her bike to give the lowdown on the course, we hear post-race reaction from Wiebes and her Team DSM teammate Pfeiffer Georgi. Plus there’s Hayley Simmonds, who earned the biggest lead over the peloton so far this week, from Chloe Hosking about Trek-Segafredo’s search for a stage win and focus on a couple of the riders who have had difficult days in the race.
There’s a discussion about what constitutes a podium finish and – Clacton Klaxon – some fascinating facts about Clacton.
