The Cycling Podcast Feminin team are reunited once again following Lizzy Banks’ long anticipated return to racing. Lizzy shares her experience of helping her team to victory at the Joe Martin stage race earlier this month, after overcoming two and a half years of illness and injury.
There’s plenty to discuss in the World Tour, where the SD Worx winning streak has continued. Emphatic wins in Itzulia and at the Vuelta a Burgos for Marlen Reusser and Demi Vollering respectively have left the other teams desperately wondering how to beat them. And like the rest of the peloton, the Cycling Podcast Feminin team can’t agree on the best way to go about it either.
We also hear from Pfeiffer Georgi who can claim to be one of the few riders in the peloton to have overcome SD Worx at World Tour level this year. The De Panne champion speaks to the podcast fresh from her team’s success at the RideLondon Classique where they took two stage wins and the overall title. Pfeiffer speaks about her progress since her junior racing years and balancing her quiet, calm attitude with being an assertive road captain for Team DSM.
