    Farewell the mighty Emma Pooley

    Big scoop for Sarah Connolly to get Emma Pooley’s retirement story for Rouleur.

    I interviewed Emma a few times back in 2009, when I had time to write about women’s cycling. On one occasion she called me back from a train in Switzerland, apologised for missing my call – she was in the lab doing PhD work after training – then proceeded to give a wonderful interview…

    veloclinic:

how do they strip two races based on 1 abnormal result ? and menchov only loses TDF results?
or was the JTL biopassport 1 abnormal value story a bit of bullshit ?
because that was the timeline right … JTL evalled by Garmin n Sky prior to abnormal result, signed by Sky. Then tested 2-3 more times allowing biopassport to then establish baseline which flags the first result ?
totally befuddled by this transparency

  9. It’s not just the superb terrain and scenery that made this race one of the best ever in the UK in our view, it was the standard of organisation, marshalling and policing – along with a great “race buzz” and a thoroughly professional set up in all areas, including a flawlessly policed rolling road closure. We can only hope that it runs-and-runs in future years alongside the 31 year old men’s Premier Calendar race that took place over the same weekend. It will certainly be one of the first to be inked into our race programme for 2015!
