It's never too late for something new

Helping the next generation
This week Loren chatted with Jolien D'Hoore about her career, what has changed since, and why she decided to become a director.
This week we continue our interview series with Canadian Alison Jackson. A 2020 Olympian, Jackson is known as an entertainer, on the bike and also on social media. You may have heard her takes during the Tour Daily podcasts this summer.
"It’s annoying, but I’ll be back."
This week Matt de Neef chatted with one of Australia's rising stars Sarah Gigante. They discussed Sarah's first year in the WorldTour with Movistar and much more.

What an interview. It is rare an athlete opens up the way Gracie Elvin did in this interview. I have watched her ride for years and enjoyed that. Elvin’s involvement in the Cyclists Alliance added another impressive dimension to Elvin’s story. Now, having listened to her tell her story, my admiration grows. Freewheeling has given us the opportunity to see the full dimensions of a very successful and inspirational athlete. Thank you and good on you Gracie.
Overall I really enjoy….but….
Usually love this show. Consume sport, but particularly female sport, & love my cycling.
But….does my head in to seemingly diss annemiek van vleuten. For an amazing athlete, why not celebrate it.
You just seem to undermine women’s cycling by putting someone down, instead of acknowledging their work.
Seriously, for such experienced cyclists & commentators, you sound like whinging kids sometimes.
Credit where credits due ladies 👍🏻
After commenting on the middle Giro episode well done on owning what came across as some nasty jibes towards an individual in your 3rd & final Giro episode.
Being critical of team or individual tactics is fine & part of what you do there is no need to apologise for that it’s just the personal attacks which is uncool.
Keep up the good work in bringing an insight into womens cycling.
