    Sustainability - The Cyclist's way, Ep.5: Learning from Isabella Bertold

    On this episode, Maghalie chats with Isabella Bertold. Isabella is a pro cyclist, ex professional sailor, and she is the founder of Platform Pro Cycling team p/b Insta Fund. We chat about how she built a cycling team around sustainability and having a positive impact, and she shares the concrete things she did to have a more positive impact. Since Isabella used to be a sailor, we also discuss the "Impact League" of Sail GP. She explains what it is, how this could hold a key into making professional sports more sustainable, and what we can learn from it. 
    It was really special for me to chat with Isabella, because she has been working already a few years into what I’m trying to change and implement in my own environmental journey. So I’ve learned a lot from her and I hope you will to!

    Sustainability the cyclist's way - Ep.3: What is the UCI doing?

    The bicycle has the power to be an important tool in our global fight against climate change. Yet, racing our bikes across the world clearly has a negative impact on the environment. For years, Maghalie has felt a guilt towards this paradox. In this series, she decides to investigate what she can do as an athlete, and what we can do as an industry, to diminish our impact on the environment. — This podcast series is supported by The Unscented Company. 
    -----------------
    On this episode, Maghalie chats with Isabella Burczak, who is the "Cycling for All & Sustainability Manager” at the UCI. 
    The UCI, which is the International governing body in cycling, has the potential to be a key player in making cycling a more sustainable sport, because they are the ones making the rules on events, teams, calendar, technological advancements, and more. In fact, it is their goal to make cycling the more sustainable sport in the World. In this conversation, Maghalie asks about what are the key things the UCI is working on to make this goal happen and what are the biggest challenges they are facing. 
    We also hear from Canadian pro aerial skier Marion Thenault on how she worked with the Canadian round of the ski World Cup to make it a sustainable and carbon neutral event!
