You can play each episode from this page or subscribe on itunes, Spotify, Google, or wherever you get your podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.

The Femmes Stage 8: History is made at the top of La Super Planche des Belles Filles

Abby, Kit and Caley discuss the final stage of the Tour de France Women with Zwift and Amy and Matt report from the field. Additionally, Veronica Ewers (EF Education-Tibco-SVB), Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Trek-Segafredo), and Julie Leth and Anne Dorthe Ysland (Uno-X) check in one last time.

The Femmes Stage 7: Well it was a brutal day

Matt and Amy met some familiar friends at the start of Stage 7 of the Tour de France Women with Zwift. No one is surprised at the results at the end of the day, although the time discrepancies were a bit shocking. With an 18% time reduction, it’s likely that some riders won’t see the start line for Stage Eight. One more step to take!

Veronica Ewers (EF Education-Tibco-SVB), Julie Leth and Anne Dorthe Ysland (Uno-X) and Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Trek-Segafredo) check in after the stage.

The Femmes Stage 6: It sucks to be a breakaway artist

Abby and Alison Jackson talk about stage 6 of the Tour de France Women with Zwift and lament the fall of a perfect breakaway. Matt and Amy were on the ground on the final circuits.

Plus, listen to our riders in the peloton; Audrey Cordon-Ragot who represented Trek-Segafredo in today’s breakaway, Veronica Ewers from EF Education-Tibco-SVB, and the Uno-X duo: Julie Leth and Anne Dorthe Ysland.

The Femmes Stage 5: How to beat the unbeatable?

It was a day for the Tour de France Women sprinters with Zwift. Abby and Loren are joined by Alison Jackson to watch the stage finale as Amy and Matt report from the ground.

Post-race reactions from our peloton runners Veronica Ewers (EF Education-Tibco-SVB), Anne Dorthe Ysland and Julie Leth (Uno-X).

The Femmes Stage 4: Opportunities Squandered and Seized

The gravel in Stage 4 may have been more than the peloton expected, but didn’t force much change in the GC. Another surprise winner took advantage of the chaos.

Listen to Trek-Segafredo’s Audrey Cordon-Ragot before the morning of the stage and Julie Leth (Uno-X) and Veronica Ewers (EF Education-Tibco-SVB) after the race.

Women Step 3: Gorgeous!

Abby and Loren are joined by Alison Jackson from Liv Xstra to watch the Stage 3 Finals. Matt and Amy had some on-court adventures and Veronica Ewers (EF Education-Tibco-SVB) and Julie Leth (Uno-X) register after the stage.

The Women Stage 2: Falls, Crosswinds and the GOAT

Stage 2 got us all on our feet, and not always for good reasons. What was otherwise an amazing stage was marred by a few nasty crashes.

Julie Leth of Uno-X and Veronica Ewers of EF Education-Tibco-SVB check in after the stage.

Step 21/Step 1: This is just the beginning

After the men’s race is done and dusted off, Caley and the team pass the mic to Amy Jones and Matt de Neef on the field during the Women’s Tour de France with Zwift. The women’s race started where the men’s ended; on the mythical Champs Élysées.

Listen to the audio logs of French Trek-Segafredo champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Danish legend Julie Leth of Uno-X and American Veronica Ewers of EF Education-Tibco-SVB.

Crash, chase, wait. It was a crazy day in the Pyrenees.

Step 17: Go, go, gondola

The second of three Pyrenean stages, a series of attacks and a dinner in Tarbes.

Stage 16: In the Pyrenees

Pogačar can’t escape, Vingaard won’t be let go and we have two huge days in the Pyrenees ahead.

Second day of rest: under the bridge

The air is hot, the races are excellent and Jonny, Iain and Caley come to you from under a bridge in Carcassonne.

Stage 15: Jumbo has fallen

A hot and difficult stage in Carcassonne with screams, a Bernie cameo and a worthy winner.

Step 14: Mende at work

A crazy start, a GC tactic that takes us back decades, and winning over desire. Jonny, Caley and Iain discuss the day and call on Peter Cossins for historical perspective.

Stage 13: Slushies in Saint-Étienne

A breakaway, heat and Fred Wright’s near miss.

Stage 12: Whippersnappers in Alpe d’Huez

A mix of old and new characters defined the last big day in the Alps. Pippa York joins Jonny, Iain and Caley (plus a special guest) to talk it all out.

Step 8: Wright said Fred

A doomed breakaway, a father in the team car and another dominant display.

Step 7: The Super Board

In today’s episode, Jonny checks in from a motorbike in the middle of the Tour de France, then the crew sits down to discuss the first summit finish. Is Jumbo as assembled as we thought? Is Ineos the best hope of trying something wild to topple Pogačar?

Step 6: Your Lap Man

It was a day when Wout van Aert and Tadej Pogacar took turns dominating the entire Tour de France peloton. Ronan, Jonny and Caley speak across the stage, as well as Alberto Bettiol, La Planche and your man with the near miss.

Step 5: Jumbo messed up that one

It was a wild day on the cobblestones of northern France. Jonny, Ronan and Caley break down Pogačar’s dominance, Jumbo-Visma’s weird answer to a relatively normal problem, and why Nairo Quintana is so good on the cobbles.

Step 4: Won’t you wait?

Wout van Aert decided the best way to end his streak of second places was to sprint against himself on Tuesday. Jonny and Ronan are joined by Caley, fresh off the plane, to talk about a thrilling final and prepare for Wednesday’s cobbled stage.

Step 3: On the way to France

Another sprint, another winner. The crew sits down after the final Danish stage to talk about a quick but incredibly safe opening of the Tour de France.

Step 2: Two for two
