We are delighted to announce The Voxwomen Insider powered by Canyon will be continuing this year. Canyon Bicycles have once again backed the podcast, demonstrating their ongoing commitment to growing the sport of women’s cycling.
Canyon//SRAM Racing and Movistar Pro Cycling are both supported by Canyon, and the bike brand have this year launched a new women’s specific geometry, which has proven to be their most aerodynamic and therefore fastest bike ever.
We’re incredibly grateful to be in partnership with Canyon for another season, working on giving women’s racing more coverage and shining a light on the vibrant characters in the peloton.
Nick Allen, Canyon UK market manager, said: “Canyon are proud to continue sponsorship of the Voxwomen Insider Podcast for 2018. We are fully committed to investing in women’s professional road cycling whether it be engineering and building bikes designed 100% for women or supporting two top level female road racing teams – Canyon//SRAM & Movistar Pro Cycling. We’re delighted to continue to bring women’s cycling fans closer to the action and increase our involvement in the sport we love.”
The podcast will once again be hosted by professional rider Abby Mickey, who will race for Rally Cycling this year. Her hard work, natural presenting style and invaluable insight saw the 2017 Voxwomen Insider powered by Canyon attract tens of thousands of listeners/downloads.
Listeners were also treated to the voices of the late Sharon Laws, Voxwomen presenter Laura Winter, and retired pro Loren Rowney, who chatted about upcoming races, dissected the UCI Women’s World Tour results and analysed the challenges and developments in women’s cycling. Guests included numerous stars from the women’s peloton including Ashleigh Moolman Pasio, Lizzie Deignan, Coryn Rivera and Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig. We also spoke to team directors such as Rachel Heal and Nicola Cranmer, as well we Guy Elliott who works for the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour.
Abby Mickey said: “I’m really excited to continue working with Voxwomen and Canyon Bicycles to bring interviews with the women of the peloton to the ears of cycling fans everywhere. Going into our second year, I hope we can continue to grow this podcast to cover even more elements of women’s cycling and reach more people. Thank you to the listeners who made a second season possible! “
Anthony McCrossan, Voxwomen founder, said: “Abby has been the driver of the Voxwomen Insider powered by Canyon. Her energy and passion for cycling have really developed the offering for our listeners and I am excited to see what she does in 2018! Canyon immediately identified with the podcast concept in 2017 and I am really pleased that they are with us again in 2018. They are a fantastic partner with lots of ideas and are helping Voxwomen develop women’s cycling media in a new way.”
The Voxwomen Insider, powered by Canyon will once again aim to give you, the listener, an in-depth look and insight into the women’s professional peloton. It’s a show for riders and fans alike, that will continue to keep you entertained with its light-hearted nature, insight, and easy banter.
Once again we will have guest cameos from riders each week, as well as the movers and shakers behind the scenes in women’s cycling.
