Episode three of The Cycling Podcast Féminin comes from Paris on the day of La Course, the 12th round of the inauguaral women’s UCI World Tour.

Orla Chennaoui and Richard Moore discuss the latest developments in the women’s road scene and look ahead to the Olympic Games.

There’s a long interview with British track sprinter Becky James as she looks ahead to Rio, as well as Marianne Vos and UCI president Brian Cookson talking about the impact of the first season of World Tour racing.

Richard is also joined by Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe to discuss the controversy surrounding the world champion Lizzie Armitstead on the eve of the Olympics. Armitstead missed three out-of-competition dope tests and was suspended until the Court of Arbitration for Sport over-turned the first of those missed tests, clearing her to race at the Games.
