THIS EPISODE Mike has margaritas and conversation with Marianne Martin, the winner of the first Tour de France for women in 1984, covering the 18-stage 616-mile course in 21 days, 29 hours, 39 minutes, and 2 seconds.
Over the course of their drinking and chatting, M&M cover the intervening years since Marianne had her epic victory, what she’s been doing to keep herself busy in Boulder (hint: it doesn’t involve a bicycle), her love of the sport of cycling, dancing as excellent training preparation for bike racing, and riding as a lifelong pursuit.
We hope you enjoy this intriguing conversation with a legend in women’s cycling. We certainly did.
