So sorry to hear that. It’s everywhere alas. I’d say my voice is a slightly deeper register, but then I get told it’s ‘grating’. Should only really matter what you’re saying, but...🤷‍♀️

Remember standing on the finish line in Oviedo when Sam Bennett won his second stage of last year's Vuelta, and he didn't celebrate because he wasn't sure the break had been caught. This year, he's almost Alaphilippe'ing. That's what a Tour green jersey does for you. Brilliant.

Three paragraphs into this piece, and the line that HAUNTS me as a woman working in sports broadcasting, the old ‘irritating voice’ criticism. It baffles me why women are subject to this brand of vitriol in a way men simply aren’t. Maybe it’s simply the fact we have a voice? 🤷‍♀️

Rennal was the lynchpin of the Burton family - an immigrant via the USA from Jamaica in 1948, he became a tailor’s presser and prepared clothes for Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana to wear. He was a survivor of a great generation. I am so sorry

"It makes this Vuelta, at the very end of a very compact season, without much chance for recovery, an endurance event in the fact that fatigue plays a big role. It all comes down to the mental resilience riders have to fight, even when in November, for a few seconds"

Jumbo Visma's Heijboer also says fatigue a huge factor in deciding this Vuelta. "With all the insecurities of this season we wanted to show ourselves (at the Worlds and Classics) whenever we can. That counts for a lot of riders in the peloton now"
