167: Amplifying Voices with Abby Mickey (Episode 160)

In this Episode

After a career as a professional racer in the women’s road peloton, Abby Mickey was ready to walk away form the sport entirely; she was burnt out and frustrated by the treatment that she and her colleagues received as professional athletes trying to make a living racing bikes. But, Abby also knew that the women that she had raced alongside had incredible stories that weren’t being told. So she and a fellow racer decided to change that by starting a podcast that focusses on covering the women’s pro peloton. This week on the show, Abby gives us her insider insight on the state of women’s professional road racing, and why she is excited about gravel.
