The first ever women’s lifestyle television show is due to be aired on Eurosport this evening.
Voxwomen’s half hour programme will be on British Eurosport 2 at 9.15pm and will be the first ever cycling show dedicated to women’s riding.
The focus will be on providing a real insight into the world’s most talented female riders – and will feature behind the scenes racing footage and in-depth commentary on the riders’ experiences.
Voxwomen’s YouTube channel has proved popular since its first episodes this year – having accumulated almost 90,000 views and around 1,500 subscribers.
They’ve provided rider blogs, race footage and even recipe ideas, as well as covering the Tour of Flanders, Fleche Wallone, Strade Bianche and Aviva Women’s Tour.
The Voxwomen team has grown from two women to four – Bryony, Kim, Laura and Lois. They’ve all expressed huge excitement about seeing their show on Eurosport, and have added (in unison): “This is just the start of things to come as we’re currently in the process of filming and editing our second show which will also be on your screens very soon.”
The founder, Anthony McCrossan, is also the UCI Women’s Commentator. He said: “Professional women’s cycling is an exciting spectator sport and for a long time now, the women’s peloton has deserved more media support. We’re delighted that Voxwomen and British Eurosport can finally provide them with a platform to help to further promote the sport.”
The episode was funded by a Kickstarter campaign, which generated huge support from fans. McCrossan said: “On behalf of the Voxwomen team I’d like to thank British Eurosport for their commitment to this show. In particular a huge thank you to all of those people that believe in women’s cycling, who have put their own money forwards to help fund our programme. I would also like to thank the teams, riders and events who are at the hub of this programme. We hope you all enjoy this first show and we’re sure that this will be just the start of further coverage of the women’s professional peloton.”
David Kerr, Managing Director of British Eurosport said: “British Eurosport is well established as the Home of Cycling and we are always looking to acquire more good quality content for our viewers. It’s great to see a show that focuses on women’s cycling and we are very happy to add it to our schedules.”
We hope you’ll all be tuning in to show support for the growing women’s cycling media!
