Cherie Pridham made history in 2021 by becoming the first female sport director of a men's WorldTour team.
Joe and James caught up with Cherie to discuss her first season with Israel Start-Up Nation, directing her first WorldTour victory, visiting Rwanda and more.
We also talk about her record-long stint at British Conti level as team manager of Raleigh and then Vitus Pro Cycling and how the British domestic scene can begin to flourish again. Cherie also talks us through her days as bike racer and why the Midlands is the best part of the UK.
Cherie is a regular columnist for Cyclist Magazine, offering readers insight into the WorldTour from her Israel Start-Up Nation team car. Issue 118 sees Cherie talk about the mechanics of the transfer window and can be bought here - https://shop.cyclist.co.uk/collections/coffee/products/issue-118
