Did Emma Pooley just win a big race? I was expecting to see news of it on this site?

Did she? What race?
The only thing thats been about her lately is if she's going to seek out a new team or retire and finish her degree
If you are talking about the Tour de l'Ardeche in France? Its only a 6 stage small race that ended on the 8th September with her winning the 3rd and final 6th stages.
Also, she was the only "big" name female cyclist there. It was a tour in the park really http://www.tcfia.com/
Not a big race, but with her talking of retirement, the race result has been trumped in the news by that

Would have still been worth at least a mention surely? Looking at the website it seems a little more than a tour in the park. Website not easy to navigate though.

Interesting to note that she was there as part of a mixed team consisting of riders whose own teams didn't want to attend.
This was an interesting read http://marijndevries.nl/?p=5276

The media (online and print) do not consider her and her sport not newsworthy, only her possible retirement from it.

What? Women? Racing bikes? Seriously? (Not on Road cc obviously)
