Pez Cycling News had a recent interview with a podium girl! Now all is revealed (okay... not quite all). Lien Crapoen, our Pez podium girl, fills in the blanks on how to land the job and what a "day at the office" is like (spoiler - essentially, becoming a podium girl seems to require being good looking, female, and a little nepotism). That would count me out on all three criteria.
