Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 10

Well that’s the Giro Rosa done and dusted for another year. Highlights include Lizzy’s win and Tayler squirting water in Ruth’s face. Low lights: every photographer line at the finishes and being stung by a bee 🐝 ! (My arm is almost back to normal now) Looking forward to a few days at home without […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 9

I’m really happy that Anna got the stage win today. Not that I have anything against Annemiek, just it’s nice to see a bit of competition in the mountain stages. Annemiek may have won this Giro with her huge training schedules and meticulous preparations for the event, but as a fan it’s great to see […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 8

At the start of the day Lizzy told me she was really tired, turns out there was a little fuel left in the tank to pull off an impressive solo win. I couldn’t be happier for her. Before this season, I didn’t really know Lizzy beyond seeing the name on start lists. She’s been a […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 7

The photographers’ finish line locations have been nothing short of chaotic this week: Everyone with an iphone has access, the line is often too close to the finish, cars driving right in front of the lead riders, organisers/police shoving everyone to the floor as the race is about to finish, incessant shouting, the list goes […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 6

There are loads of fad diets: Juicing diet, Baby food diet, Atkins etc. I think I’ve found the next big one: The Giro Rosa diet! You eat as much as you can for breakfast, sweat your ass off on a motorbike for a few hours, then eat pizza for dinner and repeat! I forgot to […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 5

So I think we all knew how that was going to end before the day began but seeing it, is still pretty impressive! Annemiek flew up the final climb, with 5km I waited for the chase group on the road to pass and wasn’t 100% convinced we’d reach Annemiek again before the finish! But we […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 4

It’s a toss up between if there were more roundabouts or cars on the course today, and there were way too many roundabouts to count! A particular highlight was getting caught on the wrong side of a barrier on a dual carriageway and hurtling toward oncoming traffic, along with half the peloton. A day to […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 3

Halfway through the stage I got stung by a wasp on the forearm. It really hurt, but I’m sure not as much as Lucy Kennedy must be feeling after that finish. I’ve seen a few premature celebrations over the years but this was the worst. Looking through the lens, clicking away after each black out […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 2

I may have seemed a bit negative in yesterday’s post: I was tired, it was late and the B&B was terrible. Tonight’s place is lovely, so suddenly the world seems like a much nicer place! 🙂 The start of stage two was funny: a gentle roll out of town through the neutral zone. Then about […]

Giro Rosa 2019 – Stage 1

Spent an age getting accreditation Sweated half my body weight standing in fields Battled with crappy mobile upload speeds Ate ‘dinner’ in a motorway service station Arrived at hotel gone 21:30 It’s official, the Giro Rosa has begun! 🙂 That was a crazy hard TTT! How can you keep a team together on that type […]
