Tour of Guangxi 2019

That’s it. The season is officially over! After 90 odd race days, 200+ days of travelling and probably close to 100,000 shutter actuations, it’s time to put the cameras down. Will it go down as a ‘Classic Season’? Probably not… Of course there were some great races along the way, but the racing more often […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2019 – Stage 3

In yesterday’s blog I mentioned seeing a kestrel during the race. When I turned up this morning for stage three at the Boels Ladies Tour I was greeted by three dancing chickens! Which brightened up a slow start to the day. With teams spread all over town it seemed like the plan was to turn […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2019 – Stage 2

Struggling for something to write about today… it certainly won’t go down in the history books as an incredible day of racing. Writing the captions for the photos was tough today: ‘Here’s another photo of nothing much happening…’ doesn’t quite cut it as a photo caption. Highlight of the day was watching a kestrel hunting […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2019 – Stage 1

After yesterday’s prologue it was time for the wheel-to-wheel racing to get underway. Seemed people read that as wheel-into-wheel as a series of crashes were the main events of the day. On arriving on the finishing circuit for a second I wondered if there was some secret mountain-pass that had been built since last year […]

GP de Plouay 2019

There’s one thing everyone talks about when they arrive for GP de Plouay. No, not the Ty Marec climb or how safe the circuit is (the course is shut down to any traffic for the entire race!) it that it’s so bloody far from everywhere. Even locals like Aude Biannic and Audrey Cordon-Ragot couldn’t argue […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2019 – Stage 4

That’s the Ladies Tour of Norway done for another year. Do you know the last time there was a non-Dutch winner of a stage? Megan Guarnier won the final stage way back in 2017! Shooting races where the course is very familiar from previous years is a bit of a double-edged sword: I know the […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2019 – Stage 2

What a difference a day makes! After the torrential conditions of the previous day, stage two at the Ladies Tour of Norway felt like a completely different country as the race basked in the late afternoon sun. Thanks to some ‘MacGyver-style’ use of the hotel room hairdryer, bin and towels I was able to dry […]
