Trofeo Binda 2018

It seems the UCI Women’s World Tour needs to add another ‘W’ to it’s acronym UCIWWT for WET! The third weekend of WorldTour races and it was another damp one back in Italy. It’s not often you hope for better weather in Belgium but here’s hoping for De Panne on Thursday!   If you’ve enjoyed […]

Ronde van Drenthe 2018

Two days into the UCI Women’s WorldTour and we’ve had two ‘mud face’ races. The rain wasn’t as bad as had been forecast the day before, but it doesn’t take much for the muddy cobble sections to throw up the dirt. Apologies in advance, but I’m going to have a little whinge in today’s blog […]

Drentse 8 2018

I think this is my fifth time covering the Drenthe races and over the years I’ve grown quite fond of Dwingeloo, the village that hosts Drentse 8. It’s a cute little place centred around a village green with a thatched bandstand, surrounded by a disproportionate number of nice cafés and restaurants given the population. There’s […]

Strade Bianche 2018

There’s no other word for yesterday’s Strade Bianche than brutal. Even in good conditions it is one of the most demanding courses on the calendar. Throw in the weather conditions and it’s hard to verbalise how tough it was. Looking at the forecast there was no getting away from it, I was getting wet whatever […]

Le Samyn des Dames 2018

After thinking the weekend was cold, today reset the benchmark on what a cold race is really like! At the start it was -5°C (23°F for American’s) add in the wind and it felt much colder. One of camera’s didn’t like it either. It started ‘glitching’, I had to take it inside for a while […]

Omloop van het Hageland 2018

You know when you eat ice cream too quickly and get ‘brain freeze’. That throbbing pain that bores into your brain behind your eyes and there’s nothing you can do but ride it out. That’s what Omloop van het Hageland was like, without the pleasure of tasting chocolate chip and vanilla. I’ve never known it […]

Omloop het Nieuwsblad 2018

The first day of the Spring Classics season for the women’s peloton. Months of preparation leading up to this point, and the same goes for us photographers. Preparing for the new season takes a lot of time. All that preparation seemed in vein five minutes before the start. My moto had broken down. It wouldn’t […]

The Road Book 2017

What are people saying about The Road Book 2017?

The Road Book 2017 has been arriving on people’s doorsteps around the world since the end of November. It’s been great fun seeing people open their parcels and share what people think about ‘our baby’. After countless hours spent working on getting the finished book to print you start to look at it differently. As […]
