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!

How can you keep a team together on that type […]

OVO Energy Women’s Tour 2019 – Stage 6

Over the years I’ve been pretty lucky with cars, this week that luck ran out… Driving down to the start last Sunday my car broke down in Chesterfield. With no hire cars places open until Monday morning, I got two trains down to my parents and borrowed my Mum’s car for the week. Mid-week I […]

OVO Energy Women’s Tour 2019 – Stage 5

We’ve reached the penultimate stage already. It’s been a long road to Wales, quite literally, I’ve already driven almost 1000 miles since Sunday! The setting for today was worth the distance travelled: Even if you’re never more than 50 centimetres from sheep shit, Wales is beautiful, especially when it’s not raining. I’d picked out the […]
