Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 4

The wind came out to play for the penultimate day at the Healthy Ageing Tour. Within a few kilometres gaps in the peloton began to show and the race soon became four or five smaller races within a race. I still haven’t got used to this taking photos in the sun malarkey. Suddenly everything seems […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stages 3 a & b

A double day at the Healthy Ageing Tour and the sun came out to play. It seems Spring has finally sprung! As expected, the afternoon TTT has all but ended the GC competition, with Boels Dolmans now comfortably occupying the top four spots in the General Classification. But a special mention goes to Virtu, securing […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 2

I’ve covered plenty of stages of the Healthy Ageing/Energiewacht Tour where it’s been a calm, sunny day. On days like that, it’s hard for people to animate the race given the terrain. Today, was not one of those days… Strong winds and rain at sign on made for a very cold start to the day. […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 1

Whilst making the drive to Heerenveen for the opening stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour it dawned on me that I hadn’t shot a time trial since the World Championships last September. Hoping tin the back of my mind I could still remember how I headed onto the course to find the best sector of […]

Ronde van Vlaanderen 2018

As we sped to the Muur van Geraardsbergen in the pouring rain, I had a lightbulb moment. A thought so clear and simple I couldn’t believe nobody else had thought of it. And could change the lives of countless people around the world as well as grow women’s cycling: Areas suffering from drought should consider […]

Dwars door Vlaanderen 2018

How often do the weather conditions have to be crap before you stop mentioning them in race blogs? Let’s just say if the conditions carry on much longer in Belgium I’m going to start building an ark! Today didn’t quite go to plan, I’d driven the final 100km on Monday, checking out spots for photos […]

Gent Wevelgem – Elite Women 2018

The new women’s course for Gent-Wevelgem is awesome! Last year I didn’t even bother leaving the Kemmelberg between the ascents in the middle of the race, as there wasn’t much to see before they’d be back again. But this year I wanted to be everywhere! In the races so far this year I’ve been ‘stressing’ […]

Driedaagse Brugge – De Panne 2018

I know it’s almost sacrilegious to say, but races in Flanders aren’t my favourite races to shoot. Maybe because all the big ones are concentrated in such a short period, it’s the same 10 to 15 climbs/cobbles sections just in a different order. But Driedaagse Brugge – De Panne is a fresh race on the […]

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 […]
