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 […]

Vårgårda Road Race 2019

If you looked at the forecast a few days ago you wouldn’t have believed it, some how it stayed dry for the whole race! Another win for Marta Bastianelli, her eighth of the year and yet her team, Virtu still can’t find a sponsor! That’s the Swedish leg of the mini-Scandinavian tour done. Tomorrow it’s […]

Vårgårda TTT 2019

The week of Scandinavian races has begun! This is my favourite week of the season. The races are well organised, there’s a nice relaxed atmosphere, nice scenery, good food. If you’re thinking of coming to some races this is a great block of racing to visit. Plus there’s a few days in-between Sweden and Norway, […]

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 […]
