2017 Ladies Tour of Norway Stage 3

It was 10am, the longest distance of the season was ahead of us and I was standing under a team gazebo, because it was raining so hard, that I would have been soaked to skin in a minute otherwise. The signs weren’t good at the start, but almost the moment the race started, the sun […]

2017 Ladies Tour of Norway Stage 2

It was a long and hard day. I decided to drive the course in the morning – which meant that by 9am, I had already driven the whole stage and was already having breakfast. We ended up being quite lucky as it wasn’t raining – as it was raining all the way through my morning […]

2017 Ladies Tour of Norway Stage 1

I think it was at the Healthy Ageing Tour in April, where the organisers used a helicopter almost every day to make the coverage of the race a lot more professional. It was a surprise, but what I didn’t expect that helicopters have been popping up left, right and centre throughout the season, which is, […]

2017 Ladies Tour of Norway Prologue

Last year was my first year of shooting the Ladies Tour of Norway, but it was one of my favourite stage races. Ok, now that I think about it, I really enjoyed all the stage races: the Emakummen Bira, the Women’s Tour and the Thuringen Tour were all great races and each had its own […]

Vårgårda Team Road Race 2017

The Vårgårda has been one of my favourite races since first covering it in 2015, the main reason being the beautiful countryside, the quiet, calming scenery with lush forests and the occasional rock formations. Plus the red houses. I love the red houses. This year I was lucky enough to be shooting the race from a […]

Vårgårda Team Time Trial 2017

If I could change just one thing about cycling it would be the time of day we have races. Races are usually held in the middle of the day, when the sun is high in the sky, it makes for really bad light for photos. But then races like Vårgårda come along with their 17:30 […]

2017 Prudential RideLondon Classique

Of all the various editions of these races I have photographed, this was the first rainy one – and it was a tough one. It was only drizzling when I arrived at Charing Cross (the shortest trip to a race of the season, of any seasons) but as soon as I left the media centre, […]

2017 La Course – The Pursuit

When I look at other photographer’s photos of men’s race, the biggest difference is normally the size of the crowd – at women’s races, there are only a handful races that deliver large crowds. Therefore, it was an absolute treat to shoot today’s La Course race on the packed streets of Marseille, with the lovely […]

La Course 2017

Races in the mountains are rare in women’s cycling. Today at La Course is our only real mountain top finish of the entire season. It makes days like these extra special! At 67km it was a very short stage so cramming in those all important photo opportunities, especially when much of the first hour of […]

2017 Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour – Stage 6

All good things come to an end – and the Thuringen Rundfahrt is no exception. I didn’t know what to expect, other than Sean said that I would like this race. And he was right. I really like this race. Well organised, fair amount of spectators, good courses and a stunning countryside. The people were […]

2017 Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour – Stage 5

Cycling is a cruel mistress. On the one hand, Ruth Winder’s and Lauren Stephens’ crash’s timing was as badly timed as it comes, eventual winner, Tayler Wiles had her fair share of misfortunes at this race. It happened only a few years ago, when she was misdirected and lost the race, with the finish practically […]
