Worlds Elite Women’s Time Trial 2017

Not going to lie, I could feel my eyes getting a little wet watching Annemiek’s celebrations today. I really wanted to be there for the winning moment, whoever was going to win, which meant not straying too far from the start/finish area during the race. It was definitely worth the sacrifice. Hopefully journalists can stop […]

Worlds Team Time Trial 2017

Nine teams on the start line makes for a frantic 25 minutes of shooting and then it’s all over before you know it. Then i almost missed Sunweb! I was just about to try and dash to another spot, expecting FDJ to be the next team to come into view. The next thing I know […]

Madrid Challenge 2017

That’s the Women’s WorldTour done for another year. I was determined to find new spots to last year which proved tricky given the course. You can see the race almost limitless times, but interesting spots are harder to come by. Yesterday, I found a great window in a shop on Gran Via but when I […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 6

Today marks the end of our last stage race of the season. It’s all one day races from here on out. If teams weren’t worried about the Dutch team at Worlds already, they definitely will be now. Only Lisa Brennauer managed to break the run of Dutch stage winners this week. Next stop Madrid for […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 5

Hello hills! You don’t realise you miss varied terrain until you don’t have it. The Limburg hills were a welcome change of scenery from the week so far and there were huge crowds out to see the race off in Stamproy. Following the final few kilometres on Twitter with Annemiek and Anna battling it out […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 4

As we reach the end of the season I think everyone’s a little weary or has an eye on Worlds. Much of the pre-race chat is around the race of how many races people have left this year (I have 12 race days, if you we’re wondering). It was great to see Lisa Brennauer getting […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 3

Day three at the Boels Rental Ladies Tour and time for another time trial. Thankfully the weather improved greatly on the drive to Roosendaal. TTs can be tough to shoot as you rarely get more than one chance to catch the key riders but today I found a spot where I had riders coming at […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 2

I woke this morning to pouring rain drumming against the Velux window in the B&B. Opening my eyes it still looked dark outside. ‘Plenty of time for it to pass over before it gets light’ I thought and rolled over to go back to sleep. 30 seconds later my alarm started blaring! The rain poured […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Prologue

Racing in your home town must be a pretty special feeling. If that hometown race is a prologue and your name is Annemiek van Vleuten it must feel like all your Christmases have come at once! I really underestimated the weather today. When not at races I’ve spent most of the Summer in Spain, so […]

GP de Plouay 2017

I’m not one for getting stressed out when shooting races. Mostly because I meticulously plan what I want to do well in advance, but if part of the plan doesn’t come off then there’s no point getting stressed about it. It won’t change the situation, just move on to plan B, or C. Yet this […]

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 […]
