Boels Ladies Tour 2018 – Stage 2

Day two at the Boels Ladies Tour and seven laps of that climb really took it’s toll on the peloton. When Annemiek went away solo the stage looked like a foregone conclusion but Annemiek kept it interesting by adding a bit of extra distance to the course in the closing kilometres after taking a wrong […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2018 – Prologue

I have little mental leaderboards in my head that rank races on certain criteria. Points related to things that make my time at races easier or more fun. e.g. best accreditation process, best route info, speed of turning around podium presentations etc. The leaderboard for ‘Best Press Rooms’ has a stand out winner, in another […]

GP de Plouay 2018

Not every race can be a classic. There have been some incredibly exciting days of racing to watch this year on the UCI Women’s WorldTour, sadly this year’s GP de Plouay wasn’t one of them. But it was nice to see Amy Pieters get the win. She’s often put to service for others so it’s […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2018 – Stage 3

That’s a wrap on a fun few weeks in Scandinavia. I don’t think their can be much doubt now that Vos is definitely back! Four wins from the last four road races doesn’t happen by chance. Now time to go home and get ready for Plouay next weekend closely followed by the Boels Ladies Tour. […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2018 – Stage 2

It was windy today, often really windy. And then it rained, and rained some more. But not everyday can be blue skies and unicorns and even in less than perfect conditions Norway is still super-pretty! It’s the final day in Norway on Sunday already. The time seems to have flown by. I guess that’s the […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2018 Stage 1

After Thursday night’s team time trial it was time for the proper racing to get underway on Friday at the Ladies Tour of Norway. There was so much wind sweeping across the beautiful Norwegian countryside. Upon arriving at the finish town of Mysen it was great to watch the final kilometres on the big screen […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2018 TTT

We’ve only had a couple of team time trials all year then we get two in less than a week! I’m glad that they decided to split the TTT from the stage race at the Ladies Tour of Norway as I really don’t like team time trials in short stage races. They ruin the GC […]

Vårgårda Road Race 2018

A 141 kilometres of racing that starts at 17:10 meant a late night editing photos was guaranteed. But with the the long summer nights in Sweden, if the weather was kind it would all be worth it! It doesn’t get much better than Scandinavian Summer evening when it comes to taking photos. Add in beautiful […]

Vårgårda Team Time Trial 2018

During the course of the season I’ll spend upwards of 180 days away from home. I’m not sure you can still call a place home if you’re away so much but anyway… I get to see some truly beautiful places, but they aren’t the places that I enjoy visiting the most. Races take you back […]

La Course 2018

I’m not going to lie, when I arrived in Annecy for La Course I wasn’t feeling it. After 10 days at the Giro and a terrible transfer to France I was running on fumes. Thankfully the riders didn’t feel the same, or if they did they didn’t show it! Putting on one of the most […]

Giro Rosa 2018

I’m finally back home from after following the Giro Rosa and La Course there’s a chance to take a breath and look back at the last two weeks of racing. I have a love/hate relationship with the Giro Rosa. I love the stages, they’re often unlike anything else we have all season. I love that […]

OVO Energy Women’s Tour 2018

It’s time to take a look back at the last five days of racing at the OVO Energy Women’s Tour. Days at stage races are long, often with a lot of time spent in the car traveling to the next day of racing. So rather than publishing daily galleries of photos from each stage here […]
