La Flèche Wallonne Femmes 2017

Two from two: it seems Anna van der Breggen is on for the perfect Ardennes week after completing her hatrick of wins at La Flèche Wallonne Femmes. It’s hard to believe the Spring is almost over already and it’s time for stage races to dominate the race calendar. Here’s a few photos from a sunny but freezing cold day […]

Women’s Amstel Gold Race 2017

There we have it, the first Women’s Amstel Gold Race in ages! Super-happy for for Anna van der Breggen getting the win today. It’s nice to see a ‘Dutchie’ winning a big race at home. Although Anna’s victory is only the second best thing I saw today, after pulling up outside our apartment for the week, […]

Ronde van Vlaanderen 2017

The BIG one! And our first time covering a race as a pair this year. Knowing there’s someone else there certainly takes a bit of the pressure off, making sure we have the shots of the riders we need etc. especially in a race as big as Ronde van Vlaanderen. Huge congratulations to Coryn Rivera. […]

Pajot Hills Classic 2017

All eyes might be on Sunday for Ronde van Vlaanderen but that doesn’t mean the racing stops in the build up. Some of the big names are saving themselves for Sunday but there was still a competitive field at the Pajot Hills Classic. (I really don’t think races that are two years old should be […]

Gent Wevelgem 2017

The last two year’s at Gent Wevelgem have been off the charts windy but today, Summer seemed to have come early to Belgium. Aeroplane trails being the only imperfections on a clear blue sky. A bit like a reversed version of Lotta Lepistö’s national champion jersey. Here’s a few photos from the day. Next up […]

Dwars door Vlaanderen 2017

It’s official the true Classics season is here! In the next week we’ve got Gent Wevelgem, Pajot Hills and the big one… Ronde van Vlaanderen. But first a few photos from today at Dwars door Vlaanderen. My moto pilot wasn’t available today so it was a day of trying to rush around from one spot […]

Trofeo Binda 2017

Another different winner! In the Trofeo Binda press room there was a sweepstake picking the podium. Nobody had Coryn Rivera for the win on their list. Most of the (Italian) press we’re staying loyal to their home star, Elisa Longo Borghini. I think this is the third win I’ve seen for Coryn and she’s welcome to win again, she […]

Drentse 8 2017

So that’s the Drenthe weekend done for another year. Five times up the Vamberg and almost 300 kilometres in racing must have caused some tired legs leaving Dwingeloo this evening. Six races into our season now and we’ve had six different winners from five teams. 2017 looks to be shaping up to be a great […]

Ronde van Drenthe 2017

Covering the Spring races means countless hours spent driving alone with the radio blaring through the speakers. Jumping from one station to the next, trying to avoid station jingles sticking in my head. Each year there seems to be one song that follows me around the airwaves and ends up becoming my soundtrack to the Spring. Last […]

Strade Bianche 2017

Strade Bianche is a tough one! Not just to race, but to shoot too. Like a kid in a candy shop who can’t choose which sweets to grab first. Almost everywhere you look there’s one beautiful spot after another. Spoilt for choice throughout the race, you find yourself thinking ’Oh, I wish I’d stopped there, […]

Le Samyn des Dames 2017

Spending so much time covering races makes it difficult not to get invested in the careers of some of the riders, especially those on teams we work with. That made today’s result at Le Samyn des Dames extra special. Sheyla is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Every race she’ll greet you with a big […]

Omloop van het Hageland 2017

So that’s the first weekend of the season done already! Omloop van het Hageland includes one of my favourite cobbled climbs. As the race heads back to Tielt Winge for the local laps the go up the winding, tree-lined cobbled climb of Kerkstraat. I wish they’d include it on the four local laps too, once […]
