Emakumeen Bira 2018 – Stage 4

And that’s Emakumeen Bira done for another year. Today’s stage was off the charts beautiful. The Urkiola Park is stunning, you really should visit, even if it’s not to see a bike race but just to soak up the views. As much as I enjoyed today, I’m pretty pleased it’s time to head home. Those […]

Emakumeen Bira 2018 – Stage 3

Looking out at the wall-to-wall blue skies just a few of hours before the race, I looked at my weather app and back at the blue sky. Rain? Really? No, it must be wrong! It wasn’t… We’d been out and driven the stage in the morning. The course was super-hard, not just the climbs but […]

Emakumeen Bira 2018 – Stage 2

I’m working with a new moto pilot here at Emakumeen Bira. Greg has been working at bike races for eight years but this is his first time at a women’s event. I think he’s been impressed with the standard of racing. As we followed the final riders into the finish yesterday he was pointing at […]

Emakumeen Bira 2018 – Stage 1

There are no easy stages at Emakumeen Bira (unless you’re going to take it easy in the TT). After the first hour out and back along the gorge it was up and down all evening to the finish. It was a hard stage to shoot as well as race: Constantly switching from dark to bright […]

Durango Durango Emakumeen Saria 2018

Durango-Durango, the race that’s so good they named it twice! Well that might be stretching it a bit. This is my third time at Emakumeen Saria, Balint was here last year. Every year, I’ve been here I’ve come so close to missing the finish, today was no different. The last time in 2016 I stepped […]

Women’s Tour de Yorkshire 2018 – Stage 2

And that’s our Spring officially finished! 29 race days in seven countries. There’s now a little break before Balint makes his way to the USA for Tour of California whilst I head to Spain for Emakumeen Saria and Bira. It’s been my first time covering Tour de Yorkshire (Balint was here last year). Whilst standing […]

Women’s Tour de Yorkshire 2018 – Stage 1

That was an early start today in Beverley for Tour de Yorkshire. When your alarm time starts with a five it’s always too early! Thankfully the sunrise start didn’t deter people coming out to watch the race and Yorkshire was showing off with beautiful weather shining across the countryside for most of the day. Here’s […]

Tour of Chongming Island 2018 – Stage 3

The Tour of Chongming Island is a wrap for 2018. Stage three got off to a rather panicked start. For some reason all the photo motorbikes line up behind the race in China. Which I don’t understand, it adds in an unnecessary passing of the peloton, than if they parked ahead of the start line […]

Tour of Chongming Island 2018 – Stage 2

It’s always nice when you get ‘new’ people on the podium but especially for Charlotte as I’ve seen her work her ass off for others so often in the years I’ve been shooting races but not made an appearance on the podium. Also I remember Anastasia Iakovenko in a break on the same stage last year […]
