Tour of Chongming Island 2018 – Stage 1

Racing has finally got underway at the Tour of Chongming Island. I met my moto driver before the race, with neither of us speaking each other’s language it was going to be interesting! His friend who spoke a little English help translate whilst we came up with a series of hand signals, and pats on […]

La Flèche Wallonne 2018

Well that’s a wrap for my Spring Classics season. Balint will be on photo duties this weekend for L-B-L. Time to go home and check it’s still there! I haven’t seen much of it since the season started. It’s hard to talk about Flèche Wallonne and not talk about the Mur but so much of […]

Amstel Gold Race 2018

Well that was a weird start to Ardennes Week! When all the big teams get in a break it sticks! After the split at the top of Keutenberg, if was tough to get some proper ‘action’ shots as everyone seemed happy with the status quo. I spent a lot of time yoyo-ing between the escapees […]

Suddenly everything seems […]

As expected, the afternoon TTT has all but ended the GC competition, with Boels Dolmans now comfortably occupying the top four spots in the General Classification. But a special mention goes to Virtu, securing […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 2

I’ve covered plenty of stages of the Healthy Ageing/Energiewacht Tour where it’s been a calm, sunny day. On days like that, it’s hard for people to animate the race given the terrain. Today, was not one of those days… Strong winds and rain at sign on made for a very cold start to the day. […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 1

Whilst making the drive to Heerenveen for the opening stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour it dawned on me that I hadn’t shot a time trial since the World Championships last September. Hoping tin the back of my mind I could still remember how I headed onto the course to find the best sector of […]

Ronde van Vlaanderen 2018

As we sped to the Muur van Geraardsbergen in the pouring rain, I had a lightbulb moment. A thought so clear and simple I couldn’t believe nobody else had thought of it. And could change the lives of countless people around the world as well as grow women’s cycling: Areas suffering from drought should consider […]
