La Course 2017

Races in the mountains are rare in women’s cycling. Today at La Course is our only real mountain top finish of the entire season. It makes days like these extra special! At 67km it was a very short stage so cramming in those all important photo opportunities, especially when much of the first hour of […]

2017 Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour – Stage 6

All good things come to an end – and the Thuringen Rundfahrt is no exception. I didn’t know what to expect, other than Sean said that I would like this race. And he was right.

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 7

Unreliable course directions are a major course of frustration at the Giro Rosa. The road book lacks sufficient detail and rarely match what is raced on the day. But today that worked in our favour. We were keen to cover the major climb but there was an element of jeopardy in making that decision…  could […]
