Boels Ladies Tour 2019 - Prologue

Usually at time trials you get one shot to make the shot for each rider, the layout of today’s TT was more like a cyclocross course (minus the mud), I reckon if you wanted to follow one rider around the track during their 3.8km dash you could have seen them seven or eight times! At some spots on the course it was almost making me dizzy: there’d be a rider coming from my right, one in front, one behind. Where to point the camera! 😀

Below is a small selection of photos from the race. As you may know by now, we’re almost at the end of our Kickstarter for The Road Book 2019, a 240 page coffee table style book of the women’s road season. Please check it out on Kickstarter and share with your friends.
