The new women’s course for Gent-Wevelgem is awesome! Last year I didn’t even bother leaving the Kemmelberg between the ascents in the middle of the race, as there wasn’t much to see before they’d be back again. But this year I wanted to be everywhere!
In the races so far this year I’ve been ‘stressing’ about trying to get the photos I think people want, and as a result not really enjoying the races or always being particularly happy with the photos. Today, I decided to let all that go and just shoot what I want… and it was great!
I think my moto driver might have thought I was mad for the first part of the race. We left a few minutes before the start and drove for twenty kilometres without taking a single photo. Nothing much was going to happen then and I’d seen a large window on Streetview that I really wanted to check out before the race arrived. Just to get an idea if the reflections might work and it did! From there on the course was great and with so many potential ‘cut offs’ you barely have to pass the peloton.
Next up, Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday!
