Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 3

Day three and we were back on familiar turf. There’s been a stage here with similar courses for the last two, maybe in even three years (I lose count sometimes). Today we learnt that 4G in Italy isn’t always what’s on the box. Trying to upload photos on the road after the race and nothing. Desperately trying to will photos to upload and nothing! Two photos in 15 minutes, three in 25. We were getting desperate! Driving 20 minutes out of our way to a McDonalds to use their WiFi and it wasn’t working. The RoadChef across the road was no quicker than our phones. It shouldn’t be that hard! But we got there eventually.

In more positive news, we were almost as happy for Hannah’s win today as she was. She’s been close on so many occasions and that roar of achievement as she crossed the line will be something I’ll remember for a long time.

Have you checked out our Kickstarter campaign? We want to publish a book celebrating the women’s road cycling season. You can find out more here.

As you’ve made it this far you’ll definitely enjoy our women’s cycling photo book, but we need your help to make it happen. You can find out more and support the book on Kickstarter. We have a bunch of cool rewards including a copy of the book with your name in, a book and a wall calendar or even a photo shoot with us. But don’t wait too long, if we don’t hit the target by 22nd July then the book won’t happen.
