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 racing was so fast. Usually when a race gets to 10km to go it’s time to think about rushing to the finish on the moto, but here the race is only just getting started with the leg sapping climb.
If you are enjoying our photos then please check out are Kickstarter campaign to publish a book celebrating the women’s road cycling season. But don’t wait too long as I write this there’s only 48 hours left to back the book and we’re so close to reaching our target we can almost touch it! (Fundraising period ends at 7pm BST on Saturday and if we don’t hit the target then the book won’t happen.) Please help us make it a reality. 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.
