Worlds Elite Women’s Time Trial 2017

Not going to lie, I could feel my eyes getting a little wet watching Annemiek’s celebrations today. I really wanted to be there for the winning moment, whoever was going to win, which meant not straying too far from the start/finish area during the race. It was definitely worth the sacrifice. Hopefully journalists can stop […]

Hello hills! You don’t realise you miss varied terrain until you don’t have it.

I woke this morning to pouring rain drumming against the Velux window in the B&B. Opening my eyes it still looked dark outside. ‘Plenty of time for it to pass over before it gets light’ I thought and rolled over to go back to sleep. 30 seconds later my alarm started blaring! The rain poured […]

All eyes might be on Sunday for Ronde van Vlaanderen but that doesn’t mean the racing stops in the build up. Some of the big names are saving themselves for Sunday but there was still a competitive field at the Pajot Hills Classic. (I really don’t think races that are two years old should be […]

Gent Wevelgem 2017

The last two year’s at Gent Wevelgem have been off the charts windy but today, Summer seemed to have come early to Belgium. Aeroplane trails being the only imperfections on a clear blue sky. A bit like a reversed version of Lotta Lepistö’s national champion jersey. Here’s a few photos from the day. Next up […]

Ronde van Drenthe 2017

Covering the Spring races means countless hours spent driving alone with the radio blaring through the speakers. Jumping from one station to the next, trying to avoid station jingles sticking in my head. Each year there seems to be one song that follows me around the airwaves and ends up becoming my soundtrack to the Spring.
