Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stages 3 a & b

A double day at the Healthy Ageing Tour and the sun came out to play. It seems Spring has finally sprung! As expected, the afternoon TTT has all but ended the GC competition, with Boels Dolmans now comfortably occupying the top four spots in the General Classification. But a special mention goes to Virtu, securing […]

Ronde van Drenthe 2018

Two days into the UCI Women’s WorldTour and we’ve had two ‘mud face’ races. The rain wasn’t as bad as had been forecast the day before, but it doesn’t take much for the muddy cobble sections to throw up the dirt. Apologies in advance, but I’m going to have a little whinge in today’s blog […]

Tour of California 2017

Before we start, lets get one thing out of the way… the organisers of the Tour of California really know how to do press rooms! At many women’s races you’re lucky to get a table with a plug socket, and resort to using your phone to upload photos because the internet is so slow, never […]

Elsy Jacobs Stage 1 2017

Two from two: it seems Anna van der Breggen is on for the perfect Ardennes week after completing her hatrick of wins at La Flèche Wallonne Femmes. It’s hard to believe the Spring is almost over already and it’s time for stage races to dominate the race calendar. Here’s a few photos from a sunny but freezing cold day […]

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. Last […]

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2017

The first race of the season is stressful for riders but also for those shooting the race too. I find it takes a couple of races to start hitting your stride again, getting into the rhythm of the races. It was one of the nice things about the Ladies Tour of Qatar. It was a […]
