Giro Rosa 2018

I’m finally back home from after following the Giro Rosa and La Course there’s a chance to take a breath and look back at the last two weeks of racing. I have a love/hate relationship with the Giro Rosa. I love the stages, they’re often unlike anything else we have all season. I love that […]

Strade Bianche 2018

There’s no other word for yesterday’s Strade Bianche than brutal. Even in good conditions it is one of the most demanding courses on the calendar. Throw in the weather conditions and it’s hard to verbalise how tough it was. Looking at the forecast there was no getting away from it, I was getting wet whatever […]

Gran Premio Beghelli 2017

So that’s it, after almost 90 race days our season is over! Time to put the cameras away for a few weeks and try not to travel anywhere for a while before it all begins again in the lead up to 2018. (How futuristic does 2018 sound?!) If you’ve enjoyed our photos this year then […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 10

So that’s the Giro Rosa wrapped for another year. The Naples region has a bit of a reputation for crime so we were a little wary of walking around with expensive camera equipment hanging from our bodies before the stage. But there was nothing to fear. A local even brought me into a church to […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 9

Inaccurate course information on stages at the Giro Rosa is nothing new. Usually it’s a ‘secret’ climb or they enter a town from a different road to the one stated in the race book. Today’s stage was something else… Unbeknownst to us the race course had been changed. It seems teams were notified of the […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 8

A few days ago, I started my blogpost saying that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. We stayed in an awful B&B last night, but the dinner near Baronissi was probably our most memorable of our dinners so far. You win some, you lose some. Today’s tough bit was the heat (obviously) and the […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 7

Unreliable course directions are a major course of frustration at the Giro Rosa. The road book lacks sufficient detail and rarely match what is raced on the day. But today that worked in our favour. We were keen to cover the major climb but there was an element of jeopardy in making that decision…  could […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 6

The situation behind the finish line at the Giro Rosa is always tricky. The near-complete lack of enforcement of the rules mean that the organisers not only place the photographers line way too close  to the finish line itself in case a sprint stage, but there is also very little control over who gets to […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 5

The Giro Rosa has a track record in recent years for brutal time trials and this year was no exception. We’d looked at the route on Streetview but that really didn’t do it justice. On the way to the start this morning we drove the route and it was tougher than we could ever have […]

Giro Rosa 2017 Stage 4

You win some, you lose some. Today, we were not winning. Sean came up with a cunning plan of covering five spots, plus the finish. We had no idea that it would end up being one of the most hectic days of the year. We got to the first spot, but Sean warned me that […]
