Boels Ladies Tour 2018 – Stage 3

We’ve reached the halfway point of the Boels Ladies Tour already! There are some races you really look forward to shooting. They’re either guaranteed to be super-exciting or have some beautiful spots for photos. This wasn’t one of those days… but I am super-happy for Amalie getting the win. She’s one of the nicest people […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2018 – Stage 2

Day two at the Boels Ladies Tour and seven laps of that climb really took it’s toll on the peloton. When Annemiek went away solo the stage looked like a foregone conclusion but Annemiek kept it interesting by adding a bit of extra distance to the course in the closing kilometres after taking a wrong […]

Boels Ladies Tour 2018 – Prologue

I have little mental leaderboards in my head that rank races on certain criteria. Points related to things that make my time at races easier or more fun. e.g. best accreditation process, best route info, speed of turning around podium presentations etc. The leaderboard for ‘Best Press Rooms’ has a stand out winner, in another […]

Amstel Gold Race 2018

Well that was a weird start to Ardennes Week! When all the big teams get in a break it sticks! After the split at the top of Keutenberg, if was tough to get some proper ‘action’ shots as everyone seemed happy with the status quo. I spent a lot of time yoyo-ing between the escapees […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 4

The wind came out to play for the penultimate day at the Healthy Ageing Tour. Within a few kilometres gaps in the peloton began to show and the race soon became four or five smaller races within a race. I still haven’t got used to this taking photos in the sun malarkey. Suddenly everything seems […]

Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 – Stage 1

Whilst making the drive to Heerenveen for the opening stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour it dawned on me that I hadn’t shot a time trial since the World Championships last September. Hoping tin the back of my mind I could still remember how I headed onto the course to find the best sector of […]

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 […]

Drentse 8 2018

I think this is my fifth time covering the Drenthe races and over the years I’ve grown quite fond of Dwingeloo, the village that hosts Drentse 8. It’s a cute little place centred around a village green with a thatched bandstand, surrounded by a disproportionate number of nice cafés and restaurants given the population. There’s […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 5

Hello hills! You don’t realise you miss varied terrain until you don’t have it. The Limburg hills were a welcome change of scenery from the week so far and there were huge crowds out to see the race off in Stamproy. Following the final few kilometres on Twitter with Annemiek and Anna battling it out […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 4

As we reach the end of the season I think everyone’s a little weary or has an eye on Worlds. Much of the pre-race chat is around the race of how many races people have left this year (I have 12 race days, if you we’re wondering). It was great to see Lisa Brennauer getting […]
