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.

Six races into our season now and we’ve had six different winners from five teams. 2017 looks to be shaping up to be a great […]

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.
