OVO Energy Women’s Tour 2019 – Stage 2

Driving over Dartford Crossing yesterday was a bit like entering Mordor: the clouds couldn’t have been darker and on the other side, a mighty storm awaited indeed. We all saw the forecast for today (clouds and maybe some sunshine), but it was difficult to believe that it could actually happen. So, it was pleasantly surprising […]

Ronde van Drenthe 2019

Well that was eventful. Leading up to the race all the talk had been about the crazy wind that had been blasting the region all week. After breakfast on Sunday it was incredibly calm outside, there were even a few hints on blue sky overhead! As the race went on there was a bit of […]

Tour of Guangxi 2018

So that’s it, the 2018 season is officially over! I know people give races in China a hard time but the criticism is quite unfair. As far as race safety goes they’re in a different league to any other race on the calendar, they offer great prize money and good hotel facilities for the teams […]

That’s a wrap on a fun few weeks in Scandinavia. I don’t think their can be much doubt now that Vos is definitely back! Four wins from the last four road races doesn’t happen by chance. Now time to go home and get ready for Plouay next weekend closely followed by the Boels Ladies Tour. […]

Ladies Tour of Norway 2018 – Stage 2

It was windy today, often really windy. And then it rained, and rained some more. But not everyday can be blue skies and unicorns and even in less than perfect conditions Norway is still super-pretty! It’s the final day in Norway on Sunday already. The time seems to have flown by. I guess that’s the […]

Vårgårda Team Time Trial 2018

During the course of the season I’ll spend upwards of 180 days away from home. I’m not sure you can still call a place home if you’re away so much but anyway… I get to see some truly beautiful places, but they aren’t the places that I enjoy visiting the most. Races take you back […]

Gent Wevelgem – Elite Women 2018

The new women’s course for Gent-Wevelgem is awesome! Last year I didn’t even bother leaving the Kemmelberg between the ascents in the middle of the race, as there wasn’t much to see before they’d be back again. But this year I wanted to be everywhere! In the races so far this year I’ve been ‘stressing’ […]

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 […]

Boels Rental Ladies Tour 2017 Stage 3

Day three at the Boels Rental Ladies Tour and time for another time trial. Thankfully the weather improved greatly on the drive to Roosendaal. TTs can be tough to shoot as you rarely get more than one chance to catch the key riders but today I found a spot where I had riders coming at […]
