Tour of Flanders Recon – Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg

Published on 11 Mar 2014
We took advantage of our location and good weather to see as much of the Flanders course as possible this week. This video shows the last important sections in the race – the Oude Kwaremont, and the Paterberg that we have to do twice. I can’t wait to race it this year now I’ve raced it once before!

Catching a Bidon

Published on 5 Jun 2013

Part of racing is making sure you eat and drink enough. Our team helpers (soigneurs, or swannies as we call them) stand on the side of the road usually at about the halfway point in a race to hand out bidons. This is how we grab them!

Footage taken from a typical Canberra Saturday: Bunch ride, multiple coffees and extra k’s with the local crew. I love Canberra!

EWT ITT prep

Published on 11 Apr 2013

The third day of the Energiewacht Tour had a 21km ITT and here is our preview of the course… Flat, fast and very windy! Shara stormed in for 3rd, Loes a very strong 4th and I was very happy with my 7th place. I’m happy that I am improving every time!

Orica-AIS March TTT Camp

We’ve spent a week together in Italy getting used to our new TT bikes and practicing some team time-trialling. We were blessed with some stunning weather and scenery! Definitely living the dream, especially when you add Italian coffee 🙂

Some snow for my Aussie friends! Mostly filmed at our mini AIS, the ETC. And how to say goodbye in Korean!

Italian Spring

Published on 16 Mar 2013

It was a perfect day in Italy for training along some of my favourite roads. I tried to capture the amazing snow-capped mountains in the distance but the camera didn’t quite do them justice. I included my favourite town on the Lago Maggiore, Laveno. Bellissimo!

The Surprise Adventure

Published on 12 Mar 2013

To all those who thought AIS selection camp was a bit hard….
The last Drenthe race was canceled so we had a leisurely Sunday waiting for our flight back to Italy the following morning. Luckily we checked the flight status early and it was canceled! This usually wouldn’t be a problem, but we had a very important meeting at 11am in Italy to make… Our team staff were already a long way down the road home, so it was a long night of travel for us three tired roadies.

OHN Pre-ride

Published on 1 Mar 2013

First day in Belgium, freezing conditions. The GoPro handlebar mount did not like the cobbles! I had to catch the camera at the end of the video before it hit the stones…

Italian traing day – Piccolo Stelvio

Published on 27 Feb 2013

I still practicing with using my GoPro and editing the film. This is my first go!
This was one of the first training days since arriving in Italy for the season. Gu and I went out in the afternoon when its warm (10 degrees!) and did the course that we did our World’s preparation on last year. It includes the Piccolo Stelvio, a 2min steep climb near our house. We rode it hard that day and then did a max sprint at the top on the flat section. My sprint in the was 995Watts! I wish I had a camera on the back to see if Gu was actually suffering, she was one my wheel the whole time!
