Newport Nocturne 2018 Photos

The Newport Nocturne was an biennial race, first taking place in 1970 before stopping in the early 1990s. It returned in 2001 before once again stopping in 2014. 2018 saw its glorious return. A women’s race started off the evening, Biemme-Juniper-Echelon’s Nikki Juniper won that race, with teammates Jo Tindley and Gabriella Shaw making up the rest of the podium. A men’s race followed the...

Rutland – Melton CiCLE Classic Photos

After spending my Spring taking photos in Belgium/France for E3 Harelbeke, Gent Wevelgem, the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix today was a chance to take some race photos more locally. The Rutland – Melton CiCLE Classic is a race at 1.2 level, so a few rungs below the races above, but is one of the most important one-day races held in the UK each year....

Saracen RC Open TT 2017

This was to be my first time trial in a little while, having busied myself with sportives and managing to overdo things and strain a knee after the Civil Service races. It was also another couple of firsts. My first go on the K33/10D circuit just south of Alcester in Warwickshire and my first time trial ridden with a power meter. Riding to Power A...
