BellaVelo and ride for InternationEll2
2019 was my third year in a row of the Tour of Flanders. There's something about this weekend that keeps me coming back for more. It's certainly not the most picturesque of countryside but it has charm. I think it's more about the energy of the weekend. There's so much drama, excitement, passion, fun and a few tears packed into 48 hours, it's like a whirlwind!
Although my journey on a road bike started just one year ago, I suppose my cycling story goes back to my teenage years. Back then I spent all my time in the pool! I trained up to 8 times a week (three mornings before school) and reached a respectable county / regional level. Exams took their toll, and sadly I gave up, but I guess my passion for competition and sport never died.
