Chloe Hosking’s stage four diary of Qatar: ‘This race was a great showcase of women’s cycling’

What a week it has been! With eight of the top 10 UCI teams having battled it out in the Qatari deserts, the 2016 road season is now well and truly underway. After Kirsten Wild (Team Hitec) won the first stage in a bunch sprint with ease, for a moment it looked like a fifth victory for her in […]

Chloe Hosking’s stage three diary of Qatar: ‘Today was my worst day in the desert ever’

The Tour of Qatar is sometimes considered a boring race, with fast stages, a compact peloton, together for the entire race, ending in a bunch sprint (and in the Ladies’ edition, it’s usually Kirsten Wild who wins). Yesterday’s stage proved the race can actually be really exciting and it’s the riders that make a race interesting or […]


Chloe Hosking’s stage two diary of Qatar: ‘Suddenly there were 26 riders at the front. But still no Wild’

Slightly disappointed, yet determined, Chloe got to the start of the second stage of the Ladies Tour of Qatar today.

In […]

The best non-compliment compliments for cyclists

Christmas is meant to be about giving, or so I’ve been told. Overwhelmingly however, I think we tend to get caught up in the hype of writing our wish lists or talking about what we got from Santa (like that awesome new Garmin that measures your power, heart rate, cadence, and predicts the future!). I […]
