Top five apps to improve your training

These days there are applications (‘apps’) for everything. Apps to style your boyfriend because he dresses like he’s stuck in the eighth grade, apps to find your soulmate, apps to translate your baby’s cries (yes, this exists), apps to face swap your face with your dog’s…what a time to be alive! The possibilities are endless. […]


Chloe Hosking: ‘My experience working with, for and under women for most of my career isn’t the norm, it’s a privilege’

Feminism is very in vogue at the moment. David Morrison, Beyoncé, Ronda Rousey all share a common goal: to see women achieve equal rights and opportunities in all aspects of life.  Whether that’s in the social, political or sporting arena, it doesn’t really matter. I’d argue that Ella is a feminist publication aimed at empowering, […]

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. It wasn’t the dream start she’d hoped for yesterday, taking a second place twice in the two intermediate sprints and messing up her sprint for the stage win, crossing the finish line in 17th place. In […]

Whilst the 25-year-old sprinter provides us with a personal account of what happens in the race each day, Valentina Scandolara is ‘gramming for us on the Ella account, […]
