Settled with a great three weeks training under the belt in Europe has kicked off my Spring nicely. Luck has been on our side this year with early spring being gloriously warm and dry – a dream for road cyclists (especially those from the southern hemisphere)!
I’m looking forward to lining up in my Aussie kit tomorrow with the Jayco AIS National team for my first UCI World Cup of the year – Trofeo Binda Citiglio, in the Varese region of Northern Italy.
Here is a nice race preview
After a somewhat rocky February I couldn’t be happier with my progress, having encountered an unfortunate accident being hit by a large vehicle while training in Adelaide on the 6th Feb – I’m considering my situation fortunate and grateful to be pinning numbers on!
While putting in the long hours of preparation training in my home base of Lucca, Toscana, I never forget to embrace the sensational seasonal goodness of all that surrounds me.
More from the road soon with plenty more racing on the women’s UCI circuit in the next weeks!

I’m pleased to have the support of Cycling Australia in 2014 for my European season ahead racing with the Jayco AIS Women’s Team…. thanks to Cycling News for the chat featured above!
A huge thanks to Scott Australia, via Shepard Cycles, for the support here on Aussie soil. I am proud to be continuing my representation of such a classy bicycle!
In 2014 I am proud to turn over a new leaf – a new partnership with NSWIS, and head coach Brad McGee, moving forward on my road to Rio 2016.
A decision oriented around best access to resources and coaching and support while in Australia supported by Cycling Australia – we all have a common goal and that is to stand on the World Championship and Olympic dais.
An important part in achieving this is to put in place the best possible performance pathway inclusive of everything from coaching, testing, sports science, sports medicine, strength and conditioning.
It is indeed a decision I have not taken lightly after receiving phenomenal career establishing support initially from Gary West then Tim Decker at SASI since I set foot on the pedals in early 2008.
Highlights of a brilliant week of fun, friendships, learning, sharing, messages, education and awareness among 30 incredible fundraisers. Always proud to be continuing my ambassadorship for the Amy Gillett Foundation.
