CJ Farquharson has collated some of her best images of 2012 for Cyclingnews in the latest of our photographer's look back at the season.
And it's been a long one for Farquharson having begun the year on January 1 at the Jayco Bay Cycling Classic in Geelong. Over nine months, Farquharson covered every Women's World Cup event, racking up around 40,000 kilometres of travelling by car and the same again in the air. In 2012, Farquharson also covered the London Olympic Games and the UCI Road World Championships in Limburg.
All the standouts of the 2012 season are here - Evelyn Stevens (Specialized - lululemon), Judith Arndt (Orica-AIS) and of course, Marianne Vos (Rabobank). Farquharson was also on hand for the epic showdown on the track between two great rivals, Anna Meares and Victoria Pendleton.
