Stars align for first Strade Bianche Women

For the first time the professional women’s peloton will get a chance to duke it out on the famed white roads of Tuscany. Women’s cycling is enjoying a huge period of growth at the moment and the addition of the Strade Bianche to the calendar is an exciting and extremely positive move. It’s the first of RCS’ races to be opened up to  women and, if the first edition goes off well, could expand to the rest of their portfolio in the coming years.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
